THE PITCH PERFECT ACTRESS DEBUTS A FASHION LINE FOR CURVY WOMEN THAT EMPHASIZES CONFIDENCE AND YOUTH.
Actress Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect) has launched her own plus-size fashion collection, called REBEL WILSON X ANGELS.
Pieces in the line for curvy women come in sizes 14-24 (1X-3X). Look for them at Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Lord & Taylor, and through Dia & Co. Retail prices are $49-$298 and include Wilson’s signature rose-pink bomber jacket with the word “Rebel” emblazoned on it ($109). The clothing also will be available online.
“I just feel like plus-size fashion is underserved and, since the average size of an American woman is 16 to 18, why aren’t there more brands, more options?” she asked at a summer launch party in New York.
The contemporary lifestyle collection includes lycra-infused denim pieces developed with new technology and a range of everyday necessities. “There’s not a lot out there that’s on the more youthful side,” Wilson says. “There’s a lot of ‘auntie dresses’ in plus-size. I like to present a very confident, youthful energy.”
Wilson, 37 and an Aussie by birth, reprises the role of Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect 3, which shot in Atlanta and is due in movie theaters Dec. 22. Her next project, the comedy Isn’t It Romantic, is filming now in New York and is due in theaters in February 2019. It revolves around a cynical woman who discovers she’s been trapped inside a romantic comedy.
