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 recently spotted her a few weeks ago in LA and she is actually thin. She looks really great and healthy. She’s gorgeous no matter what she looks like. Who cares if these pics are altered. I did the same thing to all my wedding photos! So what…. skinny is out, full is in ladies! Get with the program. Beautiful isn’t a zero, blonde hair, and blue eyes anymore. Look at the girls on Jersey Couture. They are healthy beautiful young women!

Oh wow! I can’t believe how many idiotic, hateful comments are on here…Grow up! and I’d like to see what you all look like…i would bet $$$ that some of the people making comments about her being fat are heavy themselves and those that are skinny are jealous of her curves….Give women a break!!! the reason our self esteem is so low is not because of the men in our lives, it is because as women, we tear each other apart….Do I love JS’s music, acting, etc???? No, I would never tear her apart….She is beautiful and clearly smarter than most give her credit for…Ease up and get a clue…Look in the mirror and truly see if you are the person you should be…my guess would be NO!!!! For those that are not acting like ridiculous, immature, catty teenagers, good for you!!!

No way that’s Jessica. Her waist is now wider
than her hips and her bust sits right on top
of the waist. Her hair is thin and horrible.
She in only 30 years old and has aged like a
50 year old woman with three kids. Her figure
is call dumpy!!

@ Denne, I was thinking the same thing.

I think Jessica Simspon is beautiful and talented no matter what size she is. I’m glad she’s embracing her curves. As long as you are healthy and happy that is the only thing that matters.

The top picture with the green jacket is definitely photoshopped. Her waist is not that small, just look up recent pics of her in street clothes from July. This is a really bad cover story for this magazine to run. If they are trying to promote “don’t be ashamed of how you look”, then why airbrush and photoshop the model you use?? It doesn’t make sense!

The first picture is totally photoshopped… look how her fingers on the one hand are chopped off…

Marie on

Both photos have been photo shopped. Too bad you can’t do that in real life!

Let herself Go??????? how rediculous of a statement. That’s the problem with today’s day, she’s a beautiful woman, if looking like the way she does people think she has “let herself go” then society needs to wake up. I agree that these photos have been photo shopped but seeing her in other photos where she is not “posing” she looks GREAT!
