UPDATE: She is rocking a tight Leopard print Dolce and Gabbana leopard print dress and I love it.I love that Cosmo stepped up and put Adele on their cover for the newest issue, not only is she worthy and so talented but they opted to use a full body picture, without making the cosmos issue even relating to body image. Instead they let the cover speak for itself and let the reader look forward to an intimate interview with Adele. Adele is curvy and plus,she is a 16 which is the average dress size in the UK.
Not only does she have a beautiful face but her body is amazing. Having her full figure on the cover will be inspiring for women in the UK as well as in the US and, it for sure has inspired me to know there is a place for us all in this society. Its baby steps like this that will move the notions in the media that women come in all shapes and sizes. Vogue two months ago featured Adele on the cover, they had opted to crop Adele's body and only use her face, despite what they did, it was one of their best selling issues. I do not think Cosmo is using it as a marketing tactic or even to really make a statement of bravery for the media. If you saw this photograph how could this not make the cover,she looks amazing.You never know with industry though. Share your thoughts with me. What is your take on this move by Cosmopolitan? Let me know and be sure to pick up a copy of the Decemeber Issue of Cosmo.
