LILY COLLINS Covers: Rollacoaster Magazine Autumn/ Winter 2020
From starting her career at the age of two in BBC drama Growing Pains to being nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in Rules Don’t Apply, Lily Collins has had a whirlwind of a career. Having made her big-screen debut playing Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side as well as starring across from Zac Efron in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, the Surrey-born, LA-bred actor has become a staple in the industry for her ability to step into any role thrown her way and her iconic brows.Now with her Sex In The City style show Emily In Paris shooting to the top of Netflix over the past weekend for its stunning fashion choices, beautiful locations and addictive modern-day fairy tale storyline, the star candidly breaks down the creation of the show, as well as answering our burning questions.
Lily was photographed and interviewed for The Laterals magazine. Check out the photos and interview below!

Bright Night Of The Soul is how I’d characterize my lasting impression of Lily Collins. Sitting down for a conversation with an actress comes with a few days of preparation. There’s scheduling, there’s research to be done, and for me, it ends with the magic of somehow, after perusing countless interviews, and archived stories, of trying to pinpoint who my subject truly is outside of their big and small screen counterparts. The truth is, the celebrity interview is one of infinite outcomes. None of them lend themselves to predictability. Will they be reserved? Will she be giving? Who is she, really?

Not to mention the dream of working with Patricia Field on Emily in Paris.
COVETEUR – Patricia Field is known for her amazing costumes in fashion-favorite films, from Sex and the City to The Devil Wears Prada to Confessions of a Shopaholic, each of which take a person on a fantasy-inducing sartorial safari through unexpected pattern combinations and ostentatious yet modern silhouettes. So when Lily Collins got the offer to work with not only Field but also Darren Star, creator of Sex and the City and Younger, she was immediately hooked on what she calls “a golden nugget.”
Their new show, Emily in Paris, available on Netflix as of October 2nd, is by no means the beginning of Collins’ fashion journey. The young actress has worked in films like Mirror, Mirror with corseted gowns and The Mortal Instruments with edgy, leather-filled looks. On the other side of the camera, she has the privilege of experimenting with the best that fashion has to offer on the red carpet and more.
The actress speaks to CR about her meta-Francophile experience filming her new Netflix show Emily in Paris
CR FASHION BOOK – When Lily Collins found herself on Avenue Montaigne in Paris just over a year ago it was not to kick off a week of catwalks and fashionable fêtes as per Septembers’ past. Fashion Week would go on indeed, but the actress would for once not be in attendance. Instead, Collins, who moved to the French capital for a few months for filming, had one only one show on her mind. Debuting today on Netflix, Emily in Paris brings the 31-year-old to the streaming screen as Emily, a Chicago millennial who is transferred to Paris temporarily when the marketing conglomerate she works at acquires a boutique fashion firm. When she arrives to her new setting with an Eiffel Tower charm in tow, Emily is greeted with a grimace and what can only be described as a haute couture critique. The quick-paced, over-the-top series is a mix of Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City—and for good reason, it was created by TV legend Darren Star (SATC, Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place) with costume design by the incomparable Patricia Field. (In fact, Emily uses Field’s own vintage camera-themed iPhone case throughout the entire show as her signature.) Here, Collins speaks to CR about relocating to the City of Love, how the lines between the show and real life blurred, and what she’s learned about social media.
