Although acting is her forte, the 24-year-old is no stranger to style and fashion, admitting to Lucky Magazine that she gets more excited to meet fashion designers than she does other actors.
Like that one time she met Christian Louboutin at a Golden Globes event:
“I walked up to him and said, ‘I don’t know if you remember me, but I interviewed you for my school paper.’” The designer thanked her profusely for the opportunity, the absurdity of which is not lost on her. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, thank you!’”
Lily may have earned herself the magazine’s April cover, but she’s never let her celebrity status get to her head. Growing up as the daughter of Phil Collins, high tea with Sir Elton John and meetings with Mario Testino were “just part of her everyday.” No big deal.
So when she got an invite to attend the Met Ball, she was genuinely excited. She says:
“The Met Ball? Being invited to something like that? Incredible! I still think, Why am I on the list? I still feel like a little girl dressing up and getting to go to a pretty party.”
Keep on reading to see what Lily had to say about her personal style and the idea of trying her hand at designing.
On her go-to makeup look:
“I’ve always been a big fan of ‘less is more’—the idea that you can accept a little help to accentuate what you already have and bring out that extra sparkle….I like to save the dramatic moments for events or photo shoots.”
Describing her personal style:
“I love pushing the boundaries with fashion,” she says. “I’m feeling a little bit edgier and sexier.”
Designing her own line of clothes:
“I would never just put my name on something,” she says. “It would have to be me designing…..I like to support designers, and I am genuinely one of those girls who loves dressing up and getting the opportunity to wear art in the form of clothes,” she says. “I don’t need to publicize it, though. Or go to every fashion event I’m invited to. Acting is my focus.”
