Jessica Simpson Shaves Like a Man

To the left: Jessica Simpson shaving off her “beard” on the May 2008 cover of Esquire Magazine. (It’s the mag’s 75th anniversary.)

To the right: The 1964 Esquire cover that inspired it, featuring Italian actress Virna Lisi. Lisi is now 70-years-old.

Fun fact: Simpson and Lisi were both 27 at the time of their respective cover shoots.

    Fantastica Virna Lisi! :D

  • JANE


  • remember da truth

    The other woman looked like a sexy 60′s woman shaving, a radical avant garde artsy idea back then.
    Jessica Simpson looks like a drag queen getting a last minute shave before going onstage.

  • LT

    The art director & photographer should’ve had her re-create the exact pose…Jessica’s version is not flattering. It would have made more sense and worked better for her. This cover is not good.

  • Tyra

    In the original pic Virna’s eyes are full of mischief and you know she is just fooling around. In the copycat pic,Jessica’s eyes are dead,her expressions, well expressionless and it looks like she is just doing her daily thing,without interest,just a repetion of of what she did yesterday and the day before and the day before.Like,she rolled out of bed from last night’s secret tranny party and now ready to have a clean shave and head to the office .
    This is ,in my opinion, the worst thing she has done so far to her ‘Career’(what is it remind me again)

  • Here’s The Deal

    That’s because Jessica Simpson IS a man.

  • 2good4u2

    Well it is interesting & has created quite a stir!! LOL Dare to be different & not be the norm has its downfalls.

    I actually think it’s a hoot. She knows all the comments about looking like a man from some but guess what thsi is right back at you. She giving it to you & laughing at you!!

    All these other womne follow & copycat each other I say give her credit for shakin in up. Good or bad!!! lol

    GO Jessica!!! Believe it this woman is not one dimensional as many claim she is.

  • reece

    Jessica looks awful
    Virna Lisi looks great

  • ale

    virna lisi insieme a sofia loren e anna magnani è la miglior attrice italia di tutti i tempi. w virnaaaaaaaaaaa

  • lauren

    looks bad! :S

  • Sam

    Jessica looks like a man.

  • Arab.Aquarius

    ugh, both this and the lindsay lohan shoot pale in comparison to original

  • depeche

    Virna Lisi is one of my alltime favs, and my alltime icon.

  • Sally

    Why can’t they just let Marilyn be Marilyn? Comparing yourself to her is never a good idea. You are always bound to fall short.

  • McLovin

    That’s not Marilyn Monroe. Can’t you read?

  • Fugly

    Lisi looks cute, feminine and fun. Simpson looks dead, stupid and like a man prepping for his next tranny outing.

  • Lillianne

    real cheezy imitation of Lindsay’s copycat of vintage Marilyn photos

  • rolling eyes

    Lindsay’s was a horrible imitation, she looked dead in it

    Jessica Simpson looks like she’s does this on regular basis and someone was around to take a photo… in short it was garbage too

    This proves the youngs ones while still alive can’t perform (even in a still picture) but the talents of the pass (while dead and gone) still got it…. pretty sad dont you think

    Hollywood truly downgraded when they decided mistake ppl like lindsay and Jessica as talented people…

  • hmm

    she looks like a man…

  • xo

    something is definitely off because her body looks huge compared to her head. not good.

  • Deb

    What is it w/these C rated actresses (i.e. Lindsay Lohan) copy catting.. Can’t they get an image of their own?????

  • [☆F a m o u s☆]

    she… looks like a man.

  • Padma

    Hey, here I have to defend Lindsay. She HAS actual talent, which is – sadly – a total waste on her, since she decided to rather party and f… around.

    Jessica is a spoiled, dumb brat that is famous for no reason. She’s so dull, why can’t we just leave her alone and RIP since she has no success at all?

  • rosie

    Oh My God, the second model the italian actress, looks like Caridee English from ANTM 7.

  • Vshizzle

    The original is much better…Jessica looks ridiculous…Virna in the original definitely potrays a fun sort slap stick humor to the shot…Jessica always comes across as phony and almost desperate…as if to say “I NEED A LIFE” Just like her hideous sis.

  • kate

    The difference?

    Jessica does LOOK LIKE a MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Never ever fem or pretty, all bleach and lipgloss and silicone.

  • athena

    She looks more like Marilyn Monroe than the Lindsay Lohan cover.

  • september

    excellant.Jessica is a great person!

  • unnamed

    She’s a beautiful woman.She’s so gorgeous. I love her. I saw her profile with photos and videos at m I also found her blog there.It’s said that she’s seeking for a young man to be the BF ? Is that ture ???

  • frances

    The difference is that Jessica Simpson really looks like a man and Virna Lisi doesn’t. LOL.

  • Melissa

    She looks beautiful as always!

  • anonymous

    Anyone else think that Kelly Rippa looks like Virna Lisi?

    When i saw the pic I thought both Kelly and Jessica had done the shoot! Anyways, BAD pic of Jessica. Her shoulders are WAY too broad and make her look like a man for this pic.

  • Marta
