Jessica Simpson Is Done Trying To Look Like 'The Perfect Barbie Type'

Jessica Simpson‘s fluctuating weight never ceases to make headlines, but for once, the blonde bombshell isn’t giving it a second thought. Fresh off her globe-trotting journey for her VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty , Simpson has come to realize “we all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that’s not always what’s beautiful. It’s about making peace with yourself.” Now, the Lucky September cover girl has finally come to terms with her own body issues and is embracing her curvy hourglass figure. And for Simpson, that means learning how to dress for her body. Simpson dishes, “I’m a huge Jean Paul Gaultier fan. His pieces make my waist look good. Yes, they’re an investment, but I’ll have them when I’m old and gray.” On a more casual note, Jessica relies on Tucker’s blousy, long-sleeved silk tops. “Whenever I wear them, I make sure to show off my legs a little bit!” Her bottoms of choice? “I like skinny jeans, but I wear them a bit baggy and lower on my hips and roll them up at the bottom,” reveals the beauty. And of course, her favorite pairs are from her new denim line–which she donned for her cover shoot!

she looks uncomfortable in the cover pic.. and the fullness in her face does not match the size of her body… it looks like they photoshopped some of her body away

Tracy on

Denne~~I totally agree!!

lesley smith on

I agree, too.I think she let herself go

@Denne, so true! If you look at pictures of Jessica from when she was a teenager, she was naturally a bit chubby, but still beautiful. What has happened is that she has dieted over the years to become stick thin (as she was in the “Dukes of Hazard” movie), but that is not how she is built naturally. I think the pictures above show how Jessica looks without excessive diet and exercise; but it is clear that her body has been photoshopped, which is why her body and face look disproportionate.

I agree..her body does not look right. If you see current photos of her, she’s a lot heavier.

Just another example of JS saying something that doesn’t come from her heart..She talks about being comfortable but she isn’t…if she was she would not let these mags photoshop her body..she looks un-natural and uncomfortable….For once it would be great to see her being truly honest….

@VanM never gonna happen, she’s the bill o’reilly of celebs, all spin zero honesty, tell the people what you think they wanna hear and make money from it (mag covers, clothing line etc.)

She can’t act, her singing career isn’t great, but she is always in the tabloids. Why does anyone care if she’s fat or thin? She should just get over herself and find a real job.

[…] former singer tells Lucky magazine that she’s learning to live with her new curves and she’s dressing it […]

OMG! It’s totally a photoshop. Look at above photo. Her head is too big, and her body is really photoshoped.
