Melissa McCarthy is looking and feeling festive this holiday season.

In her latest ad campaign for her clothing collection Melissa McCarthy Seven7, the actress can't help but brighten up for the camera while wearing a few of her own designs.

Whether modeling blouses, cropped denim or high-waisted skirts, the 45-year-old has no problem showing off her holiday collection with a few of her close friends.

"It's fitting it was a holiday shoot.  It felt like a party," photographer Brian Bowen Smith said in a statement to E! News. "Melissa was great and shocker funny. She has a very good handle on what she wants and how to achieve it."

He continued, "Her line is full of life and love. Like her. I was happy to be a part of it."

For those a little late to the party, McCarthy launched her line this past summer with sizes ranging from four to 28. It's a business that the Spy star hopes will appeal to women of all sizes.

"I just don't quite see the cut off," she explained to E! News' Marc Malkin during a visit to a Lane Byrant store in Los Angeles. "I don't believe in kind of sectioning and segregating people in anything."

"I think most women in the U.S. are a 14. I think like 72 percent of women are a 14," she continued. "So I think it's a little insane if you're in the business to tell your biggest section of clientele that you don't want their business."

If you're still surprised to hear that the comedian is finding great success with the fashion industry, we've learned that McCarthy has always had a passion for it.

"[Designing clothing is] always what I thought I would do," she told Vogue earlier this year. "I went into clothing and textiles in college and moved here with Brian Atwood. I was going to finish at FIT and he made me do stand-up on the second night."

You can find McCarthy's clothing line—with every item priced at under $150—available at Macy's, Lane Bryant, HSN and other retailers.
