    Jessica Simpson Wows In White Bridesmaid Dress At Sister Ashlee's Wedding

    Jessica Simpson is still relishing her moment as a bridesmaid in her sister Ashlee's wedding to Evan Ross over Labor Day weekend.

    The elder Simpson sister took to Instagram on Sunday to share a tender photo of herself with daughter Maxwell at the ceremony, captioned, "Bridesmaid and flower girl for @ashleesimpsonofficial and @eross88. I am madly I love with this moment!" The darling mother-daughter duo held hands in matching white dresses on the special day:
    The mother of two also took the time to wish her husband Eric Johnson a happy 35th birthday on Monday, sharing a photo of herself with the former NFL player on her Instagram account:

    Simpson and Johnson tied the knot on July 5 in a magical "Great Expectations"-themed ceremony held at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.

    Jessica Simpson Laughs, Ashely Judd Goes Off -- Which Star Handled Comments About Their Appearance Better?

    If laughter is the best medicine, then Jessica Simpson is probably feeling pretty great right now. The star of NBC's "Fashion Star" is uber-pregnant and has been taking some flack for how much weight she's gained. After Joy Behar said on "The View" that making fun of Jessica's verbal slip-ups "... is more fun to criticize than the fact that the girl is fat," stars like Tori Spelling came to her defense.

    Simpson's response though was just to joke about it in her Twitter feed with her fans. Said Jessica, "Last chance to see me 'fat' aka PREGNANT on the cover of Elle." So it looks like the 31-year-old who is expecting her first child later this year is choosing to take the high road with her critics and laugh it off, which is the completely opposite approach than what actress Ashley Judd is taking.

    The "Crossing Over" star has recently appeared in public and drawn some commentary from the press and on the Internet over the puffiness of her face. The commentary that enraged Judd was that either she had just had plastic surgery performed or that she'd "let herself go" and was just getting fat. Judd shot back angrily calling those comments "pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic."

    Judd wrote her response in an op-ed piece published on The Daily Beast, further deriding society's "abnormal obsession with women's faces and bodies" that she feels "has become so normal that we (I include myself at times - I absolutely fall for it still) have internalized patriarchy almost seamlessly." For the official record, Judd has explained the puffiness as being a side-effect of being on a month-long steroid treatment for a vicious cold.

    So which star handled their critics the best? Is it best for a star to simply laugh off the commentary on their looks, or is it best to confront them head-on? It's a matter of personal choice, made by the celebrity and their publicity team, of course, but would the way that either woman responded help to quiet their detractors?

    Both stars played to their strong suits. Simpson, certainly not considered an "intellectual" when it comes to debate, chose to let her effervescent and lighthearted nature temper her tweet. Judd, who is politically active and is even going to the Democratic National Convention later this year as a delegate, used her well-publicized intellect to craft a response.

    In the end, there may be a more fundamental question that Judd mentioned in her op-ed piece. As a society are we too hyper-focused on the looks of our celebrities, and specifically our female celebs? Is the criticism both ladies received ultimately two examples of the same problem?

    Talk about a baby bump! A very pregnant Jessica Simpson was spotted out in Beverly Hills over the weekend, rocking some serious high heels with her ready-to-pop belly on full display.

    You have to give the girl props -- many women have trouble walking in high heels under normal circumstances, let alone while being several months pregnant.

    Though Simpson has stayed mum on whether she and fiance Eric Johnson will soon be welcoming a boy or a girl into their family, the singer was reportedly spotted picking up some pink baby gear recently. While the mom-to-be is anticipating her bundle of joy's arrival, she has also admitted she's looking forwar

    d to getting back into pre-baby shape.
    "New goal: look like @jessicaalba after baby. Job well done lady!" Simpson tweeted earlier this year, later writing, "Looking forward to getting back into Daisy Duke shape ... I forget what having a waistline feels like!"
