When a woman once known the world over simply as “Posh” handpicks you to pose for Glamour magazine, you don’t say no. Such is the plum position actress Lily Collins finds herself in, thanks to former Spice Girl (and Glamour guest editor) Victoria Beckham.
We declared the 23-year-old part of our New Class of on-the-rise young actors last year, and with performances in “Abduction” and “Mirror Mirror,” Hollywood is definitely taking note. Next week, the beauty will begin filming on one of our most-anticipated adaptations: Cassandra Clare’s “Mortal Instruments” novel “City of Bones,” which also stars Jamie Campbell Bower and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, but in the meantime, we’ll just gawk at this beautiful spread of Lily in the September issue.
“I was so honored!” Lily said of being selected by Victoria. “I grew up adoring the Spice Girls. And you can’t touch her when it comes to fashion. She owns every outfit she wears. I don’t know how she handles all of those kids—and in heels!”
Being surrounded by beautiful women is nothing new for the actress. She does work in Hollywood, after all!
“With Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, Julianne Moore, and Jennifer Connelly, they weren’t fussy with hair and makeup,” Lily recalled. “They all exude this inner and outer beauty. I learned that no matter how big you get, it’s still important not to let anything go to your head.”
