If we didn’t tell you these photos were from the past week, you might think you had gotten in to a time machine that had traveled back to 2008. And who could blame you? The huge sunglasses, long blonde hair, thigh-high boots and oversized handbags are all Jessica Simpson staples from her pre-baby days.

But in fact, you’re looking at very recent photos of the star, who has not only returned to her favorite skinny jeans, she’s also returned to her favorite pre-baby look. We marveled at these photos of the star wearing ponchos, leather pants, fuzzy jackets over plunging tees, wide-legged trousers and patterned leggings, all accompanied by a very expensive, very large handbag.

PHOTOS: Would you wear these denim trends? Vote now!

We totally relate to Simpson’s excitement to return to a look that she loved before spending the past few years in maternity clothes. We also think this is a look that really works for her — it’s sort of a “glam jet-setting power lady” vibe that goes well with her bombshell demeanor. But we also think it would be fun for her to mix it up a bit, by adding in a few more modern pieces, like fitted jeans, a varsity jacket or Wayfarer-type shades. Even a haircut with a bit more movement would be an interesting development.

What do you think of Simpson’s style? Is it a little too retro for you, or “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?”

does she own anything in a color other than black?

amyinoaktown on

She looks great, but needs a little more color in her wardrobe!


New spank bank pics!!!

Nanu 08 on

No doubt she has her own style but not very flattering and for sure needs to cut that hair…….oggly!!!!!!

KC on

Looking Good Girl!

Dillweed818 on

She looks wonderful!

Denise on

Remind me again, why is she famous?

Amp88 on

A little more color in her wardrobe, and a little shorter with the hair length and everything will be perfect. :)

Tamara on

She looks great especially after having 2 babies so close together. I love her style but she needs to lay off of the lip plumper. Her lips in some pictures look ridiculous.

Jessica looks great and kept with her commitment to lose weight. When she gained weight, the naysayers were all over her with insults galore. Now, that she looks wonderful, they are now on her for her clothing choices? So, she likes to wear black! LOL! Shaking my head!

Tina on

How many times are you going to tell us this People?

An opinon on

DENISE, she is famous because she has created a billion dollar fashion empire.

Jennifer on

I do not care for her style at all. Enough with the oversized accessories, dark colors, and clunky shoes. She should stick to clean simple lines for a classic look and incorporate more color.

Wear black outfits make her look thin.

annie on

black makes u look slim…duh!!

Kristine on

I always want to know, what are women carrying around in those huge handbags? Two of those look like my carry on luggage – something I’d pack for a weekend. I doubt she’s carrying her own luggage. And it seems pretty expensive to use as a diaper bag, stuffing it with Cheerios and sippy cups.

heather on

i guess if People keeps running the same story over & over, everyone will start to believe it.

Teknosbeka on

Not a fan of the ponchos but otherwise I think she looks great and she has gorgeous hair it would be a shame to cut it.

Susan on

I always wonder who buys her clothes? I’ll have to skulk down to the seedy parts of town, I bet I’ll find a load of hookers wearing them there!

Amaryllis on

Very pretty girl, but she has absolutely no taste in clothes.

Ivy on

I see nothing interesting in her style.There is no surprise and no imagination.

blair on

She is just gorgeous!

thefilthelement on

Yeah a poncho and baggy clothes sure show off a fit body… not

Dylan Farrow Allen on

She’s still too fat.

anon on

Teknosbeka…OMG cutting her hair would be a blessing…it’s all fake and looks it. She is very pretty and looks better without all that IMO.

Cate on

Yeah, a $4 million contract is a pretty good incentive to lose the weight. I’m more inspired by the success stories of “normal” people.

junebug on

People saying negative things are simply jealous! She is stunning! Why is she famous….ever hear her sing…that could have something to do with it….or that she is a fashion powerhouse…..

Giuliana on

I love her style, just hate her choice in platform shoes…..

angie on

She does not have her pre-baby body back at all. She’s lost weight since giving birth twice in a short period of time and looks good. That’s it. She was very thin before and she’s not very thin now. She’s a pretty girl but she does need a hair cut.

christa on

She is looking great.

Karen on

She still looks fat to me covering with black wear bathing suit than will know her in classy self

Leila on

Those pictures are all from the past week? She looks visably heavier on one picture and too thin in another. The other two pics, she looks pretty good.

Karen on

She so unclasssy she looks fat not skinny expensive make u look slim and black helps nope still eating those fries.

Julesy on

I don’t care for her style. Those hooker boots have got to go! Ugh.

dustin on

alexis on

Shonda on

I love her look. She has always been so pretty. I would love to see her do music again. She has such an amazing voice:)

Akbar Javid on


Tammy on

Thank goodness she has her pre-baby body back because looks are all she has going for her now.

Lyn Howell on

Just cause she has a fashion empire does not make her a fashionista. Her style means >>>”trying to hard” ….her choices of handbags, pants, shoes and hairstyle are so not classy and look cheap. Like she shops at thrift shops.

She wears these skin tight leather pants that don’t compliment her still heavy thighs. Her oversized bags look too big for her and the style again cheap. She needs to hire a celebrity stylist who can put together a better ensemble. Probably she’s cheap. Just saying….Oh and the all black thingy….what are you trying to copy Angelina? Too much going on in her outfit. And please trim that bleached blond locks of yours. Looks tired and dreary.

anna on

she looks great, people! stop, just stop being bullies and take a good look at yourselves and answer this question: are you perfect? guess not!

Marie on

I love her style, love her look. She looks great!

kitty62862 on

She looks great, and she trimmed down in a sane timeframe.
