Comedy queen Melissa McCarthy was nominated for her second Golden Globe this year (and her first in a dramatic film), for her leading role in Can You Ever Forgive Me? She didn't win, (Glenn Close ended up with the trophy), but we still need to talk about McCarthy wore on the red carpet, because it proved that she is truly a star.

In 2016, when she was nominated for Spy, the mother of two glimmered in a metallic gunmetal blue Kimono-style gown that she designed herself. To add to the ‘70s vibe, McCarthy wore her deep brown locks parted down the middle in loose curls cascading down each shoulder.

This year, the actress arrived at the Beverly Hilton in an actual star-studded gown. McCarthy wor a bright purple Reem Acra dress (via 11 Honoré) with a matching sash and silver star-shaped embellishments trailing down the bodice. She completed the look by wearing her hair loose curls at her shoulders and a coral lip.

She may not have scored a Golden Globe at the show last night, but with a look like this, she won either way.
