Lily Collins: Reviving Snow White

Lily Collins may be known to many as the daughter of singer Phil Collins, but this up-and-coming actress is landing some impressive roles in her own right. While Kristen Stewart is set to portray Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, Lily captured the part of the iconic character in the anticipated The Brothers Grimm: Snow White. She's in pretty good company since Julia Roberts is set to play the Evil Queen and Armie Hammer will serve as her Prince. She’s also in the upcoming movie Abduction starring alongside another Twilight veteran, Taylor Lautner.

Despite her current lack of notoriety, this 22-year-old has been making red carpet appearances for a few years now. She even popped up at Herve Leger's show during Mercedes-Benz IMG New York Fashion Week Fall 2009. She looked sophisticated but still age-appropriate in a black striped coral creation the designer crafted for the Max Azria Spring 2009 collection. Later that day, Lily opted for another bold color statement in a turquoise Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 frock for Patricia Field's birthday celebration at Amalia in New York City.

It was a jet black Topshop lace bodycon dress amplified by black and gold sandals also from the retailer for the Serpentine Gallery summer party in London in July 2009. Lily's Chanel sage-colored gown featured a stunning golden shoulder brooch which really made the rising star standout at the 2010 Met Gala celebrating the opening of the American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity exhibition in May 2010.

Clad in a plaid shirt and skinny jeans, Lily dropped some change into a Beverly Hills parking meter in February. She pulled the funds from her maroon studded Alexander Wang bag. For the 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles earlier this month, Lily sported a Dolce & Gabbana sleeveless dress paired with Christian Louboutin heels, Alexis Bittar jewels, and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Since both Snow White films are set to be released next year, we’ll just have to wait and see if Lily really is the fairest of them all.
