Last night, Cartier threw a star-studded party at Shoreditch Town Hall to celebrate Magnitude, the Maison’s new High Jewellery Collection. After dinner, guests including Claire Foy, Ella Balinska, Letitia Wright and Iris Law were treated to an electric performance from Beth Ditto, before heading downstairs to dance the night away to sets by DJs Paul Sevigny and Mimi Xu.

One special guest, Lily Collins, invited Vogue over to get ready with her before the gala. So what does the actor listen to to get her in the mood while she’s preparing for a red-carpet event? “My music choices tend to be all over the place when I’m getting ready,” Collins revealed. “It really depends on our vibe for the night. It can go anywhere from Kygo, Khalid, and Katy Perry dance tracks, to retro disco hits, classic Motown tunes, or epic ’90s throwbacks. I usually let Spotify guide my mood.”

For the cocktail attire dress code, Collins chose a plunging embellished black suit to best show off the breathtaking yellow diamond, sapphire and lapis lazuli Cartier necklace that completed her outfit. “The moment I saw this stunning necklace I knew it was the one. The combination of the blue sapphires and yellow diamonds were so captivating and the exquisite neckline of the piece stood out. I knew I wanted it to stand alone on my skin so we were sure to find an outfit that allowed the necklace to breathe on its own and have the moment it deserves. Similarly, as far as beauty, we wanted to complement its colours and geometric design so we let those inspire us.”

One of the first out of her seat as soon as Beth Ditto took the stage, Collins is certainly fond of a little dance. “To be honest, it doesn’t take that much to convince me to get up. But of course if a female anthem comes on from Spice Girls, Robyn, Rihanna, or Jess Glynn I’d jump straight on it even faster. I’d also never turn down “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” by The Temptations. Motown hits are the best!”

For THR‘s annual class photo, 30 top TV actors reveal which co-star they’d call to bail them out of jail, the scene that had them squirming and what their dream spinoff would look like. Lily is one of the stars to speak about her favorite television series and her dream spinoff. Read all about it below.

001.jpgThe show you never missed as a teen?
“I had my Monday shows. I had my Thursday shows. I had my TGI Friday shows. So it was 7th Heaven on Mondays, and then Fridays were Sabrina the Teenage WitchTwo Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place; and The Wonder Years on Nick at Nite. And I loved Freaks and Geeks, but that was only on one season. When I was in school, I would look forward to finishing my homework and being able to watch these shows.”

What would a spinoff of your show be?
“Fantine in heaven. Or maybe I’d do her earlier years — Fantine at home before she had to move to Paris. Otherwise it would be based in heaven. Or hell, but probably heaven.”

Los Angeles Times released yesterday an article in which Lily Collins and her Tolkien co-star Nicholas Hoult speak about the movie, preparing for the role and J.R.R. Tolkien. You can read the full article below, plus check out some beautiful outtakes of the duo taken for the article in our gallery!

The early years of J.R.R. Tolkien’s life play out very much like fiction in Dome Karukoski’s biopic of the famed author. So much so that Karukoski doesn’t really consider “Tolkien,” in theaters Friday, to be a biopic at all.

The film, which stars Nicholas Hoult as the “Lord of the Rings” author and Lily Collins as his wife, Edith Bratt, recounts Tolkien’s young life, from the loss of his parents to his school years to fighting in World War I. Much of that personal saga is unknown, even to super fans of Tolkien, a category in which Karukoski puts himself.

“I didn’t know anything about his younger life,” the director said during a recent press day in London. “When I started digging it was surprising. It was this fable of emotions he had experienced that are so readable in his own books. … It’s a story about youth and love and friendship and exploring his mind. It’s quite stunning that this story hasn’t been told.”

Hoult, who also grew up reading the author’s works, looked for fine details and nuance in his research, pulling from books and video interviews Tolkien did later in life. His goal wasn’t to do an impression of Tolkien, but to try to get inside his head and capture his essence.

“Nowadays, even if you don’t know someone’s work you seem to know them, just through how much news is covered and through Twitter,” the actor reflected. “You seem to know a lot about a lot of people’s lives. And this is someone who I was a fan of and when I read the script I was like, ‘Wow, I didn’t know any of that.’ It was … lovely to get to go back through his work and learn about what inspired him and the relationships that meant something to him.”

The actor prepared while shooting “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” and spent time between takes — in full costume and makeup as Beast — painting watercolors in Tolkien’s style.

He added, “You do all this research and then hopefully in the back of your mind, when you’re on set, it’s subconsciously there. Detail is where it all comes from.”

Collins had less to work with because Edith and her life aren’t well documented. A few photographs, including some of the couple together, do exist — the actress sensed a cheekiness to Edith, which she brought to the performance — and Collins was able to research what it would have been like for women during that period in general.
