We can’t get over Melissa McCarthy’s incredible new look

by

Comedy blockbuster Spy had its New York premiere last night and all eyes were on Melissa McCarthy as she hit the red carpet.

The actress looked amazing in a dress of her own design beside co-star Rose Byrne, who also starred alongside her in Bridesmaids.

Melissa's ivory dress showed off her curves to perfection… as well as her noticeably slimmer figure.

​The comedy actress recently shed 50 lbs through a high-protein and low-carb diet and you could really see the amazing results as she strutted her stuff last night.

Speaking about her weight loss recently, the actress said she is wary of passing on body image issues to her daughters, five-year-old Vivian and two-year-old Georgette.

"Sometimes I wish I were just magically a size 6 and I never had to give [my weight] a single thought…[but] I don’t beat myself up about it—it wouldn’t help and I don’t want to pass that on to my girls," she explained in a recent interview with Good Housekeeping.

This dress is part of her new line, Melissa McCarthy seven7, which launches online in August of this year.

Through this brand Melissa says she is hoping to empower women as this is a clothing line that is not just plus size, but all sizes. The collection will begin with a casual sportswear line and will then expand to a more contemporary line in 2016.

Melissa, who previously stated that designers refused to dress her, will include sizes four to 28 in her new range.

In the June issue of More the actress said she hopes to change people's perception of beauty. "There is just this weird thing about how we perceive women in this country. I would love to be a part of breaking that down," she admitted.

Spy hits theatres this Friday.
