Lily Collins, our super-stylish October cover star, reveals exclusively to Marie Claire the people she looks up to the most. From old Hollywood actresses to her family, Lily tells us how they’ve inspired her
'Her timeless features, elegance, and charm will always represent the epitome of grace. She was not only an incredible actress but her charity work with UNICEF was so inspiring and admirable.'
'I greatly respect her transition from a young star into the tour de force actress we know her as today. She transforms herself not only in every film she does but also in her fashion.'
'The man is a genius. He is not only one of the smartest, most creative, inspiring businessmen and designers I've had the pleasure of working with but also one of the warmest, funniest, most charming. His eye and design aesthetic is impeccable.'
'I admire everything she does. She does it all with such class and grace. Whether it's raising three beautiful daughters or transforming herself in every film she does. When I'm watching her on screen I don't see Meryl. I see a completely new human being who is so utterly captivating and moving.'
'She always taught me to experiment with fashion and embrace myself for who I am. She taught me that the "quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful."'
