Get the Look: Jessica Simpson's Red Beach Dress

04/05/2007 at 01:54 PM ET

Jessica Simpson and boyfriend John Mayer are heating things up Down Under while Mayer’s tour continues. Between performances, the two got a chance to hit Byron Beach, where Jess showed off an adorable red dress. We are loving her new hippie chic style — could it be the influence of her laid-back guy? This red and white pocket jumper is actually an old vintage piece, but we have found some very similar ones that will be perfect additions to your spring wardrobe. Now only if a rockstar boyfriend come along with it.

Get the Look:
Super Suite Seventy Seven Melinda Pocket, $245,

Seven Hills cotton halter dress with drawstring empire waist, $98,

Red Sweetheart dress with white heart buttons, on sale $40 from $70,

Island dress with fern print, spaghetti strap and front pockets, $23,

It is Alice Mccall S/S 06-07 Apron Advice Pinafore – Au $385. It looks better on smaller busted individuals in my opinion. It is a nice dress, but made out of Silk so not really beachy? Don’t much like it on her

yet another bad choice. We know you’re hanging out with groovy John lately, but hippie looks bad on you Jess. Go back to Glam.

This dress makes her look like 20 lbs. of sugar in a 5 lb. sack. She needs to keep her breasts contained.

I am surprised People dropped the ball with this one. Definitely not a vintage piece. You can see it on Alice McCall’s website – it’s in the autumn/winter 06 collection. The model is wearing a white t-shirt with it. And for those of you who go braless even though you aren’t wearing a swim suit at the beach – why?? Your breasts still need support whether you are at the beach or not.

Jessica looks cute in the dress (save for the lack of support)- although it is odd to wear a silk dress to the beach, but if I had money to burn, maybe I’d do it too! And I am pretty sure none of us know why she has changed her look recently – it could be any of the above!

And for those of you criticizing the people who are critiquing Jessica, why are you on this site anyway – that’s what it’s here for! As a side note, if you want to be famous, you should look good all the time – that’s what you sign up for!

Are you people nuts?! The fact that a well-liked celebrity wears something doesn’t make it cute! Jessica Simpson is a gorgeous woman, but she looks AWFUL in that red atrocity!! Maybe it would be bearable on someone else, but it is NOT right for her…where was her fashion consultant that day??? They should be fired if they approved that! Nice try and all, Jessica, but you failed this time. Try again!
