Jessica Simpson's dramatic weight loss shocked those in attendance at the traditional annual Correspondents' Dinner at the White House in Washington on Saturday. The event brought together an impressive audience of stars, who came to listen to jokes told by Barack Obama as well as others. For the occasion, the 33 year-old singer and actor wore a black and white floor-length Carolina Herrera gown. The pretty blonde, who was on the receiving end of a joke told by comedian Joel McHale, looked absolutely divine in her long flowery dress.
According to sources with E! News, much of Jessica's weight loss was due to her constantly chasing after her toddler, Maxi, who is almost two-years-old. Simpson also explained that she often takes long walks, enjoys gardening and other outdoor activities that keep her active.
