Elle magazine was amidst a controversy when the November issue was released with actress Melissa McCarthy on the cover wearing an oversized coat. The option of an oversized coat has stirred criticism from Fashion experts for choosing a piece of clothing that covers the full-figured star.
McCarthy didn’t seem bothered by the controversy, stating “It was kind of amazing.”
A spokesperson from Elle defended the cover in the following statement, “On all of our shoots, our stylists work with the stars to choose pieces they feel good in, and this is not different: Melissa loved this look, and is gorgeous on our cover.”
