If you have spent your entire Saturday looking for something to binge-watch on Netflix, then you can drop the search and treat yourself with Season one of ‘Emily in Paris.’ The first season dropped on Netflix this Friday.
The romantic comedy series, Emily In Paris, centers around Emily Cooper (Lily Collins), a young, ambitious girl from Chicago who moves to Paris to add an ‘American perspective’ to the marketing agency that is recently bought by her company. She lives out her dream life in the city of lights. The show captures the gamut of things from fashion, food, career, lavish infrastructure, to too good to be true romance, basically, all the things that you are craving right now.
The ten-episode series is hilarious, relatable, works as an escape from reality, and is downright iconic.
‘Emily in Paris’ is created by the award-winning director ‘Darren Star’. He has mastered the art of creating ultra-glam shows with memorable characters. In this show, he has beautifully captured the French Capital.
In need of some Fashion Inspiration?
If you are a fashion enthusiast, then you have to go watch the show ASAP. Darren Star has collaborated with the S– and the City costume designer Patricia Field. The celebrity stylist was nominated for Oscars for her outstanding clothes in the movie Devil wears Prada. She deserves a massive shoutout for Lily Collins’ envy-invoking wardrobe. From Color blocking, hounds tooth, Tulle, miniskirts, belts, a sock with heels, berets, and cardigans, it had all the elements of Parisian style. Lily Collins’ wardrobe also had the classic ‘Audrey Hepburn’ vibe to it.
In a recent interview with Fashionista, Patricia Field said, “It’s about an American in Paris. Paris is the place of passion. Paris is exciting.”
‘Emily in Paris’ isn’t just about fancy designer clothes but also addresses issues like “sexist” marketing campaign, BalanceTonPorc, France’s version of the Me too movement, and “dysfunctional” office space. We can’t deny the fact that the show is a bit stereotypical. French people are portrayed in a negative light in the show, therefore there is a possibility of a tad bit controversy.
