How rare is this? That a celebrity would choose to go without makeup or have retouching done for a magazine photo shoot?? No matter what you may think about Jessica Simpson, that really is applaudable and very brave!!! She also had let her hair simply air dry. It's definitely all natural! This is so rare in today's world.
I think she looks very pretty none the less!
I know I wouldn't be brave enough to do what she did, would you??
"I don't have anything to prove anymore," she told the magazine. "What other people think of me is not my business."
I'm sure most of you have heard about her new show, "The Price of Beauty". She travels around the world to see what is considered beautiful in other cultures and places. It really is quite interesting. It's also quite surprising what other cultures consider beautiful. Definitely different from what we think of as beautiful. Not bad, just different.
Here's what Jessica Simpson's website had to say about the show:
In the new VH1 docu-series, Jessica travels to Thailand, France, India, Uganda, Japan, Brazil, Morocco, and then back home to Los Angeles to meet every day women and local icons. Throughout the series, Jessica examines the local fashions, dietary fads and beauty regimes and even participates in some extreme practices in order to reveal what constitutes beauty in these foreign cultures.
Simpson said "I was so moved by the eight cultures I explored for my new show. The women I met were so incredibly different in their customs and traditions but there was a common thread between them in their beauty. I was inspired to write the theme song for the show to reflect what I observed- that there is a unique beauty that lies within each of us, flaws and all. Our hearts, our souls, our passions are what make us each beautiful."
I also read about her father Joe Simpson traveling with Jessica to Uganda and saying this about the experience:
Joe explained, "In Uganda, fat is beautiful. So the bigger you are, the more beautiful you are. [Jessica] was with a girl who had been in a hut preparing for her wedding for two months and 25 days on a 5,000 calorie-a-day diet."
Can you imagine??? What other unusual ideas of beauty have you heard about? Have you been watching her show? And what do you think about this cover shoot for Marie Claire?? I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!!
