Melissa McCarthy Wears Jon Stewart's Face While Talking to Jon Stewart

Melissa McCarthy

So. Much. Stewart.

Melissa McCarthy — actress, comedian and unapologetically enthusiastic Jon Stewart fan — appeared on The Daily Show Wednesday evening wearing a very special dress. The floor-length frock, which featured an empire waist and bell sleeves, had one unique element: It was completely covered with images of Stewart's face.

"It's my Jon Stewart dress," said McCarthy as she stepped out to greet the host in her custom gown. After recovering from his initial shock at seeing his "unphotogenic" face up close and personal, Stewart replied: "You know, I've always wanted to say this to you: I am all over you like a cheap suit."

The actress, who will debut her Seven7 clothing collection later this year, has yet to disclose whether the Stewart "kimono" will appear in the collection — but we're holding out hope.

Between McCarthy's Jon Stewart dress and Tina Fey's disrobing during an appearance on Late Show With David Letterman, there seems to be a new trend of paying homage to departing talk show hosts in rather, um, unconventional ways. But hey, we're not complaining.
