Melissa McCarthy has got it going on: She's hilarious, she's cute, and she's incredibly talented. It really doesn't get any better than that!

This 45-year-old actress has recently taken the step towards a healthier lifestyle and as a result has dropped some pounds. Already a radiant woman, McCarthy walked down the red carpet during an event for shoe designer Brian Atwood in Los Angeles, donning a classic "little black dress" and looked as stunning as ever!

With her brunette locks curled and lips adorned with scarlet, McCarthy looked insanely sophisticated. The woman cleans up very nicely!

Melissa is the third highest paid actress in the world, banking $23 million last year, and is set to design her own clothing line for larger women.

In June of this year, McCarthy spoke with CBS This Morning and jokingly stated it was some good old sobbing that helped her lose weight.

“Just crying a lot. I’m crying off the pounds.”

Melissa has taken the year to make health a priority. The most important factor is mental health, as she's learned not to stress anymore.

"I feel amazing and I finally said, 'Oh, for God sakes, stop worrying about it' and it may be the best thing I've ever done."

McCarthy, you are such an inspiration. Seeing your transformation just reinforces my goals of getting stronger at the gym while mentally de-stressing. This only proves that if the great McCarthy can accomplish it, so can the rest of us.
