Lindsay just landed a deal with Miu Miu as the face of their spring 2007 ad campaign. It turns out Jessica made the short list of starlets for Miu Miu, but she was pulled because of her loyalty to Ken Paves. Page Six reports:
Insiders say Simpson was on a short list of celebs Miu Miu had in mind for its next ad campaign being shot by famed fotogs Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. But when the snappers learned Simpson was on the list, they nixed her. "They felt snubbed by Jessica because they were set to do her Vanity Fair shoot several months ago," says an insider. "Being the professionals they are, they wanted to bring in their own hair and makeup team, but Jessica said if they didn't use Ken, then she wasn't sitting for the shoot." The shoot and cover story for Vanity Fair were canceled amid false rumors that editors spiked them because Simpson refused to dish on her failed marriage to Nick Lachey. Our source insists it was the hair issues that ruined the spread: "Most fashion photographers use their own people - and they certainly don't use Ken Paves, who is considered tacky and amateurish for high-fashion shoots. He's very 'Texas pageant hair.' " A rep for Simpson said, "She could not have done the campaign anyway because she has her own clothing and shoe line."
I love the part about him being "very 'Texas pageant hair.'" Maybe this is why Jessica prefers her "mane man."
