Finally. A celebrity we can relate to.

Not to be intimidated by the likes of supermodel Kendall Jenner, who wore no pants, Oscar nominated actress Melissa McCarthy rocked up to the luxurious Vanity Fair Oscar Party in an Adidas tracksuit.

In a sea of sparkling designer gowns, the 48-year-old Best Actress nominee dressed for comfort in the brand’s signature black and white pin stripe tracky dacks.

And her ensemble gets even better.

In an ultimate display of “couple goals”, McCarthy was accompanied by her actor husband, Ben Falcone, who wore a matching tracksuit.

The pair, who famously starred in the comedy Bridesmaids together, also wore black sneakers as they strutted the red carpet hand-in-hand.

“It’s not (less glamorous) to me guys,” McCarthy told Entertainment Tonight before entering the party.

“I’ve doubled my diamonds. I feel great.”

It wasn’t her first style statement of the night.

McCarthy may have lost the Academy Award to Olivia Colman but she was one of the funniest presenters of the night, presenting the Costume Design award dressed as a rabbit-covered Queen Anne from The Favourite.

Presenting alongside Brian Tyree Henry, the pair spoofed the over-the-top period drama, wearing outlandish outfits and making sarcastic wise cracks.

“These artists create a pastiche of textiles with authenticity yet never distract from the story,” McCarthy said; the bunny on her hand clearly distracting.

“Costume designers construct the looks that ground a character to a particular time and place in the subtlest — subtlest of ways.”
