As celebrity covers go, Eva Mendes is a pretty good subject. Her covers are always good and her latest one for Marie Claire UK's July issue isn't an exception. On the cover she sports one of those embellished Dolce & Gabanna body suits that have been doing the rounds this season.
In the cover story, Mendes' boyfriend Ryan Gosling naturally pops up and so does body image. 'It doesn't matter what you have of what you look like. It's something everyone has to work at. I realize I have contributed to a certain happy, healthy, empowered image, but that's not all of me,' she said. 'I feel it's important to let women know that I have similar struggles. What I tell girls is what they don't like about themselves now, they will probably end up loving as an adult, because that's what happened to me.'
The only issue with the cover is that it's a reprint. While reprinting makes sense for the smaller editions of the big titles, it seems strange that such a big version of the title couldn't create an original cover.
