elle women in hollywood melissa mccarthy Melissa McCarthy, Lea Michele and more hit the red carpet at Elle Women in Hollywood partyElle magazine hosted some of the most talented actresses working in the business at its 20th annual Women in Hollywood party in Los Angeles on Monday (Oct. 21).

“Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy, who made waves for covering up in a winter coat on the cover of the 2013 issue, was joined at the fete by “Glee” gals Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke, “Cougar Town” star Busy Philipps, and more.

McCarthy opted for a black and white ensemble, and the rest of the attendees followed her lead — it was a very white-filled night, with a few black accents along the way.
“GoT” beauty Clarke went with a gauzy, off-white dress with a sweetheart neckline, while Rivera wore a white jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and Michele paired slicked-back hair with a strapless white and silver dress.
