What would any year be without some controversial fashion magazine covers? Lucky's December cover, featuring Kerry Washington, was met with criticism that the magazine made her unrecognizable. Its editor in chief Eva Chen, who posted a picture of the photo to Instagram, told WWD: "Anything on social media is up for debate. Conversation is a good thing." Meanwhile, some accused Elle of intentionally covering up Melissa McCarthy's plus-size figure on its December cover. But McCarthy quickly put that rumor to rest when she told E!: "What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat . . . I was like, 'Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!'"
