Marie Claire has a “No Need for Make-up or Photoshop” initiative this month and the covergirl who agreed to reveal her natural beauty is Jessica Simpson. US Weekly has the details:
Glamour girl? For the May cover of Marie Claire, Jessica Simpson went without makeup or retouching.
The reason: To promote her new initiative, â€œA Beautiful Me,â€ a program she is launching next month to encourage young women to love themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin.
â€œI don’t have anything to prove anymore,â€ says the singer, 29, who once admitted to getting too much Restylane in her lips. â€œWhat other people think of me is not my business.â€â€˜
Still, she tells the magazine she likes to get dolled up every once in a while. â€œIf I’m in a mood to go out and feel hot and sexy, I want long hair that I can feel on my back,â€ she says. â€œBut I also like bed head.â€
Although Simpson said she was thrilled to shoot VH1’s The Price of Beauty – which centers on her world travels to discover how other cultures define beauty – viewers aren’t responding. Her show’s March debut attracted around 1 million people, getting beat by a show on The History Channel.
