Jessica Simpson Photo Shoots That Look Nothing Like Jessica Simpson — PHOTOS

Times sure have changed for Jessica Simpson, a pop star who didn't quite achieve the same level of chart success as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, but created her own successful empire years later. In terms of her looks, Her style also evolved through the years and there were definitely times when Jessica Simpson looked nothing like herself. However, if there is one thing that has stayed consistent about the singer and entrepreneur, it's definitely her upbeat personality.

"It’s important to not take yourself too seriously," Simpson told Women's Wear Daily . "You can take your brand seriously, but not yourself." It was this kind of winning attitude that made us fall in love with Simpson, a singer who became America's sweetheart, thanks to her reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica alongside then-husband Nick Lachey. The couple married in 2002 and documented their life at home through the hit MTV series. Sadly, Simpson and Lachey's marriage lasted until 2006, when their divorce was finalized.

While the Teen Vogue cover below perfectly represents Simpson during that period of her life, she has since found new roles: as a mother of two children (with former NFL player Eric Johnson) and as the founder of her own billion-dollar fashion empire. But along the way, Simpson appeared in several magazine covers and photo shoots where she didn't look quite like herself.

Here are eight Jessica Simpson photoshoots that managed to make her look unrecognizable:

Simpson looks fabulous and also a bit like drag queen Lady Bunny in this campy cover.

Good Housekeeping

The floral print of her dress overpowers the shot, but Simpson could also be mistaken for a Real Housewives cast member here.

Before the hit songs, reality show, and fashion empire, she was simply an adorable 17-year-old with big dreams and a big smile.
