Lily Collins

Over the weekend, I watched the thriller, Abduction, starring the delicious Taylor Lautner. I instantly became mesmerized with his gorgeous co-star, Lily Collins.



Lily, 22, is the American-raised daughter of soft rock superstar, Phil Collins. No offense to the little bald British music man, but his second wife, Lily's mother, must have been a knockout.



With her flowing chocolate brown locks and thickly sculpted eyebrows, Lily reminds me of a modern Brooke Shields. (Although the media has crowned her the next Audrey Hepburn).



Some of you may remember Lily as playing Sandra Bullock's teenage daughter in The Blind Side a couple years ago.



She also stars as Snow White in the much-anticipated Mirror, Mirror. Her co-star in that fairytale is another Hollywood movie queen, Julia Roberts.



Lily has been acting since she was two years old. Her parents divorced when she was five, and her American mother brought her to Los Angeles, where she was trained at the Youth Academy for Dramatic Arts.



But acting isn't her only passion.



The delicate beauty is also a journalist. As a teen, she wrote a column for Elle Girl, called "NY Confidential." She also wrote articles for Seventeen, Teen Vogue, and the Los Angeles Times magazines.



She majored in Broadcast Journalism at the University of Southern California.



Here are some photos of Lily from the upcoming Mirror, Mirror.







So, what do you think of Lily Collins?

ah she's so gorgeous! And by the looks of it, smart, too.

When I saw the preview to the Mirror Mirror I was like WHO is that girl? She looks odd. I like her in the other pictures you posted of her, but something in the movie she looks off. I dunno. I'm too critical of people perchance

Alexandria said...

She's seriously beyond gorgeous. And that picture of her with bangs makes her look exactly like Audrey. I'm so jealous of her good looks.

Bonnie said...

The young lady is definitely way up there on the gorgeousometer! By the way, I hope you can feel the good vibes I am sending your way.

xo, Bonnie

Where have I been? I can't believe I'd never heard of her before. She is so beautiful, one of the prettiest girls I've ever seen. I love all these pictures. I totally want those pink jeans she is wearing. I wish I had her hair! I also think its cool she is into journalism too. She sounds like a very accomplished woman. Thanks for posting this. I'm going to look out for her now.

Imogen said...

I just found out she is only two days younger than me which I think is kind of cool.

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

So basically, if you don't make it as the world's best journalist, you can always become the world's best talent scout! I had never heard of that talented and beautiful girl until I read this post. She should be thanking you Jenny ;-) Thank you for stopping by chez French Girl today and for your lovely comment. I am glad we "met" too! Hugs-- Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

HOLY COW what a stunner! can i grow up and look like her?

Nicole✗✗ said...

OH wow I think she is so cute!! I didn't realize she was Phil Collins daughter, that's kinda awesome.

I'm looking forward to seeing her in Mirror, Mirror. She definitely pulls the innocent look beautifully.

I think your analysis of her looking more like a young Brooke Shields is more accurate. : )

azu said...

She looks almost identical to Audrey in that picture of her with the yorkie! I love what you said about her mother being a knockout lol. Her mother must be gorgeous because Lily truly is.

I'm going to go watch the the "Mirror, Mirror" trailer now :)

Thanks again for sharing a great bio!

I totally love her, She as a kind of magnetic charm. And I love her eyebrows they give her a lot of character.

Audrey Allure said...

She's lovely! She's actually pretty down-to-earth as well. She used to have a blog at Uber, and was one of my first blogging friends - the site eventually shut down :(

I'm excited to see Mirror, Mirror though :)

lucillejoy said...

She's gorgeous, her hair is beautiful and I have serious eyebrow envy!

Movies on my Mind said...

No offence to Lily Collins, but I struggle to see what aesthetic elements she acquired from her father Phil. Like seriously, her dad is the spitting image of ‘Mr. Potato-Head’, but Lily is like way buff. Methinks Phil Collins must have decided to upgrade his gene pool by marrying someone way out of his league, therefore ensuring the ugly gene is obliterated from his bloodline forever. What we can conclude is that in order to improve one’s beauty DNA, one must be a rock star, and a millionaire.

I must say, all the good fortune Lily’s had in life has been aided by the Old Man’s rolodex contact list. He sent her to one of the most esteemed private schools in America and then sorted her out with a top agent. She has hardly had to claw her way out of the gutter. Still, she does look very fetching.

Ain’t you a sweetie Ms. Fabulous? Leaving such ego-boosting comments on my blog could get me to overestimate my writing abilities. (Writing for fun seems more enjoyable than trying to make a living out of it. I get the sense the day I start doing that is the day I’ll probably stop enjoying it.) A friend of mine read your comment and said I’d written it myself and invented the moniker of Jennifer Fabulous. That means he thinks you’re a figment of my imagination.

Brookelyn said...

This might sound strange...but she has amazing eyebrows!

Oh my goodness she is gorgeous...great style.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

She's much more striking than Brooke Shields and maybe even Audrey Hepburn.

I like your comment about Phil's second wife and tend to agree.
