Rebel Wilson's new plus-size clothing line is going to change everything
Everyone's favorite plus-sized funny lady Rebel Wilson just announced she's launching a plus-size clothing line for the U.S. label Torrid. Can I get an aca-amazing?! Rebel, known for her hilarious antics and fabulous vocal stylings in the movie Pitch Perfect, will design the line in collaboration with her new stylist, Elizabeth Stewart.
Rebel has been killing it on the red carpet lately, so it's no surprise that's she's taking the plunge into fashion design. The 25-piece collection will appear in stores sometime in November of this year, and will be exclusively for women sizes 12-28. She's particularly excited to be bringing her own sense of style to the world of plus-size clothing.

Rebel told the Daily Mail, "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. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who are doing such a great job making plus-size fashion relevant and dope."
While the look of the actual line is still unknown, Rebel has said that it will have lots of her eccentric touches all over it. There will be microphones to reflect her love of singing and the stage, and koala T-shirts to pay homage to her Australian homeland.
The collection will also be priced super reasonably, with pieces ranging from $29 to $125. Torrid is thrilled to have a hilarious, body positive rockstar like Rebel on their team. CEO of Torrid Lisa Harper said she thinks Rebel will inspire girls everywhere to wear what they love without fear of judgment.
She's also been involved with every aspect of the design process. Liz Munoz, Torrid's SVP of Design told the Daily Mail, "Rebel's also got a natural instinct for design. She's been hands-on throughout the process and cares about every detail, down to the diamante rivet on the jeans." Obviously that's because she knows that kind of dedication is the only way you can crush it, whether it's a hilarious movie role, or a pair of jeans.
Rebel's own style got a serious boost from her new stylist, Elizabeth Stewart. While she totally had awesome fashion sense before, now that she's becoming a big star, she wanted to streamline her look a bit more for Hollywood premieres and such. Thus Stewart, one of Hollywood's top 25 stylists, stepped in and helped her up her fashion game, all while preserving the actress' signature fierceness. Her guidance will no doubt come in handy as Rebel puts the finishing touches on her new clothing line.
