What Was She Thinking? Jessica Simpson at the Teen Choice Awards

08/21/2006 at 04:47 PM ET

Was Jessica Simpson so consumed with the stress of hosting an awards show that her ex-husband and his new girlfriend were both nominated for that she ignored her wardrobe? Jessica is known for being a clothes horse and an avid shopper, so we’re a little surprised at her lack-luster wardrobe on the show. From the see-through Jill Stuart lace shorts one-piece (left) to the unflattering tulip-skirted Miu Miu dress (middle), Jessica looked off her usual style standards. The satin bustier paired with baggy cargo pants and heels (right) veers into the inexplicable, leaving us scratching our heads. Still, Jessica did a good job handling awkward hosting duties. If only her outfits had as much grace.

I don’t Know What Jess was thinking but what I do Know is that the fist outfit choice should have had a warning sign posted on it. The others are still pretty bad but not as bad.


What was Jess thinking when she picked these FUGLY OUTFITS!!! Jessica is so pretty, but with the outfits she looks awful. Not to mention TACKY all over!

Not only were Jessica’s clothes awful, but she had on wayyyy too much eye makeup. My husband said she looked like a “lady of the night.” I don’t know what she was thinking! She is such a pretty girl and she just looked terrible on that show.

Those ARE unflattering photos…and those outfits are probably not her best choice. But she is usually a fashion icon for the younger generation and i love her and her style. she is a gorgeous woman and i admire her so much!
[too bad about that black bag-dress though.]

Wow….i guess its true that when you get divorced it really drains you. I didnt know your fashion sense got washed out too but Jessica made it quite evident that it does go as well.

from the comments so far, ppl are always like “what is she wearing? why are these fashion choices not like her usual ones?” maybe it has something to do with her sister and her sister’s ever-changing style…maybe she opted for a bit of a change that would cause some buzz as opposed to sticking to her usual safe style…i guess fashion is about trial and error…you see what works for you…i’m sure there is a reason she chose these outfits, even if not the most flattering…maybe she was just trying to cause a stir…i never really liked her style at award shows in general…

Well I love Jessica her clothes where not the best choice but she probably had alot distracting her poor thing just imagine having to be in the same ROOM AS YOUR EX AND HES PLACED RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU!!! plus no matter what she still looked beutiful goes to show she can make anything look good and she has nothing to worry about Nicks new girl looking better than her because Jess is sooooooooo muuuuuuuuuch better!

Ok, this is another example of someone trying too hard. She has no taste or whatsoever…Jessica Simpson, everything about your look is fake, from the orange skin, the fake lips, the huge hair extensions…the outfits are so unflattering…is exhausting just looking at you ! C’MON…were does all the money go to???
