The American actress and singer Jessica Simpson has given a fitting reply to a former Vogue employee who ‘body shamed’ her for donning a revealing attire at the 2007 Met Gala.
Earlier on Tuesday, the singer responded to Sally Singer who was an ex Vogue creative digital director after she criticized that Jessica’s “breasts maybe fell out” from her plummeting Roberto Cavalli gown that she wore at the 2007 event.
The Vogue special edition named as “Only at the Met: An Oral History of the World’s Most Glamorous Gala,” Sally rewinds the catch up between Jessica and her then-lover John Mayer that she told she saw them at dinner.
Sally stated that: “One year Jessica Simpson was there with John Mayer,” 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.’ And John Mayer was putting his hands on them at the dinner table. He kind of reached down and I just remember thinking, ‘Oh, celebrities, feel free to play here. That’s what’s going on.’”
To this statement, Jessica replied back to Sally’s Instagram page stating that she is “inaccurate” and “nauseating.”
Posting a black and white picture of Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield, the actress captioned: “Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body-shamed by #SallySinger.”
“But in all seriousness, I have persevered through shaming my own body and internalizing the world’s opinions about it for my entire adult life,” Simpson continued. “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.”
Further many of her followers came in rescue for Jessica commenting where one said
“I would chalk it up to complete jealousy,” and yet another wrote: “Wow. She definitely could’ve left that ‘story’ out. Unnecessary and mean…Keep being you.”
“U go girl don’t let anyone tell you how u should look u are perfect,” a third one commented.
“I was looking forward to reading the article, disappointed to hear about this. You are amazing any shape or size!” one more wrote.
On Tuesday Vogue addressed Jessica asking sorry for the article and stated that: “We are sorry that Jessica felt body-shamed by the anecdote in our Met piece,” and “That was never our intent, but we understand her reaction and we apologize for including it.”
