Ashlee Simpson the new face of Skechers
What is the deal with all of Ashlee's new endorsements and publicity? Such a wonderful message this is sending to young girls..."Now, children, if you get plastic surgery, hair extensions, and lose lots of weight, you can be rich and famous too!"

Skechers signs Simpson

Singer will promote footwear through 2007


canada.com

Published: Tuesday, July 18, 2006
Ashlee Simpson has signed on as the new face of Skechers.
The 21-year-old singer will replace previous celebrity endorsers Carrie Underwood, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears in promoting the company’s line of footwear.

"Ashlee is a leading force in the music industry," said Skechers president Michael Greenberg, in a release. "She's young, beautiful, talented, and … is also the perfect union between fashion and music, using her influence to empower young women to be themselves. We were drawn to her energy, style and grace.”

Under the agreement – the terms of which were not released – Simpson will appear in Skechers ads through 2007. She’ll do her first photo session for the company in August after wrapping up her summer concert tour.

“I grew up wearing Skechers. Like me, they are not afraid of taking chances and having fun," Simpson said in a release. “I'm happy to be a part of the brand and hope to add a few more pairs to my closet.”

You can tell her career is in trouble when she has to resort to some tacky sketchers to get publicity.

Huh.....funny how she's just now getting all these endorsements.....

Was she young, beautiful, and talented before the nose job/bleached hair/weight loss or coincidentially after?

When she was 'new to Hollywood' and doing her TV show, I didn't mind her as much but now that she's jumped on the Hollywood bandwagon and looks/acts like every other starlet bimbo out there, I anticipate her downfall with glee.

I thought she was cute when she had a big nose and black hair.

Being "the new face of Skechers" must be some sort of cosmic punishment for turning herself into Barbie #355097609874.

Meow.

God, she doesn`t even look like herself anymore since the nose-job and the hair extensions

Makes me think of a line from a Pink song: "all you have to change is everything you are".

Anyway, herself as a pityful imitation of her bimbo sister seems to help her career...

...at least she matches Sketchers better than Victorias Secret since Ashlee is as tacky & cheap like Sketchers.

Shouldn't it be "Ashlee Simpson: the new feet of Skechers"? Or has she gone and done something preposterous to her feet, as well, like had her little toes shaved off? Anyway, can't wait to see more of her feet! This thread is about Ashlee Simpson and feet, isn't it?

I see they're trying to bring a new level of class to Sketchers not seen since Christina Aguilera frisked her self in a cop outfit.

to be fair, she's had endorsements when she was normal, like the thermasilk one and one other...i forgot what. she does look like a totally different person now though, she's also starting to straddle the line between looking fabulous and looking like a drag queen...hope she doesnt go too far though her lips tell me otherwise!
