Rebel Wilson is famous for her ability to make anyone laugh until they cry, but it's not just her comedy skills that have gained her millions of fans — her rule-breaking sense of style has earned her scores of admirers too. Through her looks on the red carpet and in her street style, she regularly challenges dated Hollywood fashion rules for plus-size women

From wearing shimmering dresses in every color to rocking V-neck dresses with sheer elements, Wilson shows how curvy women don’t have to play it safe, onscreen or off. Here are 27 times Rebel Wilson didn’t care about “flattering” fashion rules:


Whoever said curvy girls shouldn't wear shimmer CLEARLY hadn't seen Wilson's stunning gold dress.

Casual Rebel doesn't shy away from statement pieces, like this bright red shirt and voluminous coat. 

Gingham is coming back, so I hope Wilson wears this skirt again!

When matching with the "Pitch Perfect" crew, she wore a striped shirt.

Plaid pants AND a cat T-shirt are the best way to break fashion rules.

With a new movie coming out this summer, I know that Wilson will continue to sport even more fierce and body-positive looks on the red carpet and off — and I can't wait!
