Picture perfect! Drew Barrymore looked photoshoot ready at the launch of her Shutterfly collection in New York City on Thursday, November 3. See her look and much more in today’s Red Carpet Daily, presented by DirecTV.

To celebrate her Designed by Drew Barrymore home decor line, Barrymore, 41, looked ready for the holidays in a long-sleeved little black dress with a lace-inset neckline, paired with black platform sandals. The Flower Beauty entrepreneur wore her blonde hair center-parted, and added a pop of color with bright pink lipstick. But at the event, Barrymore didn't just show off her marvelous midi LBD. She also revealed that she's lost 20 pounds!

"I was 144 and now I'm 124. I did it on the filming of a Netflix show [Santa Clarita Diet],” she says. "I feel really great. I followed Kimberly Snyder’s methods, but I added some protein like fish and chicken since she's all vegetarian or vegan. I've been very disciplined and all I did was cry and dream about pizza. I still am dreaming and crying about pizza.”

But that doesn’t mean she won’t treat herself during the most indulgent season of the year. “The holidays are coming up, so I'm going to enjoy some of that stuffing!" she ensures.

Barrymore, who’s rereleasing her 2004 documentary, Choose or Lose Presents: The Best Place to Start, also gave Us a few beauty secrets as well. She credits her radiant skin to drinking 64 ounces water a day, as well as hydrating and tightening Korean face masks.

“I honestly have everything, I just took a trip there and came back with moving boxes full of masks and I've been studying them,” Barrymore, who’s the mom of Olive and Frankie, continues. “I don't do anything invasive on my face, so this is the most exciting thing that's happened to a mom like me. I was feeling 42 and tired and I need something and the Korean masks have actually changed my life.”
