Melissa McCarthy graces the cover of Elle magazine this month as part of the magazine’s Women in Hollywood cover series.

When McCarthy’s cover debuted last week, critics pointed out that the other November cover girls, like Penelope Cruz and Reese Witherspoon, were all shown wearing body-conscious outfits that flashed some skin. McCarthy, however, is dressed in a coat “so huge,” wrote Slate, “that she could hide her Mike and Molly co-star Billy Gardel underneath.”

Elle1Elle has responded to the critics, defending its styling choices with the following statement:

“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.”

What do you think? Should the magazine have shown more of McCarthy’s curvy figure?
