Ricki Lake continued to confidently show off her slimmed down figure while attending the 74th ACE Eddie Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The Hairspray actress, 55, who recently revealed her incredible 30-pound weight loss transformation in just four months, also reunited with her Cry-Baby co-star Mink Stole as well as director John Waters at the event.

She also denied taking Ozempic late last month and said she and her husband, Ross Burningham, lost weight “without relying on a pharmaceutical product.” (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

Ricki added that neither of us were “pre-diabetic,” but “we felt like we wanted to at least try to do it on our own.”

As she posed for photos upon arriving at UCLA’s Royce Hall, the star flaunted her toned figure in a chic ensemble.

Lake donned a sheer black top that was tucked into the waistband of a leather miniskirt that ended a few inches above her knees.

Ricki, who was a presenter during the festivities, completed her overall look by slipping on a pair of knee-high black heeled boots.

Her short locks were parted to the side and fell in light waves until almost touching the tips of her shoulders.

Lake’s makeup was glamorous, consisting of a coat of mascara on her lashes and a smoky shadow around her eyes.

A light pink blush was added to her cheekbones to give her a radiant glow, while a shimmery nude tint was used on her lips for a finishing touch.

She completed her outfit with a pair of delicate earrings, as well as a sparkling bracelet placed on her left wrist.

While on the red carpet, Ricky crossed paths with fellow actress Mink Stole, who was also dressed for the occasion.

The couple starred together in previous projects, including Hairspray (1988) and Cry-Baby (1990). John Waters, who directed both, was also present and paused for a memorable photo with Lake.

The filmmaker received the ACE Golden Eddie Award, which “recognizes an artist for distinguished achievement in film,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Later during the ceremony, Ricki and Mink were seen talking together on stage while helping present one of the awards.

The annual event notably helps recognize “the best in film and television editing,” according to the official website.

Some of Sunday’s big honors went to Oppenheimer for Best Edited Feature (Drama, Theater), as well as The Holdovers for Best Edited Feature (Comedy, Theater).

Ricki’s appearance comes shortly after she recently revealed her 30-pound weight loss that occurred over a four-month span starting in October 2023.

Late last February, she took to her main Instagram page to share before and after snaps from her weight loss journey with her husband, Ross Burningham.

He also wrote to his followers: ‘Hello friends. I wanted to share with you what I have been doing these last 4 months. On October 26, 2023 I made a commitment to myself to be healthier.’

‘My husband, Ross, joined me in this effort. Together we have lost over 30 pounds. I really want to share it, because we did this without relying on a pharmaceutical product. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)

The actress added: “But neither of us were pre-diabetic and we both felt like we wanted to at least try to do it on our own.”

“Being 55 years old and in perimenopause, I was a little worried that my body wouldn’t lose the pounds like it had in the past.”

Stole and Lake starred together in previous projects, including Hairspray (1988) and Cry-Baby (1990). John Waters, who directed both, was also present and paused for a memorable photo with Ricki.

She also gushed: ‘I’m so proud of us. I feel incredible. I feel strong. I’ll go into more detail in another post about exactly what I did, but suffice it to say, this is the healthiest way I’ve lost weight in all my years.’

In the post, Ricky included a snap with Ross on their ‘daily walk’, as well as some previous snaps. He also flaunted his slimmer figure in a black sports bra and black leggings to better show off his progress.
