Emily in Paris’ very best outfits and how to recreate them on a budget

C'est fantastique!

Emily In Paris outfits

by Ruby Barry |

Emily in Paris is a bit like Marmite... you either love it, or you hate it. The series was originally released as a Netflix Original in October 2020, telling the story of an American Emily Cooper. She is sent to Paris to work at a French marketing firm - and culture clashes ensue. A second season was released last December, and we can look forward to season three on 21 December 2022.

A lot of people loved its cheesy, escapist vibes, while others criticised it for its stereotyping and the main character’s actions (our friends over at Grazia have written an insightful article about the controversy, check it out here). Yes, Emily Cooper might be the most controversial female character Netflix has seen since Carole Baskin.

But one thing we can all agree on? Emily in Paris' outfits are utterly bonkers, in the best way possible.

Of course, a show set in the city of Paris is bound to have a wardrobe department to die for. Emily in Paris certainly does not disappoint. Lily Collins, who plays the titular character, gets to wear some stunning, if quirky, fits. Only problem? With a big-budget Netflix show, comes big-budget clothing prices. Each of Emily’s outfits on the show adds up to £1,000 minimum, and we just haven’t got that moolah.

Never fear, the heat team is here to help. We’ve scoured the internet and recreated Emily’s most iconic outfits from high-street brands. This means you can look "C’est Magnifique" on a budget.

In this scene, Lily Collins is originally wearing Louis Vuitton heels. Unfortunately, if another company tried to recreate a shoe with red bottoms, they'd most likely get sued, so we've chosen this chic red/black fade heel from Amazon instead.
