Personal Quote:

It took me a while to warm to the '20s costumes on Downton Abbey (2010). I love it when women accentuate their curves, and that era was all about hiding them. The shapes they wore then were in tune with female empowerment. Cutting off their hair and hiding their busts was a way of saying, 'We're equal to men!' See more »

Trivia:

She is a sixth cousin of U.S. President George Bush through her American grandmother. Lily's four-times-great-grandfather, Stephen Horton, was the brother of the president's four-times-great-grandmother, Sarah Horton (their parents were Comfort Horton and Joanna Wood). Lily is thus a sixth cousin, once removed, of the president's sons, President George W. Bush and Governor Jeb Bush. See more »
