If anyone knows how to have fun with fashion, it’s Rebel Wilson. The 39-year-old Australian actress is known for her lively sense of style, allowing her bright spirit to shine through with each and every look she wears. She's continued to gravitate towards a mix of practical yet polished pieces, with her current rotation featuring an arsenal of cheeky statement tees, Eloquii leggings, and colorful accessories (her bright blue Givenchy Antigona bag is a go-to that seriously pops).

While a quick scroll through Wilson's Instagram turns up one jazzy look after another (her designer sweatshirt game is downright impressive, with Fendi and Moschino leading the pack) she certainly knows how to turn up the glam factor when hitting the red carpet. But even when sporting the most dramatic ensembles, she brings along her famous sense of humor and carefree nature, making it clear that, above all else, she's enjoying herself. Not many people could pull off a pair of Givenchy glasses dripping in crystal fringe — like the ones Wilson wore to the 2018 InStyle Awards — at a black-tie affair, but when she steps out wearing them, it just looks right.

Though Wilson seems to embrace a healthy dose of bling when it comes to her eyewear, you'll rarely see the star fully iced out otherwise. “I don’t wear much jewelry,” she says. “I actually don’t even have my ears pierced!” What she’s lacking in the jewelry department, Wilson certainly makes up for with the rest of each look — and that includes her beauty routine. Her makeup bag staples include a sparkly Dior lip balm, a range of Chanel nail polish shades, and a shimmery Charlotte Tilbury bronzing palette. There's also, of course, her signature blonde locks, which she keeps looking fresh thanks to Kevin Murphy dry shampoo and UNITE Blonda shampoo and conditioner.

Wilson is always keeping things real, so for our May issue, we asked our unfiltered cover star to give us a rundown of her favorite things. Because if it ranks on her list, it must really be worth a mention. Here are 17 of her top picks, from style and beauty to travel and TV.
