While playing the all-American Emily Cooper in Emily in Paris, Lily Collins often delivers wild takes on classic French style—including bright red berets and bold trench coats. Ahead of its season three premiere, Collins made an appearance on Good Morning America in New York City this morning, and she sported one of her best French-inspired looks yet off the screen. How so? She leaned into classic tailoring, a decidedly more subdued approach to French dressing than her TV character takes.
Collins wore a Fendi sandy wool overcoat, structured strapless dress, and a black turtleneck worn underneath. The ensemble’s sleek, clean lines are exactly what French style is all about—put-together without trying too hard. Her discreet accessories also totally elevated the look, including a mini top handle bag, patent platforms, and sheer tights. While the TV character’s bold statement outfits are always fun to behold, Collins’s modern getup could actually have her mistaken for a real Parisian. Emily should take notes.
