Jessica Simpson shows off her epic weight loss at LA charity event: amazing?


Here are some photos from yesterday’s John Varvatos 11th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood. Jessica Simpson is tight with Varvatos – they do Fashion Star together. I don’t have a designer ID on the dress, but that’s not the point! The point is LOOK AT HER. Wow, she’s lost so much weight in the past year. Now I feel kind of bad that I made so many jokes about that Weight Watchers contract hanging over her head and how she would probably get knocked up again to get out of it. Jessica put in the work, big time. I know it’s kind of gross, but I’m including a photo of Jessica from behind too – every part of her is skinny now.

By the way, I haven’t covered anything to do with Jessica in a while, even though she’s been tweeting and Instagramming photos like crazy. I’ve been hearing stories about her wedding plans too, but I got the feeling that people don’t care that much. Do you? Honk if you care.


More photos from the event… Morena Baccarin, looking really beautiful. I can’t say I missed her that much last season of Homeland, but I look forward to seeing more of her in the future. I’m also including pics of Amy Adams and her man, Courtney Love (with John Varvatos), Tyler Hoechlin (why is he everywhere these days?), Joe Manganiello (he actually looks nice here – scarfy, but nice) and LL Cool J (so cute).

    • QQ says:

      I think I love you for this #noHonk clarification

    • Bijou says:

      I agree ‘Sexual Napalm,’ is looking AMAAAAAZING!! I love that nickname for her, even though Mayer is a douche…what was his nickname for Aniston again? Oh yeah, ‘kitchen dog petter.’

    • fat citizen says:

  2. Shelby says:

    She looks great

    • ParisPucker says:

      yes! I wonder if it was all WW

      • JH says:

        I really feel like it’s too amazing to be just WW.

      • doofus says:

        well, based on those calves of hers (as seen from behind), I’d say she’s doing some cardio too. (running? biking?)

        in any case, she does look fab.

      • Sea Dragon says:

        My guess is that she added a ..ahem..few colonics sessions and a little lipo to the mix to look so thin again.

        Also, I think she’s had those incredibly strong legs, even at her heaviest.

      • Gia says:

        No weight loss that fast is done the right way. Pills. Plenty of pills.

      • FLORC says:

        This is not simply WW. Jessica has access to lots of resources the average WW customer doesn’t.
        Jessica has bad eating habits and lots of money to take shortcuts. She’s admitted such. She’s going to be an awful spokesperson. I’m betting she will gain loads of weight and cause another WWs meltdown. Overall, this makes me like Jessica less.

        And this is no honk. It’s whatever the opposite of a honk is. Although, I will honk until my horn dies for women who do lose weight through a lifestyle change without millions of dollarss as incentive.

      • Belle says:

        I think she must be exercising quite a bit, in addition to the WW. Wouldn’t necessarily rule out lipo… But for those that think the weight loss was ‘fast’, it seems like it’s been pretty gradual to me. Granted, I haven’t been paying much attention, but has it really been that fast?

      • FLORC says:

        Yes and No.
        Once someone lit a fire under her she stopped eating friend food and cut back heavily on her liquor. Seems with Jess her biggest vice was her beloved Margaritas with sat and single malt scotch. That can really help you bloat and pack on the pounds. Also lowers inhibitions so you binge eat.

        Initially she was said to not being putting in a real effort with her trainers and not sticking to her diet plans.
        Didn’t she broker a new deal and suddenly the weight fell off?
        Also, with how much weight she gained and what her goal weight actually was was fast. Lots of whispers she was seen going in and out of places known to give cleanses and a possible consultation for a gastro procedure several months back.

      • Lilo says:

        Not sure if WW alone would change someone’s weight like that in such short a time… but If you look at her calves, she really hit the gym, too. So it’s possible. Or isn’t it? Please tell me it is, there’s still hope for me :D

      • Just Me says:

        Weight watchers works if you follow it like you’re supposed to. I used it after the birth of both children as I tend to gain a lot during pregnancy. I went from a 14 to a 4-6 & was tight as hell in a few months by following the diet to a T and working out ALOT. Like a lot. Strapped my kids in a jogging stroller and just went. It can totally be done, if I can do it, without nannies or help, or drugs. It’s not impossible. I think Jessica’s calves show that she’s been working out a lot. I really don’t think it’s fair to say she’s pill popping and having lipo. Sure, she could have, but it’s a disservice to women everywhere who burst their butts to get into shape after having kids. Jesus. I feel like the poor girl can’t win.

  3. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Wow, Jessica looks amazing! Morena looks beautiful as well. Love her purple dress!

  4. Seszie says:

    How much did she lose? Any one know befor & after stats?
    She looks very nice & healthy now.

  5. Pandora says:

    Her legs look amazing…’s hard when you’re that petite, 5 pounds is more like ten, with two small children to run round after she looks fantastic.

    • Caz says:

      I’m Jess’s height and can vouch that any extra weight looks extra when you’re not tall and not naturally fine-boned/petite. Also guessing she would have had to do a MASSIVE amount of cardio to lose all the weight. And be super-aware of everything she eats. Or resort to other measures.

  6. raindrop says:

    I dig Jessica’s muscles – she’s not just thin, she looks strong. But I like her kind of round; it softens her and she looks happier. I remember reading an interview where she said being really thin made her miserable. However, it looks like she’s weight training instead of (just) starving herself this time.

  7. blue marie says:

    Ahh, LL Cool J, I will forever love that dude.
    Amy Adams looks cute.
    Good for Jessica, and no I don’t care about her wedding.

  8. bella says:

    jessica certainly has regained here mojo.
    good for her – she’s a beautiful girl.
    morena…ugh…i just can’t with her.
    i only know her from her homeland role where i found her performance to be painful and embarassing to the point where i’d have to change the channel!
    i will say that she looks lovely in this pic, though.

  9. Dani says:

    She looks healthy and strong, not just thin. Look at those legs! Hot mama. Such a slap in the face to everyone who called her fat and lazy.

    • Artemis says:

      Yup, now she’s only lazy…Or is getting paid to work out once a day when you have nothing else to do a great work ethic all of sudden? Didn’t get that memo…

      • MB says:

        What a nasty person you are.
        Thank goodness I am not famous. You cant win. If you are overweight you are critised. If you lose the weight you are critised for HOW people imagine you lost it, even though they are purely speculating through an ultra critical lense.

        How vile.

      • Artemis says:

        There’s nothing to imagine when JS sold her stories over and over again. We all saw and heard her journey of slutty brownies and other unhealthy food but as soon as WWs dangled money in front of her, she wanted to be ‘healthy’ all of a sudden. And I’m a nasty person for not buying what she’s selling? Ok then, I can live with that :)

        She’s always been lazy, she hasn’t had a career that requires hard work, she can only talk about her body, babies and her man. That’s it. Who the hell cares if she’s ‘fat’ or ‘skinny’, she’s a beautiful dumb lazy woman which is why people excuse her OTT, oversharing and greedy lifestyle, that’s my gripe with her and her fans. Nasty > gullible, any day!

    • Bridget says:

      I would be way, way, way more impressed if she had to do it without her nannies, a cook, a trainer, all the WW support, and of course while holding down a regular job. Normal women get back into shape after having a baby ALL THE TIME and aren’t paid for it. This was her job. I don’t think I would say her doing her (very, very well compensated) job is a slap in the face to anyone.

      • Just Me says:

        It’s called marketing. Yes, women do it all the time, but does every woman know those women? Jessica is a highly visible public persona that most people are aware of. Having her, a woman who has been taunted, ridiculed & humiliated in the media for her weight gain, is very good for the Weight Watchers brand . While you may not be impressed, there are millions of women out there who will be. I certainly am. Good for her.

    • Just Me says:

      I totally agree, Dani.

  10. YummyMummy says:

    Jessica looks fabulous! She looks so healthy and toned too. Amy Adams looks great casual. Why can’t Duchess Kate dress like this?
    PS. Honk honk! If I have to hear all about Kim and kanye’s wedding why not Jessica’s too.

    • wheezy says:

      @yummymummy I second that motion!

      P.s holy cow she looks great- and is showing it off the right way…not row boat ass shots. Jessica looks beautiful

  11. Ennie says:

    She looks pretty good! She’s beautiful.

  12. someone says:

    She looks great, and you can tell she’s been working out a lot by her legs and calves. I give her a lot of credit because I didn’t think she could lose all that weight. Or maybe I didn’t want her to be able to lose all that weight – it made me feel better that while she was fabulously rich and had two adorable kids she also struggled with her weight like us plain folk. Now she has the whole package! Way to show us all Jess!!

  13. birkbop says:

    Hey Courtney Love looks sober-ish!

  14. elo says:

    She looks AMAZING! That is all.

  15. MrsBPitt says:

    JS looks amazing!

  16. lunchcoma says:

    Yeah, she looks good. I’m glad that she seems to be happy, but I’m not really all that tuned into what she’s doing in life (though I’ll confess to owning a couple pairs of her shoes…they’re kind of cute if you can ignore the label).

    • Wiffie says:

      That’s so funny. When I’m shopping and a pair of shoes grabs me, almost every time I look, and they’re JS. gotta hand it to her.

  17. Daaahling says:


  18. Josephine says:

    Has anyone talked about anything but her weight for the past few years? Her weight has keep her in the public eye. Her weight has always gone up and down – hopefully she has found a way to just live happily and stop focusing on diet all the time.

    • Artemis says:

      Crank out the Dukes of Hazard daisy dukes because Skinnica is back and that warrants attention and a legit celeb status. She hasn’t been in the news besides for her WW’s contract and now that she’s skinny again, she’s somehow relevant? Oh and her wedding of course. Meanwhile JA is hated on this site but she’s basically an employed child-free Jessica Simpson! Hair, wedding, men, babies.

      Without her diet and wedding, what is JS doing? I remember a time when she sang and acted as she had decent amount of talent and she ended up being a faux-designer and professional man-clinger/worshipper. Would anybody be checking for her at all if you take away the ‘body’ talk? Nope.

      • Josephine says:

        I agree – she doesn’t seem to have a movie or singing career anymore, and lending her name to clothing and shoe labels is not enough to be news-worthy. I don’t think anyone is saying she’s relevant – they are saying that her weight is relevant, and it has to stink for being known primarily for the ups and downs of your weight.

      • Artemis says:

        Yes. It’s her own fault though, it didn’t have to go like that. She was making enough money to never be seen in public again if she wanted to live her life her way (eating crap and taking care of her family) but clearly she likes the fame and the money. She seems greedy and now she has to sell her body and endure the weight-comments. She can still try and carve a decent career by working hard but I just don’t see it in the girl. She’s literally on KK’s level at this point but less try-hard and more liked for some reason.

    • kc says:

      not a fan, but I think that moving into fashion can be legitimate celebrity status nowadays. Victoria Beckham is still followed because of her fashion line and spouse not singing or acting, the Olsen sisters haven’t done anything outside of fashion for eons, and Jessica Simpson’s line covers shoes, clothing and accessories. I like her as a fashion person more than actress and singer. I don’t own anything from her and I doubt she designs anything, but it is still a large, recognizable brand. *shrugs*

      • Artemis says:

        I disagree. Posh was always a brand, regardless of her status as ex-Spice Girl, she was always going to be Mrs. Beckham. Only, she wasn’t content with that. She wanted more for herself. She wanted to be more than coasting on her previous fame and her husband’s name so she challenged herself. She didn’t need to use her family and body to sell the public something, she started her own brand and worked damn hard to be taken seriously. In Britain they were not respected (both Beckham and Posh) and were seen as chavs. To turn that around the way she did what she had to do looks- and businesswise. I fully believe nothing goes past Posh without her knowledge. Can you claim the same for JS who farts during meetings, is more focused on buying the love of her perma-fiancé and has whoopsie-babies because she loves sex so much?

        The Olsens didn’t need to. Their brand was established throughout their highly successful film career. They were named fashion icons and trendsetters even before they showed interest in entering the fashion world! JS was not successful enough in her showbusiness career to establish herself as a brand and Lachey was also a B-lister. If anything, her reality TV show turned her into a brand and we all know how people feel about that so nobody can claim it’s a valuable status. Nobody was checking JS’s style.

      • Bridget says:

        You’ve named basically the only two celebrity labels that are legitimately successful as fashion, rather than just licensed and mass produced for big box retailers. They’re definitely not the rule, and took years and years of hard work for those ladies to get where they are. For the most part, celebrity lines are just a vanity, or an attempt to make easy cash.

  19. Loopy says:

    Oh wow look at those calves. I hope she really lost it all the natural way, hate to be a Debbie Downer but her belly stretched so much during her first pregnancy and then she quickly became pregnant again,good for her if she really did manage to get her flat tummy back. But we have not seen any bikini shots, like Mariah who has so obviously gotten a tummy tuck.

  20. Zigggy says:

    She looks great! Honk!

  21. Anon says:

    There are many that care. This site is not usually the site to see a lot of positive for Jessica so a very nice change up so far.:)))

    You will see a vast difference in two weddings.. One will be over the top and extravagant and the other will be more down to earth but beautiful with some actual romance showing.. You pick. Lol

    I doubt you will ever see bikini shots ever again but it doesn’t mean the tummy is nit real and tones. Iwould bet until laser can take stretch marks and i also believe she said no more bikinis for public.

  22. Ag says:

    Jessica looks great! Healthy and strong, not rail-thin or sickly.

    • Gia says:

      Give her time.

      • stinky says:

        shes just one of those types.
        and its not the end of the world.
        it jusr is.
        she happens to be very v-e-r-y pretty whether she’s fat or not.

    • FLORC says:

      She is healthy and strong looking. She’s often spoke how much she hates dieting and working out. I think she’d feel fine if she gained weight. Especially after how she hated getting into Daisy Duke size. Saying something about how awful it was to work out and not eat fried chicken.

      I honestly think she’s a fat and happy kind of woman. Unless she’s paid big bucks this weight will not stay off.

  23. Shiksa Goddess says:

    I think Jessica looks great and very healthy.

  24. idk says:

    What happened to her singing career? All she’s known for now a days is getting pregnant and losing weight. I guess since her shoe and clothing line is doing so well, she doesn’t need to sing anymore. But honestly, once she has her wedding, will she disappear? What will there be to talk about?

    • lunchcoma says:

      She was a teen idol, and she’s not the right age to appeal to teens anymore. I don’t think this is any particular slight on Jessica. None of her musical peers have very active singing careers, either. Hilary Duff doesn’t seem to be working much at all. Mandy Moore is an actress. Christina Auguilera is a talent show judge. Britney Spears, the biggest of them all, has a Las Vegas show and occasionally releases an album, but isn’t the same sort of star she used to be.

      I think Jessica is doing what she wants to with her life, and if that means she isn’t singing, that’s fine.

      • idk says:

        She never had that big of a singing career anyways. Her reality show is what got people really interested in her (the ridiculous comments she used to make and how she drove Nick crazy lol). I think she is making a lot more money from her clothing/shoe line anyways. Yes she was a “teen idol” but so was Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, etc. Sometimes your audience grows with you and sometimes they don’t. It seemed like she was never really into being a singer anyways. Either way, once her wedding is over, will people have any interest in her?

      • lunchcoma says:

        That’s true. A few people with extraordinary talent can make the jump from teen idol to established adult performer. I meant more that this isn’t some sort of extreme or specific failure on Jessica’s part. It’s something that’s happened to lots of her peers, and she’s handled the transition fairly well.

        After her wedding, we’ll occasionally hear about her weight fluctuations, and there will be a story every now and then speculating about pregnancy or divorce, which is pretty much the level of coverage she gets now.

  25. Happy21 says:

    She looks amazing!! I don’t necessarily need to be that small but we share a body type and I’d love to look (almost) like that!! :)

    But in all honesty I just like her period. I like her heavy and I like her small. She just seems like she’s a lot of fun.

  26. lucy2 says:

    She looks great, I bet she’s been working hard and happy to show it off.
    I think Morena just had a baby recently too, she looks great as well.

  27. Vl says:

    I like Jessica, she’s like a special needs puppy.

  28. Kate says:

    Pretty sure Amy Adams actually hosted this event and helped chair it as a way to help children of sexual assault. She didn’t just show up to be “seen” in a tight dress at an event honoring sexually abused kids. Personally I care a lot more about that then how much weight a nobody like Jessica Simpson has lost…..

  29. aenflex says:

    Is praising someone for losing weight and becoming thin tantamount to shaming someone for becoming fat?

    • Rosetta Stoned says:

      It feels that way, at least when I gain and then lose, it does.
      By the way, I’ve liked your comments today! I hope you’ll stick around the site. Might make me comment more, lol.

    • Nina W says:

      Only if you completely disregard the person and their feelings. I have yet to meet the person that doesn’t expect praise for serious weight loss. They want to hear it. They expect to hear it. You may deem it inappropriate and tantamount to shaming but I disagree, in my experience people like to receive praise and encouragement as well as acknowledgement of their hard work and achievement.

  30. GeeMoney says:

    I think she looks good.

  31. murphy says:

    I like that she didn’t try to squeeze into an even smaller dress just to do it, that dress looks good a little loose.

  32. littlestar says:

    WOW, Jessica looks great. I’ve always had a soft spot for her, since her Newlywed days. And her legs looks so muscular and strong!

    • idk says:

      You can tell she’s been using a lot of leg weights or something. Her calves were never that muscular before. I’m not sure it’s a good look on her though. I mean she looks great and all but I wonder why she felt the need to get such muscular calves?

  33. Jayna says:

    I always hated how she did her commercials. Just kind of hiding her body weight and then showing it off as she got thinner. No other star did that for WW or JG. It didn’t make sense to me

  34. Ari says:

    Tyler Hoechlin can be anywhere he wants to be and I will be a happy camper :)

    • Fatty Magoo says:

      Yes! Lol I love Tyler Hoechlin. I never see anything about him so I don’t know why Kaiser is complaining lol I’ll take him where I can have him lol

  35. Jen34 says:

    Wow. I think everyone looks good. Not at all what I was expecting. LOL

  36. neelyo says:

    There are many celebs whose sole career is weight gain and loss and now Jessica Simpson joins the ranks. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know she’s an amazing businesswoman with a great line of clothes. But what is he most known for now? Gaining and losing weight.

    I don’t care about her weight but can anyone tell me what the hell she did to her mouth? For the last three years she’s spoken like her jaw is wired shut. Maybe that’s the real weight loss secret.

  37. Sam H x says:

    Didnt Jessica like license her name and sold it for alot of money?! She’s not exactly the brains behind the operation, It’s the business savvy people behind the scenes doing the actual work and making a ton of money out of her clothing and shoes line. She just promotes the stuff when she needs to I assume and her brand makes enough money for her to live off.

  38. Bridget says:

    I’d be far more impressed if JSimp had to lose her weight like the rest of us: cooking her ownmeals, balancing gym time with kid time, and working a 30-40 hour week. Are we seriously lauding a woman for losing 40 pounds with the help of a personal trainer, chef, nannies, and plenty of time to do it in? And that she was paid a huge amount of money to do?

  39. Mandy says:

    Jess looks amazing! Good for her!

  40. L says:

    She does look good, but I wish she would do something different with the damn hair.

  41. KateBush says:

    She looks gd, that picture from behind she needs to lay off the fake tan tho.. Look at the colour of her legs! But it could be the lighting I guess.
    I’m keen on hearing about the wedding, but I love all weddings.. Apart from Kim Ks that is :)

    Ps Joe looks absolutely gorgeous. He is smokin!

  42. whateveryouwantittobe says:

    I am so sick of watching her yo yo diet, it’s unhealthy and it won’t last.

  43. Leah says:

    Are people just upset she proved them wrong or what is with all the negativity and “qualifications” people are trying to put on her achieving her goal?

    I think she looks great and I’ll honk for more Jessica. Rather hear about her for some variety in the usual that we hear about daily.

  44. Anon says:

    Its bullcrap for those that cry foul for using trainers, chefs. Thats an excuse for those that are not willing to try. Its a lifestyle. You all know how to ride a book cook a healthy meal run walk step away from a plate etc.. This is WW showing you how to do it. Just because your not wealthy does not excuse you from achieving the same.. Celebs are spokes people that is it and show you the way.. The rest is up to you and how bad you want it.. Most everyone can read or watch TV right.. Serioulsy quit with excuses

    • Bridget says:

      I absolutely didn’t say it was cheating, but I did say it’s not a particularly impressive feat. She was paid a boatload of money to lose maybe 50lbs. That was her job, and she had absolutely every tool out there to make it easier for her. And I absolutely hate how much she’s contributing to this mentality that somehow measures a woman’s worth as a mom by how fast she loses the baby weight. It’s ridiculous.

      * by the way, this is coming from a mom of a 3 year old and a 5 year old who has run 3 marathons and 2 ultras in the past 3 years and has logged thousands of miles on the road. Honestly, I’m probably in better shape than Jessica. So no, I’m not just jealous.

  45. Nesi says:

    Honking and proud of it. Jessica looks fab, her husband is friggin hot and her kids are beyond adorable.

  46. TWINK says:

    She’s so bland, this is another ANTIhonk!!

  47. snowflake says:

    love her! honk!!!

  48. kitty-bye says:

    Wow! Happy for her if she is healthy etc. Looks great :D

  49. Lis says:

    As long as she keeps her mouth closed, she can show off whatever she wants. Her Weight Watchers commercial would be much better without sound. ;)

  50. Joh says:

    She looks hard. Harsh.

  51. Anon says:

    For those interested Jessica will be speaking on May 15 in NYC at a Forbes event. Women defined over 250 women will be attending Yes she will be speaking.
