What do you think of the latest Cosmopolitan UK cover?
This is the Cosmopolitan UK cover that has some people up in arms over the magazine's decision to feature plus-size model Tess Holliday as its cover-girl.
British TV Piers Morgan said has labelled the move as 'dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models.'
However, others say it's refreshing to see 'real' bodies represented in the media.

We need to understand that fat people loving themselves don't promote obesity and that they deserve to exist without any hatred.Lesego Legobane AKA Thickleeyonce
It's very cruel when the next person looks at you and judges you from a physical attribute perspective, because there is more to me than my fat body.Lesego Legobane AKA Thickleeyonce
26-year-old plus-size model Tess Holiday is on the front cover of the Cosmopolitan magazine. The magazine hopes the image will inspire readers to be confident about their body. What do you think? pic.twitter.com/XUwiJ9Mpc6— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) September 3, 2018
My thoughts on Tess Holliday’s Cosmopolitan cover and how we’ve got to stop pretending that our bullying, nasty, abusive tweets are okay because we CARE about her health and the health of others.— Em Clarkson (@EmilyClarkson) September 3, 2018
If health is the concern, how would fat shaming help? https://t.co/yRyxWfyscb
I don't care how unpopular this opinion is, I think #TessHolliday is beautiful and I respect #Cosmopolitan for putting a pic of her on their cover. Enough of this size 0 model bs, some women can't help if they're bigger and I think it's great if it helps them love their body.— Ashley Willmott (@willmott2k10) August 30, 2018
#Cosmopolitan in the press for "glorifying obesity". I don't see a problem. This is a woman confident in who she is.— Russ Howe PTI (@RussHowePTI) September 3, 2018
You can't flip flop between 'stop pressuring women to look perfect' and 'she's fat, get her off the cover'..
