Whatever your thoughts on the fashion choices in the viral TV hit Emily in Paris, it’s clear that the actor in the titular role is no slouch in the wardrobe department. The contents of Lily Collins’s LA wardrobe are consistent with her polished brand of girl-next-door charm – from the high-school sweatshirt that inspired her book, to the Levi’s jeans she wore to Karl Lagerfeld’s last Chanel show – but there are some show-stopping pieces, too, namely the bespoke Chanel shoes the French house made for her debut at Le Bal des Débutantes, or the Crillon Ball. Watch the video for a glimpse of Collins’s favourite wardrobe binders – and the vintage memento she picked up between takes in Paris.

For much of the weekend before we speak, Lily Collins threatens to melt my laptop as I tear uncontrollably through her latest show, a raunchy, rompy, highly bingeable comedy set in Paris. Her on-screen character, Emily, goes one better and blows the power in an entire Parisian arrondissement by plugging in her US-wired vibrator during a Facetime sex call with her American-based boyfriend. She then moves on to deflowering her friend’s 17-year-old brother, the scion of a champagne house, at his parents’ château.

The Guildford-born, LA-raised Collins has an eminently solid acting CV, starring as Sandra Bullock’s daughter in The Blind Side, Snow White in Mirror, Mirror and Fantine in last year’s BBC adaptation of Les Misérables, but until now the 31-year-old former model’s roles have tended to play more to her doll-like prettiness rather than her comedy chops. In truth, her acting accomplishments as a whole have been somewhat overshadowed by her very famous father, the thrice-married British musician Phil Collins, who split from Lily’s mother, his second wife, the American antiques dealer Jill Tavelman, when she was five. Lily and her mother relocated to Los Angeles and she only saw her father during school holidays.

In Collins’s 2017 collection of personal essays, Unfiltered, No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me, she wrote an open letter to her father. “We all make choices and, although I don’t excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can’t rewrite the past,” she wrote. “I’m learning how to accept your actions and vocalise how they made me feel. I accept and honour the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn’t do, did or didn’t give me.”

Hello Lilyians! Last Thursday, Lily made an appearance on Variety and IHeart podcast The Big Ticket, during which she spoke about her new project, Emily in Paris. You can listen to the full episode below, and we’ve also added to our gallery two outtakes taken for Variety.

Before the world went into lockdown, when Americans were free to travel internationally, Lily Collins was crisscrossing continents. The Golden Globe-nominated actor was shooting her new Netflix series “Emily in Paris” in the City of Lights, as well as working in Los Angeles on David Fincher’s “Mank” — a drama about the making of “Citizen Kane.”

In “Emily,” premiering on Netflix on Oct. 2, she stars as the title character, a young fashion marketing exec who is transferred from Chicago to Paris, where she doesn’t know anyone and can’t speak French. Slowly, she finds new friends and, of course, romance. 

“You can see it in the first episode that Emily doesn’t have to change who she is in order to be ultimately embraced and understood,” Collins, 31, says on Thursday’s episode of the Variety and iHeart podcast “The Big Ticket.” “She’s obvious; she’s loud in her fashion and in her facial expressions. She’s very much set in who she is, but she’s also willing to embrace change and new ideas and new people and learn about herself — and also in turn, teach other people. We didn’t have this transformation scene where she goes into a dressing room as Emily from America and comes out as Parisian Emily, and people are like, ‘Oh, now we understand you.’”

The 10-episode series is from “Sex and the City” creator Darren Star, with a fabulous wardrobe by “SATC” costume designer Patricia Field.

Is “Emily in Paris” considered “Sex and the City” for a new generation? 
We really wanted to make sure that Emily was not a new Carrie. We wanted Emily to be Emily and stand alone. But I also feel, and Darren agrees, that I think Emily grew up watching “Sex and the City.” I think she loved Carrie Bradshaw. I think she loved Audrey Hepburn. I think she read all the pages of Glamour and Vogue and Elle and all those magazines. I think that probably Carrie was one of those inspirations to her, as were all the other women in that show.
