Melissa McCarthy knows how to do an awards night.

Just weeks after the actor snuck ham and cheese sandwiches into the Golden Globes, she confirmed her legendary status by wearing a tracksuit to the Oscars after-party.

Putting their own twist on red carpet glamour, the Best Actress nominee and her husband Ben Falcone attended the star-studded Vanity Fair party in matching Adidas tracksuits.

Pairing comfort with elegance, McCarthy accessorised her tracksuit with sneakers and a lavish amount of diamond jewellery.

“It’s not [less glamorous] to me guys, I’ve doubled my diamonds – I feel great,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

Wearing tracksuits was McCarthy’s idea: “I just thought because we were like, ‘Should we change?’ and I was like, ‘Ooh, I have an idea,'” she explained.

“But I will say that when I heard it I was like, ‘Oh God yes. 150% yes. Let’s do this,'” Falcone added.

McCarthy also said that despite Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper having undeniable chemistry, she thinks she and Falcone, who have been married for 14 years, have more.

And many fans have called the pair “couple goals” for sporting athleisure-wear to the party.

“Melissa is THE best,” one fan wrote on Twitter.

“I love them,” added another.

McCarthy had made waves earlier in the evening for her outfit to the main event: she wore a black-and-white pantsuit with a matching cape to the awards ceremony which took place at LA’s Dolby Theatre on Sunday.
