Jessica Simpson understands the struggle all women face when shaving their legs: It’s impossible not to miss a spot. The 37-year-old shared a funny picture on Instagram over the weekend, showing off some wispy blonde hairs on her calf. She captioned the shot “missed a spot.”
For the mogul who has built a billion dollar empire with her Jessica Simpson Collection, it was nice to see that even all that money can’t get you perfectly hairless legs every time. Commenters went wild, loving Jessica’s honestly and how relatable her photo was. “#momlife I always miss my knees,” wrote one fan. “I gave up getting every spot long ago. Lol,” added another fan.
Jessica isn’t the first celebrity to draw attention to her body hair. In April, Bella Thorne Snapchatted her first bikini wax, sharing her very real screams of pain for her followers. “Nooo! This is terrible!” she said in the funny (and too-real footage).
If Jessica wants to embrace her hairy legs on a more permanent basis, she won’t be the only high-profile woman to do so. In addition to Bella, women like Mo’Nique, Tyra Banks, and Mayim Bialik have been known to walk red carpets without shaving. Or take fitness blogger Morgan Mikenas, who hasn’t shaved her legs in over a year and says she considers shaving “pointless.”
Either way, we’re loving how Jessica is keeping her leg shaving #struggles candid and funny. Because girl, we’ve ALL been there.
