Rebel Wilson is one of our favourite people ever. No really, the Aussie actress, who first made her hilarious debut in Bridesmaids in 2011, has been steadily rising up the Hollywood ranks and now she’s a bonafide red carpet style queen.
In Bridesmaids, she played the memorable Brynn (who got a tattoo of a tequila worm when drunk, remember?) but she’s best known for her part in Pitch Perfect as the Barden Bella’s newest recruit, Fat Amy. And we’re about to hear her acca-amazing voice once again in the sequel, Pitch Perfect 2 (out Friday 15 May) alongside the lovely Anna Kendrick, which we are ridiculously excited about, obvs.
But while we love Fat Amy, we’ve noticed that Rebel’s stealing her limelight by rocking some seriously glamourous outfits on the Pitch Perfect 2 promotional tour: From bright block colour skirts to mermaid-esque sequin dresses (look out for her mermaid dancing in the film, FYI), Rebel always stands out and it’s something she’s rightly proud of.
“I’m all about confidence and attitude,” says the 29-year-old when asked about her outfits, ‘I just like being who I am. No pressure could change that.”
And while she likes both designer and high-street fashion, it’s more important to her that she becomes a fashionable role model for young women – which is why she decided to wear her own version of a Victoria’s Secret catwalk outfit to the MTV Movie Awards, complete with Angel wings and tassled bra. Hero alert!
“I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear,” she said recently, “and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren’t any women in Hollywood my size and age.”
“I take my responsibility seriously and I want to do everything I can to present a positive and intelligent image for women who should be proud of their spirit and energy. Hopefully that will overcome any negative perceptions about how women are expected to look.”
Well said Rebel, you’re officially our idol!
Look out for Rebel again in her next film, How To Be Single, alongside 50 Shades Of Grey star, Dakota Johnson, where we’ll hopefully see even more of her amazing red carpet looks.
