Jessica Simpson, 43, slips back into her Daisy Duke short shorts… after starring in Dukes Of Hazzard 18 years ago
Jessica Simpson has shared new photos to promote her Jessica Simpson Fall 2023 collection.
The 43-year-old artist looked ready to lasso a horse as she slipped back into a pair of Daisy Duke cut-off blue jeans, which she paired with a matching cardigan.
The designer also wore very tall black short boots.
The star wore the same type of shorts beautifully in the 2005 film Dukes Of Hazzard.
In another shot, Simpson was also seen modeling a denim button-up shirt, which exposed her black lace bra.
The Employee of the Month actress also wore silver and turquoise jewelry and her long blonde hair was worn in soft beach waves over her shoulders.

Jessica married former NFL player Eric Johnson in 2014. The couple have three children: daughter Maxwell, 11; son Ace, nine; and daughter Birdie, four.
The former reality star admitted in 2019 that she lost 100 pounds almost six months after giving birth to her third daughter, Birdie.
She followed a meal plan and walked 14,000 steps a day with the help of celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak, and has since shared updates from the gym on how she has maintained the weight loss over the years.
‘6 months. Lost 100 pounds (yes, I tipped the scale at 240),” she wrote on Instagram as she revealed her weight loss.
‘My first trip away from #BIRDIEMAE and emotional for many reasons, but so proud to feel like myself again. Even when it seemed impossible, I chose to work harder.”
Harley told E! News at the time: ‘It had to be more than just getting back from her baby weight, but how do I keep up what I’m doing now forever. That’s why we’re not big fans of extreme diets or radical forms of exercise.’

Simpson told Hoda Kotb during a televised appearance Today Toon in 2021 that she never weighs herself anymore, doesn’t have a scale and follows her intuition with how she feels when choosing her clothes.
“I have no idea how much I weigh,” she said. ‘For example, I just want to feel good and be able to zip up my pants. If not, I have a different size. I have every size.”
In September 2022, Simpson said she likes to “monetize” the talk surrounding her fluctuating weight.
The star acknowledges that her weight has been the subject of speculation for years, and that it was actually one of the reasons she decided to launch her own clothing line, The Jessica Simpson Collection.

The singer told Extra, “I decided, ‘Okay, everyone’s going to talk about my weight all the time, I might as well make money from it and turn it into a business that sells clothes and gets accepted.’
In 2021, on the other hand, Jessica admitted to being hurt by the criticism she faced. The blonde beauty felt there was an intense focus on her appearance and her weight when she was younger.
She explained: ‘There is a beautiful body positivity movement now and the response to that part of my story has been overwhelmingly supportive.’
The debate about her weight left Jessica concerned about her appearance.
However, she has since learned to love her body. Jessica – who made her film debut in 2005 as Daisy Duke in ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ – said: ‘I spent so many years beating myself up about an unrealistic body standard that constantly made me feel like a failure.
“I’m still a work in progress when it comes to self-criticism, but now I have the tools to silence those voices in my head when they speak up. I believe deep down that a healthy body and a healthy connection between body and mind are really important and help me to accept imperfections as beauty.’
