Jessica Simpson, make-up free on the cover of Marie Claire!

I was just about to hit the hay when I spotted a bare-faced Jessica Simpson on the cover of Marie Claire over on 2oceansvibe. Wowzers. Go Jessica. Go Marie Claire! I'm bagging this mag as soon as I spy it in the shops! This is why I love Marie Claire. They're never afraid to take a risk and push the proverbial envelope. It's one of the few mags that I literally read from cover to cover. The other day, I was chatting to a mate about a certain fash mag and she commented that (like many, I'm sure) she flips through the fashion pages and skips the articles. Those poor journalists! Marie Claire, on the other hand, has always been a seamless blend of fashion and cutting-edge news that you want to read. Grown up and glamorous! I also love how they were the first to spot a gap in reality telly and went on to produce the super slick 'Running in Heels.' I thought Joanna Coles was very brilliant and lovely. Anyway, back to Jessica. I think she looks simply gorgeous! Right, must sleep. Night night. x

I'd love to be as optimistic but she's def wearing makeup and been photoshopped...the natural look is great but it's not makeup free...it kinda bums me out because this is how young women get the wrong impression of what they see in magazines and how unattainable it all is. Sorry to burst the bubble :(

Cands - do you really think so? I think she's just blessed with good colouring and nice skin. Don't think Marie Claire would take the chance of being caught out. But I agree with 100% on woman getting duped by mags - they really do overwork the pics sometimes. Thanks for your comment. x
