Hello Lilyans, and welcome to Miss Lily Collins new look! We’re very exciting to be debuting it, and we were planning on doing it with a huge gallery update but due to Lily’s most recent news, we couldn’t help ourselves. We just had to put it up online, but before we got to the big news, W magazine has unveiled their TV Portfolio and Lily’s made the cut! For this year, the magazine has challenged television stars to pay homage to her favorite small-screen character by stepping into their shoes. For the photo, taken by Mike Desir, Lily has decided on honoring The Great British Bake Off’s judge Prue Leith – as she loves to bake!

“I’m playing the most American character I’ve ever played,” says Lily Collins, the star of Netflix’s hit comedy Emily in Paris. “I’ve never felt more American, but in my real life, I feel very British. And yet I felt so disconnected from my European side, having to be Emily.” Collins is speaking from Paris, where she has begun filming season 2 of the series—which is coming off of a recent Emmy nomination that left her and her costar Ashley Park in bits. “[We] were together on set in my apartment when she read her phone and said, ‘Were we? Are we? We were nominated for the Emmys!’ ” the actor recalls. “We didn’t know they were being announced, and then we just started screaming and had to yell, ‘Cut!’ ” Collins, who was born in Guildford, Surrey, in the English countryside, might star in a Paris-based show as an American girl, but her roots, she says, are firmly planted in the U.K. This is part of the reason she chose to honor The Great British Bake Off for W’s TV Portfolio, in which she embodies judge Prue Leith—also, because she herself loves to bake. “There are these specific chocolate chip cookies that I make, which I’ve been asked many times for the recipe,” she says of her signature dessert. “Eight years ago, I started Googling ideas, and at this point, it’s all just based on memory and sight.” We’d like to think she’d do well against Paul Hollywood’s judging eye.

When was the first time you saw The Great British Bake Off?

I saw the show’s first season. I feel so at home in the English countryside, having grown up there, and I love any show about baking and cooking. I love being surrounded by the British accent, especially if I’m not in England; there’s something very nostalgic about it. I just watch every season, even when they were changing hosts. I can’t stop watching. I binge it.

Can you bake?

I do love baking. I see it as very therapeutic. I like to think of it as a bit of a puzzle piece, as well, because I bake a lot of gluten-free, vegan things, which a lot of the time people think sounds not so fun or gross, but I get such a kick out of making something with vegan chocolate, or more ingredients, and seeing if it works. And when my little brother told me that my cookies were absolutely amazing and he loved them and ate five, I told him it wasn’t real chocolate, and his mind was blown.

InStyle has released an interview featuring Lily, where she speaks about her new film Mank, celebrating her engagement at home, and what she thinks Emily Cooper would be doing in quarantine. You can read the interview and watch Lily answer some fan e-mail below, plus check our gallery for outtakes from the photo session!

This story, like many set in the never-ending stress dream that is 2020, begins with technical difficulties.

“I should be better at this point,” Lily Collins tells me when we finally manage to connect over Zoom. “I still find myself floundering,” she says, referring to the mechanics of our new normal: virtual interviews and FaceTime photoshoots, a once foreign vernacular that includes ring light settings and meeting room codes.

Despite the admitted at-home learning curve, Collins’s comfort with communication (of any form) is clear. Appearing on-screen in a pale pink sweater with shoulder cut-outs, her long brown hair parted down the middle and flowing unreservedly across her chest (the way the YouTube tutorial tells you it should — but it never does), she seems at-ease, eager even.

It feels like a clapperboard has been slammed shut, “action!” called on the first take of the day. Collins’s energy is high and her answers profuse — words spilling out in a race against the 60-minute clock that is our conversation. Of course, this isn’t the first take of the day — minutes before our interview Collins was finishing up another, and just hours later she was playing a game of faux tennis on her mother’s court for our photoshoot. Then came the virtual premiere of her new Netflix film, Mank. Even in this state of quarantine, the action never stops.

On the rare occasion she has been able to slow down, she’s dedicated her time to self-reflection, as this period marks the longest stretch of the 31-year-old’s adult life that she’s spent at home, temporarily liberated from the upheaval of international press tours and on-location shoots.

Whatever your thoughts on the fashion choices in the viral TV hit Emily in Paris, it’s clear that the actor in the titular role is no slouch in the wardrobe department. The contents of Lily Collins’s LA wardrobe are consistent with her polished brand of girl-next-door charm – from the high-school sweatshirt that inspired her book, to the Levi’s jeans she wore to Karl Lagerfeld’s last Chanel show – but there are some show-stopping pieces, too, namely the bespoke Chanel shoes the French house made for her debut at Le Bal des Débutantes, or the Crillon Ball. Watch the video for a glimpse of Collins’s favourite wardrobe binders – and the vintage memento she picked up between takes in Paris.
