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!

Seriously? If she has let herself go, the rest of us don’t stand a chance.

Life is short just be happy!

Regarding Jessica, she still has a great deal of growing up to do and maybe one fine day she will hopefully find happiness from within.

Isn’t she, herself, saying in the article that’s she done trying to be a Barbie type girl. At least she realizes it and she’s happy to be herself. I don’t get it; if she’s trying to be what she can’t be, it’s bad, and if she’s trying to be her normal self and be happy with it, it’s also bad. This girl is harmless; leave her alone. Pick on the Kardashians/Montag/Lohan–now they’ve got issues!!

I think Jessica Simpson is beautiful and she exudes confidence now. She has never been over a size 6 and there are a lot of women out there that would love to be a size 6! Who cares if she is curvy and has a few more pounds on her than last summer? Women attacking women about their looks is ridiculous and we need to start supporting each other and fight back against the warped description of beauty this world has. I watched the Price of Beauty and her transformation throughout the show was wonderful. She really grew throughout the show and she found herself much more through the process.

The expression on her face on that lucky cover she looks constipated, bad bad pic of her. I cant belive they publsihed that one. RE SHOOT!

That’s an unfortunate picture. She looks incredibly uncomfortable. I feel bad for her. She’s not even fat, but she and the public will never forget how skinny she was at one time. Too bad.

Rebecca on

She doesn’t look uncomfortable, she looks airbrushed. It looks like someone took off part of one side of her body in the second photo. She is a beautiful girl, but if you look at her in any real-life photo, she isn’t that slim. Instead, she has kickin’ curves. I am so disgusted that magazines continue to do this to the bodies of women on their covers, when, as in this case, in the interview the acceptance of self is what is put forth as the main message.

People are so cruel on

@Julia Sugarbaker. It is people like you that cause women and girls in this world to think low of themselves. How do you know so much about Jessica Simpson? I would love to see what you look like, I am quite sure you are absolutely perfect, or maybe you just think you are. You have no right to judge her or anyone else for that matter. Your comments are cruel and senseless. I really hope you do not have children.

denise on
