DuJour has published an article listing five actresses and how far they have gotten in their career since they were first covered by the publication. Lily is one of the chosen ladies, and you can read her article bellow!

Collins has portrayed women preoccupied with perfection before. In last year’s Rules Don’t Apply, for which DuJour profiled the 28-year-old, she played Marla Mabrey, a “virtuous beauty pageant winner” and aspiring starlet with whom Collins possessed certain parallels as well. “Marla had wanted everything within her control to be ‘just so’ in order to catch the eye of Howard Hughes. It was important to her to look a certain way and behave in a particular manor in order to fit in, based on common traits she saw among the other girls she was competing with,” says Collins, who, as a one-time deb at Paris’s aristocratic Bal de Débutantes, has survived her fair share of pageantry. “Both women, Marla and Ellen, wanted others to accept them in some way but they had different ways of expressing it,” she adds. “Ellen’s just manifested itself in a more harmful way and was more psychologically challenging to portray.”
