Earlier this week, Jessica Simpson surprised everyone with her curvaceous shape at the country festival Chili Cook-Off in Pembroke Pines, Florida on January 25. It’s hard not to look at this picture without feeling a little shocked, but I think the main problem here is the ‘fit, not Jessica’s overly criticized weight gain. Jessica’s retro high waist jeans (try more flattering cuts like Aristocrat’s Stratford Pant in Haven or Desert Blue’s Wide Leg Trouser in Vintage Demo) and simple tucked in black tank (check out Qi’s comfy Mesh Yoke Ribbed Tank in Black) would have been fine, if the fit wasn’t so skin tight. But at least her tush still looks good! Personally, I think it’s the belt that truly ruins this ‘fit. It’s never good to draw attention your mid-section, and the loud print and the thick shape cuts her body in half and makes her look stuffed into those ill-fitting jeans. If you like the look of wide belts, try a more flattering shade with intricate details like Linea Pelle’s Double Buckle with Contract Stitch Waist Belt in Dark Olive. Leave the leopard print for accessories that don’t emphasize potential problem areas – like Julie K’s Natalie Sleek Clutch in Leopard. Jessica always wears her share of accessories, and she added some gold bangles and a pair of circular gold earrings (try Kimberly Faith’s Half Moon on Chain Earrings in Gold). After these photos hit the web, the wave of name calling and criticism about Jessica’s weight gain was astonishing. Luckily, all of the negative talk has plenty of celebrities fired up about the vicious attacks. Jessica’s weight was even mentioned on “The Today Show,” where People magazine editor Galina Espinoza spoke out: “Jessica Simpson is becoming part of this trend we call body-bullying… People are cruelly mocking her, making her feel like there is something wrong with her just because she has a slightly fuller figure. It’s something that’s going on increasingly in Hollywood.” Do you think Jessica looks healthier with her more voluptuous figure, or does she need to shed a few pounds?

I'm sorry, she is a bit chunky but she still looks cute!!!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:21 AM

She has Double D breasts people, she's not meant to be a toothpick supporting some cannons!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:53 AM

she is a little bit fuller, BUT, it doesnt really matter, she's a pretty girl.guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 07:08 AM

Oh yeah, she's a whale alright ... grow up people. Women and men come in all shapes and sizes and this pressure to become a homogeneous body unit is ridiculous. Celebrate the differences and enjoy your body; after all, you only get one!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 07:16 AM

It's true. We all gain and lose weight. I'm sure noone would like to read about it though! I think if she's happy it doesn't matter.guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 10:44 AM

She looks perfectly healthy. I have some relatives with body types like that. It is so nice to give them a hug and they are soft and comforting.guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 01:10 PM

She looks good!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 04:34 PM

maybe, WHEN YOU'RE DRUNK!!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:37 PM

gross! fat! so gross and fat and needs to lose like 70 lbs or more .... adult diabetes is a serious risk.. i bet its just a bunch of fat ugly chicks sticking up for her .. anyways more people hate on skinny celebs than fat andguest on Feb 05 2009 @ 06:43 PM

The outfit is horribly unflattering. And she's not fat, but she did seem to gain a noticeable bit of weight in a short amount of time. If she was consistently like this, I don't think people would have made such a big deal.guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 07:13 PM

6:43 you are a warped individual!!! get a life!guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 08:12 PM

She'll always be pretty but she is getting a little fat.
I know everyone says she's normal but "normal" aka fat, doesn't mean healthy!
guest on Feb 05 2009 @ 09:39 PM

She's beautiful. She is absolutely not fat. People need to back off, and get a life.guest on Feb 08 2009 @ 10:24 PM

10:24 must be fatguest on Feb 09 2009 @ 08:24 AM

No, actually, 10:24 is not fat. 8:24 is an idiot.guest on Feb 09 2009 @ 11:12 AM

okay this is hilarious.. 11:12 quite an argument your making and im guessing your also about the age of 14 and i bet you are both 10:24 and 11:12 checking back...? just admit it jessica looks like a fat unhealthy slob and needs to lose anywhere from 40-70 lbs you cant deny it unless of course you yourself weigh like 200 lbs i completely agree with the "idiot" 8:24" hahaguest on Feb 09 2009 @ 01:32 PM

You are all missing the point... who are WE to judge? Do you have a perfect body? If you did I don't think you'd be hiding behind your vicious blog commentsguest on Feb 10 2009 @ 10:42 AM

well i think its offensive when everyone goes around thinking its okay to rip on mk olsen when shes skinny just cause its more attractive but when everyone calls jessica simpson on being a fat unhealthy hick slob its so offensive and mean ..and i mean come on like she cant even sing as a celebrity the least she can do is stay in shape and at least under 150 lbsguest on Feb 10 2009 @ 08:16 PM

So she's put on a few pounds big deal. She is still a good looking woman and I'm sure she will get rid of the extra pounds when she wants. Everyone's weight fluctuates from time to time. Get over it.guest on Feb 15 2009 @ 08:26 AM

grosss fat and unhealthy shes hideousguest on Feb 16 2009 @ 10:00 AM

guest on Feb 18 2009 @ 05:34 AM

Next time you call somebody fat or ugly, please look at yourself in the mirror. Take a good look. Umm yeah, done looking? I am sure you're ugly.guest on Feb 26 2009 @ 02:29 PM
