Jessica Simpson continues to look svelte and sexy during a trip to NYC with her hubby Eric Johnson.
The newlywed donned two flattering ensembles while in the Big Apple, and both happened to be the city’s signature choice of clothing color: black!
During a date night last night at trendy eatery The Dutch, the mother of two proudly showed off her fit figure in a pair of black flare pants and a black tank top, accessorized with a of-the-moment black fringe handbag.
And the following morning, the singer turned fashion mogul opted for a decidedly more feminine look than we’ve seen her wear lately—a pleated midi skirt and T-shirt worn with leopard print pumps.
Meanwhile, her husband wore a sleek suit for both outings and made sure to hold his leading lady’s hand during each of their big city strolls.
During a recent chat with Matt Lauer, Simpson confessed that she didn’t let the harsh media criticism about her weight break her spirit…in fact, it did quite the opposite.
“[The scrutiny] empowered me to rise above and stand up for all the women out there that do have trouble losing the weight,” she explained.
“It wasn’t really my priority to please the public and make them feel like I’m supposed to be looking like I did when I was 25.”
And when asked whether there was even more added pressure to drop the baby weight quickly because of her Dukes of Hazzard sex symbol days, she responded, “I don’t think that I wasn’t still a sex symbol [with the weight]. To my husband, I was still extremely sexy.”
