Jessica Simpson Claps Back at Vogue Editor For Met Gala Comments

Jessica Simpson is speaking out about the comments made about her by Vogue editor Sally Singer.

Sally wrote that at the 2007 Met Gala, which Jessica attended with John Mayer, “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.”

Sally added that John “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.’”

Jessica spoke out about the comments on her Instagram, along with a vintage picture of Sophia Loren and Jayne Mansfield.

“Feeling a little like Jayne Mansfield after reading this (inaccurate!) oral history of the #MetBall where I am body shamed by #SallySinger,” Jessica wrote.

She added, “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. 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.”

See pictures from Jessica‘s appearance at the event below.

Vogue has since apologized to Jessica in a statement (via ET): “We are sorry that Jessica felt body-shamed by the anecdote in our Met piece. That was never our intent, but we understand her reaction and we apologize for including it.”

Either someone tipped Blake Lively off about the color of the Met Gala carpet for all of these years or she’s just had some very good luck!

The 32-year-old former Gossip Girl actress took to Instagram on Monday (May 4), the day the Met Gala would have happened this year, to show how she matched the carpet in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

“…when the carpet matches the Blakes. Met Ball 2018, 2017, 2016,” Blake wrote on Instagram with photos from each event.

In 2018, Blake attended the event in a Versace dress that matched the maroon elements on the carpet. She wore an Atelier Versace dress in 2017 and that dress’ blue train matched the blue on the carpet. In 2016, she wore a pink Burberry gown that matched the pink carpet.

“How far in advance do you have to tell Anna what color to make the carpet?” Blake‘s friend Gigi Hadid commented on the Instagram post.
