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, sent to Paris to work on a French marketing firm - and culture clashes ensue.

A second season has been released as of December 2021 and we've been hooked. A lot of people loved its cheesy, escapist vibes, while others criticised it for its stereotyping and 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? The 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, and 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 ten of Emily’s most iconic outfits from high-street brands, which means you can look "C’est Magnifique" on a budget.

Check out @emilyinparisoutfits on Instagram, which dedicates its time to compiling the original designer items on its page - you're the real MVP.

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.
