Jessica Simpson took to social media to respond to not-so-pleasing comments about her by former Vogue magazine editor Sally Singer regarding her Met Gala outfit in 2007.
The Met Gala was canceled this year just like many other social events because of the coronavirus. Vogue decided to keep the party going by doing an oral review of past Met Gala events and the oral recount was published on the Vogue website. In it, Singer remembered the 2007 Met Gala event and particularly focused on Jessica Simpson and John Mayer who was her boyfriend at the time. Singer claimed that she thought Simpson’s breasts fell out of her dress while she was on the red carpet.
“She was wearing Michael Kors and her breasts maybe fell out of her dress on the red carpet…and then at dinner it was suddenly like, whoa, Jessica Simpson’s breasts are across from me at the dinner table and they are on a platter and I’m looking at them,” stated Sally.
Having heard about those body-shaming remarks, Jessica decided to address the issue through social media. Simson posted a photo on Instagram featuring a lengthy caption about how she was dismayed by the fact that she was body-shamed by a woman in 2020.
Simpson’s post featured an old photo in which Sophia Loren seemed to be enviously eying Jayne Mansfield’s busty cleavage. Jessica decided to use that image in reference to Singer’s statement in remembrance of the 2007 Met Gala event in which Singer revealed that she was eying Simpson’s breasts. Jessica happened to be wearing a dress with a plunging neckline that exposed her busty ample chest to a decent amount and it just so happened that Sally could not keep her eyes off Simpson’s breasts.
Jessica stated that the photo depicts how she felt after reading the Met Gala article in which Sally body-shamed her. The actress also wrote that being body-shamed by another woman for having breasts in this day and age was rather nauseating. Jessica went ahead to describe the Vogue oral history as inaccurate.
