Get The Look For Less: Rebel Wilson Dons A Cape At 2015 MTV Movie Awards
Rebel Wilson stepped out at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday in an unexpected cape dress with hot pink lining.
Wilson strutted her stuff on the carpet as she posed with her arms outstretched to reveal her bright pink cape. The surprising design of the black ensemble was a fitting fashion shock as the MTV Movie Awards is known for it’s more colorful and unique fashion events of the year. The Pitch Perfect star wore the dramatic garment with matching purple heels and loose sexy curls and minimal makeup.

Inside, Wilson made an even bolder statement as she came storming on stage in a Victoria Secret-inspired outfit with white angel wings and all, to present a clip from her upcoming movie. The star even had “think” printed on her backside of her black leggings as a metaphor to the trademark “Pink” line of the lingerie company. The actress said the stunt was a result of her protest to the typical size models used by big brands and major fashion designers. In the press room backstage, Wilson reportedly said, “I think one of the messages is that we are all beautiful and sometimes girls look at Victoria’s Secret models and think to model themselves after that. I really don’t think that is best.”

The bold move was one of the highlights of the evening and a way for Wilson to encourage other women of differing body types to be proud of their looks. Up next for the Australian star is the sequel to last summer’s movie blockbuster, Pitch Perfect 2, which will see the Barden Bellas battle international competition this time around. The movie is slated for release next month.
To try this modern look, but with a more polished feel, get this dress by Neiman Marcus. This dress features, a beige lining on both the cape and back of the dress, and has small slits on the shoulders for a little bit of sex appeal. The dress also comes with a belt at the waist to accentuate the smallest part of the body and add shape to the design. Pair it with these pink shoes for a pop of color and to stand out at any event.
