Ashlee Simpson Strikes A Pose For Big Sister Jessica’s Clothing Collection: “We Keep It In The Family!”

When it was time to book a model to star in the Fall 2013 print campaign for her clothing collection, Jessica Simpson looked no further than her kid sister. The 33-year-old singer-turned-fashion mogul hired Ashlee Simpson, who could not have been happier.

“I have a pretty cool sister with an amazing sense of style, and I was honored to get to do the shoot,” Ashlee told People. “We keep it in the family. Jessica’s a fun one to work with. We were all having a good time, kicking dirt in pretty dresses.”

Of the shoot, directed by famed photographer Ellen von Unwerth, Ashlee added,  “They did tell us to look for ticks! And I was like, ‘Okay, I’m just going to roll in the dirt.’”

While mom Tina Simpson joked that the sisters can be differentiated simply by their bust size—“[Ashlee’s] boobs aren’t as big!” she said—Ashlee explained that the differences between the blondes’ style go much deeper. “[Jessica's] a bit more girly, and I kind of like to bring an edge to my looks,” said Ashlee. “I do like to be in dresses, I just like to toughen it. There’s a shot that I have a maroon dress on in, and it was so beautiful. I love that dress—it was my favorite.”

But Ashlee isn’t just a pretty face, of course. The 28-year-old serves as the co-creative director of Jessica Simpson Girls, Jessica’s youth line, and is also working on a line of her own. “It will be adult,” Ashlee told Life & Style. “It will definitely [be different from Jessica's line]. I think there’s a time and a place for certain outfits, and for me, it’s also about comfort and kind of finding your own way with clothes. Knowing there is a time to mix and match and what mixes and matches [is always important]. It’s always good to try, though!”
