Ashlee Simpson A Victoria's Secret Model?

Kathryn Finney of The Budget Fashionista points out this copy in this month's Marie Claire regarding the Ashlee Simpson's recent contract with Victoria's Secret:

"She's had it with Hollywood's twisted view of feminine beauty. Her goal: to get women to appreciate their diverse shapes and sizes. Along with a group of teens, Simpson sends the kind of message we all want to hear".

And here's Kathryn's soapbox moment:

"This is the type of fakeness that really bugs me about Hollywood. I have no problem with plastic surgery when it's used to make you feel better and not turn you into the "cat" lady or Janice Dickinson (whom I love and who said hello to me while budding in front of me at Betsey Johnson's Fall 2006 fashion show). Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and I are BFFs (well at least in my head). I give the Victoria Secret models as much props as I give the models in Figures magazine. However, I do have a problem when stars try to say how much they love their bodies and how much we should all love our bodies and then go and get $5000 nose jobs to look like their older sister. Or get gastic bypass surgery and lie and say that the rapid weight loss was from doing pilates three days a week. "

So true. So very true.
