Get Stuff We Love
Funny girl and actress Rebel Wilson is adding a new profession to her growing resume: fashion designer.
The 35-year-old might be known for brightening our mood with her comedy, but now she's helping women around the world look and feel their best with a capsule collection she's created with plus-size fashion retailer Torrid.
“I’m a creative person. I create characters, scripts, jokes, music… so I thought, why not clothes?” said Wilson in a press release.

Wilson, a plus-size woman herself, knows the frustration many women face in not being able to find chic, affordable designs that also help make them feel gorgeous.
"I've never really felt like there's a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable," said Wilson in the statement. "It's really only been in the last few years that I've seen companies try."
As of now, Wilson's collection is just for the holiday season, but a spring line for next year is currently in the works.
"I've been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection," said Wilson. "I've been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can't wait for the collection to launch!"
The collection is said to include lots of Wilson's personal touches. For example, T-shirts include her signature as well as koala bears — an icon of her native country Australia. With 25 items that range from $22.50 to $98, Wilson's designs give a sophisticated and elegant spin to casual wear. Her pieces can get you through the weekend, the work week and even a night out.
