We just don’t get it.
Melissa McCarthy attends the premiere of ‘The Heat’ in New York City.
Don’t get us wrong; we absolutely get that it’s difficult for Melissa to find designer, red-carpet-ready outfits that suit and flatter her. We’re not pretending like she can just wave her hand and have her choice of instantly wearable dresses dropped at her feet. But we don’t understand how those difficulties necessarily result in a track suit with a … we don’t even know what that is wrapped around her waist.
Far be it for us to be all, “Hey, get it together, Melissa McCarthy! GOD. What’s your damage, Heather?” But we don’t know… we don’t exactly live on a magical island of size twos. We see women and men of size who manage to actually get dressed in appropriate clothing pretty much every day. There are some decent ideas here – like the ideas of separates and pants for her – but it all looks way too casual and that waist valance is not helping.
A cute blouse and a pair of straight-leg pants, with some kickass shoes and chunky jewelry. Add color liberally and get your hair and face did. That should do you every time, Melissa. You’re overthinking this.
