Jessica Simpson may not know the definition of homage, but she pays homage to Demi Moore’s groundbreaking 1991 cover on Vanity Fair. Simpson’s nude and pregnant photo for the April cover of Elle is virtually identical to Moore’s pose with a profile view of a full belly and hands covering the more controversial areas. You can view the two covers here and decide for yourself who looks better knocked up and in the buff.
Simpson of reality TV and fashion fame notes her nervousness about the magazine’s release, yet also feels proud of the photo. She tweeted, “My Elle cover comes out today!! I’m a lil nervous but I’ve never felt more beautiful or empowered. I hope you like it!!!”
She also inadvertently reveals the sex of her newborn when she belabors the downside of having a girl with fiancee Eric Johnson: “Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.” God forbid her baby girl grows up to be a Nike-wearing athlete! The worry must be such a burden for Jessica Simpson.
