"I've had a 'torrid' affair with buying clothes all my life," she said in a statement. "I've never really felt like there's a brand out there in the plus size world that is creating cool stuff, that fits well and is good quality yet affordable.

"It's really only been in the last few years that I've seen companies try. So it was awesome to team with Torrid, who I think are doing such a great job in making plus size fashion relevant and dope."

The Bridesmaids actress often looks effortlessly cool on the red carpet, but she revealed she had enjoyed being involved in the design process for a change.

"I've been loving designing the clothes for my capsule collection. I've been putting my unique style and personal loves into the clothing and literally can't wait for the collection to launch!"

The range will reflect Rebel's renowned quirky style, including a Koala print T-shirt, a nod to her Australian heritage.

It comes as no surprise that the comedienne has branched into the world of fashion – she has previously spoken candidly about her rise to fame and the impact it has had on the way she thinks about clothes.

"It's becoming important for me," she told Elle. "I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren't any women in Hollywood my size and age."
