Rebel Wilson turned heads when she stepped out in New York on Thursday night.
The Aussie actress, who has lost over 35kg (77lbs or 5.5) in the past 18 months, looked absolutely stunning in an incredibly chic pink dress.
The 42-year-old showed off her slender midsection as she cinched the dress at the waist with a matching candy-colored Valentino belt.

She added another pop of color with her yellow Louis Vuitton handbag and upped her height with beige pointed toe stilettos.
Rebel wore her golden locks in a chic half-up, half-down style, and she matched her makeup to her dress by wearing a pinkish palette.
The sighting comes after Rebel denied losing weight using the Mayr Method diet.

Rebel’s weight loss has been widely attributed to strategies developed by Austrian physician Dr. Franz Xaver Mayr.
However, she distanced herself from the Mayr Method in a statement on Instagram last month, telling her 10.6 million followers, “It was never my diet.”
The Mayr Method eliminates certain foods, reduces sugar, and also encourages certain dietary practices such as chewing food well.
People magazine was the first publication to report that Rebel had lost weight with the Mayr method, citing a “source” close to the actress.

The article, published in June 2020, claimed that Rebel had seen “amazing results” since adopting the method during her stay at the VivaMayr wellness center in Austria.
This information has since been repeated countless times by other news outlets, with the food website Mashed publishing an article last month stating that she was on the diet and listing her corresponding day on a plate.
But Rebel didn’t correct the record until Monday, April 18, when Daily Mail Australia ran a story about her dramatic weight loss, citing the Mashed report.
In her Instagram statement, the Pitch Perfect star also warned fans against diet pill scams using her image without permission.

Although Rebel denied following the Mayr Method diet, she spent time in 2020 at a wellness center that uses Dr. Mayr’s techniques, so perhaps this is where the confusion arose.
She documented her time on Instagram, posting in December that year: “Thank you Dr Schubert and the whole @vivamayraltaussee team in beautiful Austria”.
‘I’m going to start 2021 in an amazing place, with a healthy body and mind…and a strong immune system!
“I love the care you all give to your patients – I’m so grateful!” Now let’s get to maintaining weight loss and a healthy lifestyle! »
The VivaMayr Altaussee wellness center in Austria, where Rebel stayed, costs $5,097 for a week, while a two-week program can cost up to $9,500.
According to the centre’s website, “the Vivamayr Weight Care program aims to optimize your weight and consists of a fixed part and a variable part”.
Rebel also attributed her weight loss to daily walks.
She told Apple Fitness+ in January that walking, rather than high-intensity workouts, had actually been her secret weapon for losing weight.
Rebel said a doctor at a health retreat advised her to do some light exercise, insisting it was the ‘best way’ for her to shed pounds.

“The doctor said to me, ‘Rebel, the best way for you to lose unwanted body fat is to just walk,'” she explained.
“It doesn’t have to be high intensity, not necessarily uphill, just moderate walking for an hour a day. And if you can do it, for you, for your body type, that’s, like, the best way to lose unwanted body fat.
To keep her walks interesting, Rebel said she often listens to podcasts.
