Style Crush Saturday: Lily Collins

Style Crush:  Lily Collins
Known For:  Acting, Modeling
Style:  Vintage, Feminine, Classy

This week's Style Crush is the angelic Lily Collins.  Lily is an English-American actress best known for her role as Snow White in Mirror Mirror,  a movie with a modern twist on the old classic.  Although she was born in the U.K., Lily moved to Los Angeles when she was just five years old after her father, famous musician Phil Collins, and mother, Beverley Hills Women's Club President Jill Tavelman, split.  As a child, Lily performed at the Youth Academy for Dramatic Arts, but at the time, dreamed of becoming a journalist.  Pursuing her interest in journalism, Lily wrote a column for the British magazine Elle Girl and has also been published in Seventeen, LA Times Magazine, and Teen Vogue.  After graduating high school, Lily attended University of Southern California, majoring in broadcast journalism.  Through making appearances on the Nickelodeon show the Nick News with Linda Ellerbee: Kids Pick the President for journalism purposes, Lily found her way back to acting.  Since then, Lily has gone on to act in huge block busters like The Blind Side, Abduction, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and win the 2008 Young Hollywood Award: One to Watch.

Lily Collins may be best known for being an actress, but she has also made a name for herself in the fashion world.  From long ballgowns with sequins galore to skinny jeans and a tattered sweater, Lily always rocks a cutting-edge outfit with grace and beauty.  Although her style is always evolving and keeps getting even better, her trademark today is still her thick, defined eyebrows.  Some have even gone as far as to compare Lily's appearance with that of the late Audrey Hepburn, who was also famous for her dark brows.  After being born in the U.K., but raised in the U.S.A., Lily's style influence comes from both continents.  Never dull, never sloppy, Lily Collins is not only a movie star, but she's also a total fashionista.
