Jessica Simpson: master chef?

Late Wednesday, the singer Tweeted, "Watching Julie&Julia at my house. Meryl Streep is genius!!" Simpson was obviously inspired by the film noted, about the late celebrity chef Julia Child (Streep). That same day, she hit a Beverly Hills Williams Sonoma for some kitchen tools of her own.

The real surprise of the day wasn't her newfound hobby but her shopping ensemble: no makeup, pink shorts . . . and, referencing her ex-boyfriend Tony Romo, a Dallas Cowboys hooded sweatshirt. Romo, a quarterback for the Cowboys, dumped Simpson the day before her 29th birthday this past July.

The super-dressed-down star and her assistant left with several boxes of wine glasses, some kitchen tiles and a vegetable slicer.

Bon appetit!
