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! Hear more from Jessica on her favorite style and beauty secrets by picking up the September issue of Lucky or visiting luckymag.com. –Andrea DeSimone

Its funny because women are the pickiest when it comes to a women’s body, men dont care as long as you look good.

Honestly MEN LOVE CURVES!!!!! We like meat on your bones ladies. Girls like Jessica Simpson, America Ferrera, Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Garner, Kim Kardashian, Sandra Bullock ARE SEXY!!! They have natrual curves and meat on their bones.

Flat Butt Skinny girls like Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay Lohan, and girls built like drinking straws are NOT!!!! They have no shape and are in need of a burger.

But chics like Oprah, Rosie O’Fatso, Mo’Nique and The girl from the Precious movie are fat.
They need to back away from the table.

I think it was the great Greek poet Sir Mix A Lot that once said “I like big butts and I can not lie”

Ask any STRAIGHT man.

Jessica Simpson looks fabulous in person and on magazines. You never know what you’re looking at on a magazine, however. Regardless if she’s 5-10 lbs up or 5-10 lbs down, I commend her for standing up and saying that women just need to be normal! Only in America do we obsess over this ridiculous notion of perfection. The women and girls that the magazines have put in front of us for years do not represent us. They represent a dangerous extreme that goes beyond physical deprivation. It’s also mental deprivation that hits the very core of girls’ well-being.
