Elle Editors defend Melissa Mccarthy cover

rs_634x904-131010085134-634.Melissa-McCarthy-Elle.jl.101013 Elle magazine drew lots of attention for its portrayal of November cover girl Melissa McCarthy. The fashion magazine has been criticized for covering up the curvy actress, who is bundled up in a charcoal Marina Rinaldi coat.

The problem is that on alternate covers, Reese Witherspoon flaunts her figure in a fitted black dress, while Shailene Woodley is in a black swimsuit.

Responding to the backlash, editors at Elle released a statement that says: “On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is no different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover. We are thrilled to honor her as one of our Women in Hollywood this year.”

    If Melissa liked the look herself and felt comfortable in and agreed it to be posted on Elle cover what the heck others try to gossip about it? Everyone is happy with the result: Elle with a great cover of a Hollywood actress; and Melissa is happy with just the way it turned to be. Besides reasonable people dress and do make up the way to make their attractive features even more prominent and hide the flaws that we all have since nobody’s perfect. The coat was a great choice and Melissa looks very hot on this cover.
