    I'm just stuck on the idea that somewhere, anywhere, there is a brain-dead bitch who thinks a size EIGHT is FAT. Seriously, fuck off.

    Amy's looks odd... why would they choose a photo with her hair covering most of her face and almost drunk-looking smirk?
    I just thought that was the way Amy naturally smiled.

    Maybe it's just the angle of the picture in addition to her hair covering her face? I can't really pinpoint why that cover looks odd to me...
    I think she's a beautiful woman, I'm just not a fan of that specific cover photo...

    Here is her Entertainment Weekly cover and editorial photo compared to Elle's cover...
    I think her smile looks cute in the Entertainment Weekly, but the angle/styling of the Elle cover is just odd/not flattering...
    I don't know, its probably just me and my weird opinion

    If i were Mindy I'd be more ducked off that they photoshopped 4 stone off my face...
    her face is a completely different shape.

    The Poehler cover pose seems a little Helmut Newtonish (with the exception of the smile), but I like it.

    Miu Miu needs to bring out a line of muu-muus for their fat celebrity clients.

    I think she looks nice and I'm not usually a fan of her style.

    Oh man, that's just mean. Is it truly about her, though?

    The clothes don't look tight. The shorts don't hang down to her knees. Exactly who was it made for if it wasn't made for someone Kaling's size?

    I wonder if Mindy will even dignify this with a response. Miu Miu designs are nowhere near good enough for this type of snobbery, and I hope there is a huge backlash. Also, they didn't have a problem shouting it from the rooftops a few years ago when Mary-Kate and Ashley were wearing their shit all the time, despite them being 5'0" and obviously not "the body type they design for."

    I checked out their site. They hated the outfit on her, so I can totally buy that the tweet was about her. The only other candidate would be Octavia Spencer and they didn't name the designer of her dress.
