Lifestyle magazine InStyle's May issue features American actor-comedian Amy Schumer on its cover.

The actor who is wearing a white Ralph Lauren swimsuit wrote: 'So proud to be on the cover of @instylemagazine!'

In the issue, 35 year-old Schumer talks about ageing, dealing with surgery and more.

'What's good about not being a model is that it's not the thing I trade on. Once I start looking older, that won't affect me. I have never gotten anything done because I'm, like, so gorgeous. I'm good-looking enough that I can work in the business. I get enough attention from men that I feel good. I see pictures of myself now, and I look younger than I think of myself. It hasn't scared me yet,' Schumer expressed in her interview to the magazine.

The bold cover has landed some criticism for the curvy actor.

One of magazine's followers and swimwear designers Dana Duggan wrote on Instagram: 'Come on now! You could not find anyone better for this cover? Not everyone should be in a swimsuit.'

Duggan went on to call the actor a 'pig' and defended the opinion as freedom of speech.

Liza Golden Bhojwani, an American model living in India, recently became the subject of inspiration on the Internet.

Reason? The once skinny model posted a picture of her curvy self, pictured right, alongside her former shape, left when she was on diet.

The model who has auditioned for fashion weeks in New York and London, wrote on Instagram: 'I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush...but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own.'

In yet another post, the model wrote: 'I have moved on from the obsession of fitting into the standard perfect model mould. And I have decided to make my own mould, my own shape, my own personal being.'

Way to go, Liza. Hope we see more like you on and off the runway.

Remember Melania Trump's official portrait of the First Lady? How critics zoomed into the picture and questioned her choice of flaunting her expensive wedding ring.

Well, turns out, FLOTUS has found support in designer Stefano Gabbana whose outfit she was wearing in the picture.

The Italian designer recently took to Instagram to express his support. 'BEAUTIFUL #melaniatrump Thank you US #madeinitaly. Thanks to all those who appreciate our work'

When one of his followers @_boyafraid wrote, 'So you have lost a follower, and worst, an admirer,' Gabbana wrote back: '@_boyafraid_ i don't care!! Really.'
