It may have been all of the confidence gained while traveling the world eating worms and tackling The Price of Beauty, but Jessica Simpson has left her mom jeans behind for her newest fashion statement: her curve-hugging, calf-length sheath dresses paired with simple platform pumps. While she has endured much discussion about her figure, the star has toned down her flashier style while playing up her curves in a hot pink L’Wren Scott sheath at The Late Show with David Letterman and a red-hot dress at Good Morning America. Add on newly-darker, honey blonde locks, and the 29-year old reality star is certainly looking more sophisticated than ever. But is that a good thing — sound off! Tell us: What do you think of Jessica’s new ladylike look?David Yi

She does look very nice, but reminds me of some of the dresses I wore in junior high going to a strict baptist school?

She doesnt have the shape for some of the dressses…they make her look large. Sometimes larger up top isnt a better thing either. Sick of hearing about the “Napalm” comment…..I mean, is wasnt powerful enough to keep a man in her life! So Jess….there’s more to life than thinking you’re sexy.

Mike R. on

Ever since she basically attacked Carrie Underwood I’ve lost any respect I may have had for her. Carrie is very classy.

Mark on

Every interview I’ve seen with her talking about the Napalm comment is different. One time she’s laughing and another time she seems proud of it or pretends to be upset then contradicts herself about how it makes her feel. John, Tony and especially Nick is way better off. Nick has one hottie now!! They all seemed to have at least one chance last year to get back with her if they wanted to. Looks like her Napalm is’nt all it’s cracked up to be.

Juli on

Well, she’s tried everything else to stay in the public eye…why not try to dress like she’s got some class????? Geez Jess, what’s next when this fails??????

M.E. on

Are those red shoes supposed to match the dress?

Ron on

She’s proud John said what he did about her….it’s given her something to talk about. She’s grasping at any straw that comes her way. She’s on her way to 30 years old and still acts dumb as a stump.

M Johnson on

She wants to be as cute as she was on the newlyweds….thing is, she’s getting older and the act doesnt work anymore. She’s having to search for a new “thing” to keep her in the public eye. You’re right, Carrie Underwood is classy in every sense of the word. Jessica only wishes she was such a class act. Clothes only covers up the real problem, Jessica.

BJ on

LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

Her “Napalm” is fizzling!!!!!!! What a joke. Wonder what TOny thinks about the Napalm comment. Ew!

Mason W on

Agreed:

She messed up leaving Nick…
She messed up becoming a country artist (while at the same time Carrie got Entertainer of the Year)..
She’s messed up several relationships…obviously..
She acts like a lost dog….”What do I do now”???

B.C on

Too funny!!!!!

Cause she’s a joke!

Get a hubby and pop out some kiddos!

Maybe she can do that right!!

Eboni on

It’s not a good look for her at all.. it’s aging her…

mike nice on

Jess, you look beautiful now,you looked beatiful then. Dont pay any attention to judgemental people. What should matter to everyone out there is this.Did I try to be a good person today? Was I nice to everyone I met? If your answer is yes,you will have sweet dream, If your honest answer is no,try harder tomorrow.

Johnny on

What do we think of her new matronly look?

I’ve seen many other overweight women who look much better.

Samantha on

Is it just me or is one Carrie Underwood fan posting over and over? Move on.

Anyway, I think the red dress looks great on her. The pink one is just okay.

Mary on

These dresses are simply not good looks on her. The hems should be shorted to above the knee. Also the sleeves on the red dress are over-accentuating her shoulders.

Robyn on

Wow, you people must have nothing better going on in your life then to pick on Jessica Simpson and how she looks. How about you put up a picture of yourselves and let everyone criticize how you look and talk about all the mistakes you’ve made in your life.

She is icky! Don’t like her, never liked her and think that Nick, John, Tony, and Billy all came to their senses just in time! Well, maybe Nick was a little late!
