Lily Collins covers Bazaar Australia in Chanel: fabulous or fug?


Actress Lily Collins is the cover model for the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar Australia. The 26-year-old, whom you may remember from her roles as Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side and Snow White Mirror Mirror (a/k/a the “other” Snow White movie), looks otherworldly in a netted, ruffled and sequined dress by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. The whole outfit looks a little stuck in the 80s for my tastes (it could be the fingerless gloves too), but I love the makeup and slick hairdo.

The 26-year-old is the daughter of rock god Phil Collins (whom you might remember from Genesis if you’re like me, or from that song Mike Tyson air drummed to in The Hangover if you’re a young’un) and American model Jill Tavelman. Lily told the magazine that her model mom is the reason she’s such a fashionista, claiming, “It’s funny because I also have fashion in my blood.” She goes on to say, “My mother’s family owned a shop called Tavelman’s on Wilshire Boulevard. They designed suits and clothing for so many actors her in town, starting in the 1930s. My mom would help out in the store when she was little. So it’s nice to share these passions with my family.”

Lily loves to talk fashion, but tries to keep mum about her love life – which is hard to do when you’re romantically linked to Nick Jonas. But Nick isn’t saying much either. When grilled about the relationship on the red carpet at a pre-Super Bowl party this past Friday, Nick kept his comments short. A reporter for Entertainment Tonight asked the 23-year-old singer if he could comment on the relationship to which Nick simply replied, “I can’t at all. At all.” Nick might have pleaded the fifth as he’s been recently seen with 36-year-old Kate Hudson. It’s always the quiet ones, isn’t it?

Nick’s romantic life is starting to resemble an old Three’s Company episode where Jack ends up with two dates scheduled for the same night. There are definitely some levels to his love (see what I did there?) You do have to give it to Nick though, as he’s already covered his bases for Valentine’s Day. He told E! News why he wasn’t celebrating the special day, telling the reporter, “It’s right before the Grammys, so there’s a lot of stuff happening in L.A., so I’ve gotta concentrate.” How convenient, huh?

    She has such a lovely face, but that dress is appaling. I still LOVE the Stella shoes she’s wearing on the last picture.

    Does she do showmances, or are all her realtionships for real?

    • Luxe says:

      I actually really dig Chanel’s Spring RTW collection. I think this dress works on her. She’s kind of meh but she looks really pretty here.

  2. Maum says:

    I don’t get her.

    And I know it’s her thing but I wish she would sort out her eyebrows. By all means keep them thick but they are so bushy they distract me from the rest of her face.

    • ell says:

      she clearly has some hormone problem, since it’s clear in candids and not airbrushed pics that she has lots of hair on her face as well. it might just be easier for her not to pluck her eyebrows if that’s the case.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        I have a lot of hair on my face as well, but don’t have any hormone problems. Some women are just hairier than others, it’s genetic.

    • Nancy says:

      Big brows are supposed to be in now, but not like you glued on an inverted man’s mustache over your eyes. Hairy scary

    • tealily says:

      Aw, I think she’s gorgeous! And I LOVE her brows! Mine are tiny and thin. Hers are so dramatic!

  3. ell says:

    i mean, she’s pretty, but it would be nice to give magazine covers to people who actually have a job. i’m sick of children of famous people who do nothing of value.

  4. rosie says:

    Those eyebrows take over her face, they are all I see. She is very pretty tho and I loved her Snow White movie with Arnie Hammer.

  5. CornyBlue says:

    I adore her eyebrows and think it stops her from being the 1000th cookie cutter pretty girl in Hollywood. That said she definitely cannot act and is also not super good with the hustling and your fathers name can only take you this far.
    She is my Leanna Stark because she looks so much like Maisie Williams but it seems that was not meant to be.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I think she was good in Love, Rosie. She should stick to rom-coms and she will be fine.

    • Tiny Martian says:

      I think she’s stunning and her eyebrows are part of the reason. Don’t know why people have an issue with a woman having a strong brow!

      • Jay says:

        Strong brows are everything. Mine are naturally sparse and I try to pencil them in but it’s just not the same :/

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I like the first dress ok as a concept. It would be impossible wear, though. You would be bumping into yourself all day. The second shot is beautiful. So, I guess really heavy brows are back? Not good news for me as mine as blonde and medium. I like a strong brow, but hers are a little too strong? Or maybe I’m just not used to it yet. Why is she wearing that little sack at the end? Are those platform sneakers? Ouch. Is that how she dresses herself? Hmm.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Call me crazy, but I like her outfit in he last picture. Especially the shoes.

    • LAK says:

      That last picture is giving major 80s de ja vu.

      I think I had that entire outfit and wore it with pride as a tween in the 80s. With rags in my hair, cleopatra eye make up, high tops instead of her sneakers or chelsea boots, fingerless gloves. And if pushed, knee length torn tights in the neon colour.

      Actually entire outfit would have been in various shades of neon.

  7. Bonnie says:

    The eyebrows are too much. Why are they a “thing”? This trend needs to be stopped asap. It’s hideous.

  8. serena says:

    I’m starting to like her since I’ve seen her in ‘Love, Rosie’. I also don’t mind the bushy eyebrows, it’s kinda her style and she looks cute anyway.

  9. Loo says:

    Which film is she promoting?

  10. Ange says:

    Eyebrows would be much better if she just spaced them a bit further apart. You CAN have it all Lily, just take a little off the middle!
