5 reasons to watch Emily in Paris The Netflix TV show with Lily Collins by the author of Sex & the City

Take popcorn and macarons, wear your coolest tracksuit, sit on the couch and press play. Because from today on Netflix is available Emily in Paris, the new tv series starring Lily Collins that, among Ville Lumière, crazy outfits, fashion system and loves, will make us forget about Sex & the City. The plot? Emily is a young marketing director from the Midwest who has always dreamed of spending time in Paris. When, unexpectedly, she gets a job opportunity in the French capital, she flies to Europe. Here, under the Eiffel Tower, she faces cultural differences, a new career, friendships and love. 

Here are 5 reasons to watch Emily in Paris.


The team behind the project is the same of Sex & the City

Remember when Carrie followed Russian artist Alexander Petrovsky in the Ville Lumière? Sex and The City fans will find many similarities between their favorite series and the new Netflix show. The reason is simple: the author of both series is Darren Star, as well as the costume designer, Patricia Field. Despite this, the mood of the two projects is different:

They come from two completely different places and dramatically are two very different shows. Sex in the City was about sex and relationships from a female point of view—a show about uncensored women defining themselves by their friendships and on their own terms. This show is about a young woman having an expatriate experience. To me they’re apples and oranges, but I can understand that there are similarities in terms of the fact they both sort of celebrate the cities where they take place and they share sort of an iconic costume designer.


A stunning wardrobe

The hype around the show is very high also because, since the first photos appeared on the net, the outfits of Lily Collins aka Emily looked fabulous.  The credit goes to Patricia Field, famous and visionary costume designer of Sex and the City, but also of The Devil Wears Prada, who collaborated with the French Marylin Fitoussi to develop Emily's wardrobe. The style choices are the same as the eclectic and daring taste that has made Sarah Jessica Parker one of the most imitated fashion icons of recent years, but are also inspired by Audrey Hepburn from Funny Face, but also by contemporary it-girls like Caroline de Maigret e Camille Razat

The outfits combine typical Parisienne, American streetstyle elements, items celebrating Carrie Bradshaw, Kangol bucket hats, mix and match prints. The use of the brands is also quite eclectic and includes many Chanel pieces, from the green tweed jacket from the Cruise 2019 collection to the white tee worn for jogging, Christian LouboutinDiorKenzoChristian SirianoVirgil AblohMaje, Sandro e The Kooples.



The main star of the series together with Lily Collins is Paris. While watching the 10 episodes of the first season, we will dream of wearing heels and fluffy little dresses walking among the pebbles of Rive Droite and Rive Gauche, eating churros at the Jardin des Tuileries or drinking champagne at a party under the Eiffel Tower at night. The only possible downside of this Parisian binge-watching? The overwhelming desire to buy the first available flight to France.

Lily Collins is perfect in the role of the twenty-year-old who goes to Paris to make her dreams come true. Known to the public especially for her performances in ShadowshuntersTo the Bone and Love, Rosie, she is often referred to as Audrey Hepburn's heir, for her features, grace and passion for fashion. If you want to know more about her we suggest you read Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, the autobiography in which she speaks openly about bulimia, anorexia, love and the experiences of a young woman.



It's the romantic comedy we need

In this strange autumn, as the world faces pandemic and economic crisis, after months of lockdown in overalls, there is something wonderfully heartening in watching a feminine comedy, easy and romantic, full of fabulous clothes and cute characters (have you seen Lucas Bravo?). So trust me, and press play!
