Lily Collins in Stella McCartney in London

Posted on August 19, 2013

Lily proves her fashion bona fides once and for all.


Lily Collins at the ITV Studios in London, England in a Stella McCartney dress.

She’s wearing a ridiculous Stella McCartney dress and she looks gorgeous. If that’s not a fashionista, what is?

That is some damn face.

      Girl looks gorgeous but that dress is FUG!

      • Introspective

        literally coming on here to say the same. lily’s face is arrestingly beautiful. and it does the heavy lifting cause that dress is pure fuckery.

        what the fuck is going on with those hips??? stella stop playing with daddy’s money while ruining good fabric and find a real talent.

      • terpsichory

        I just wanted to tell you that I heard that scream in Brando’s voice, so thanks for that.

        Collins is unreal. I first thought this was a real photo shooting.

    • Emily Smith

      She won so many genetic lotteries.

      • Nikko Viquiera

        i think she won them all!bitch.

      • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

        Some girls have all the luck!

      • rkdgal

        And considering that her dad is Phil Collins, those were not odds stacked in her favor!

        • MsMajestyk

          You mean against all odds?

          • rkdgal

            [facepalm] guess I Missed Again on that one. But You Ought to Know…

            • Lanus

              Um. SUSSUDIO, BITCHES! (I’m not as good at this as the rest of you, so someone should just Take Me Home.)

        • marlie

          Really?! I had no idea! I think I might even love her more now.

      • kim bunchalastnames

        ya, you know? she’s the closest thing in 60 years to even a suggestion of audrey hepburness. if only the hollywood curse doesn’t derail her trajectory.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      Whew, I’m relieved. I was afraid I was about to like two Stella dresses in a row. My world view was in the balance. But no question that Lily looks cute, even in that thing with the attached saddlebags.

      • StellaZafella

        Snow White In Satin Saddle Bags…that’s gotta be inspirational for something!

        • formerlyAnon

          There must be a Nights in White Satin play to be made, we just aren’t seeing it yet.

        • Little_Olive

          For RuPaul. Now I want to see it.

    • flamingoNW

      Yep, she looks very pretty

    • Emily Giovanni

      Her outfit could be amazing, but I am too distracted by her incredible hair and makeup to notice.

      • kimmeister

        They are amazing indeed! She looks so much better with a lighter lip, so that her eyes get all the focus.

    • gabbilevy

      She’s insanely gorgeous. Without those satin hip flounces, the Stella dress might have even been passable. Still, she’s werqing it.

    • SewingSiren

      The dress works as an interesting foil to her beauty.

      • Lilak

        That’s *exactly* the way to put it!

    • Qitkat

      This deep navy is a gorgeous color on her, with her fair skin and lovely brunette hair. And the leopard pumps are an awesome touch.

    • alyce1213

      Fuckin’ Stella can’t quit that curve thing, can she? The saddlebags are a travesty.
      It’s true, Lily Collins transcends this shittery with her presence and beauty.
      I get a very strong ’60s Audrey Hepburn vibe from her, especially in these shots.

      • Not applicable

        a little Marlo Thomas mixed in, no?

        • alyce1213

          Aaah. Yes, there is definitely a physical resemblance to Marlo (who I LURVE).
          But I think it’s more her sophisticated, worldly fashionista ways that sing Audrey Hepburn – to me, anyway. She seems to handle it all really well for such a young woman.

    • random_poster

      Her face/hair are so beautifully focus-pulling that it almost wouldn’t matter what ridiculousness falls below her neck. Lily wins!

    • Jessica Smith

      I feel like she’s an odd combo of Jenna-Louise Coleman and Nina Dobrev.

    • annabelle archer

      Good God man. She is painfully beautiful. That dress is not the silliest thing Stella has ever put out, but it ranks.

    • Sarah

      Not only is that dress stupid, but she had to roll up the sleeves of it. Lord, why bother? It’s just bizarre. But yes, she looks beautiful, despite the attempt to mask her torso in a deliberately weird dress.

    • crash1212

      I wouldn’t hate this Stella dress nearly as much as I do if it just didn’t have the hip-flounces. Lily does indeed look gorgeous. The girl is a savant.

    • Julie Chase

      That hair! I love it.

    • newleaf1

      This girl is modern Snow White. If Snow White dumped the dwarves, the prince and got her fashion on.

    • Stella Zawistowski

      Dammit, between Tennessee Williams and Stella McCartney, my name is poisoned forever.

      Love Lily’s face and hair, though.

      • StellaZafella

        Tru dat, hun – maybe…but the rest of us Stellas make up for it. ;>0

      • formerlyAnon

        Someone stone cold amazing and very dear to me was named Stella. There could be no better name, though the world can’t be expected to share my personal associations! ;-D

    • nannypoo

      That’s a strange little dress but she looks adorable in it. Great hair and makeup. She’s beautiful.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Her hair is truly fabulous. I didn’t even notice the weirdness of the dress with that face and that hair. I’m getting a Jean Shrimpton vibe. She’s a lot shorter, obviously, but the face and hair…

    • kmk05

      OMG everything is working for her here,dress notwithstanding. Her makeup and hair are PHENOMENAL, and she has legs to die for. And her skin, omg HOW. I think the fact that the dress is black minimises some of its ridiculousness.

    • StellaZafella

      I mean this as a compliment but – does this shot of Lily put anyone, besides me, in mind of the Breck Girls of the 1970’s?
      Beauty, youth, freshness and gorgeous hair.

      • conniemd

        Yes. And I am old enough to remember them!

    • Karen Belgrad

      Who purposely designs a dress with saddlebags? More importantly… why?

    • uprightcitizen

      The dress looks like a Project Runway also-ran … if the challenge was to make a dress for a funeral.

      • Laylalola

        Stella consistently makes the most God-awful … things for women to wear.

    • d4divine

      Is she going to take flight?

    • MoHub

      Maybe Stella’s new stepmother will tell her what schmatta means.

    • LaSylphide

      She does look cute, despite the odds. i could, however, do without the fishbelly white legs. What ever happened to stockings?

      • Garcia Loca

        She’s a pale girl embracing her paleness. I prefer that to orange tans.

        • Nancer

          I agree with you! I think that pale legs look just fine – and more natural than fake tans and pantyhose. Although I am still fond of a nice pair of tights….

        • Imasewsure

          Yes let’s line up Lily and Xtina and see who we prefer…. even Michael Kors would back you on the pale vs. orange (except for himself of course)

      • Imasewsure

        Yuck stockings… young and pretty doesn’t need stockings… plus she’s English so she’s basically “tan” in the UK anyway…

    • MaggieMae

      Officially developing a girl crush!

    • Laylalola

      Honestly, TLo nailed it — her Face, my God, that’s all I could see. I bet people who don’t read fashion blogs won’t even notice the Stella McCartney she’s wearing.

    • Glam Dixie

      Could someone please explain to me how Stella McCartney keeps getting her clothes on starlets backs? Why would this beautiful girl deliberately put this ass hattery on her body? 95% of Stella’s designs are pure what the fuckery.

    • sagecreek

      What’s with the flying buttresses?

    • mjude


    • Danielle

      She has princess hair. Jealous.

    • Nancer

      Her makeup and hair are killing me because it’s so darn perfect!

    • marlie

      I have a serious girl-crush on Miss Collins here. She can do no wrong. She looks stunning in this dress, and she has a breathtakingly beautiful face.

    • marlie

      I’m also detecting a little bit of Victoria Beckham. Are we sure that they’re not long-lost sisters?

      • Kimberlini

        My thought too…a young Vicky, especially in the close up shot.

        • Shawn EH

          Ditto, except not skinny enough, good job, Lily!

    • DominoEstella

      I love this dress on her. She’s always beautiful.

    • stubbornthoughts

      HOLY FACK. This is how I want my face looking on my wedding day, and that’s in less than 3 months, so thank you for supplying me with an amazing visual TLO (and Lily, and her makeup Buddha).

    • Ann VerWiebe

      That fourth pic looks like a Covergirl ad – and she’s not even trying!

    • decormaven

      Bringing it! That is full-on fashion diva to make Stella’s design work.

    • ashtangajunkie

      That is some gorgeous hair. And the face is spectacular.

    • prettybigkitty

      She looks gorgeous, but it’s still an ugly dress.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      She is absolutely flawless from the neck up.

    • ItsDicey

      Hair and makeup are perfection. Loathing the clunky shoes…and that dress! Ugh.

    • bellafigura1

      Are those built in clutch bags? Giant pockets? I don’t hate the dress, but I do find it confusing. Beautiful girl!

    • demidaemon

      You know, as usual, Stella goes one step too far. She had a perfectly fine dress and decided, “hey let’s add some ridiculous satin wing dings right at the hip. Just what every woman wants.” Shame on you Stella. Lily’s face is making it work, but her or her stylist should have taken some scissors to those things. Then this would be a WERQ, rather than an edit this, edit that, perfect tupe of outfit.

    • MilaXX

      She looks great. I love her hair color.

    • Lilyana_F

      Love her face. That is all.

    • WittyCism

      True Fashionista to make me want (however split second short) a ridiculous dress with built in moneybags!!

      Who is Stella making this for? Scrooge McDuck?

    • Meg Smitherman


    • anotherkate

      She is just so damn pretty. And poised as hell, from the look of her. Next time I get my eyebrows did I’m asking for a Lily Collins.

    • DamH

      She is working Stella McCartney like no other lady stars. Love her hair.

    • Beth513

      Her head looks amazing and she is working the shit out of that dress, she actually makes it look good.

    • KayEmWhy

      I LOVE IT! I wish I could see the back of the dress. She’s got that Bridget Bardo thing going on in the second photo. Little Pixie. (I can’t remember the french word – begins with a g)

    • Anniebet

      Impeccable, and in a McCartney dress? This girl is the real deal. Such a joy to have this young woman to give us all these pretty pictures.

    • conniemd

      I read Lily Collins in Stella McCartney and thought “no girl, what are you doing?” The dress is ridiculous with those satiny hip wings, but she still looks radiant.

    • cheekypinky


      She looks like a young Sophia Loren!

    • Peeve

      She is so lovely…

    • Tatiana Luján

      her hair and makeup look perfect!

    • Reality TV Casting

      PURE audrey from the neck up

    • SophieCollier

      I was thinking it’s a Stella McCartney dress that doesn’t suck! It’s kinda cute, actually. She look amazing!

    • NurseEllen

      And some damn hairstyle. She looks like Megan’s younger sister on Mad Men.

    • Sweetvegan

      What’s with all the Stella hate? I don’t like most of her designs, but this one is adorable! I’d be really curious to see it move. The satin bows look heavy, like they weigh down the hem of the top.

    • steeg of their own

      Her hair and makeup gays deserve a performance bonus. The little black dress look is very Breakfast at Tiffany’s on her, which is a phrase I never thought I’d write about something designed by Stella McCartney. WERQ it, Lily!

    • Aurumgirl

      Well, truthfully, she looks gorgeous from the neck up and from the mid-thigh down. The rest is just as ridiculous as it would be on anyone else.

    • TLJezebel

      That hair! Those legs! That face! WTF with that dress?

    • Samuel Joesph Donovan


      Love her right now.

    • A Shiny O’Connor

      If you can work the McWankey gimmick show, you’ve got chops, girl.

    • Cassidy Olsen

      Oh, to have eyebrows that are always on point. She looks gorgeous!
