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!

Of course she isn’t comfortable….look at what you all are saying. Photoshop or not, we need to stop picking each other apart as women!

She does look uncomfortable on the cover. Also, clearly has been photoshopped! She is a bit bigger from recent pictures. The photoshopping cutting her size possibly could be the reason why she looks…odd.

I thought months ago she had accepted her “new body”….I’m sick of hearing about Jessica gaining and losing weight. Is this really news? And if I recall, last time she gained a little weight and was “happy with her body” she suddenly lost a bunch of weight, only to have it back on now…a flip/flop body weight is hardly news, but each time she gains weight it’s “I’m happy with my body!” only to lose the weight a few weeks later….please move on from this ridiculous C-level star.

Would you people shut up? I bet you don’t look like a perfect barbie doll. Would you want America making fun of you? I still think she’s gorgous!And ya know what? Thats her real head and body.Some people just have differnt proportions and shes rocking hers.

People are so cruel on

I cannot believe how many people on here criticize Jessica Simpson. I would love to see how perfect all of you are.

If she’s so worried about having peace with her body, why does she let them photoshop her into looking unrecognizable? That purple dress is cute, but she’s not nearly that thin in real life. I thought she was comfortable being the size she is. I guess not.

Jessica’s waist hasn’t been that tiny in six
years! Her waist is huge as is her bustline.
She really can’t wear much anymore being so short
too. However, the photo in the magazine “Lucky”
are altered…not her at all!!
