From 2009 to Now: 53 Pictures Charting Lily Collins’ Style Evolution

Before Lily Collins was inspiring the wardrobes of twentysomethings with her American-meets-French style in Emily in Paris, there was something to be said of her own sartorial sense.
The British actor first emerged on the film and TV scene in 2009, and embraced ultra-feminine and girl-next-door style early on, which she has honed to make her signature since. Her early red carpet appearances witnessed her love for vintage fashion peek through in pieces that gave her looks an old-timey charm. Think dresses paired with tights, round-toed pumps, and lots of florals. As she took on a range of roles, her wardrobe was influenced accordingly. She took on an edgier approach to her style with leather ensembles while promoting the film The Mortal Instruments, and gravitated towards princess-like dresses and corseted dresses after starring in Mirror, Mirror. Collins has also made sure to venture away from her usual style at times by going incorporating masculine pieces in her look. For a Cartier event in 2012, the actor wore a black suit by Dolce & Gabbana with a chiffon blouse, and in 2015, wore a burgundy satin suit with a plunging black top.
Her penchant for dreamy gowns naturally led her to be a fan of Arab designers, particularly, Elie Saab. Who can forget the Lebanese couturier’s lilac ombré dress she wore in 2014 and made headlines in? His floor-grazing, embroidered pieces have been spotted on the star on a number of special occasions, and so have a couple of risqué numbers by Zuhair Murad. This has also made the actor’s public appearances ones to always keep an eye out for, especially at the Met Gala. While she had been walking the red carpet at the annual event for quite a few years, her attendance in 2018 is what cemented her as one of the best dressed at the gala.

Georges Chakra certainly knows how to create a show-stopping look. This week one of the Lebanese designer‘s decadent creations was seen on American singer and television show host Nicole Scherzinger, who looked breathtaking in a suit from Chakra’s Spring 2019 couture collection.
Scherzinger was seen in the statement outfit while promoting her recent hit show The Masked Singer. The star wore the white suit, featuring a plunging blazer with bold metallic detailing across the shoulders and sleeves, finished with a flowing train.
Georges Chakra‘s daring and striking designs have seen him established as one of Lebanon’s best designers, adored by some of the entertainment industry’s top talents. He has become a firm favorite among many Hollywood stars, including Jennifer Lopez, Lily Collins, Chrissy Teigen, Kate Beckinsale, and Jameela Jamil with his gowns frequently featuring on red carpets across the world, as well as showcasing at Paris haute couture fashion week.
American model Chrissy Teigen was recently spotted donning a tulle tiered skirt from Chakra’s Fall 2020 couture collection, at a rally for president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris’ election campaign, in Pennsylvania where her husband John Legend was performing.
Egyptian icon Yousra recently wore a stunning sequinned, ombrè gown from Chakra Spring/Summer 2020 collection, at the closing ceremony of the El Gouna Film Festival.
Due to the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and the tragic Beirut explosion in August, George Chakra did not show his recent Fall 2021 couture collection at the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode.  Instead, the designer presented his collection in a digital format that still captured his signature flair, including lace, velour de soie, and silk organza, mixed with playful ruffles and voluminous styles.
Looking back at many of Charka’s designs, Vogue Arabia highlights his best celebrity looks in the gallery above.

Harris’ white pant suit was particularly popular.
Current Vogue US cover star Harry Styles became the first man to top this year’s Power Dressers list thanks to his suave, standout style. While the Kate Middleton effect still seems to reign supreme as the Duchess of Cambridge was the only royal to feature on the same list.
Meghan Markle did however make it onto The Moments That Mattered thanks to her emerald green Emilia Wickstead dress which she wore during her final appearance as a senior member of the royal family at the Commonwealth Service in March. Searches for the London-based label soared by 286%.
Elsewhere, continuing to create excitement, in spite of its controversy, the Netflix hit series Emily in Paris was named as part of Lyst’s Screen Style moments of the year.

“I was reporting live from Obama’s inauguration,” explained the actor-producer. “I was about 19-years-old and it was freezing,” she added, noting that she was working as a reporter for Nickelodeon for Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration in January 2009. “I remember having so many layers on under that outfit and like three pairs of socks, but it was such a huge honor to be there and I remember feeling really proud. It was my first time voting and something I’ll never forget.”
3. Cannes Film Festival

Collins’ first and only trip to Cannes is one to remember. She attended the 2017 film festival for the Netflix film Okja, alongside castmates Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal. “It was such a magical experience, I always wanted to be able to walk those steps and go up that red carpet with my cast,” says Collins, who wore a Ralph & Russo gown for her Cannes debut. “That fashion moment for me, that white dress with the train, that was one for the memory books.”

While promoting the romantic comedy film Love, Rosie, Collins looked breathtaking in a gown by Lebanese couturier Elie Saab at the Rome Film Festival in 2014. “It was a dress I’ll never forget because the wind picked up so intensely as we got out of the car and thank goodness it was a dress that could handle the wind,” stated the star. “In fact, I think the wind made it even more beautiful, so almost every photo had the dress had it kind of billowing in the wind and all the ombre colors really looked beautiful,” she added.
5. Enchanting Emily

Playing Emily Cooper in the divisive Netflix hit, Emily in Paris, Collins got to wear many stylish outfits. However, she identified this bold green number as her personal favorite. “Emily’s character is bright, bold, and a little bit obvious and we tried to incorporate that into Emily’s clothing because it was the extension of her personality,” she explained. “This bright outfit was worn to one of the episodes where I go to an influencer’s luncheon. I just always smiled when I saw Emily’s outfits and this one was one of the ones I smiled at the most,” she added.
