Lily Collins is Westwood fan

Lily Collins "admires" Dame Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

The actress-and-model is the daughter of drummer Phil Collins and Jill Tavelman. She is also a fashion fan and was famously chosen by Chanel bosses to wear one of the luxury label's gowns at the prestigious 2007 Bal des Débutantes in Paris.

Lily has discussed her favourite designers.

"I have always admired Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. His death was a huge loss, not just for the fashion world: he was a great person," she explained in Italian Flair magazine.

"I also love Chloë Sevigny, one of the few celebrities who designed a fashion line that truly reflects herself. And she loves vintage, just like me."

Lily was picked by Spain's Glamour magazine in 2008 as their International model of the year and appeared on the magazine's cover in August 2009.

The 22-year-old star says modelling is a great way to access the work of the world's most esteemed fashionistas.

"Well it's a great way to spend a day playing with the clothes of my favourite designers," she enthused.
