Jessica Simpson has a natural magnetism that attracts fans, media, and critics alike. The bombshell blonde is no stranger to ridicule and derision, but she doesn't let it stop her. An undeniable powerhouse, she quickly finds herself at the top of any industry she tries. Despite her reputation as being ditzy, she is clearly a smart, highly talented woman and her success in the music, fashion, cosmetics, and modeling industries are a testament to that.
Simpson seems to have a sense of humor about herself, and the controversy she tends to court.
The 37-year-old mother of two is no wall flower. Her Instagram feed is full of gorgeous high-fashion shots, gorgeous casual family shots, and gorgeous shots of Simpson hamming it up with friends. Simpson’s characteristic pout, curvy and fit physique, and long blonde hair give her a classically sexy, pin-up, Marilyn Monroe-esque appeal, and she knows how to work it.
Certainly not camera shy, Simpson's life involves many glamorous make-overs for many glamorous photo shoots.
She travels the world, wears fabulous clothes, and is constantly photographed. If she wears a certain brand of make up or dress, it will sell. Having her own fashion line, she is a walking billboard for her own brand.
Make-up, fashion, and posing for the camera are big parts of her job, and they are featured prominently in her Instagram feed.
Her Instagram feed features her family life as well.
Simpson may possess more than her fair share of natural gifts between her beautiful exterior, her singing and song writing skills, and her business and fashion acumen. She is also blessed with a clearly loving partner, and two healthy children she adores.
There are a few things we know to be true: 1) A person’s Instagram feed is a highly cultivated, narrow sliver of a glimpse into the truth of her life.
To think you know the totality of Simpson as a mother from the photos she chooses to share is ridiculously small minded.
More we know to be true: 2) Small children look up to and want to emulate their parents.
Small children only know what they are exposed to, which generally for 5-year-olds means that they know a little bit about their parents’ jobs. 5-year-old daughters of policewomen know a little about police work. 5-year-old daughters of doctors know a little about medicine. And 5-year-old daughters of celebrity fashion icons, know about how to strike a pose.
Simpson is taking some heat from a recent photo she shared of herself and her daughter enjoying a girls' day out.
Little girls think their mothers are beautiful and perfect and they want to be just like them. When being beautiful and looking perfect is actually a big part of your mom’s career when you’re growing up, then that’s what you know and copy.
Maxwell sees her mom get professionally made up, get her hair done, get her clothes styled, and then she sees her pose for fashion shoots, pose for paparazzi, pose for fans. It’s perfectly natural that Maxwell loves make-up and knows how to strike a pose.
