Starring Lily Collins, the show is created by Darren Star, the man behind shows like Sex and the City and Younger.
Taking the classic “American in Paris” trope and giving it a high fashion spin is Lily Collins’ upcoming Netflix show, Emily in Paris. The 10-episode series doesn’t drop until October 2, but the just-released trailer is giving us plenty to look forward to.
Created by Darren Star (who’s already given us women-living-their-best-lives shows like Younger and Sex and the City), the series stars Collins as Emily, an ambitious young marketing executive from Chicago, whose company acquires a French luxury marketing company and transfers her to Paris. Her new life in Paris, according to the show notes, is “filled with intoxicating adventures and surprising challenges as she juggles winning over her work colleagues, making friends, and navigating new romances.”
Speaking with Variety last year, Star outlined some of the initial hurdles Emily would face as an American expat in France. She is “not fully embraced by some of the French — she’s an American girl who comes to France and doesn’t speak any French, she has opinions about how to do things, but finds out ‘the American way is the best’ doesn’t always hold true and she makes a lot of faux pas.”
With veteran costume designer Patricia Field at the helm, the show guarantees some très chic fashion moments—think tailored blazers, flirty dresses, vibrant coats and of course, plenty of berets. Get a peek at some of the stylish outfits in the trailer below, and look out for Emily in Paris when it drops on Netflix on October 2.
