Cosmopolitan Didn’t Hide Adele’s Body On The December Cover

So, this is kind of unexpected: Adele landed the December cover of Cosmopolitan and the magazine actually treated the full figured singer like a normal famous person. Which is to say, here’s Adele all cinched up in leopard print with a sultry eyebrow cocked. The obligatory windswept male fantasy hair is also present, along with a hint of cleavage.

But hey! Aren’t you shocked they didn’t do the standard super-tight portrait whenever anyone above a size 2 is involved? Like, you know… We’d call this progress, but we’re guessing Cosmo is still Cosmo on the inside.

    It still looks like they either made her head bigger or her body smaller. I refuse to believe that they didn’t slim her at all, since they do it for even the smallest of celebrities.

      Absolutely! She is not a size 8. She is at least 14+ which is still really cute. I don’t get why they have to make her look like a stick.

    …the magazine actually treated the full figured singer like a normal famous person.

    Which is to say, they photoshopped her to look about 10 sizes smaller.

      …Yes.

    did anyone else notice 9 / 10 of their issues discussed in the magazine are about sex?

    Sadly, the photoshopping is the first thing I noticed. Fantastic that they used her whole body; however, I question how much retouching said body underwent. She looks completely different on this cover than I’ve ever seen her (bodywise). I think she’s lovely and talented but either she dropped 50 lbs in less than a month or someone’s been playing around with computer programs. Either way, she’s a fabulous singer. I just don’t understand the “we use plus sized women but then photoshop them so they look less plus sized.” I say either go full out or don’t go at all.
