Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy and Shailene Woodley cover Elle November 2013

Usually, when magazines shoot four women for one cover issue, the images are relatively similar. Whether it's style or overall look, the covers seem to tell a story from start to finish. However, Elle took a different direction for November 2013 with Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz, Melissa McCarthy and Shailene Woodley. All four of these women are being honoured by Elle this month as women of Hollywood who have "made extraordinary contributions" to the industry. While all four are big wigs in Hollywood, that seems to be their only commonality as far as these covers are concerned. Each and every one could have held their own as a single cover for the magazine. From Reese Witherspoon's little black dress to Melissa McCarthy's oversized luxe coat, these covers are style personified. Enjoy!
