It’s A Girl! Jessica Simpson Strikes A Very Familiar (Naked) Pose For Elle

Well, it's not like we haven't seen this shot before. We know photographers can't trademark a pose or anything, but if you were modeling a new baby bump on the cover of a magazine, wouldn't you at least want to do it in an original manner? We're pretty sure we would (since the cover shoot offers are obvi rolling in), and that's why we feel unsure about the oh-so-obvious April Elle cover featuring a very pregnant Jessica Simpson. Are they trying to recreate the magic of the Demi Moore VF cover? Or more likely, with the windswept blonde hair, the Britney Spears Bazaar cover, inspired by the original?
Regardless, she beautifully bares all, and tells all, too! Apparently the Fashion Star mentor's body told her a bun was in the oven in a rather odd way: “We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge. Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?” We certainly hope she showed some restraint that day, because a baby gal is on the way! (Elle)

But let's get to the point here. Is this cover gorg or derivative? Or both?
