Her Way: Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson has undergone a noteworthy personal style evolution, inspired, she says, by coming to terms with some serious body issues over the course of the last year. She stopped fighting her hourglass silhouette, for instance, after realizing that "we all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that's not always what's beautiful. It's about making peace with yourself."

This sea change came out of her globe-spanning journey for her VH1 show, The Price of Beauty—a trip that also provided the tools to diversify her wardrobe. "I encountered such vibrant colors," says Simpson, recalling shopping excursions that yielded ethnic accessories way out of her casual-pretty comfort zone: ornate Indian bangles, leather bags from North Africa. "Morocco was a huge influence on me when it comes to jewelry and fashion," she says. "You can't help but want to buy caftans when you're there!"
