'Elle Magazine' Under Fire For November Issue Cover

Posted: Updated:

"Elle Magazine" is coming under fire for the cover of their November issue.

Actress Melissa McCarthy is one of six stars on the cover of their annual "Women in Hollywood" issue. A lot of people are upset and disappointed that the magazine hid Melissa's curves under a huge coat.

For example, June Thomas of Slate Magazine writes, "Perhaps photographer Thomas Whiteside only knows how to photograph the usual stick insect models, because he clearly has no clue how to highlight McCarthy's curves."

Also, celebrity psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser said, "It's a disappointment the way they covered her up so much. It is sending the psychological message that hiding is what full-figured women should do."

"Elle" is defending the look saying that their stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in. They add that Melissa loved it. McCarthy has also appeared previously on magazine covers and her body wasn't even shown.

"More" magazine and The Hollywood Reporter are two examples. Watch the full Good Day discussion above.
