Jessica Simpson can dust off those Daisy Dukes!
The star flaunted her hot post-baby body at the launch party for her new clothing line at Macy’s in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Nov. 10, and insiders tell the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now, that after giving birth to daughter Maxwell just six months ago, the star has shed the 70 pounds of baby weight she gained during her pregnancy — and then some!
“She’s eating well and exercising and feels healthy,” a friend of the Fashion Star mentor, 32, tells the mag.

Jess, who’s engaged to ex-NFL tight end Eric Johnson, has a deal with Weight Watchers and has been hitting the gym with longtime trainer Harley Pasternak. “She’s doing amazing,” Pasternak tells Life & Style. “She comes to my studio four days a week and is ahead of schedule!”
All this is icing on the (low-calorie) cake for Jessica, who was hurt by criticism about her body, says a pal. “Jessica got skinny!” raved an eyewitness at the Macy’s event on Nov. 10. “She definitely lost the baby weight. She looks great!”
