Glamour July 2013 | Lily Collins

Lily Collins. 

I've been in awe of this young thing for years. Those brows! That style! 

I am so pleased that she is getting more popular in Hollywood, that means I can buy more magazines with her on the cover! Like this fabulous Glamour cover and shoot.

It was shot in Bergdorf Goodman. So basically it's already amazing. Add Glamour Mag + Lily Collins to the mix and we have some magical stuff here people. 

In all seriousness, this is one of my favorite shoots I've seen in a while. I can't wait to purchase a copy of this magazine for my collection!

Check out some photos below from the Glamour site, and a sneak peek at her interview too! If you're feeling like you want more Lily keep on scrolling, I've included her fashion files from the past few years. I know, I know, you love me. 





Now for a Sneak Peek at Lily's Interview! 

Glamour: Did you ever ask your dad for help?
Lily Collins: No, I always wanted to do it on my own. I never wanted anyone making phone calls. A name can open doors, but there’s a quote I like: “Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open.”

Glamour: In your new movie Stuck in Love, your character, Samantha, is a little like you: a writer with a famous father.
Lily Collins: It’s my most meaningful project so far. I fought for the role for seven months. I read the script and thought, No one but me can play this. Samantha is promiscuous, cynical, sarcastic—qualities that are not me, but fun to channel. I also liked her relationship with her dad.

Glamour: Do you consider anyone your mentor?
Lily Collins: My mom. It has nothing to do with acting. She guides me through my personal life, telling me to experiment. She lets me borrow her vintage. She has Chanel and eighties stuff from Yohji Yamamoto and Vivienne Westwood that she got when vintage wasn’t cool. She’d wear them to events with my dad, and everyone would ask what she had on; when she said “vintage,” they’d go, “Oh, that’s nice,” and, you know, turn the corner.

Glamour: You recently ran into Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld in Paris. How does that work? Does he simply appear from a plume of smoke?
Lily Collins: That’s how he should arrive, right? We’d met briefly before, and I was shopping at Colette when he just walked in and said, “Ah, Lily!” Karl Lagerfeld in Paris. Epic.

Glamour: The Mortal Instruments is going to be epic too.
Lily Collins: I’m so excited! I had read and really loved the books.

Glamour: The anticipation level is pretty crazy. Readers have a lot of opinions about the movie.
Lily Collins: The fans [in Toronto, during filming] were amazing. They’d bring us cookies, mugs, tea, drawings, everything. I want to make sure I live up to their expectations as Clary.

Glamour: It all reminds me of where Jennifer Lawrence was right before The Hunger Games.
LC: She’s a friend; she’s awesome. The choices Jennifer has made have been really interesting. And I loved how she carried herself after her trip [going up onstage] at the Oscars. I was like, “You go, girl!”

Glamour: Do you have many actor friends?
Lily Collins: It’s funny, but the friends I’ve made in this business, some of us started out getting each other’s phone numbers in audition rooms because we were like, “I see you all the time. Why are we not hanging out?”

Glamour: We have to ask: Have you started getting dressed in the morning with the paparazzi in mind?
Lily Collins: Even in L.A., where everyone’s in yoga pants, I’ve never been the girl to run around in sweats. I love fashion and always have something put together, but I won’t wear anything specifically to be photographed in. I have become more cautious of making funny faces in public.

Glamour: So, Ms. Next Big Thing, what keeps you grounded?
Lily Collins: My mom. She has always encouraged me to feel like being me is enough. That’s really special, especially in a place like Hollywood. She’s my best friend.
