Jessica Simpson will grace Bazaar’s August cover. What makes the feature especially interesting was her interviewer — Simpson’s friend, designer Michael Kors.
“Access” caught up with Kors who got the lowdown from Simpson on fashion, those plastic surgery rumors and her secret alternate career dream.
Kors told “Access Hollywood,” he decided to interview the star, because of her long-standing effect on him. “Jessica is a great friend and she’s kind of a muse,” Kors explained. “She’s the all-American girl but she’s got a little edge to her.”
Simpson told Kors she dresses for the men in her life. When she was with boyfriend John Mayer — who’s a foot taller than 5-foot-4 Jessica, she told Kors, “I just wear really high heels.”
“I think she would play basketball in high heels if it was up to her,” Kors told “Access.”
Jessica believes men prefer shapely girls. As for Hollywood’s fascination to be thin, she said, “I don’t get the whole rail thing.”
“I think she’s proof positive that fashion can be pretty fabulous on a curvy girl who’s petite,” Kors enthused.
Regarding the plastic surgery controversy surrounding Jessica, she dispelled recent reports suggesting she has had a breast lift. She has, however, contemplated surgery for the future.
“I said to her, ‘You know what, if it all starts to droop what are you gonna do?’ and she looked at me and said, ‘Well you know what if it droops, maybe it’s time for a tune up,’” Kors recounted.
Among the surprising things he learned about the blonde bombshell? She had other careers in mind besides singing and acting.
“I asked her what else would you have done (in life career wise), and she said ‘I’d be a therapist.’ To me that would be like the job from hell, like who would want to be a therapist? When I thought about it, I was like, she is a good listener.”
