ASOS Magazine October issue featuring coverstar Lily Collins

Go back

Lead roles in big films, selfies with Karl Lagerfeld, weekends in Ibiza with her BFF…This is Lily Collins’ best year ever.

On taking on Love, Rosie:

Love Actually, Notting Hill, The Holiday – those sort of films are my favourites…it’s those awkward moments when you find yourself laughing. Films that don’t take themselves too seriously – I just fell in love with this one. It’s not like the portrayal of a teen mum you see in a reality TV shows, it’s not about a girl on a downward spiral, it’s about how she embraces what has happened and grows. She doesn’t become a victim.”

On girl power and her friend BANKS:

“I just saw her in Paris because we went to the Chanel couture show together. I caught her concert at an underground bar afterwards. She’s the sweetest, so nice and then she gets up on stage and she’s like a goddess of woman power – it’s really inspiring watching her.”

On Karl Lagerfeld and asking for a selfie:

“I went to say hello, and I wasn’t going to ask for a photo with him, but then he asked for one with me! I was dying! It was at the Chanel show in Dallas where we clicked…that show was unbelievable – I rode a mechanical bull in couture, which was amazing! He was funny and lovely and I got to spend quality time with him. After that, he asked if I would be the face of Barrie.”

On her style:

“I own very few designer pieces, I want to collect them over the years. I’m not the type of person who buys a whole collection when it comes out. I want to make sure it’s something I’m going to love for a while. I get lent things, so experiment with my style that way, but ultimately I spend most of my money on vintage and high street.”
