Jessica Simpson Shows Off Weight Loss in Her Spring 2014 Ads

Jessica Simpson's Spring/Summer 2014 CollectionNo one is apparently looking more forward to swimsuit season than Jessica Simpson, who flaunts her dramatic post-baby body in a series of photos for her eponymous line's upcoming collection.

Photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth, the mother of two models a curve-hugging white swimsuit (seen to the right and after the jump) in a couple photos and some floral frocks in others (seen after the jump). "This swimsuit is feminine and a little retro in its detailing... It's very sexy, but it still leaves something to the imagination. And the shape is incredibly flattering," Simpson said.

Unwerth shot the images at a residence outside of Santa Barbara back in November.

Simpson, 33, explained the inspiration behind her Spring/Summer 2014 line: "This season we brought a feminine take to the current trend toward casual... For instance, pairing a loose-knit sweater or an oversize worn-in denim jacket over a dainty floral print romper, or adding a touch of a pastel rose print to the lapel of a moto jacket. You'll see a lot of floral throughout the line—perfect for spring."

Isaac Mizrahi: Too-Skinny Models Are a Problem of the Past

Isaac MizrahiFashion designer Isaac Mizrahi believes that models' body issues are a thing of the past.

Despite three fashion models dying in the past six years from eating disorders and some still coming out these days saying that they're recovering from eating disorders, Mizrahi claims that such issues are no longer problems in today's industry:

"I don't notice girls anymore in the majority who are sickly-looking. Even if they're tall and thin now, they look healthier to me. Not fat, not fatter, but they just look healthier. I mean this -- there was a moment when there was this whole heroin chic thing and it just looked terrible. It just looked terrible! And now everyone points at it and goes, 'Oh dear, that's terrible.' And the girls are encouraged to be thin, but I don't think they're encouraged to look like drug addicts anymore. I mean, I'm sure there are some designers who like the girls to look like drug addicts, but not on the whole the way it was for a good 10 years -- like, in the middle of the '90s to around 2002 or so. There was that thing going on, and it was sickening, absolutely sickening. I don't think it exists anymore."

Quote of the Day: Jennifer Lawrence on ‘The Fashion Police’

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty, News,

Jennifer Lawrence

"There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. 'They call it 'fun' and they say 'welcome to the real world' - and that shouldn't be the real world, it's going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat."

- Jennifer Lawrence takes a stand against body shaming in the media. Don't you just love every word that comes out of this woman's mouth?

Tori Spelling Lied About Baby Weight Loss

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: D-List, Television, Pregnancies,

Tori SpellingTori Spelling lied about her weight loss after giving birth.

The 40-year-old actress has admitted she wasn't honest about how she shed the pounds following the birth of her son Finn in August 2012, revealing she severely restricted her food intake rather than taking up exercise like she previously claimed. In April, Tori said she had taken up low-impact cardio and a healthy diet of fish and vegetables, but in her new autobiography Spelling It Like It Is, she wrote, "I really don't exercise much, period. So I took off my weight the old-fashioned way. I like to call it the 'Just Keep Your F**king Mouth Shut and Eat Air' diet. It's all the rage. My publicist had given me clear instructions about what to say about my weight loss. Women didn't want to know that I had lost weight through dieting, not exercising. I didn't want to be the a**hole who didn't work for it. So I said that I swam. It was sort of a bad choice. I can't do much more than a doggy paddle."

The actress - who also has son Liam, six, and daughters Stella, five, Hattie, two, with husband Dean McDermott - previously said she had taken up swimming to help lose weight and had substituted her husband's home cooked meals with lean sushi.
