< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Every size is beautiful – never let anyone tell you differently.

Rebel Wilson, a beautiful, headstrong, go-getter and confident woman who gives a voice to all the normal body types in Hollywood. Wilson is insanely confident in her body and she has never tried to hide who she is.

She is someone who doesn’t conform to what society deems “appropriate.”

In 2015, Rebel Wilson launched an edgy new clothing line in partnership with Torrid, a plus-size, high-end clothing brand. Bringing style and fashion to the next level, Rebel expressed the frustration of all women who struggle to find clothing that fits their bodies. In an interview with People magazine, Wilson said, “I’m currently like a size 18, sometimes a 16 depending on how good I’ve been, so I’m kind of just a bit too big for most regular clothing.”

Even though she appears to be so confident in her body in public, she still struggles with her own self-esteem. She told Cosmopolitan that “Even though, yes, now I am in movies or whatever, I am still that [dorky] girl. People think you’re really confident because you’re an actress or whatever, but I’m like the worst.”

When she was re-casted for Pitch Perfect 2, she hired a personal trainer. She told Elle UK that “I’m not doing it to look great or whatever but to have the energy to do all that [producing and acting] work. People wouldn’t think it looking at me, but I can exercise!” Wilson has to stay physically fit in this type of fast pace, long-hour job. She also told Elle UK that “I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy.”

Wilson is the perfect example of a healthy woman, even though her body type doesn’t necessarily reflect our current societal “norms”. She defies the stigma that bigger sized women are unhealthy. She even said in an interview with Marie Claire that she considers her size as “being an advantage, whereas so many women see it as a disadvantage.”

See ladies? It doesn’t matter how much you weigh. It’s just a number. If you have the personality and drive to do something, go out and do it. Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. It all starts with learning to love yourself.

So, here are 15 of our favorite Rebel Wilson …

15 Wise Quotes From Fashion Icon Gloria Vanderbilt About Life, Love And How To Be Truly Happy

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

The fashion pioneer and household name’s life was certainly eventful.

Last month the fashion world lost an icon in Gloria Vanderbilt. Dying at the age of 95, she accomplished a lot during her long life. From acting to art to writing and of course her iconic work in fashion, Vanderbilt went on to become a household name in many industries.

Born on February 20, 1924 in Manhattan, she was the daughter of an equestrian millionaire. When her father died, Vanderbilt and her half-sister each were awarded $5 million ($70 million in today’s money). Gloria was still pretty young when the inheritance was paid out, so her mother took control of the trust fund and spent a lot of it for years.

Concerned that Gloria’s mother wasn’t fit to be in charge of her, Gloria’s aunt stepped in, setting off what became at the time one of the most controversial trials in history. Ultimately it was decided that Gloria would live with her aunt and the mother was forced to live on a drastically reduced amount of the trust fund.

Beyond her childhood, Vanderbilt went into acting in 1954, primarily starring in plays and even made Broadway in the show The Time of Your Life. She eventually made her way to television, however, most of her appearances were on talk shows such as The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and CBS Sunday Morning News.

In the 70s, Vanderbilt began to get into the fashion industry as a designer, putting her art skills to use and applying their designs to a new line of scarves. After joining the Murjani Corporation, Vanderbilt’s signature was sewn onto a new line of designer jeans which is what Vanderbilt would be remembered for. But it wasn’t long after that she left Murjani and made her own company, GV Ltd, where she made a variety of clothing and luxury products including dresses and liqueur.

Gloria Vanderbilt was a mother of four children: Leopold Stanislaus Stokowski, Christopher Stokowski, Carter Vanderbilt Cooper, and American journalist and CNN anchor, Anderson Cooper.

Through the years Gloria Vanderbilt did a lot with her life and with those experiences comes wisdom. So, here are some of the best Gloria Vanderbilt quotes from this fashion icon.

“To be happy–one must find one’s bliss” — Gloria Vanderbilt
