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!

Amaryllis, unhealthy fat? wow you are an idiot.

I think we should boycott all magazines who are guilty of such extreme airbrushing. For shame!
It is the people behind these airbrushing decisions who are to blame for the lack of self esteem you see today with many girls and women.
It’s time we take back our right to celebrate who we are as individuals, all shapes & sizes, naturally beautiful.

she’s tired of being a barbie type, so the magazine photoshops a few dress sizes off her?

Nothing wrong with her being bigger than a size 2.

Ease up everyone. She didn’t let herself go. Give her a break. She looks beautiful and happy.

Amaryllis~ “Unhealthily fat”… “let herself go” are you all smoking crack? She’s a goddess! Who ever said beautiful means anorexic looking. Just because she’s embracing her curves, does not mean she’s letting herself go. I am a woman with curves and it has taken me a very long time to embrace them and realize that I will never be the skinny girl. Have you ever seen her in person? It is true that television and cameras do add weight. She has no control over what the magazine people do after the shoot. It happens all the time. Good for her for deciding to not play into the whole “perfect body” thing. She’s a role model for all young girls out there and you should all be ashamed of yourselves. Angela~ thank you for being the voice of reason on this ridiculous thread.

@samantha!! That’s what i’m saying. They are all idiots and jealous that they aren’t getting the attention. Good for @Amaryllis that you can still fit in your prom dress at an old age…not all people can. I bet your not as pretty as she is though. It’s probably about time your fam photoshops your wrinkles and crows feet…just sayin

YEEEAAAA JESS!! I am so glad that you finally realized it doesn’t matter what idiot’s who think if your not a size 0, make’s a beautifull women… We are all unique, and it’s really the whole thing, mind body and soul that make’s us beautifull. When I was at my fittest and thinnest, I still thought i was fat. When I was at my ideal weight and very fit, my doctor told me I was too skinny.. she messed with my thyroid meds’ and up went my weight again. It’s frustrating to be on a weight rollercoster. It’s all in what YOU feel comfortable in. You are so beautifull and precious on the inside and out. Be happy, Sweety and be healthy. That is all we need to ask of ourselves. And to H E doulble hockey sticks to all the vain people in this world!!!! They really need to look in the mirror and ask themelve’s if they are perfect. There is nothing beautifull or sexy about looking anorexic!!!

Is it me, or does anyone else thinks she may regret ending her marriage with Nick Lachey?
