Biggest Magazine Cover Controversies Ever

Melissa McCarthy, Elle

Irate detractors called out Elle for its November 2013 issue "Women in Hollywood" cover featuring McCarthy, bundled up in an overcoat. McCarthy's cover attracted further criticism in comparison to the same issue's less covered-up, slimmer stars. Elle later released a statement defending the outfit selection. "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," the mag said.
