One of these things is not like the other.

Elle has released four covers for the February “Women in Television” issue, including Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler, New Girl‘s Zooey Deschanel, and Girls‘ Allison Williams in full-body shots. However, it is Mindy Kaling’s cover that is stirring some controversy because it only features a close-up of her face.

Though still a beautiful shot, some are now comparing the cover to Melissa McCarthy’s coat cover back in October. A similar incident also happened with the magazine’s 25th anniversary issue back in 2010 when Gabourey Sidibe, Megan Fox, Lauren Conrad, and Amanda Seyfried appeared on separate covers. Fox, Conrad, and Seyfried were featured in full-length photos, but Sidibe’s image was framed as a head-and-shoulders shot.

Kaling took to Twitter to respond and promote her full body of work at the same time.

Clearly, Kaling doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal, but what do you think? Check out all four covers below and decide for yourself.
