Melissa McCarthy arrived at an Oscars afterparty in a comfy Adidas tracksuit, and #goals
And the award for most variety in fashion choices at the 2019 Oscars goes to…Melissa McCarthy. After wearing several head-turning ensembles during February 24th’s ceremony in Los Angeles, McCarthy—who was up for the Best Actress award for her dramatic turn in Can You Ever Forgive Me?—dressed down in a relatable way, opting for a simple Adidas tracksuit. Smiling as she posed for photos at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Beverly Hills, California, the actress sported matching sneakers to complete the casual look.
McCarthy kept some glam going with her hair and makeup still perfectly coiffed after the evening’s events. Her sparkling rings, bracelets, earrings and necklace also remained. Her husband Ben Falcone changed into a matching tracksuit, too, because #couplegoals.
The casual quick-change came after McCarthy went all out while presenting the award for Best Costume Design alongside fellow nominee Brian Tyree Henry, keeping a straight face the entire time as she walked out on stage in an outfit that—in a nod to nominated film The Favourite—any animal-loving queen would envy. Topped off with a wide-brim white hat, McCarthy wore an over-the-top multicolored dress with pants underneath and white boots, boasting a frilly royal-style collar around her neck.
The crowning details? Dozens of plush bunnies (which feature prominently in The Favourite) covered her entire look, from the front of her ensemble all the way down her long fur train. She even used one of the stuffed animals as a puppet, making it “talk” as she discussed the importance of recognizing costume designers and their “subtlest” work. Henry gave McCarthy a run for her money in his own courtly attire, wearing a tablecloth-like skirt, blue cape, pearls and a polka-dot bow tie and gloves as they presented the Oscar to Ruth E. Carter for her work on Black Panther—a historical moment that saw Carter become the first black woman to win the award.
Earlier in the evening, McCarthy wowed on the red carpet alongside husband Falcone, rocking a chic black-and-white pantsuit.
The 91st Academy Awards were broadcast live from Los Angeles on Sunday, February 24th.
