Lily Collins Covers Fashion April 2012

Posted Wednesday March 7, 2012 6:47 PM GMT

With her new movie "Mirror Mirror" set to hit theaters on March 30th, Lily Collins continued her press efforts by nabbing the cover of the April 2012 issue of Fashion magazine.

The soon-to-be 23-year-old actress donned designer dresses from the likes of Elie Saab and Oscar de la Renta for the elegant spread lining the pages while chatting about everything from her Snow White role to remaining grounded thanks to her mother.

Highlights from Miss Collins' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Fashion!

On her fabulous 'Mirror Mirror' wardrobe:
"I saw all these dramatic, colorful, amazing outfits and I thought, 'Wow, Julia's so lucky.' And then they started bringing them in, and I said, 'Is this for me?' The first outfit took 25 minutes to get into, and when I looked in the mirror I got teary-eyed."

On the action she enjoyed on-set:
"I was sprinting through this huge room of trees, in my ball gown, sword fighting, going up cliffs. When the crew brought their kids onto set, they would see me and start crying. They were like, 'Blanche Neige!'"

On making it in Hollywood on her own:
"I never wanted to give people a reason to say I only got something because of that [her famous dad]. I wanted to feel confident in myself and be able to take the rejection, and not have someone make a phone call for me."

On her mother keeping her grounded:
"In the '80s, she wore Yohji Yamamoto and Vivienne Westwood, and then she mixed it with vintage and she'd throw in Alaia. She taught me that it's all about the thrill of the hunt. If you don't want to look through that pile, probably no one else has, so the coolest thing is in that pile."
