Melissa McCarthy on the Cover of Elle Magazine

I was super excited to hear Melissa McCarthy is on the cover of the November 2013 issue of Elle magazine until I saw the cover. I mean don't get me wrong Melissa looks gorge BUT why is she all covered up in pounds of fabric?? Yes, its fall and fashion gets a little layered, but seriously?? They always cover up the big girls when they happen to allow one of us on a cover of a high fashion magazine. WTF??!!! Don't do us any favors by putting us curvy gals on your magazine covers only to cover us up. There are several other versions of the cover featuring other Hollywood darlings like Reese Witherspoon and they are half naked in body con attire. Its blatantly obvious they had no idea how to style someone over a size 4 on this shoot. I am deeply upset at this cover. Can the fashion and magazine industry please do better??!! Its not enough to include us if you're going to insult us.

For your reference here are the other covers:

What do you think about Melissa's cover? Am I being too sensitive or is it sooo obvious?
