The New Melissa McCarthy
Take a look at the star of Bridesmaids! Melissa McCarthy looks like a brand new lady in her Seven 7 Holiday Campaign. In one of her holiday themed ads you can definitely notice her jaw-dropping 50 lbs weight loss. The ads also show off a number of her favorite winter season looks!
The photo scene above was taken by photographer Brian Bowen Smith, and reveals the beautiful 45-year-old showing off one of her favorite pieces. Apparently, Melissa has always had a deep passion for fashion, dating back to when she was in high school. During her early years she often dabbled in various fashion styles ranging from preppy to punk styles.
While speaking on her new collection, Melissa McCarthy stated, “People don’t stop at size 12. It’s an odd thing that you can’t go shopping with your friends because your store is upstairs hidden by the tire section”. Her mission is to show that women everywhere can look beautiful, and to reinforce this notion she said, “here is just this weird thing about how we perceive women in this country. I would love to be a part of breaking that down.”
Currently, the hilarious actress’ collection can be purchased at various retail locations including Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Bloomingdales. The collection also has a wide range of sizes going from 4-28. She had this to say prior to the collection’s launch, “It’s pretty consuming…my problem is, I don’t hand things off very well. I just figure if it has my name on it and I want to make people feel good about wearing it, I can’t pass it off.”
You Go Girl!
