Ladies we have been waiting for this moment since February 22, 2004. Yes the series finale of Sex and the City. Darren Star has created another series for us women are who not only are obsessed with fashion but also love a good rom-com. Emily in Paris is the binge-worthy show we have all been waiting for this entire quarantine. To be completely transparent the show premieres on Netflix October 2nd but I know it’s going to be so good on the outfits and fashion alone.
From Netflix: After landing her dream job in Paris, Chicago marketing exec Emily Cooper embraces her adventurous new life where juggling work, friends and romance.
Ahhh aren’t we so excited for it! Since traveling to Paris is basically impossible right now I can not wait to lounge on my couch and binge this entire show. I am a big fan of anything Darren Star creates, Sex and the City and Younger of my faves of his creations. But now we are in Paris with equally as fabulous outfits as Sex and the City because Patricia Field is the costume designer! I can already tell the fashion is going to be nothing but amazing by the photos circulating the world wide web.
Watch the Emily in Paris Trailer!
“Emily’s black tulle skirt is Episode 102 is an homage to Carrie’s tulle skirt in the series finale of Sex and the city.” – Patricia Field
Fun fact: this “touristy” button down nods to her new beginning.
Lets take a moment and talk about Patricia Field. If you’re anywhere close to the fashion world then you know the iconic name Patricia Field. She has brought her fun fashion style to the series and movies of Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, Ugly Betty, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and Younger to mention a few. The correlation between these films and series is obvious once you see the fashion, it’s all fun, bold, and 100% stylish to the character. For Emily in Paris Field hired a local costume designer, Marylin Fitoussi, for more authenticity and on the ground knowledge. Fun fact, Marylin also worked on Bandidas, super fun movie with Salma Heyek and Penelope Cruz.
I got SO excited when I saw Emily wearing this Alice and Olivia top because I have this top in my closet. I haven’t worn it yet and bought it for like $80 in the extreme end of season sale Saks had in the summer. I bought it kind of just another piece to add to the cart, hey it was lockdown quarantine and I was sad and no one took the credit card away from me, things happen. When it arrived I didn’t fall in love with it because I truly think I just got overwhelmed with the print but couldn’t return it because of the Eiffel Tower. I love Paris what can I say.
Fast forward a couple of months and I still did not know how wear it or when, or did I even want to wear it? In comes the first promotions for Emily in Paris and I was like YES! This outfit is so different from what I typically wear. I mean the blouse buttoned only in the collar gave me total Chola vibes. Other than the random celebrity paparazzi photos of a model or social media star rocking the look for a day I have only ever seen the Chola community really honoring this style that I have seen since my early days of life but in the 80’s. Ok I was born in 89′ but the Cholo/Chola community have been rocking this style since the 1970’s.
“Paris is Paris. It’s a dream for any young gal to find herself in Paris- first Carrie Bradshaw, now Emily Cooper. Paris is a fashion dream, and I think that women who love fashion can feel the same way in the city.” – Patricia Field
Emily in Paris will be available for all our fashion dreams on Netflix in just a couple of hours, October 2nd to be exact. Will you be watching?
