Is that you, Melissa McCarthy?!

In the newly released trailer for her upcoming film, The Boss, it’s clear the 45-year-old actress is looking red hot in her new role—and totally unrecognizable!

For the highly-anticipated comedy, the Gilmore Girls star swapped out her signature brunette strands for a red cropped pixie cut to portray Michelle Darnell, a wealthy businesswoman who goes bankrupt.

“She is exactly the kind of woman I have always obsessed over with perfect nails that you know smells of an expensive perfume,” she continued. “The clothing and the whole attitude of this woman is like—it’s the exact woman I would follow around a mall for the day.”

The flick—in which Melissa costars with other hysterical actors including Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage and Kathy Bates—is scheduled to hit theaters in April 2016.
