Rebel's fans loved her waterside photos

Rebel's escape comes after she delighted fans by recreating an iconic Britney Spears look.

The actress donned a shimmery green off-the-shoulder top and skin-tight trousers in homage to Britney's 1999 hit (You Drive Me) Crazy for a scene in Senior Year.

Posing in her trailer, Rebel appeared to have had extensions added to her hair, which was styled into tight curls just like Britney's.

Sharing a clip of her final day on set, Rebel took fans through her makeup and wardrobe and revealed some behind-the-scenes footage of filming a Britney tribute.

Rebel also emulated Britney's style by appearing in another look from the music video, a pink waitress uniform with her hair in similar pigtails.

Fans rushed to compliment the Australian star, who recently revealed she has lost over 75lbs since overhauling her lifestyle.

"Absolutely stunning darling, you look gorgeous dear!" exclaimed one follower. A second said: "Yass! So excited for Crazy, this is going to be epic!" A third added: "You look absolutely amazing," and a fourth gushed: "I hope you're taking that outfit with you because you look adorable!"
