Jessica Simpson, whose figure has been scrutinized in the press for years, continues, “I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions about it for my entire adult life. To read this much-anticipated article about the classiest fashion event there is and have to be shamed by another woman for having boobs in 2020 is nauseating.”
says she’s being “body-shamed” by Vogue after a former staffer claimed her breasts fell out of her dress at the 2007 Met Gala.
In “Only at the Met” — an oral history of annual ball, which was published on Vogue.com Tuesday — the magazine’s former creative digital director Sally Singer recalls of Simpson that “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.”
Simpson fired back on Instagram by posting the famed picture of Sophia Loren side-eying Jayne Mansfield’s breasts at a dinner with the caption, “Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body-shamed by [Singer].”
In another part of the article, Michael Kors recalls dressing Simpson one year, saying that he went to find her in the bathroom after he realized she’d been gone from the bash for a long time.
