Melissa McCarthy received praise for her weight loss and slimmer looks as the actress made the rounds to promote her comedy "Spy" which opened in New York City.
McCarthy, who launched her own clothing line Melissa McCarthy Seven7 in August, showed off a dress from the collection at the premiere of the movie, according to People magazine
"I just don't believe in a uniform," McCarthy, 44, told People at the premiere. "I think if people have it and they love it, great, but I think people get into a rut and I've always been someone who gets a kick out of dressing."
Life & Style magazine reported
in March that McCarthy lost 50 pounds by the March premiere of "Spy" at the SXSW film and music festival in Austin, Texas, and called her red carpet appearance there "radiant."
McCarthy told People her personal style can be called "classic things that can morph. I like vintage, I can never pick one style. I like a little blouse that looks great with a pencil skirt but then the next day I can wear it with ripped jeans and boots."
McCarthy was on the "CBS This Morning"
on Wednesday and said a reset of her mental thoughts on weight loss helped her.
"I truly stopped worrying about it," said McCarthy. "I stopped over analyzing, over thinking, over doing it. I just kind of went back to when I was pregnant and stopped constantly being worried about it. And I think there's something to not being so never and rigid about it. … I could have figured that out before 44."
Maeve McDermott of the USA Today
blog "Entertain This," praised McCarthy for breaking barriers for actresses who are not the Hollywood norms.
"McCarthy's been on fire lately with her red carpet looks — we loved her suit at the People's Choice Awards too," said McDermott. "Let's just take a moment to appreciate the gem that is Melissa McCarthy. How lucky are we to have an actress who’s the face of multimillion-dollar comedies, who's unafraid to call Hollywood out on its unfair gender norms, and who looks a little more like the average American woman than other sample-sized starlets."
