Is Rebel Wilson Victoria’s Secret’s Newest Angel?Is Rebel Wilson Victoria’s Secret’s newest angel? No, and we couldn’t be happier. The 29-year-old Australian actress took the stage at the MTV Movie Awards in an outfit that looked VS Angel ready, but was infinitely better because of it’s body positive message. The actress donned skin tight leather pants, a rhinestoned bra, and a pair of massive white angel wings to present the award for Best Male Performance.
After accidentally dropping the winner’s envelope on stage, Wilson bent down to reveal that the back of her pants were emblazoned with the word “THINK”, a play on Victoria’s Secrets “PINK” sweatpants. Wilson later explained her outfit choice saying, “I'd like to encourage other girls to think that way, which is why I put [the word "think"] on my butt. It's about what's up here [points to her head] and not what's here [points to her bottom].”
Following last week’s Lane Bryant campaign that also targeted the unrealistic beauty standards of Victoria’s Secret, Wilson’s commentary that, “sometimes girls will look at Victoria's Secret models and think they have to model themselves after that, but I really don't think that's the best. Even though they're called models, they're not the best people to model themselves after,” couldn’t ring truer.
Wilson later added that her ensemble was designed by a Dubai-based designer who has also created looks for Madonna and Lady Gaga––both of whom are also advocates of body positivity.
