Jessica Simpson is on the cover of Elle magazine this month.
In the shot she is very naked and very pregnant.
Back in October – during our first week of shows – we noticed this strange trend:
Naked and pregnant women occupy the cover of magazines a lot.
Back then it was New York magazine and Ebony releasing covers featuring very pregnant and very nude women within weeks of each other.
At the time, we acknowledged it was a tribute to the 1991 Demi Moore Vanity Fair cover.
But it's a "tribute" that is getting seriously old.
The Demi cover was more than 20 years ago.
And since then, literally dozens and dozens of magazines have done the exact same cover.
I know that the magazines are *expecting* us to be shocked and appalled when a naked woman is on a magazine cover.
But at this point, we're not.
So what do you say – when it comes to magazine covers like this – let's all just take a pregnant pause.
What do you think about pregnant women on magazines? Does the cover of a magazine make you want to buy it? What other magazine trends have you noticed?
