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!

Just because she is a celeb doesn’t mean she should be teased or down graded…she’s doing what she loves and celebs get punished for it. How would you like it if people were like that to you for following your dreams and passions? butting into your personal life and always making you feel as if your not good enough? Even if the pic is photoshoped, u said it, it comes with the territory of being a celeb, so don’t blame her…she didn’t do it personally.

Unless she’s lost 30 pounds in the last two weeks those pictures are airbrushed. In those photos of her and her boyfriend in Italy she was VERY heavy.

Honestly, who gives a sheetz?

Totally agree, everyone; her head doesn’t match her body in that picture. I just read an article that an Ann Taylor model had been so Photoshopped, somebody mentioned it and the article showed both pictures. The woman looked like she had the hips of a 12-year-old. I think it’s shameful that magazine covers are SO altered, young girls want to look like that and don’t realize it isn’t even real.

So maybe she “let her self go”. How is that different than anyone else out there who isn’t in hollywood. Most out there let that happen as soon as they went to college LOL. She’s just not going to play the game anymore. Good for her. As long as she is trying to be healhty. That’s is seriously what matters most. Wish her the best of luck as she finds her way in life!

Can you say, “Photoshop”? Her head is the same width as her waist!

It’s amazing the REAL talent that’s out there and then the fake stuff [read: anything related to Jessica Simpson, one of the world’s biggest phonies!) that gets highlighted in magazines. Very perplexing.

If she really looks like that picture, why would she have to “learn to love her body”? That picture is so obviously Photoshopped. I’ve seen pictures of her recently and she is heavier than that magazine cover shows her to be. And a camera angle doesn’t make THAT much difference! Who do those people at Lucky Magazine think they’re kidding, anyway?

@Angela. The woman is on the border of being unhealtfully fat. I understand her problem having the same body type, but at 57 I still have close to the same body as I did at 25 through diet and exercise, and I can still wear my old prom dress.

folks, they photoshop every pic in the magazine. and its not the stars choice if they photoshop or not.
