Isn't it time to take a load off Heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson steps out in a pair of platform heels
Heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson isn't letting her pregnancy get in the way of her desirable fashion sense.
The 31-year-old singer stepped out in Beverly Hills, California, wearing a long dress with a pair of very high heels and showed no signs of slowing down despite preparing for the birth of her first child.
The former pop singer needed her assistant to carry their bags as she shopped at Saks Fifth Avenue for a few items before heading home.

Dressed in a long red dress the busty blonde celebrity wore a pair of brown peep-toe platform shoes as she strutted down the street.
The mother-to-be said last year that she has no intention of taking the weight off her feet and vowed to continue wearing high heeled shoes whenever she could.
She joked to Us Weekly: 'I'm probably going to deliver my baby in these [4-inch YSL heels].'

However, even with the dangerously high footwear, Jessica seemed comfortable as she continued handing her assistant her shopping bags.
Simpson is engaged to NFL player Eric Johnson and the pair are due to tie the knot later this year.
The couple are excited about welcoming their first child into the world, and are no doubt wondering when that exact day will be.

However, Simpson may feel less chirpy when she catches a glimpse of her former self when her new reality show Fashion Star hits screens next month.
The With You singer acts as a mentor on the NBC show alongside Nicole Richie and designer John Varvatos and certainly looks glamorous.
In an upcoming episode of the show, she is seen wearing a bright red dress, lots of jewellery and has clearly spent time in the hair and make-up chair.
The show is hosted by Elle Macpherson and gives contestants the chance to create their own fashion designs and then have top stores like H&M, Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue bid to buy their clothing lines and put them in the stores the next day.
