Lily Collins was on the cover of December 16th issue of Stella. Looking absolutely beautiful, as always, Lily speaks about beating anorexia, overshadowing her father and starring in BBC’s Les Misérables. You can read the full article below, and check out the photos in our gallery!

A few months ago, Phil Collins told his daughter that he’d heard a British DJ introduce one of his songs with the words: ‘For those of you who don’t know, this is Lily Collins’s dad.’ ‘He thought it was so funny,’ chuckles the 29-year-old actor. ‘And so did I. It’s just interesting, I guess, how different generations get defined by different things.’

As one of the defining voices of the 1980s and a man who remains one of the world’s bestselling artists, it would have been easy for Collins to overshadow his multitalented daughter’s success. Certainly, when I first interviewed Lily five years ago for the romcom Love, Rosie, she was still being defined not just by her famous father, but the Audrey Hepburn-esque looks that had won her modelling contracts as a teenager living in LA.

Since we last saw each other, Lily has redefined herself on her own terms. And when UK audiences are treated to her nuanced, poignant portrayal of Cosette’s desperate mother, Fantine, in the lavish new six-part BBC adaptation of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables, they won’t see Phil Collins’s daughter but a remarkable British-born talent at the top of her game.

‘I had a few friends in the musical version, and I was so keen to play this part in what’s a very different adaptation,’ says Lily of the role that won Anne Hathaway an Oscar – a role she begged producers to be allowed to audition for, so desperate was she to be involved.

That the director, Tom Shankland, had decided against his being a musical adaptation meant the all-star cast – including Dominic West as Jean Valjean, David Oyelowo as Javert and Olivia Colman as Madame Thénardier – were able to return to Hugo’s original characters, she says. ‘And getting to work through the whole arc of Fantine’s life was incredible. Although in fact the death scene was filmed on day two,’ she adds with a side smile. ‘So it was a case of, “Hi, nice to meet you – I’m about to die”.’

Great news, Lily is on the cover of the December issue of Glamour UK and in a very beautiful photoshoot as you can check below! Along with the beautiful outtakes i bring you an interview from the magazine, where Lily speaks about Les Misérables, famous family and dating!

2018 was the year of fearless female performances but THE TV Christmas blockbuster, Les Misérables, saves the best for last with Lily Collins’ star turn as Fantine. Here she navigates the minefield of millennial dating, -13°C locations and a late-twenties crisis with GLAMOUR’S Josh Newis-Smith.

“I’ve been ghosted more times than I care to admit,” Lily confesses, as we discuss the minefield that is millennial dating. Adorned in a slouchy black hoodie with her hair scraped back into a care-free ponytail and barely a lick of make-up, Lily could be any twenty-something in debrief mode.

In fact, the only indication that this is a Golden Globe nominee who since starting to act at the age of two, has carved a place for herself as a go-to starlet – in such varied roles in Rules Don’t ApplyMirror Mirror and Love, Rosie– is the vast Hollywood home that plays backdrop to our interview and her GLAMOUR cover shoot.

About to hit our screens in her career-defining role as Fantine, who is dumped unceremoniously by her lover – Victorian ghosting if you will – and left to fend for her child alone, we are musing on how, just like the iconic character, Lily has navigated her own fair share of heart ache. “There are times when I’ve [been on dates and] thought we had a great time and then I’ve never heard from the guy again,” she continues. With this level of ‘gal pal’ magnetism it’s no wonder she has garnered 11 million Instagram followers, and counting. “Sometimes that happens after one date, a couple of dates or one month. I would prefer people to be honest with me, as I live like that. I don’t think it will be something I can ever figure out. The good thing is that we all have the same issues.” Alexa, play Thank U, Next by Ariana Grande…

Lily was recently featured in the December issue of British Vogue, where she speaks about Les Misérables, why she loves Ariana Grande and more. You can read the article posted on the official website below, and scans and outtakes have been added to the gallery as you can check!

 

It was the dead of winter and an icy -13C when Lily Collins arrived in Brussels to start filming the BBC’s long-awaited adaptation of Les Misérables. As Fantine – an orphaned, penniless young woman forced into prostitution – Collins went through “a very drastic transformation”, so much so that people didn’t recognise the young movie star on set.

“I really got to see what I was made of on this shoot,” Collins says from the warmer climes of LA. “Whether it was the temperature or the workload or the physicality of Fantine and her storyline and her sadness, I learned what I could withstand. “Like many, Collins’s first experience of Victor Hugo’s classic novel was as a musical (a school production, rather than West End), although this latest version won’t include singing – so any Anne Hathaway comparisons can be put to bed now. “You get to see the character in a different way when there’s not a song,” says Collins. “What was said in a lyric gets to be a fully fledged scene. It’s been a real bucket-list thing to do.”

Christmas is an overload for the senses, so I try not to overload my party look. When I think of the holidays I think of tartan and Vivienne Westwood. There’s something very Chrisimassy and opulent about her looks that I love.

Hey Lilyians! This past Saturday, September 15, Lily attended the CAA Pre-Emmy Party where she had some fun in the photobooth with Noah Centineo and their agent Nick Styne. While we’re still crossing our fingers for more photos, you can view the released ones so far below!

Hello Lilyians! Today we were blessed with a new Lily photoshoot, and doesn’t she look absolutely gorgeous! Joining Givenchy’s artist director Clare Waight, the powerful duo is the cover of InStyle’s September issue! Outtakes from the photo session have been added to our gallery, and you can read the interview posted on InStyle’s website and watch the behind-the-scenes below!

Actress Lily Collins remembers meeting Waight Keller a decade ago when she was invited to attend one of the designer’s first shows for Pringle. “I walked into my fitting, and she was just a ball of energy but also incredibly calm,” Collins says. “I thought, ‘This is so strange — how is she so levelheaded and at the same time so energetic? Doesn’t she have a show tomorrow?’ She is just so passionate and vibrant when she talks.”

Collins, who was filming the BBC production of Les Misérables in Brussels just before flying to Paris for her InStyle shoot, felt as if she were reuniting with an old girlfriend. She had already traveled with the designer to Tokyo for a brand event and to New York to attend the Met Gala, where she wore a Givenchy couture gown that combined layers of black satin, organza, and radzimir with a white trim around the loose collar, a not-quite-chaste interpretation of a nun’s habit.

“It was so beautifully telling of that line between making a statement and not being too costumey,” Collins says. “I think that is what Clare is doing with the brand.”
