Rebel Wilson is best known as the hilarious star of the Pitch Perfect movies, but she recently added another credit to her name: fashion designer. The Australian comedian and actress, who this fall unveiled her capsule collection of edgy plus-size clothing for the retail chain Torrid, spoke to The New York Times about her fashion “Rebelution.” Brinson+Banks photographed her at Milk Studios in Los Angeles for the story, which appeared on the front page of the “Styles” section with a portrait of Wilson appearing to be photographed by eager camera-phone-wielding fans.
“Just as I was doing my final light test, Rebel’s hair and makeup team were taking some phone photos of her, and I stepped back and actually liked the idea of them surrounding her with their phones,” explains Kendrick Brinson. “So I asked more people in her team to stand around her with their phones, and that was the image that was published on the front of the section.”
“Rebel was really easy to photograph,” Kendrick continues. “Beautiful and game to try out all my ideas.”
