Rebel Wilson drew inspiration from Meghan Markle for the look she sported at the Super Bowl on the weekend.
Wilson, 40, looked stunning in a red cape gown, previously sported by the Duchess of Sussex a year ago. Designed by Safiyaa, the dress bears a steep price tag of $1620, which roughly converts to about £900.
Wilson wore the frock before Super Bowl Sunday, making her appearance in her Meghan inspired outfit for the NFL Honours on Feb. 6. Taking to her Instagram account, The Wedge actress showed off her stunning dress, captioning the photo, “Loving myself SICK in this dress!”

Her IG followers praised the stunning outfit, with one commenter calling her “the most beautiful person to walk this earth.” Another user wrote: “Wow! Way to wear the dress versus the dress wearing you!!”
“Stunning. Your transformation is so inspirational,” a third wrote. Last year, reports suggested that Wilson lost about 60-pounds, and the comedian described 2020 as her “health year”.
The Twitterverse was impressed by her awe-inspiring dress and her overall look as one Twitter user noted, “I am just amazed at her body transformation. She wore the same dress that the Duchess of Sussex wore almost a year ago.”
Meghan first wore the dress during last year’s Mountbatten Music Festival, which she attended along with her husband Prince Harry. The former Suits star paired the dress with matching red shoes and bag, Express reported.
Accompanied by Prince Harry, who also wore red, the Duchess of Sussex visited the Royal Albert Hall for the music event in Mar. 2020. Royal commentators claim Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton felt awkward by a joke Wilson made at the BAFTAs 2020.
Hosts of Royally Obsessed podcast Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie spoke about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attending last year’s Royal Albert Hall ceremony. “It is really great to be here at the Royal Andrew, no, Royal Harry, no sorry, Royal Philip…Royal Palace place,” Wilson said on stage.
“Whoa, brutal. Rebel Wilson taking the joke a little too far. They were definitely not laughing and were looking a little more awkward,” Bowie told listeners. “There’s definitely a contrast between the Andrew and Harry references. William loves Harry as a brother, but Andrew’s situation is much bigger,” she added.
Fiorito described it as an actual royal scandal, saying, it’s not just Harry leaving with his wife. So they were not feeling that one so very much. It’s just funny to see all the cutaway shots of them,” she added. Stay tuned here for the latest Royal Family news.
