Lily Cole Wants More Color
She might love her curves, but Lily Cole hates her “mottled purple” legs.
The red-haired model would love to have a natural tan, but admits that bronzed limbs might look strange teamed with her pale face and tresses.
“I would like better coloration on my legs. A permanent olive, perhaps—although that might be a bit extreme with my coloring. But I would definitely like a little less of that English, mottled purple thing that makes it necessary to wear tights all the time.”
Lily’s big modeling break came in 2003, when she starred in Italian Vogue. Her slim physique was widely commented upon, forcing her mother to deny rumors she was too thin, but she has been sporting a seemingly fuller figure of late.
“Yes, actually if you had asked me a few years ago what I would change about my appearance I would have wished for boobs—but I got those!” the 21 year-old said.
The model-turned-actress has grown to love her unusual appearance, but admits she was not always so happy to stand out from the crowd: “When I was younger. I can’t remember what it was specifically—my height, my hair or just features I didn’t like. I was like most teenagers. I wanted to look more conventional—to just be the pretty girl in school.”
