Jessica Simpson shows off her weight loss in a floral Carolina Herrera: stunning?

ZNV-002638

Here are some photos of Jessica Simpson at the 100th Annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner on Saturday. Jessica wore Carolina Herrera and she continued to show off her noticeable weight loss. She really has done well after the second pregnancy, hasn’t she? I’m no longer making jokes about the Weight Watchers contract being a price on her head. She looks like she’s gotten down to a size that she’s hasn’t been in a good six years or more.

As for the dress… I like it. It looks tight at the bust, but she’s not spilling out of it, which is good. Apparently, Jessica was complaining about people walking on her train. But the real story was that Jessica’s ex-boyfriend Tony Romo also came to the dinner:

Jessica Simpson may not have figured in the ex-factor when planning her weekend trip to our nation’s capitol for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The singer, 33, attended the star-studded event in Washington, D.C., which brought out Hollywood’s finest, political heavyweights, and even famous athletes, including her ex-boyfriend Tony Romo.

The Cowboys’ quarterback, 34, was a part of the soirée on Saturday, May 3, with his wife of nearly three years, Candice Crawford, whom he married on May 28, 2011. They welcomed their first child, Hawkins, 2, in April 2012, and their second child, Rivers, in March. He and Simpson did not stage a reunion at the event, sources tell Us Weekly.

The former lovers, who started dating in 2007 and split for good in July 2009, did not interact during the evening, an insider tells Us. While they did not actively avoid one another, they were both able to mingle in the crowd of 2,600 without running into each other.

“[Romo] and his wife were seated on the right side of the ballroom and Jessica was in the middle of the ballroom during the actual dinner,” the source adds, making it easy for them to go without speaking. A source close to the football player also added to Us that “no run-ins with Jessica happened.”

After the sit-down dinner, which also played host to a bevy of big-name stars including Sofia Vergara, Lupita Nyong’o, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Simpson attended the Vanity Fair after-party with her fiancé Eric Johnson.

Simpson stunned at the dinner in a black-and-white Carolina Herrera gown with Neil Lane jewelry. For the party, she changed into a slinky strapless black dress with a major slit up the leg. Simpson became engaged to the retired NFL player, 34, in November 2010. She and Johnson are the parents to two children, Maxwell, 2, and Ace, 11 months, and are planning to wed in Los Angeles later this year.

That was mature. No, I’m not being facetious. I’m proud of Jessica for not drunkenly stumbling over to say something ill-advised to Romo. Jessica has famously bad-mouthed her exes in the past, but I’m really starting to get the feeling that Jessica HAS matured. She’s a mother of two, she’s with a guy she adores, she’s rich. Just let Romo be Romo. Personally, I think she “won” that round anyway.

PS… She needs to stop doing the raised shoulder pose to make her arms look thinner. It looks awkward as hell.

    She would look good in in a shorter hair style…maybe shoulder length and styled.

    Wish her well and she looks nice in the dress :)

    • Mel M says:

      Yes a haircut would look great IMO. I also think her eye makeup here makes her look like she has crazy eyes, or maybe it’s jut the photo. Other than that she looks great.

    • Josephine says:

      Or just her own hair. She looks like she stole the mane from My Pretty Pony. Her hair is always gross and straw-like.

      Interestingly, I think she looks to awkward and stuff in these pics. She’s finally at the weight she claims she wants to be, and you would think she would enjoy posing, but she doesn’t look at ease at all — probably because she shouldn’t even be there.

  2. Ashling says:

    Jessica looks great. Good for her!

  3. Sighs says:

    I love that dress.

    On another note, Hawkins Romo and Rivers Romo? Wow. Glad that’s not my name.

  4. MSMLNP says:

    He looks like a younger cleaner Dean McDermott.

    And she looks great!

  5. HH says:

    Was the dress sliding down? Or does it just sit that low on her chest are? It looks a little weird.

    Jessica looks good here, but I’ve never been able to like her since that music video she made for Dukes of Hazzard. It was the one where she was washing a car in a skimpy red bikini, lathered up, almost washing the car with her boobs. It was so gratuitous. Stills of that video could have easily been in Playboy. On top of that, she played up the ditzy blond role for a while. I just… I can’t do it.

  6. Missy says:

    She looks great but she needs a hair-do. Something shorter and with some style.

  7. kcarp says:

    She looks really good. But it looks like she is sucking it in and can’t wait to get that dress off and put on some elastic pants. I know the feeling.

  8. Leah says:

    What exes has she ever bad mouthed?

    She looks good.

  9. wonderwoman21 says:

    Mr. Jessica Simpson resembles Mr. Tori Spelling quite a bit.

  10. MonicaQ says:

    Romo’s back surgery was what, a few months ago? But Brandon Weedon is backing him up so it’s not like his job is at risk. He’s getting paid Peyton Money right now. Plus, not like they’re beating Philly for the Division.

    (Sorry, I totally jumped on sports part of this /cough)

  11. Sayrah says:

    She looks amazing. Good for her!

  12. flutters says:

    Didn’t Jessica have a run-in with Tony Romo and his wife at this same event a few years ago, leading to her drinking and then having some miserable maybe tryst with Jeremy Renner? This was right before she hooked up with her fiance I think. Progress. They’re both better off with other partners anyway.

    I can’t get past the lack of intelligence in Jessica’s eyes. I just can’t. I’m sure her body looks great though.

    For all the “harmlessly stupid” vibes Jessica Simpson gives off, she and her dadager are well known to been extremely difficult to work with during her short lived country experiment. Their expectations of instant A-list treatment did not go over well there and neither did Jessica’s lack of professionalism. A few months ago, Rascal Flatts, whom she toured with, was asked if she had a chance of being accepted back in country, and they kind of chuckled and said “You really only get one chance to make a first impression.”

    That being said, I felt for Jessica during the Romo ordeal – she wanted it to work out so badly but he was over it and treated her like crap for a long time before he finally had the stones to end it for good.

    Jessica needs to be allowed to grow up. Do people realize how many other women in show buisness that have had the same ditz factor to get there start in show buisness and still have the same ditz going on.

    I believe Jesica is the happiest she has ever been and in a solid relationship.For all the off comments said about Eric little is known and its not a bad thing. More and more men are stay at home men and that isnt a bad thing either.

    Jessica is not a dumb blonde in the least and for info on May the 15 she will be speaking at the Forbes women confernce in NYC.. She is scheduled as a speaker.. Its time to let Jessica move forward in her life as a mother and grown woman and buisness woman.

    Flutter there is a lot you dont know about the Romo relationship and may I suggest your off base on much of it..

    As for Country you are very wrong again unless your in a certain click. Jessica is loved by many in the country division and still very close with Dolly and with Willie. Country is known for being the clickiest of the buisness.She is far from difficult to work with and that is common knowledge in all the business. The comments from even the weekend from other attendees were some of the best on her genuiness and kindness and warmth. You realy need to have a look.

    • Artemis says:

      Jessica needs to be allowed to grow up.

      Who’s stopping her?

      Not us when she talks about farting in meetings. Not us when she brags about eating junk and then sells this ‘healthy’ image when money is waved at her. Not us when she’s buying her jobless man push presents. Not us when she talks about her sex life in public.

      For all the off comments said about Eric little is known and its not a bad thing. More and more men are stay at home men and that isnt a bad thing either.

      What we do know is that he dropped out of his MBA at the Wharton School of Business when he started dating her and has no plans to ever work again. By all accounts, he’s intelligent and can be fairly successful if he would bother but he doesn’t. What else is there to say about a man who is not doing anything noteworthy? He’s not different than K-fed and Tori Spelling’s hanger on. No career ambitions anymore, they let themselves go and exist to emotionally support a needy insecure woman.

    • Bridget says:

      She’s the one selling the ditz image. Have you watched an interview with her? If she wants to change the conversation then she better change what she’s saying.

  14. WTF says:

    Is it just me, or does she look like she sucking in so hard her head might pop off?
    I think she looks fine. Hell, I thought she looked fine with the extra weight. What I don’t care for is the pretense. WTF? It doesn’t matter if I look like a misshapen mannequin, as long as I look thin!

  15. Anon says:

    I do not recall one instance of Jessica ever bad mouthing anyone let alone an EX. Not believable.Its not her nature but there have been EX’s of hers that have not been as kind and were not talking about JM. There are still a couple of them that need to use her and her name for there still relavancy.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      The only thing she ever did that can even be remotely called ‘bad mouthiing’ was when she ran into Nick and Vanessa at a restaurant and she said something to the affect of “hope they enjoy their meal seeing I’m paying for it” which was a slam on Nick for going after spousal support. Frankly, I don’t blame her. I’d be pissed too.

      • P.J. says:

        “…which was a slam on Nick for going after spousal support. Frankly, I don’t blame her. I’d be pissed too.”

        Actually @Jenniferjustice, one of the most noteworthy things about the Simpson/Lachey divorce is how hard Papa Joe IMMEDIATELY tried to c**k block Nick from getting even a single.penny. of the nearly hundreds of millions of dollars that Jessica had started to make during the course of their marriage with her Dessert Beauty and Jessica Simpson clothing lines as well as the fact that that Nick quite openly never took or asked for a single penny, not even the (relatively) laughable $1.5 million that they tried to give him to walk away quietly. If you consider that they lived in CA which is one of the most rigid of all “community earnings/property” states and he was rightfully-by law-entitled to half, this speaks volumes towards his character.

        Dude just wanted away from that crazy family and I don’t blame him!

      • Nina W says:

        As her success was largely due to their show together, he deserved whatever he got and she’s got nothing to cry about. She would have been forgotten a long time ago without him and her stupid chicken of the sea comment.

  16. get over it says:

    Why is she there????

  17. mar says:

    WHY DOES SHE LOOK SO UNCOMFORTABLE?

  18. Melanie says:

    Not a fan at all (she loves to sound stupid), but I have to admit that she does look amazing!

  19. Damaris says:

    I don’t see Jessica as dumb, to be quite honest. I think she’s just a happy-go-lucky girl. She’s not Katy Perry dumb. I feel like it’s more dangerous to be as stupid and naïve as Katy Perry than Jessica.

    Good God, Katy Perry’s head is full of rocks.

    “She needs to stop doing the raised shoulder pose to make her arms look thinner. It looks awkward as hell.”

    THANK YOU. I was checking out the White House Correspondence Dinner posts here and on other sites and there was something very strange looking about Jessica in all the photos that I couldn’t quite put my finger on besides the dress hanging way too low on her chest and the fact that it’s becoming brutally apparent that girlfriend reallllly needs to stop messing with her face :/ (To the few non-believers: Just Google “Jessica Simpson plastic surgery”-the side by side before and after pictures are alarming. That said, she’s a perfect example of good, subtle work-besides her really obvious blepharoplasty-done over time to throw people off the scent.)

    As a super fun/funny little aside, I’ve started to recently watch ‘Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica” again on dvd and my God was that show a trip! (Remember when they were EVERYWHERE??) I was in college when it first started to air and everything in it seems so laughably dated now: Juicy Couture velour sweatsuits! A trip to Singular Wireless! Pussy Cat Doll dancers! Trucker hats! And most importantly: Nick Lachey complaining about being too famous! LOL. Bet he wishes he has some semblance of that “problem” these days…

    No way Romos wife just had a baby in March!!! Impossible!!!

  22. Lizzy1013 says:

    Ok I had to google.. She had their son march 19th!!! Wow sign me up for her plan when I have kids.

  23. janet says:

    It is not impossible to have a baby and look good. I never wore maternity clothes and walked out of the hospital in my jeans. Jessica does look great.

  24. Giselle says:

    Just came to say I forgot they even dated and when they did I was all, “She’s dating Tony Roma? I didn’t know that was a real person; hope she gets discounts.” That is all.

  25. lucy2 says:

    I love that dress! She looks good, but I have to say that either the fit is off or something, because it looks a little awkward on her.

  26. Nina W says:

    Maybe it’s just me but I hate the strapless gown. Her girls don’t have proper support and are sitting on her waist. Reminds me of a million horrible wedding dresses. Not everyone can wear a strapless gown but if you do, for the love of all things holy, please make sure you have the structural support required. Her boob situation ruins this dress. Otherwise her figure looks fantastic and she is obviously beautiful and seems charming but no thank you on the unflattering strapless gown.

  27. Bridget says:

    Oh honey. Shoulders down and back.

  28. snowflake says:

    i absolutely love that dress!

  29. NANALU says:

    JESSICA SIMPSON LOOKS SO AWKWARD POSING ON THE RED CARPET, LOOK AT HER FACE LOOKS LIKE SHE’S ON SOMETHING! WEIRD!!!

  30. I have a million things to do today, but I can not really be bothered, not long since I got to bed Having her beautiful children laying on! Fearing return to normal routine and I think they are a.

    Last night was a bit of a disaster had just opened the box of cookies foxes, so I’m regretting now. I really do not want to fall back into old habits so I will deduct a of my weekly.
