Lily Collins loves to ''take chances'' with her red carpet outfits, according to beauty expert Fiona Stiles.

The 27-year-old actress - who is the daughter of musician Phil Collins and his former partner Jill Tavelman - has been praised as a ''classic beauty'' who has ''incredible gamine features'' and is open to experiment with her wardrobe choices and beauty aesthetic for star studded events.

Speaking about the brunette beauty and her style, the make-up professional said: ''Lily is such a classic beauty with these incredible gamine features that merge so beautifully with that Old Hollywood glamour aesthetic - but in real life she's a really modern girl who likes to take chances with her red carpet looks.''

And Fiona felt she had the freedom to make over the 'Love, Rosie' star ''differently than any other client'' after she saw the black v-plunge gown Lily wore to the Vanity Fair after party following the 2017 Oscars on Sunday (26.02.17).

She explained: ''To approach her looks differently than any other client I've ever had. So when I saw the dress a week or so before the Vanity Fair party, I understood that it's decidedly art deco vibe would be supportive of a look with a modern edge to it.''

Fiona gave Lily an intricate winged eye liner and a deep berry lipstick for a ''little noir and extra glamorous'' look, although the make-up was very subtle and could easily go unnoticed.

She explained: ''I kind of love the subversive blink and you'll miss it element to the look. Like, if you aren't really paying attention, and looking her in the eyes when you're talking to her, you'll miss the whole point.

''That made it feel a little noir and extra glamorous. It's all really wonderfully collaborative.''

And Lily has admitted it was her ''favourite'' look ''ever''.

Fiona said: ''She [Lily] said it was maybe her favourite look ever, which just makes my heart feel so full and proud.''
