There is no denial that Lily is killing it with her fashion choices, and so is Cecelia Brady– The character she plays in Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, set to debut July 28 on Amazon Prime Video. Teaming up with Emmy-winning costume designer Janie Bryant, the duo chats with WWD about Cecelia’s thirties-era look!

Lily Collins had it easier than most imagining what life would be like for an ambitious scion of a showbiz family navigating the professional, personal and gender politics of Thirties Hollywood. In her new Amazon series “The Last Tycoon,” loosely based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished novel, she’s never far from the storied history that pervaded her youth.

Along with being a second generation star, the daughter of pop icon Phil Collins has been time-traveling to Tinseltown’s Golden Age since she was a kid, her mother Jill has long been involved in preserving, restoring and showcasing historical sites in the Hollywood region, including Beverly Hills’ grand 90-year-old Greystone Mansion, which serves as her character Celia Brady’s family home.

“I grew up spending a lot of time there; I used to run around the hallways doing homework and watching people in the house,” Collins laughs. “So now it’s like it’s gone full circle.”

Collins chatted with WWD just before shooting a scene set during the 1937 Academy Awards ceremony — in the same Biltmore hotel ballroom where those actual Oscars were presented. “It plays with your mind,” she says. “You look around and everyone’s spotlessly perfect of-the-period, and you really forget that you have a cell phone waiting for you at your chair.”

Chief among the series’ extravagant effects is the lavish wardrobe concocted by costume designer Janie Bryant. “Celia’s the fashionista, really, of this show, and Janie gets to throw lots of different things on me,” Collins says. “My Oscar dress is pretty amazing. It’s a lilac silk tiered number in the back with this amazing sequined capelet.”

Hello Lilyians! The New Potato has just published an article and photoshoot featuring Lily and we are absolutely in love with all of it! During the interview, Lily speaks about food, beauty, The Last Tycoon and much more!

We sat down with the beauty Lily Collins (#eyebrowgoals) – star of Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, which comes out tomorrow – to discuss everything from restaurants, beauty routines, body image and Renaissance fairs. The actress shared her love of tea (she prefers it to coffee), her affinity for gluten-free baking, and her dream dinner party (Audrey Hepburn makes an appearance). We know you’ll be as smitten with this interview – and her authentic nature – as we are; we’d even forgo our coffee-addiction if it means tea time with Collins…

From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

I love oatmeal, so in the morning I would probably have some form of oatmeal with cinnamon and vanilla. I like it kind of sweet, so it tastes like a treat – like a dessert with some fruit. For lunch, I would probably try to keep it lighter, like a salad with grilled fish or a piece of salmon with some quinoa or a grain. I always have a Chai or Earl Grey tea at some point during the day. I don’t drink coffee; I’m a tea girl , that’s my form of caffeine. For dinner, I’m a huge sushi fan. I also love a really good Indian Curry. What I love the most about going out with my friends for dinner, though, is that they’ll surprise me, and we’ll go somewhere new. Sometimes, the surprise meals are the best because you can’t pre-plan your menu. For dessert, I’d go to Salt & Straw; I just went there for the first time, and they have the most amazing vegan coconut Stracciatella. I like places that have options. My ideal day would, honestly, be having someone take me out to experiment with different things.

How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

Working out is my private time. I love sweating to get out your emotions; I always feel better afterwards, always more energized and just more clearheaded. I always drink a lot of water, too, to really purify. I sometimes try to meditate with music, or just have quiet time. It really allows me to center myself and get away from the craziness of work and the city. I really believe in laughing and smiling a lot. I think it’s really important, because when you feel the most confident and the most happy, that’s when you feel your most beautiful and look your best. I always say that a smile is your best accessory.

While promoting To The Bone, which is out now on Netflix worldwide, Lily Collins and director Marti Noxon were interviewed for LA Times where they spoke about Lily losing weight for the movie, their personal experiences and more. Along with the article, which you can read bellow, two outtakes have been added to our gallery, one featuring Lily and Marti while the other is a new outtake from the photoshoot Lily did for LA Times last year.

 

Lily Collins was struggling to put the weight back on. She’d whittled herself down to a skeletal frame to play an anorexic young woman in “To the Bone” — a risky prospect, considering she was only a few years into recovery after her own battle with an eating disorder. She’d been warned by medical experts and nutritionists that regaining body mass would be difficult, both physically and psychologically. But she didn’t anticipate that the experience could affect her standing in Hollywood, too.

Just a few months after filming wrapped on “To the Bone” — which hit Netflix on Friday — Collins was set to begin promoting her role in Warren Beatty’s “Rules Don’t Apply.” It was a big moment in her career, and she even ended up earning a Golden Globe nomination for her turn in the film. That’s when her publicity team came forward to give her some hard news.

“Magazines were concerned about my appearance and didn’t want to put me in their publications because of how I looked at the time,” the actress recalls. “They said, ‘Even though she lost it for the movie, it’s putting out an image that we don’t feel is positive for our readers.’ I was blown away by their resistance, but in an almost great way. I have to commend them for it. It was a real a-ha moment for me, that this could start to affect my work. If I could have snapped my fingers and gained 10 pounds in that moment, I would have.”

Nearly a year later, the 28-year-old is back in a healthy place, even landing on the cover of Shape Magazine wearing a bikini. But her journey with “To the Bone” shed a light on the industry’s relationship with body image — a complicated push-pull that’s still unfolding as the film is released to viewers this weekend.

While promoting Okja and To The Bone about two weeks ago, Lily stopped by the MTV studios where she chat with Josh Horowitz. While we had no confirmation at the time, we speculated that she would be making an appearance on Happy Sad Confused… And we were right! The brand new episode of MTV’s podcast was released earlier in which Lily speaks about the two Netflix movies, her book and much more! You can listen to it bellow.

Lily Collins has never been one to waste time. As a teenager she flirted with a career in journalism, but decided to double down on her passion for acting and things have been paying off in a big way ever since.

Since her film debut in The Blind Side, she’s led fantasy films like Mirror Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, but 2017 will likely be the year she’ll look back on as a game changer.

In this, her first visit to “Happy Sad Confused,” Collins talks openly about growing up as the daughter of a pop icon (Genesis’ Phil Collins), why she decided to open about intensely private subjects like an eating disorder in her book Unfiltered, and what it was like to audition for a Star Wars movie.

She also discusses her roles in three new projects, two films on Netflix, To The Bone, a candid film about recovery from Marti Noxon, Okja, a wild adventure from Bong Joon-ho, and the Amazon series, The Last Tycoon.

Hello Lilyians! Lily is on the cover of the July/August issue of Shape and doesn’t she just look gorgeous?! Fair to say Lily is slaying 2017 with her amazing photoshoots, this one being no exception.

In this exclusive first look at the July-August 2017 issue of Shape magazine, Lily Collins is once again getting candid about her past struggles with eating disorders.

“I never dreamed I’d be posing in a bikini on the cover of Shape. It’s a complete 180 for me. It’s a magazine about what it means to be healthy,” the actress reveals.

“I used to see healthy as this image of what I thought perfect looked like—the perfect muscle definition, etc. But healthy now is how strong I feel. It’s a beautiful change, because if you’re strong and confident, it doesn’t matter what muscles are showing. Today I love my shape. My body is the shape it is because it holds my heart.”

The Mirror Mirror star didn’t start out as an actress but instead, took the role of a journalist.  At age 15, she began writing and corresponding for Elle Girl U.K., and in 2008, she appeared as a reporter for Nickelodeon on the U.S. presidential election.  She later continued her writing career for Cosmo Girl and the Los Angeles Times Magazine.  Her journalism background helped share her story which led to writing a book.

“In October 2015, when I got the book deal, I wasn’t filming anything. Then I got flooded with work. People told me to put the book on hold, but I knew it would be worth it to keep going. And as luck would have it, To the Bone came up” where Collins will be playing a woman sent to a rehab center for her eating disorder.
