Against all odds, Lily Collins — daughter of ’80s soft rock god Phil Collins — has made the crop top red carpet -worthy. Seen here at the premiere of “Immortal Instruments,” Lily is showing strangers like me how elegant an exposed navel can be. What a wake up call! If the trend hangs in long enough — or at least one more night — maybe I’ll give crop tops a shot. Then I’ll be saying, “Take a look at me now!” [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
Separately, I’m not a big fan of crop tops or high-waist leather trousers, but apparently when the two are combined, worn by Lily Collins, and paired with platform pumps and vampy lipstick, my initial “meh” transforms into “Wow!” I’m giving this trendly lil’ outfit a big thumbs up. What say you? [Photo: Splash News]
Stars, they’re just like us — except for the high-priced stylists, hair and makeup people they have on speed dial, that is. But what happens when you take away all of that — when celebs are caught out and about, unaware that their every move is being recorded by a discerning paparazzi camera?
Take Lily Collins. Collins is lucky enough to have a stupidly gorgeous face. I mean, look at those eyebrows! She could wear a trash bag and a pair of Crocs and still manage to look good. So when she’s all dolled up for special events — like say, promoting her new movie, “The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones” at ComicCon, well, her charm is undeniable.

Zac Efron, you’ve grown up before our eyes! No longer that “High School Musical” twink, you’re now a strapping young man, starring in Nicholas Sparks’ “The Lucky One,” as a soldier who returns from war and blah blah blah love story who cares? He’s shirtless and making sweet romantical love to some blond girl. But here? Here, he seems to be reaching for the gold that’s in his own pants while chatting on the phone, which makes us wonder — just who is Efron talking to?
So what if her film “Mirror Mirror” is getting so-so reviews and is being demolished by “The Hunger Games” at the box office? Lily Collins is like, “I’m just going to rock out the Paris premiere of my Snow White movie in this gorgeous Zac Posen floral gown like it don’t even matter.” That’s the correct attitude, lady.
Lily Collins is the star of the new fairy tale-inspired movie “Mirror Mirror.” She’s also the daughter of adult-contempo singer Phil Collins, but thankfully didn’t get his looks. Instead, she’s got a total Audrey Hepburn vibe, working the red carpet in a variety of gorgeous designer looks. Lily seems to love Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel — and exudes a more classic vibe then some of her young contemporaries (ahem, Miley Cyrus). Check out some of our favorite Lily Collins’ red carpet moments after the jump!
The premiere of “Mirror Mirror,” one of two upcoming Snow White movies, was a lavish affair with all kinds of costumed characters wandering the red carpet. Lily Collins (pictured at left), who plays Snow White, showed up in a gorgeous gown and raspberry lips, while Julia Roberts, who plays the evil queen, wore a basic black suit with a pink blouse underneath. There’s nothing wrong with her outfit, per se, and she certainly looks glowy and gorgeous, but she seems a bit dressed down for such a fun, colorful event (I mean, seriously, check out the guy on the far left–he’s killing it!). So, what do you think? Is Julia’s look simple and chic or just plain boring?
Vanity Fair releases its Hollywood issue annually, but this year’s cover is unique in that it is the first of its kind to be shot by famed photog Mario Testino. His technique translates beautifully to the cover, though it’s not immediately apparent that it’s his work. The 11 young actresses featured are dressed impeccably, draped in silky pastels and exuding a sensuous, past-century boudoir air. Ever concerning, though, is the fact that hardly any of the starlets are recognizable. Aside from Rooney Mara, whose angular 1920s bob and sullen features make her easily identifiable, the rest of the girls bear little resemblance to, well, themselves. Keep reading »
Last week, Entertainment Weekly ran a first look at Lily Collins as Snow White in Tarsem Singh’s “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White,” which will also star Julia Roberts as the Evil Stepmother. Just a few days later, “Snow White and the Huntsman”—the Snow White movie starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron—got its moment to shine at Comic-Con. Now, these two Snow Whites are drastically different. Lily Collins is the classic beauty, while Kristen Stewart looks rugged and ready to fight. “It’s not a little girl sitting by a well with tweety birds telling her what’s going on,” explains director Rupert Sanders.
But the real question here is—why do the dwarves get no love? Keep reading »
