Miss Lily Collins was founded by Neide in June 19, 2016. But before Miss Lily Collins, there was Introducing Lily Collins – the longest running fansite dedicated to Lily Collins and founded by Mikaela in February 16, 2011. Lisa, Lindsey, Alexa and Amanda joined her right after, and helped her keep the site up-to-date until late 2013, when it was taken over by Adele and put on hiatus. On early 2015 the site was adopted by Gabby, Lora and Neide. Sadly, the site closed later that year, after its host closed. It was in the following year that Neide decided to bring back the site, under a new name. A shout-out to the incredible ladies behind Introducing Lily Collins because without them, this site wouldn’t be the same.
Neide: I’ve been a fan of Lily ever since i saw her in “Mirror, Mirror”, even more after i found out she would be playing Clary Fray in “The Mortal Instruments” which was based on a book series i was obsessed with at the time! From then on, i began to follow her career and in a snap of fingers became a fan. It’s been quite a ride, and it’s fair to say that over the years i’ve grown to admire this talented actress, model and now writer! If i had to pick one favorite movie of Lily’s – It would be “Love, Rosie”. Such a sweet movie that i’ve watched many times now, and each time feels like it’s the first time i’m watching.
I’ve had the hobby of making fansites for quite a few years now. In early 2015, two friends and i were granted the opportunity to adopt the longest running fansite, Introducing Lily Collins, which sadly got closed after our host closed its doors. Content wasn’t lost however and when in 2016 i realized i missed working on a fansite dedicated to Lily, i reached out to my friend who not only gave me her blessing but donated the content of Introducing Lily Collins. Months later, Miss Lily Collins was born.
