Back of Jessica Simpson's a Lucky Cover Girl Who Says Beautiful Isn't Always Barbie Jessica Simpson strikes a confident pose for the September issue of Lucky Magazine. Jess is riding high on her new romance with Eric Johnson amid rumors that she could join the American Idol judging panel, but kept the focus on style during her chat with the magazine. Jess said that her experience traveling the globe for The Price of Beauty helped her learn to love her figure. She said, "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." Taping the series didn't only have an impact on Jess' inner beauty – she also borrowed some clothing cues from Africa during her time there. "Morocco was a huge influence on me when it comes to jewelry and fashion. You can't help but want to buy caftans when you're there!"

Kitty-Collins 7 years i love after she's spent years pushing the ultimate barbie look, now after gaining some stubborn pounds she wants to push the accept yourself as you are crap. i bet if she managed to stay thin, she wouldn't give two shits about women accepting their bodies. jaan_black 7 years the only thing I learned from that silly show is: Jessica Simpson is as dumb and insecure as people think...she may know how to keep money flowing with the help and guidance of a small army behind her but on her own, she'd be wondering why the toaster oven doesn't keep her food cold Frida83 7 years Thank you Anonymous #11, you took the words right out of my mouth! Jessica is beautiful and definitely not 'fat' by any means. Magazines always do photoshop these days and I doubt Jessica had any say in that at all. ViciousVera 7 years Thank you Anonymous for your great words!! I too find it awful how random people spend their time judging and slamming celebrities and people they don't even know. I agree with Jessica and her commitment to get out to women in this harsh world that it's OK not to be a size 0 and a D cup. I too get slammed by judgmental people who say hurtful things in regards to my new body shape. Then when they find out I am 50 years old, their eyes change and they say 'wow! you look great!" I have a very young face but my body has changed so much over the years. 4 kids, a hip injury and the H word. But it still is very hurtful when some young thing with a tramp stamp and her fat little pouch belly starts on about me being fat (and she is maybe 5 lbs lighter than me). But until you are on this side of the weight spectrum, the idiots don't understand, and they judge. All I can say, is 'your time is coming!!' qteepie 7 years "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." Did she know she would be photoshopped to look like a barbie? Hockey-Princess 7 years This is just stupid. She talks about not looking like a Barbie and gets photoshopped into one. Jessica is so different from her real self in these "shots", it's ridiculous.
