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!

I dont care what size she is…the thing that bothers me is she preaches be comfortable with yourself and then photoshops her pics. and not even subtle photoshop!! the pictures of her lately show her thicker…which isnt bad just own up!!! plus she said in one interveiw that she doesnt know why everyone keeps saying she is heavy shes never been over a size 4…yeah right!i dont think they should hound her over it but at least be honest when you discuss it.

she looks uncomfortable b/c she has her shoulders shrugged and her head tiltled to the front (due to her thumbs in her pockets!) i am a BIG GURL, 5’1 and 150 llbs. and i’m glad that someone is trying to take on the “skinny” 5’5-120 lbs girls. if she can be BIG and on TV that gives me hope that with the right clothes and fit i can also look pretty. GEEEEZUS!

This has got to be the 20-millioneth article I’ve read on how “Jessica Simpson is comfortable with her body” or “JS is done trying to please everyone with her weight” or “JS is happy to be ‘curvy'” WE GET IT OKAY???? We don’t believe it, but we get it!

I think she’s beautiful regardless…and if she truly is going to embrace her curves, good for her! However that first photo must have been retouched – she looks like a bobblehead!

There is and never was something wrong with her curvy shape, she looks great, I think she looked way to thing in Dukes of Hazzard. Her sister is way to thin right now her head it way to big for her body and show that is a sign she is way to thin, Jessica looks hotter there is nothing wrong with her shape SHE IS NOT FAT

god is anyone interested in her when all she is doing is boofing someone? AND THE TWIITER. sorry there’s no notes in her voice-out of tune/tone deaf.

i don’t care if she is fat or thin. I DO care, however that she is running around with a STILL MARRIED man. i have lost what little respect i still had for her.

Oh my…I’m not saying she is overweight, but there is NO way her waist is as small as the upper picture! Can you say…photoshop?! It’s so sad that in the article she’s saying she’s embracing her curvy hourglass figure, then they photshop off half of her waist in the picture. So sad…

Yep, PHOTOSHOPPED! The magazines have all gotten caught doing it for their cover models. jSimp is no exception. If you see recent photos of her, she is bigger. She looks great, but this isn’t her real body.

OH MY!Photo shop all the wayyyyyyyy…..and “SHE’S DONE TRYIN’ TO LOOK THE PERFECT BARBIE TYPE” LMAO!!!
