Another big hair, bad fashion moment from Jessica Simpson

I have just literally hit publish on a post about three fashion mistakes that make you look old. And the post was mainly about Jessica Simpson and her big hair. And then I pull out some more recent photographs of Jessica and see that she has gone for the big hair, big chest look for her hosting duties on her reality tv show ‘Fashion Star’ (is that what it is called?  (I don’t know if it has been broadcast in Australia).

I can’t even bring myself to write anything more about her recent lack of style.  She was showing so much promise too.

Three fashion mistakes that make you look old

Sorry I’ve been MIA this past week. We were celebrating our son’s first birthday and our daughter’s third birthday and now I’m exhausted!

Anyway, it looks like Jessica Simpson’s ‘style’ is returning to haunt me.  Above is the photograph that Jessica posted on twitter and the photos below are her on a US talk show.

There are three styling mistakes that Jessica has made with this look – and not much to redeem herself with. These are:

– the hair
– the dress
– the matching shoes and lipstick.

The hair

Of everything that I think is wrong with this look, it’s the hair that is really killing me.   It is big and horribly styled with the long fringe, loose curls and poof at the back.

Jessica seems to like big hair – she’s worn it again and again (okay it’s not as bad here) and again.

I like her hair better when it is not styled and ‘flat’ (by her likely definition). The big hair, in my humble opinion, makes her look trashy and cheap. And older. Much older. And once you’re over 25, well you don’t want to look older, ever.

The dress

I don’t actually have major issues with Jessica’s dress, a black body con with lace sleeves. It would be a cute dress on its own. But teamed with the big hair and the matching shoes and lipstick, it is too much. Too much bing ba da boom!

The matching shoes and lipstick

Are we doing this now? Is this a new trend? I thought that matching shoes and handbags was so early 2000’s. Have we moved on to matching lipstick and shoes? I would have thought it would be quite difficult to find such a close match of bright, almost neon, purple pink in shoes or lipstick. But I’m not Jessica Simpson.

Final comment

Everything aside, doesn’t Jessica look like a hoot in these photographs? I’m guessing this was the interview when she accidentally (on purpose?) told everyone about the weiner inside of her. My husband and I still laugh to this day over the whole ‘is it chicken or is it fish’ comment on her Newlyweds show. That was gold, people, gold!

Sometimes Kim gets it right and sometimes she gets it so so wrong

I can’t bare to look at these pictures for too long.  Kim has had some gorgeous pregnancy looks and then she goes and ruins it by dressing like this.  There are too many things that are wrong with this look.

That jacket.  It is hideous.  Mostly because of the metres and metres of material that make it look like it has been stupidly rescued from the 80s or 90s.  

Those pants.  Kim has skinny legs.  Wearing pants that don’t taper at the calves is criminal.  It makes your legs look larger!

Gosh, I just can’t write anymore.  It’s too much (material).
