Melissa McCarthy brought her upbeat style to New York for an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
For the occasion, the Emmy-winning actress stepped out of her hotel in a white shirt dress. The long-sleeved number featured a long skirt and pointed pointed collar. The piece was attached to a white leather Valentino belt, which included a shiny gold “V” buckle. McCarthy’s look was complete with a top-handle clutch covered in glittery rainbow stripes.
McCarthy’s belt was complemented by an array of sparkling gold jewelry, including an open-link necklace, rings, layered bracelets and intricate earrings.
In her interview with Fallon, McCarthy discussed in more detail the rumors of her appearing in the new Marvel movie “Thor: Love and Thunder,” as well as her background in improv and her passion for home improvement projects. You can watch his full interview on YouTube now:
For footwear, McCarthy donned a set of luxe blue mules by Aquazzura. Her $950 “Yes Darling” style featured deep criss-cross blue satin straps, as well as metallic silver 3.75-inch heels. The stiletto heel of each ensemble was complemented by a rounded base covered in crystals, instantly reminiscent of disco balls.
Mules like McCarthy’s are hot due to their luxurious silhouette and ease of slipping on and off. Styles with colorful straps and glittering heels have grown in popularity thanks to their sleek glamour, as seen in new pairs from Larroude, Schutz and Jimmy Choo. Besides the ‘Mike and Molly’ star, celebrities like Bella Hadid, Chrissy Teigen and Elle Fanning have donned Blumarine, Gianvito Rossi and Stuart Weitzman mules in recent weeks.
When it comes to fashion, McCarthy is known for her love of bold shoes on the red carpet. In fact, she’s worn Brian Atwood heels often over the years, as the duo have been friends since high school. However, she has also been spotted in numerous strappy sandals, platform heels and pumps from top brands such as Tabitha Simmons, Saint Laurent and Proenza Schouler. Outside of shoes, McCarthy previously launched her Melissa McCarthy Seven7 collection of wardrobe basics in 2015.
