Hello Lilyians! Hope you are all safe. For those of you who don’t know, WE has been hosting a daily show titled WE Schools Live – designed to engage students in learning, find community connection, and promote well-being. On today’s Wellness Wednesday, the host of the daily show was none other than Lily! She was joined by Joe Jonas and Jay Shetty, and we bring you the full video from the show below!
WWD published a couple of weeks ago an article on Emily in Paris, the upcoming television series starring Lily! Our gallery has been updated with two behind the scenes photos featuring Lily, and you can read the full article below.
Among clichés about Paris: Fashion is such an entrenched part of daily life that taxi drivers in the French capital can talk authoritatively about collections and designers during fashion weeks.
Darren Star discovered a new one: that French extras on film sets know precisely, almost instinctively, how to behave at a fashion show.
That was the case last week when 250 extras assembled for one of the finale scenes for season one of “Emily in Paris,” the television series the “Sex and the City” and “Beverly Hills, 90210” creator has been filming in the French capital, and environs, for the last four months. Shooting wraps up this week, and the 10 episodes are slated to air next summer on the Paramount Network.
“We’re really getting the character and the texture of the city — and it informs everything we do,” says Star, inviting WWD to attend a sprawling shoot in the courtyard of La Monnaie de Paris that involved a garbage truck, a guerrilla fashion show of outlandish neon gowns, and a roped-off red carpet swamped by a noisy crowd.
Star describes the series as a romantic comedy or “dramedy” centered on a “fish-out-of-water” American in Paris, portrayed by Lily Collins, on this day dressed in a floral-print puffer jacket, matching short skirt and bright pink beret.
The 30-year-old actress appears in almost every scene as Emily, sharing her star billing with a city that Star has swooned over since he was 19, and one he found to be more ravishing and picturesque than ever.
“We’ve become very inward-looking as a country, and I think it’s good to do a show that celebrates another culture,” Star says, seated on a director’s chair tucked in a chilly hallway steps away from the main action. “Anywhere you put the camera, this city looks gorgeous and surreally beautiful. That’s another cliché of Paris.”

Filming for the dramedy television series Emily in Paris began this week in Paris and the first photos of Lily on the set have been released – Where she looks absolutely beautiful, and may i just add that i love the wardrobe so far?! I can’t wait to see more of this. For those of you who might not know, Emily in Paris is an upcoming Paramount Network television series starring Lily Collins and tells the story of “A young American woman from the Midwest is hired by a marketing firm in Paris to provide them with an American perspective on things.” It has also been revealed that Ashley Park (who you might recognize from Mean Girls: The Musical) will play Mindy Chen, an au pair in her twenties besotted with Paris, who befriends Emily and tries to convince the less-enamored girl that Parisian life is parfait! You can find all the photos in our gallery!
Hey Lilyians! Lily attended the Cartier Magnitude Collection Gala last night, and we’ve got for you photos of her getting ready for the event thanks to Vogue! One photo from the gala was also added to our gallery, and we will surely add more when they get available. In the meantime, you can read an article posted on Vogue’s website!
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!”
Lily attended yesterday a photocall for Les Misérables in Los Angeles, and our gallery has been updated with photos of Lily arriving and posing at the event with her co-stars!
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.
The 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 Witch; Two 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.”
