Rebel Wilson dazzled in custom Givenchy at 2018 InStyle Awards on Monday night (22Oct18).
The comedy star led a parade of celebrities at the Getty Center in Los Angeles and stood out in a black lace Givenchy dress designed for her by artistic director Clare Waight Keller.
In a chat with People.com, the Pitch Perfect actress explained that her garment was particularly special because it is the first custom piece Clare has overseen since creating Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s wedding gown back in May.
“I think the last big couture piece that Clare Waight Keller did was Meghan Markle’s wedding dress,” the 38-year-old explained to the publication. “And now she’s making me a dress so that’s kind of amazing just in and of itself. But then factor in the fact that it’s Givenchy – an amazing Paris fashion house – I’m a bit shocked how it all happened but really grateful. I think it’s a really cool move that they’re being inclusive with someone like me.”
During the ceremony, Rebel took to the stage to present her stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who also works with Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Gal Gadot, Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain and Sandra Bullock, with the Stylist of the Year Award.
“Tonight I had the honour of presenting the Stylist of the Year Award to my brilliant stylist @elizabethstewart1 x even though she styles all the cool chicks like Julia, Cate, Gal, Viola, Jessica, Sandra…somehow this cool chick has time for me!” Rebel wrote alongside a photo of herself with Elizabeth at the bash. “Congrats Elizabeth, you deserve all the trophies! You’re so creative, talented, generous and kind!”
Other stars to get dressed up for the event included Storm Reid, who sported a black sequin Preen number, and Lea Michele, who opted for a David Koma slip dress.
Tracee Ellis Ross wore a Giambattista Valli Couture dress with Irene Neuwirth jewellery, Busy Philipps chose an Off-White ensemble and Miranda Kerr stepped out in a gold sequin Tom Ford minidress and black Chanel coat.
But style star Elizabeth and Oscar-winning actress Julia made a real sartorial statement by posing together in matching lilac Givenchy suits, Jacquie Aiche necklaces and Clergerie shoes.
Julia was presented with the Style Icon Award, Clare received Fashion Designer of the Year, Jeff Goldblum took home Man of Style, stylist Karla Welch was named Voice of Style and actress Constance Wu was awarded Badass Woman.
In addition, Jennifer Aniston’s hairstylist Chris McMillan was honoured with Hairstylist of the Year and James Kaliardos won Make-up Artist of the Year.
