Jessica Simpson better get used to turning heads with her fit new physique. After hitting her goal weight last month, the star continues to work on her slim-down, stepping out in bright dresses that really showcase the result of all her hard work.

Most recently, she hit the red carpet in a slim-fitting yellow dress at the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit in L.A. that got people buzzing, so we asked: What’s the key to the Weight Watchers spokeswoman’s continued success? As it turns out, diet and exercise (imagine that!); she’s still sticking to her points and remaining active at the same time, says a source close to Simpson.

That means working out with trainer Harley Pasternak for 45 minutes three days a week, focusing on “everything. She needs to look good all over,” the source says. When she can’t meet with Pasternak, “She goes for walks with her kids and her [fiancé] because she likes to keep moving when she’s not with him. She’s very adamant about making sure she’s active when he’s not around so she tries to get in 10,000 steps a day.”

Also a major component in Simpson’s ability to stay fit? Finding exercise that’s fun for her. “She likes walking in her neighborhood and people often see her doing that,” the source says. “She really enjoys the workouts. [Because] she loves it, she’s consistent. It’s the one constant in her life that she’s always done no matter whats happening.”

And — as Simpson’s svelte physique demonstrates — all that work is paying off. “There were pictures of her in Daisy Dukes the other day!” the source says. “She looks phenomenal.”

What do you think Simpson’s new slimmed-down style? Are you impressed by her results?

by working out with a trainer having a chef and not tending to her kids while they are being handled by the nannies

She looks great! I wonder how well this “source” knows her though since he/she mentioned that Jessica likes to go walking with her husband. Did I miss something — did they get married?

Totally photo-shopped. Note the completely straight line down her left side vs. the bulges on her right side. Personally, I don’t care how much she weighs, but she shouldn’t fake it with photo-shopping and say she’s showing off how skinny she is at the same time.

Vicki on

When did she get married to what’s his name?

@Gwen. It’s not photoshop, it’s a 3/4 pose. With the other hip behind her she doesn’t look as wide. Either way, she’s in phenomenal shape. Time to get those tubes tied before she ruins it all again.

Karen on

OK give me a spokesperson who has a full time job, kids (without a nanny!) and someone who has to go to the grocery store themselves and make/cook their own food in between their job, laundry, mommy duty and housework. Now that would TRULY be inspirational !

No one said she had a chef it says she watches her Weight Watchers points and it also says she goes on the walks WITH her children. People who want to criticize others, especially moms, who lose weight are generally bitter about their own shape but won’t take the time to fix it.

Madison on

She looks great…but then again, she’s always beautiful heavy or thin.

Cate on

Having a $4 million obligation (contract) to do so and a wedding coming up both help, I’m sure. I’ll only be impressed if she keeps it off permanently.

Amy on

Karen – People do that all the time. I’m confused why so many people think it’s impossible to be healthy. It has nothing to with chefs or personal trainers. If YOU aren’t willing to be committed to it, it isn’t going to happen.
