As we noted once before, when we featured set and costume images for this film, Melissa McCarthy looks surprisingly great in late ’70s styles:
Everything from the big hair, to the skinny belt, to the wide-legged pants, to the chunky shoes just … works for her. Costume-wise, she appears to be working a slightly downscale version of this style, but we have no doubt she could scale this exact style up for red carpet and promotional appearances, big hair and all.
On a purely nitpicky level, some of those kids are dressed for 1978 (plaid pants) and some of them are dressed for 1972 (knee-hi socks). And if you know anything about the styles of the seventies, you’d know that there’s a fairly wide gulf between the beginning of the decade and the end of it.
