"Hi I’m Lily and I’m here at Lancôme’s BAFTA party. It’s my first event as Lancôme’s ambassador and I’m so excited, it’s so special to me."
It’s an absolute honor and privilege to have been chosen to represent the Maison Lancôme. […] I feel incredibly lucky to be included among the most inspirational women ambassadresses for one of the most prestigious brands in the world. It’s truly a dream come true.

I have some pieces from Topshop or from Warehouse from years ago that have stood the test of time, they are great staple pieces that I love. I’ve always mixed high street with higher end things. I want to feel that I’ve earned the higher end things.
Sunscreen is my beauty staple. It’s the be-all and end-all of your skin. I didn’t realise how important it was until I did Mirror Mirror. I had it on every day because they wanted that pale, pale skin. But also I’m British, right? I have sensitive skin and, if you don’t want to have wrinkles or sunspots, it’s so important to protect yourself, it’s a huge must-have
I don’t choose projects according to the idea of being a role model. To be considered as one, is definitely an honor. It’s something that I don’t think you really search to become a role model. Or at least I try to maintain my sense of self and choose roles that speak to me in some way and challenge me but in my everyday life staying true to what I believe in and being open and honest about it and if that is then I guess thought of as being a role model, then that’s definitely an honor to be thought of that way but it’s not like I search for roles that will allow me to be that.
"I grew up understanding the pros and cons of what you’re getting into and knowing what comes with your job. I like to keep my private life private, and then work is work. I feel so far I’ve had a really good balance with that."
I modeled for a little while and I was told so much, you know, ‘we need to change those, we need to fix those. It took me awhile to figure that out and then I’ve learned to embrace them. And I glad that I did because they might not have grown back had I changed them.
