Lily Collins goes graphic

Lily Collins' hairstylist has revealed the inspiration behind the star's slicked back style at the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film.

The 24-year-old actress wowed at the Los Angeles premiere of new movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones earlier this week. Lily wore a daring Cushnie et Ochs frock which featured on-trend cut-outs around her waist and décolletage.

The beauty's hairstylist Mara Roszak has revealed the inspiration behind the star's pinned-back 'do.

“Lily wore an incredible leather structured dress," Mara explained to Beauty High. “I knew I wanted the hair to have a graphic feel with lots of shine.”

To create the slicked back style Mara began by sectioning Lily’s hair "deep to the side" and applied Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice before "blow drying the hair straight."

She then flat ironed the star's tresses to create an "extra sleek" look before applying Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel to "tame flyaways and give an extra boost of shine".

The sides of Lily's hair were slicked back with gel before being pinned back from the sides, with the back section left down.

To complete the look and "give it hold", Mara finished with a spritz of hairspray.

Lily teamed her red carpet look with ivory Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and H. Stern jewels, while her make-up was kept vampy and dramatic.

The brunette star - who is famed for her statement eyebrows - kept her eye make-up smokey in hues of brown and champagne, while her lips were given a hint of sex appeal with a slick of dark berry colour.
