GLAMOUR UK – On- and off-screen BFFs Lily Collins and Ashley Park, AKA Emily and Mindy in Emily in Paris, talk to GLAMOUR’s Emily Maddick about the power, pleasure and pitfalls of friendship as they become our January cover stars.

Lily Collins and Ashley Park – co-stars on the wildly successful Emily In Paris – are unanimous: their friendship has taught them both to believe in themselves in ways that they never thought they could.

“Ashley’s a friend who makes you feel like being you is enough. She gives you what you need when you don’t even know it yourself,” Lily tells me, while Ashley reveals, “Lily has made sure that I understand my own value… she has believed in me in ways I didn’t believe I deserved.”

And these are not just the gushings of Hollywood actresses fawning over their peers, but legitimate testaments to a true and beautiful friendship fostered both on – and off-screen. As stars of the Netflix juggernaut that is Emily In Paris, Lily, 32, and Ashley, 30, have found themselves in a show that puts the trials and tribulations of female friendship front and centre of the action.

So, who better to front our January friendship issue?

We’re a long way from Paris when I meet Lily and Ashley on location for their GLAMOUR shoot, in a disused parking lot in sun-drenched downtown Los Angeles in November. And while this may be as far away from the Champs-Élysées chic environs we’re used to seeing the girls in, the fashion most certainly is not. LA super-stylist, Nicolas Bru, has called in haute couture from Giambattista Valli and eye-popping creations from Sonia Rykiel and Richard Quinn – all exquisite gowns that would make even Emily In Paris’s legendary costume designer, Patricia Field, swoon.

As the shoot progresses, Lily and Ashley’s chemistry is electric, their laughter infectious and they do not stop to draw breath; apart from, that is, when I catch up with them individually over lunch for their respective cover interviews…

When it comes to female friendship, Lily’s character Emily Cooper finds herself in a très sticky situation at the start of season two. (Spoilers incoming.)

Having learned that her dishy neighbour, chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) is leaving Paris – and therefore breaking the heart of his long-term girlfriend and Emily’s good friend and client, Camille (Camille Razat) – Emily finally succumbs to their chemistry and a ‘farewell’ night of passion. Only to discover the next day that Gabriel is staying in Paris after all. What transpires is Emily trying to make amends for her mistake while attempting to prioritise – and salvage – her friendship with Camille. It is brave to have the plot focus on a female protagonist who has betrayed her friend and I wonder what Lily’s own take is on this moral dilemma?

“Emily definitely has deep-rooted feelings and regrets about what happened because she does feel really badly about it,” says Lily. “And it wouldn’t cause her so much turmoil if she didn’t care. And so I think, whenever something affects me so deeply or troubles me, it’s because I care. And that’s a good thing, but it makes it way harder because when you’re conscious of something… and now you know you have to do something about it; what do I do?”

Lily agrees with me when I say that I found female friendship front and centre of season two.

“Emily ultimately really values her friendships. And [in] season two, she really leans into the female friendships, which is something that I really was excited about pursuing more of.”

Lily has been announced as the face of Cartier’s latest collection, Clash [Un]limited. Check out some photos in the gallery!

Advertisements & Campaigns > Cartier > Clash [Un]Limited (2021)

WWD – Cartier has tapped Golden Globe nominated actress — and star of “Emily in Paris” — Lily Collins as the face of the its Clash [Un]limited collection and the Double C de Cartier handbag.

The new campaign is the next chapter for Collins and the Compagnie Financière Richemont-owned fine jewelry brand, adding her to the fold of Cartier Ambassadors, which include Jake Gyllenhaal, Troye Sivan, Willow Smith, Maisie Williams and Jackson Wang, among others.

Both as an actress and an author, Collins has a long-standing personal relationship with the brand going back to childhood. “My mom always used to wear Cartier men’s watches when I was growing up,” she mused during a Zoom interview with WWD.

“I remember loving the oversized look of it on her wrist, and then for my 18th birthday, she gifted me a watch, saying it would be with me my whole life,” the actress said, “I just have these familial memories associated with the house.”

When the call came to front the new collection, Collins said she was a bit shocked. “It felt like part of this evolution of me growing up, it felt like an organic relationship that had been with me for so many years, but I never imaged that I would officially be a part of the family.”

Launched in 2019, the Clash de Cartier collection is the maison’s cool, youthful and edgy offering with three-dimensional spike-like studs, beads and clous carré. The Clash [Un]limited capsule collection — not yet seen by the public — expands on that narrative with an assortment of limited edition jewelry creations meant to shake up the conventions of fine jewelry. The capsule, set for launch in September, will feature spiked rings, bracelets and earrings using white gold, onyx, diamonds and amethyst, as well as two high-end watch styles offering the maison’s distinctly edgy takes on a timepiece.

“When it came to expressing the duality of the Clash [Un]limited jewelry, Lily Collins was the obvious choice,” said Arnaud Carrez, Cartier’s international marketing and communications director. “Unique and committed, Lily Collins embodies a new generation of artists who dare to reveal their different sides, sometimes classic and elegant, sometimes creative, sometimes even extravagant. In summary, people who do not limit themselves.”

W MAG – For W’s second annual TV Portfolio, we asked 26 of the most sought-after names in television to pay homage to their favorite small-screen characters by stepping into their shoes.

“I’m playing the most American character I’ve ever played,” says Lily Collins, the star of Netflix’s hit comedy Emily in Paris. “I’ve never felt more American, but in my real life, I feel very British. And yet I felt so disconnected from my European side, having to be Emily.” Collins is speaking from Paris, where she has begun filming season 2 of the series—which is coming off of a recent Emmy nomination that left her and her costar Ashley Park in bits. “[We] were together on set in my apartment when she read her phone and said, ‘Were we? Are we? We were nominated for the Emmys!’ ” the actor recalls. “We didn’t know they were being announced, and then we just started screaming and had to yell, ‘Cut!’ ” Collins, who was born in Guildford, Surrey, in the English countryside, might star in a Paris-based show as an American girl, but her roots, she says, are firmly planted in the U.K. This is part of the reason she chose to honor The Great British Bake Off for W’s TV Portfolio, in which she embodies judge Prue Leith—also, because she herself loves to bake. “There are these specific chocolate chip cookies that I make, which I’ve been asked many times for the recipe,” she says of her signature dessert. “Eight years ago, I started Googling ideas, and at this point, it’s all just based on memory and sight.” We’d like to think she’d do well against Paul Hollywood’s judging eye.

When was the first time you saw The Great British Bake Off?

I saw the show’s first season. I feel so at home in the English countryside, having grown up there, and I love any show about baking and cooking. I love being surrounded by the British accent, especially if I’m not in England; there’s something very nostalgic about it. I just watch every season, even when they were changing hosts. I can’t stop watching. I binge it.

Can you bake?

I do love baking. I see it as very therapeutic. I like to think of it as a bit of a puzzle piece, as well, because I bake a lot of gluten-free, vegan things, which a lot of the time people think sounds not so fun or gross, but I get such a kick out of making something with vegan chocolate, or more ingredients, and seeing if it works. And when my little brother told me that my cookies were absolutely amazing and he loved them and ate five, I told him it wasn’t real chocolate, and his mind was blown.

How did Emily in Paris come to you? How did you first get the project?

I saw Darren Star from across the room at a charity event years ago. I was with my mom, and I’m like, Oh my god, that’s Darren Star. I really wanted to say hi, but I was nervous. I just didn’t say anything. Cut to almost a decade later, I got the script for the pilot, which was the first two episodes combined. I thought, This is what I’ve been waiting for, this is the role, because I shot two episodes of the reboot of 90210 years ago, which, obviously, is Darren Star. I was the drunk girl, Phoebe, at prom who really wanted to be prom queen and ended up barfing in a toilet. I remember thinking, Oh my god, I love Grosse Pointe. I love Sex and the City. I love 90210, all of the above. I love Darren Star shows. So they brought me in to meet with Darren. We had a great chat. Then a couple of weeks later, I auditioned. I threw together a wardrobe from my closet. I had one of my best friends come over, and we planned this look of what we thought Emily would [wear]: a J.Crew white shirt with a cashmere vest on top, a tartan skirt—which might’ve been an old Abercrombie skirt that I still had in my closet—and boots. I looked very collegiate and like I was trying too hard. I really felt it was Emily—definitely not the Emily we’ve created, but it was something. I arrived, and I auditioned for Darren. I felt good about it, but you just never know. I just wanted it so bad. On my 30th birthday, I was on set in Alabama, shooting in a bunker underground, and Darren called me and said, “Would you like to be my Emily?” I was very confused, because I just hadn’t heard anything [until then]. And I was like, “Me? Really?” It was a very Emily reaction, now that I think about it.

Do you get to keep any of Emily’s wardrobe?

I wish. I did get sent the white orchard dress that I get splattered with paint on last season. I got a clean one—the designer sent me one with a pair of shoes, so I get to keep that for memory’s sake. But I think a lot of my new favorite outfits are from this season. The wardrobe even went up more, which I didn’t even know was possible. From last season, I go back and forth. The opera house look felt like it was such an iconic moment for her. I can’t help but reference the Eiffel Tower silk shirt, because I just felt like that, with the Mona Lisa hat, was a real tongue-in-cheek Emily moment. She embraces “more is more.” She’s shamelessly herself. And I feel like she’s always in on the joke, and that just perfectly represented that to me.

Have you thought about your wedding dress for your upcoming nuptials to Charlie McDowell?

As a fashion lover and a person who’s obsessed with looking [for my own wedding dress], it’s a fun thing to start Pinteresting. I’ve always loved [a] fairy tale [look], but fairy tale in a very classic way. I like whimsy, but I also really love a classic look. So it’s trying to combine all of that, and it’s not something that you take lightly—you want to make sure it’s just right. I didn’t grow up with the ideal image in my head of what it had to be, so it’s really fun to think about that as an adult.
