Jersey Shore's Snooki is already one of the most recognizable names in reality TV, but that's not enough for this mini-mogul in the making. She's been expanding her brand exponentially, with a new perfume, hair and makeup line, tanning collection, nail polishes, glasses, and lipstick, and even that's not enough for her. She has a larger goal ... and surprising role model.

What star does Snooki want to emulate? Jessica Simpson!

Snooki recently told The Hollywood Reporter that not only does she enjoy and wear Jessica's clothing line, but her goal is to one day "be on Jessica Simpson's level with the clothes." Jessica, who was originally famous for her music, then for her reality show, now has a near billion-dollar clothing business, so that's actually a pretty lofty goal.

Snooks is already working on achieving it, though, even re-branding her line: Her new products will be released under the name "Snooki Couture by Nicole Polizzi," a change from plain old " Snooki by Nicole Polizzi." The revamp, Snooki told The Hollywood Reporter, is because "with 'couture' you think 'classy,' and I feel like I'm more classy and mature."

Hopefully the more mature line will be able to grow into the fashion empire Snooki desires.

Catch the next new episode of Jersey Shore on Thursday, November 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
