Jessica Simpson's recent NYC ensemble had a few issues.

The singer, actress and designer, who spent much of the past two years with buns in her oven, stepped out in a black and red floral Carolina Herrera dress in NYC last night (Dec. 3). Kudos to the style maven for shedding the baby weight from her second child, son Ace, born in the summer, rather quickly.

But the presentation was not flawless.

Simpson, 33, was attending the 27th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards, and she was certainly busting out of the top of her dress. We love the Casadei pumps and the fitted frock, but it was a bit too tight. She looked overly top heavy, like the dress didn't quite fit; at least above the waist, it didn't.

Her boobies are squished -- that cannot be comfy.

But that's not all. Simpson also appeared to have some sort of sporadic red rash on her décolletage. It could be an allergic reaction – perhaps to a perfume, since it's localized and not on other parts of her body? Or maybe the chilly NYC air gave her a pinkish, if splotchy, glow? Maybe she has rosacea? Or maybe she broke out in hives? We dunno but we hope she is okay.

Simpson's glossy pink lips also appear to be a bit plump, artificially so. She has owned up to having lip injections before. Maybe she revisited the process?

Yes, she's still gorgeous, despite some problems with this presentation.
