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!

OH MY!Photo shop all the wayyyyyyyy…..and “SHE’S DONE TRYIN’ TO LOOK THE PERFECT BARBIE TYPE” LMAO!!!
these magazines are the one’s to put all this perfect image of a woman ahh..”size 2″ in all of us.

BT on

Doesn’t look like her at all!

Uh, people, she’s a size 8 now. In Dukes of Hazzard, she was a 2. The camera always makes you look 15-20 lbs heavier. A size 8 is still small! Give it a rest! That means if you are calling her fat, you have to be a size 6, 4, or a 2. And, I bet most of you aren’t. It is people like you that push women down and then complain because you feel judged! She’s very successful and doing what she loves. Why does her size even matter? Huh?

Good, because we were “done” with her along time ago. Why does she keep showing up everywhere?

Donna C on

As long as she’s happy that is all that matters.

If she’s so comfortable why is all the pictures in this magazine article photoshopped to the high heaven?

LNimms on

@Lesley Smith “She let herself go”? She’s a size what? 6. Wow, I’d like to see a snapshot of you.

BB on
