When the creator of the iconic Sex and the City has a new series, and it’s set in Paris, guaranteed you will be paying attention to every fashion detail. Darren Star’s first Netflix Original, Emily in Paris, is très cool. Here are my top five fave fashion moments from the series along with details on each outfit.
Starring Lily Collins as Emily Cooper, the series is about a junior marketing exec from Chicago who is transferred to Savoir, a luxury marketing firm in Paris that needs a social media overhaul. No Darren Star project would be complete without his go-to fashion guru, Emmy-winning costume designer Patricia Field.
Patricia is one of my favorite designers, who serves as a consulting costume designer on Emily in Paris, alongside French costume designer Marylin Fitoussi.
Look at how excited Emily is, to get to work at Savoir in the series premiere, unfortunately, her new co-workers aren’t as thrilled about their new arrival. Here, she’s rocking an Eiffel tower shirt by Alice + Olivia, a cropped top by Re Done, and colorful low boots by Christian Louboutin. A super cute, fun, and stylish outfit that reflects Emily’s personality and energy.
My personal fave: The Black Cocktail Princess Ensemble
In Episode 102, “Masculin Féminin,” Emily goes to her first launch party in an outfit inspired by Sex and the City. A black tulle skirt is paired with a strapless black Alexandre Vauthier top, Christian Louboutin sandals, and a vintage purse. The skirt is a special tribute to Carrie Bradshaw’s tulle skirt in the series finale of Sex and the City, which is also set in Paris! I’M OBSESSED!
OO LA LA!
Episode 103, “Sexy or Sexist,” Emily looks adorable in a chic checkered jacket and shorts suit by Veronica Beard, a tank top and purse by Chanel, and shoes by Christian Louboutin.
Beautiful Swan Lake vibes
When Emily heads to the ballet to try to save an account, she wears this magnificent Christian Siriano dress with Agnelle gloves, shoes by Cosmoparis, head jewels by La Compagnie du Costume, complimented by a vintage fur and purse. Patricia Field thinks that Lily Collins is a “dead ringer” for Audrey Hepburn, and this ensemble in Episode 106, “Ringarde,” is an homage to Hepburn in Funny Face.
A work of art
In Episode 109, “An American Auction in Paris,” Emily has to model a dress by client Pierre Cadault that was donated to a fundraiser. Can we just take a moment? This gorgeous dress is a Haute Couture dress designed by Stephane Rolland Haute Couture. Amazing right?!
