People's Choice Awards 2016: Melissa McCarthy Shows Her Stylish Side in Sequin Pants!

01/07/2016 at 12:30 AM ET

Melissa McCarthy skipped the dramatic dresses most of her fellow red carpet goers wore at the People’s Choice Awards for a very chic pair of pants!

The Spy star, 45, picked up the award for best comedic movie actress at the PCAs and hit the stage in style to accept the award.

McCarthy wore figure-flattering black sequin pants and a bell-sleeve, tunic-style blush blouse for the occasion, teamed with a hot-pink lip and glossy blowout.

“Holy smokes!” she shouted as she took the stage. “Thank you so much! I considered taking my pants off just in solidarity, but I thought better of it. I respect you enough to keep my pants on.”

She added: “Every time you buy a ticket, every time you go to see a movie, every time you support it you allow me to live out a crazy dream. I always feel like I should pinch myself because I can’t believe that I can do it.”

The mom of two had a very stylish 2015, turning it out on red carpet after red carpet while simultaneously debuting her clothing line, Melissa McCarthy Seven7.

“I’ve been every size under the rainbow, and my sense of style never left me, but my options did,” McCarthy told PEOPLE. “I created a fashion line that is for all sizes.”

“You should be able to wake up and say, ‘I am wearing weird boots and leopard pants and a ripped-up T-shirt and a leather jacket and a big bow in my hair,'” says McCarthy, adding that she makes sure to always follow her own fashion advice. “I’m a mom with two kids — and I wear leather pants and cheetah-print and all kinds of crazy stuff.”

I love Melissa and she makes great movies, now it makes sense the sizes in stores and where they are!! Good way to make it easier after “walking in those shoes”. Thank you.

I’m sorry but that tent over sausage casings does not look good.

It;s terrible-totally unflattering.

Definitely not a flattering look for her, disappointing considering the stride she has made with her style….

It’s too bad she has made her clothing inaccessible for the average person, but they’re better off, because they’re just not figure flattering for the plus size person. Same old boxy tops, and 75+ just for a tank top and 100+ for a sweatshirt/dressy shirt? Looks like she randomly priced her clothing without any thought.

I love this look, but the top is too big. Otherwise, one of my favorites of all the styles she’s worn on the red carpet.
