Our girl Rebel Wilson took home the Rising Star award at the 2015 ELLE Style Awards at London’s Sky Gardens on Tuesday, February 24, and, let us tell you, her stardom isn’t the only thing that’s rising. The 29-year-old Australian joker showed us just how serious she is about her new-and-improved classier image in a red-and-pink colourblocked frock.
The Sydney-born actress, best known for her role as “Fat Amy” in genre-bending musical comedy Pitch Perfect, recently enlisted Cate Blanchett’s stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, in a bid to “class up” her image. If this wardrobe choice is anything to go by, we think the new style direction is working a treat.
Rebel wore a red fit-and-flare dress from size 14-24 retailer Eloquii, with a contrasting pink panel on the upper layer of the dress. Her softly curled blonde waves and black pointed-toe pumps worked in a feminine sophistication that we’re loving on Rebel. We wouldn’t have predicted it, but the polished look suits her!
Well done, Rebel. Onwards and upwards!
