The pap-favourites of the moment are certainly a stellar lot. 

Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Angie and Brad, Kate Middleton, Cheryl Fernandez Versini, and – of course – the Kardashian-Jenner women.

They all command attention… and they certainly send waiting photographers into a frenzy whenever they're spotted in public.

What we hadn't considered until now, however, is that Jessica Simpson is such hot-property in the world of paparazzi swarms. 

Last night she hit Craig's, a swish steakhouse in fancy-pants West Hollywood, with her former professional athlete husband, Eric Johnson.

And suffice to say that when they left – via a back-door, natch – the dozens of waiting photogs went crazy.

Jessica, 35, is still under the spotlight following her controversial "drunk" Home Shopping Network appearance.

Indeed, dining at Craig's represented Ms Simpson's first foray into public since the incident.

Dressed casually in black – complete with Louboutin sandals – and carrying a €2,000 Saint Laurent tote, the singer and businesswoman came across as somewhat dazed and confused – the result, no doubt, of the mass of waiting cameras. 

However, at least her handsome husband was on hand to guide her to their waiting vehicle, subsequently allowing her to sit in the front seat alongside the driver.
