So you binged Emily in Paris. Whether you loved it or hated it, we can all agree that there were some epic fashion moments reminiscent of those from creator Darren Star’s Sex and the City.
For those who haven’t watched yet, the Netflix series’ main protagonist, Emily Cooper (played by Lily Collins), accepts a once-in-a-lifetime position to transfer to her marketing firm’s Paris location for 12 months. Her boyfriend decides to stay in Chicago (a breakup ensues), so the fashion marketing pro essentially trades him for a designer-filled wardrobe.
American fashion designer Patricia Fields is responsible for Emily’s buzzworthy ensembles. The legendary stylist is also the mastermind behind costumes in Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada—many outfits of which we consider some of the best in film history. Fields brings her expertise to the new Netflix show, dressing the American transplant in daring looks worthy of conversation.
Some may argue that the Emily in Paris lead’s outfits are far from perfect, but it’s hard to disagree that they’re captivating from head-to-toe. The social media expert loves statement-making color, bold prints, and clashing patterns that somehow, someway, work. Dutiful fans of Fields’ work have even picked up on the designer’s odes to Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn.
But the Savoir employee’s not the only fashionista in Emily in Paris. The marketing exec has equally fashionable friends: Mindy Chen and Camille (played by Ashley Park and Camille Razat, respectively). Mindy, like Emily, loves eye-catching prints and eclectic pairings. Camille, on the other hand, dons more low-key looks that are super minimalist in comparison.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite fashion moments from the hit show. Keep scrolling to admire the Emily in Paris cast’s style. Look out for pieces designed by Christian Siriano, Virgil Abloh, Stéphane Rolland, and more.
Collins’ character attends an influencer event wearing an eye-catching green jacket from the Chanel Cruise 2020 collection. She went all out with accessories to match.
Wearing See by Chloé
Camille (Emily’s friend, who she’s kinda-sorta caught in a love triangle with) had several standout style moments, but this one takes the cake. Here, she’s wearing a checked woven mini dress from See by Chloé with a sheer, balloon-sleeved blouse from Zara underneath.
The marketing exec is no stranger to statement-making color and prints. The fashion-lover is all smiles in an asymmetrical silk midi skirt designed by Ganni, paired with the designer’s matching top. She tied the look together with a waist-cinching belt.
Wearing Christian Siriano
We’d be lying if we said that his Audrey Hepburn-inspired moment didn’t take our breath away. Her off-the-shoulder gown is from Christian Siriano’s Pre-Fall 2019 collection and her crystal-embellished pumps are from Cosmoparis.
The Savoir employee donned a fuchsia coat by Kenzo, which she styled with flowers to match and a timeless Chanel bag.
Wearing Essentiel Antwerp and Aigle
For a tour of Camille’s vineyard, the social media guru opted for a cute and casual ensemble. Here, she’s pictured in a color-blocked sweater by Essentiel Antwerp. She styled the look with black pants, a light pink beanie, and yellow rubber boots by French footwear brand Aigle.
While indulging in croissants with Emily, the nanny wore a floral wrap dress from IRO with plenty of accessories, including layered necklaces, a gold bracelet, earrings, and a wide-brimmed pink hat.
Wearing MSGM and Kate Spade
For a last-ditch effort to convince Pierre Cadeau to show at Fashion Week, Emily pays a visit to the designer wearing a floral embroidered coat from the MSGM Fall-Winter 2013 collection and the Kate Spade Nicola Faux Fur Twistlock Chain Shoulder Bag.
For Pierre Cadeau’s Fashion Week show, the Chicago native wore a floral puffer jacket from Off-White with a matching mini dress underneath. Obviously, her vintage camera-inspired phone case (similar here) makes an appearance, too.
Wearing Stéphane Rolland
Emily steps in to model “Pierre Cadeau’s” dress when the original model is unable to make the auction. This number is actually from Stéphane Rolland’s Spring 2017 collection, which she wore with metallic silver pumps that wrapped around the ankle.
