Melissa McCarthy likes to keep it simple and chic! That’s why she stood at the People’s Choice Awards in her lovely pair of pants.

The 45-year-old won the award for the best comedic movie actress and walked to the stage to accept it gracefully.

She paired her black sequin pants with a bell-sleeve and tunic-style blush blouse. She also wore a glossy blowout and hot pink lipstick.

“Holy smokes!” she said on 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 stylish mom had a great 2015 with her new 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 said. “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. I’m a mom with two kids — and I wear leather pants and cheetah-print and all kinds of crazy stuff.”
