Melissa McCarthy really doesn't know what the Elle all the fuss is about.
Elle was blasted by some critics for its November cover featuring The Heat star looking beautiful in a stunning Marina Rinaldi coat—a lovely image, but also a noticeable departure from the usual flash-as-much-skin-as-possible theme of many high-fashion mags.
But asked on the red carpet at the Elle Women in Hollywood gala tonight in L.A. if she expected all the fuss, she told E! News, "No, not at all!"
And guess what? She wanted to wear the coat!
