Jessica Simpson Shows Slim Figure, Down 50 PoundsBy: Rachel Kolman - May 4, 2014
Jessica Simpson showed off a toned, sleek figure at the White House Correspondents’ dinner last night in Washington D.C. With her fiancé Eric Johnson on her arm, Jessica, 33, wowed as she breezed by in a strapless floor-length, flower-patterned dress. Jessica is famously known as the face of Weight Watchers, a program she dedicated herself to after the birth of her two-year-old daughter, Maxwell.
About her working transformation, Jessica says, “I love this body and what it’s capable of, no matter what size, but this version feels really good. My body, like my life, is a work in progress, but I’m getting there, with Weight Watchers.” Jessica recently celebrated a milestone of 50 pounds of weight loss after the birth of her son, Ace, and has been seen around Los Angeles and D.C. flaunting her new figure.
After the White House dinner, Jessica changed into a sleek black dress with a deep neckline for the Vanity Fair cocktail reception. Looks like Jess is proud of her new body, and simply wants to celebrate it!
Jessica’s secret to success? Her two kids, Maxwell and Ace. Playing with her family, going on walks, and gardening have kept her active and healthy. “I really do feel this need to be the best role model for my children,” Jessica said back in January. Jessica also admitted she wanted to slim down for her upcoming wedding to fiancé and former NFL player Eric Johnson. The date hasn’t been finalized, but Jess said they’re looking to tie the knot sometime this year. “We need to get married,” Jessica says. “I already feel like we’re like an old married couple. If he wanted to run, he could have run when I was hormonal and pregnant.” Looks like she has a keeper!
And lastly – could Jessica’s slimed-down figure mean she’s ready for a comeback? Hollywood Reporter revealed last month that Jessica has signed back on with UTA for representation, a signal that she’s ready to come back as a singer and actress. Jessica decidedly took the last three years off to build her family with Eric; however, her designer line ‘The Jessica Simpson Collection’ still brings in $750 million annually. Jessica’s line, which launched in 2005, includes clothing, shoes, jewelry, and household items, and still going strong. Even with all the accomplishments, we still can’t wait to see a Jessica Simpson comeback!
