LOS ANGELES, March 1 -- No matter where you are in the world, chances are, you know that Jessica Simpson is no stranger to the spotlight. Her hit pop and country songs, movies, television and eponymous collection of shoes, clothes, bags etc. have helped to keep her in America's eye, but we all know Jessica for more than just her career achievements. Jessica has been followed, studied and scrutinized since she released her first hit single at the age of 19. Now, Jessica turns the tables on our culture and cultures all over the world in her new original series on VH1, "Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty." The series is set to premiere on Monday, March 15 at 10PM ET/PT.*

In the new VH1 docu-series, produced by RDF USA ("Wife Swap", "Secret Millionaire"), Jessica travels to Japan, Thailand, France, Brazil, Uganda, Morocco, and India then back home to Los Angeles to meet every day women and some local pop culture icons. She examines the local fashions, dietary fads and beauty regimes and even participates in some extreme practices in order to reveal what constitutes beauty in these foreign cultures.

Viewers can catch a sneak peek of the season's first episode on VH1.com on Friday, March 12. Subsequent episodes will be available on VH1.com the morning after they air. Additional video content from "Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty" including extras from each episode will be available on VH1.com and on VH1 Mobile throughout the season.

VH1 has teamed up with Operation Smile, who are featured in several episodes of the series, to encourage consumers to share their smile to create a smile mosaic and raise money to give children all over the world the smile they deserve.

The mosaic will live online at VH1smile.com. People can also send a photo of their smile using their mobile phones using the code 80366. For every smile shared, $1 will be donated to Operation Smile by VH1 up to $10,000.
