Jessica Simpson's Makeup and Photoshop-Free Cover Shoot

Since her infamous ‘mom jeans’ debacle which caused a major buzz months back, Jessica Simpson has been out to challenge the concept of beauty–and she’s taking her boldest step yet by going totally makeup-free on the cover of Marie Claire. “I don’t have anything to prove anymore. What other people think of me is not my business,” The Price of Beauty star says of what prompted her to show the real her, even air-drying her hair for the shoots. Inspired by her own A Beautiful Me initiative, which encourages women to be comfortable in their skins, Jessica is the first to admit that while she feels confident showing off a totally natural look, it doesn’t mean she’s through with changing up her look. “If I’m in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back. But I also like bed head,” she says. Tell us: What do you think of Jessica as a fresh-faced cover-girl? –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

There’s no denying that Jessica is a beautiful girl. But true confidence comes from within, it’s great to see that she has seemingly grabbed a hold of that.

Love it!

I love it. She looks beautiful.Delana has it absolutely right.

john beaner on

that aint her!!!

Good for her!

Anissa on

Maybe she’ll try the more natural look from now on (and look better), though the part I like best about the cover is it’s a real smile and not her “look I’m sexy” one. Oh and not to be mean, but the no photoshopping bit would be more effective if they actually showed more of her body and not just a basic headshot…

Roxana on

She’s a beautiful woman no matter what she wears and Delana, you’re totally right. I still don’t get how a trully talented singer like Jessica has to talk only about her weight. I can understand her frustation as base of her low self esteem; it seems to improve with the years though

kay on

she looks great

Elizabeth on

I’ve always thought she looks much prettier without all the make-up on. you can see the real her. and good for her showing us that the notion of beauty is different for everyone.

DB on

She is a beautiful person inside and out, but that is not make-up free, unless she has had her eyeliner tattooed and eyelashes inhanced and I guess she wet her lips to make them shiny.
