Hey Lilyians! You guessed, there’s a new photoshoot out – Lily is on the cover of the Winter 2020/2021 issue of ContentMode and we bring you not only the two covers out, but also outtakes from the session. Below you’ll also find an interview, in which Lily speaks about her relationship with Netflix, Emily in Paris and Mank.

Interview by Allie King
“Art is healing.” Lily Collins has a history of prioritizing healing in both her writing and acting. Now, as the world struggles together, this has proved to be what we’ve all been wanting and needing. In hopes to escape from the reality of 2020, people are turning to their streaming services for comfort and solace. If this is you, you have probably had Lily Collins on your screen at least once this year. Collins, with a long list of iconic roles, has enriched our screens time and time again this year: First by allowing us to laugh with her role as Emily in “Emily in Paris,” and now by being the supportive sidekick we all need, as Rita Alexander, in “Mank.” Both are now streaming on Netflix.

Allie King: This year has been hectic for everyone but overall it seems like you’ve had a good year. I wanted to congratulate you on your recent engagement.

Lily Collins: Thank you!

Allie King: Also, you have had a lot of big projects come out this year. In my reading, everyone was considering you a household name. I have been a fan of yours for years, but that is a big title and a lot of new viewers are getting to know you. How have you been able to balance the pandemic with your work this year?

Lily Collins: Thank you. That’s very nice of you and I appreciate that. It has been interesting. First of all, I’m never in one place for this amount of time, so there’s real joy in staying put. I’ve used this quarantine as a really important time for self-reflection, introspection, and educating myself. When we are stripped away of all distraction, and we are left within our walls — the same walls for months and months — you are forced to look at these metaphorical mirrors.

I have been saying that doing these junkets and press from home has been as equally lonely — because you are not interacting with the people that you normally would be, whether it’s your team, the interviewer, or your co-stars — as it is kind of invasive — because you are doing it from your home. There is no separation. But it has been so wonderful to be able to share everything that we did together with people.

I am super grateful that Emily [in Paris] hit at a time when people need to laugh and smile the most. Someone told me recently that it reminded them of what fun used to feel like. And that is such a weird statement in a sense. To have to be reminded of that is a very strange thing. But to be a part of someone’s remembering is a huge gift. Then you have Mank on top of it, which has such deep-set nostalgia apart of it, at a time that I have been seeking and clinging to anything that feels like history and the world that we once knew.

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.

A continuation to our previous post, on Lily being on the cover of the Global Winter 2020 issue of L’Officiel ART, it has been released by L’Officiel the interview, where Lily speaks to Alber Elbaz and Joshua Glass about Emily in Paris, Mank and the future. You can read the full interview below, and our gallery’s been updated with new outtakes!

When Lily Collins arrived in Paris over a year and a half ago to start filming Emily in Paris—the unsuspecting Netflix feelgood that became an overnight fame monster—the city was not as she’d expected. Born in Surrey, England but raised in LA, the daughter of Phil Collins has long been a Francophile, but upon returning to the French capital as Emily, an American hopeful trying to infiltrate the world of high fashion, the city’s volume seemed softer. With August’s heat seducing most Parisians to Biarritz or Provence for holiday, Collins and crew found themselves almost in a world of their own—that is until the rest of the world took notice.

Signatured by his oval-shaped frames and unperturbed glee, Alber Elbaz had a similar experience when he first immigrated from New York. “I was like, where is everyone?” recalls Elbaz, who moved across the Atlantic to work under Guy Laroche in the mid ‘90s. The fashion designer, who would later go on to Yves Saint Laurent before forging his legacy by reshaping the house of Lanvin—and contemporary women’s fashion as we know it—was, however, home that summer. Fate in the form of a mutual friend brought Elbaz and Collins together, and the two continued to run into each other in the weeks that the Darren Star–created series filmed. “At one point I was like, am I in this show?” he laughs. Elbaz was, in fact, not, but the pair’s parallelity was sealed in more ways than one.

Many months of Internet memes and record-breaking numbers later, Collins, with her beret temporarily retired, is no less Emily today as she is no less her old self, either. Newly engaged, the actress is embarking on what might be the most important phase of her career with Mank, David Fincher’s new biographical drama about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and his notorious feud with director Orson Welles. Demure but biting, Collins plays Rita, the wispy secretary to Gary Oldman’s Mankiewicz and voice of reason to the overlooked writer’s domestic chaos. The black-and-white film was written by Fincher’s late father, Jack, and glorifies Old Hollywood drama through the director’s masterful style. Nine hours ahead in France, Elbaz is tiptoeing on the cusp of newness, too. Since his departure from Lanvin in 2015, the influential designer has purposely kept himself out of the fashion arena, collaborating instead on beauty, footwear, and even cinema projects—that is, until now, with the slow launch of his largely secretive, Richemont-backed fashion startup, AZ Factory, which debuts in January. Displaced from the cobblestones of Paris, the actress and the designer reconnect to discuss their shared excitement for one another, creativity in quarantine, and joy ahead.

(Photos) Lily Collins covers L’Officiel ART Global Winter 2020

It appears that nothing can stop Lily from gracing us with beautiful magazine covers. It has just been announced that she will be on the cover of the Global Winter 2020 issue of L’Officiel ART! In collaboration with filmmaker and photographer, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Lily reflects on Emily in Paris and previews her upcoming film, Mank. The magazine is set to hit newsstands on December 8, but in the meantime, enjoy the cover and the preview released by L’Officiel!

EDIT: Our gallery has been updated with two outtakes, and the cover for L’Officiel Paris!

For L’OFFICIEL‘s Global Winter 2020 issue—a celebration of the different disciplines of fashion, art, and entertainment—we found ourselves musing on the escape from the cities and the returned interest in nature; a subject pervasive in every conversation right now, be it focused on politics, health, or sustainability. Historically, the countryside has always played the wholesome foil to the seductive cityscape, but as Rem Koolhaas’ recent Solomon R. Guggenheim show Countryside, The Future illustrated, this relationship is rapdily shifting. Thus, we asked ourselves: What happens when the dialectic of city and country or urban and rural becomes flipped? Where will ideas be located? What does it mean for the accessibility of art, and how will urban centers—once the loci of creatvity—fare in this shift?

In essays that question the history of follies and look at the influence of artist residencies to fashion stories that contrast life between the city and countryside we explored this. And for our cover shoot, Fifty Shades of Grey filmmaker and artist Sam Taylor-Johnson placed actor Lily Collins by the Pacific Ocean, creating haunting images suspended between past and future. Collins herself performs a balancing act in her successful career, on screens simultaneously as the romantic eponymous lead in Emily in Paris, and as Rita, Herman J. Mankiewicz’s assistant in David Fincher’s new movie, Mank, and speaks to cult-favorite fashion designer Alber Elbaz about both’s next big steps.

Ultimately, we learn that the once-opposite concepts of city and country are in fact fluid and interrelated. As we see from the many artists and creatives who are transforming their work within nature, the countryside can be much more than just a pretty background or an escape: It is a place for optimism, invention, and oppertunity.
