Jessica Simpson is likely finding her name Googled a lot right now. The 39-year-old actress, singer, and “Open Book” author fronted media outlets this week for clapping back at Vogue “body-shaming” her – the words used by Jessica to voice her “nauseating” reaction to having her 2007 Met Gala look described as breasts that “fell out of her dress” made global headlines.
Still a talking point for the 100 pounds she dropped in just six months after welcoming baby Birdie in 2019, Jessica and her whittled-down frame have appeared in a new set of photos.
Keep scrolling for the images recently shared to the Jessica Simpson Style brand’s Instagram – the collection earning $750 million back in 2010 makes it one of the most successful celebrity apparel lines of all time.
The snaps came as a celebration of daughter Maxwell’s eighth birthday – the “Dukes of Hazzard” star welcomed Maxi in 2012, with the eye-catching photos showing mom and daughter chasing bubbles amid sun-drenched grass. Jessica’s ultra-tan and toned legs were on show via a blue-and-white spot playsuit with a shorts finish and cinched belt. Bombshell blonde hair and the star being barefoot completed the look. Keep scrolling for Jessica before she lost the 100 pounds.
A caption from the brand read:
“Happy Birthday, Maxi girl!! ✨??? Celebrate with us all day and take 20% OFF your purchases on jessicasimpson.com! #MAXIDREW”
Engagement on the Jessica Simpson Style’s Instagram is lower than on Jessica’s own – while the star has 5.3 million followers, her label’s fanbase sits at a more modest 303,000. Nonetheless, replies did come in, with Jessica being told: “God bless you” – many others wished the star’s daughter all the best.
Headline-making for Jessica has turned very sour this week, though. Scroll for her “body-shaming” storm, plus how she lost her 100 pounds.
Jessica is fresh from calling out Vogue magazine after a former staffer for the magazine recalled the actress’ 2007 appearance at the Met Gala, also mentioning ex John Mayer.
“She was wearing Michael Kors and her breasts maybe fell out of her dress on the red carpet.”
“And then at dinner it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I’m looking at them. And John Mayer was putting his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached down and I just remember thinking, ‘Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here.’ That’s what’s going on.”
Jessica walked up to 10,000 steps a day during the six-month period that saw her shed 100 pounds – Jessica tipped the scales at 240 pounds at her heaviest. Trainer Harley Pasternak told Hollywood Life:
“She would eat one whole egg and three egg whites for breakfast, scrambled with a bowl of blackberries. For lunch she would have a salad with grilled chicken and grilled fish with salad and vegetables for dinner. As for snacks, she would have almonds and sometimes green beans with Parmesan cheese on top. She was very disciplined.”
