Rebel Wilson Joins The Red Carpet Dress Recycle Trend


Since her weight loss, Rebel Wilson hasn't taken her foot off our necks. If you think she looked amazing before, wait till you see her now! Rebel keeps wowing us on the Red Carpet, and she's done it again.

This time, the Hustle star hits the Australian Academy Awards (AACTA) in an embellished black mini dress. She finished the looks with black stilettos and her natural blonde hair. Scroll for pictures.

Christmas Party With Hugh Sheridan

Last month, Wilson first wore this bodycon dress to a Christmas party with her best friend Hugh Sheridan. The long-sleeved black mini gown had intricate embellishments from the V-line neck down the middle to the hem. It featured a big round zip which may (or may not) be an accessory. The friendly pair posted up (on Rebel's Insta story) underneath a Christmas tree where Sheridan gave Wilson a forehead peck – maybe we missed the mistletoe. The Australian actors then enjoyed an impromptu sing-along to Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.

The beauty of wearing a dress twice is that you can try out different combinations. Rebel styled her blonde hair in a side-swept breezy style for the first time. She's also accessorized with a black hand purse with a silver buckle. She had shimmery eye makeup and nude glossy lips with drop earrings for the awards. The lip gloss emphasized the Pitch Perfect star's wide smile we all know and love. This time, she had her hair which appeared longer in a center part.

Funny First Time Encounter With Russell Crowe

The 41-year-old Australian actress presented the first award of the night. During her presentation, she shared an anecdote of her first encounter with the night's host Oscar award winner Russell Crowe.

She says, "I have to tell you guys a story about the very first time that I met Russell. I was a young actor, I was like 19, and uhm, he was sitting there having dinner with Nicole Kidman at STC. I was like Oh My God, and I went up to them and I was really nervous, and he turned to me, and he looked me right in the eyes, and he just said 'F*ck off'."

The Funny Fat Girl

We only found out she was joking when she ended the story by saying, "Many years later, Nicole Kidman gave me a scholarship to go to America and study comedy." We'll admit that she got us in the first half - no wonder her team didn't want her to lose weight.

The Isn't It Romantic actress mentioned that her management team didn't buy her weight loss idea, and they felt the 41-year-old actress would lose gigs because she had a successful run as the "funny fat girl."
