Jessica Simpson is to use real women to model her fashion collection.
The curvy singer - who has faced criticism for her weight in the past - is reportedly set to turn her back on the trend of using skinny models in her New York Fashion Week show in September, and instead has decided to use real women to showcase her clothing collection.
An insider told Life and Style magazine: "Jessica Simpson plans to unveil her latest collection for the media at New York Fashion Week in September, but there's a twist. Instead of using super-skinny models to showcase her designs, Jessica has decided to send her best friends - real women in real sizes - down the aisle.
"This is the amount of the brand's retail grand revenue, not what Jessica takes home. She attends all business meetings and makes all major decisions. She's a sharp businesswoman and knows what women want."
The 30-year-old blonde admitted her television show 'The Price of Beauty' - which sees Jessica travel the globe to investigate some of the extreme lengths some women will go to in order to look good - has finally helped her accept to her body shape.
She explained: "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."
