FUN FASHION FINDS FROM THE CITY OF LIGHTS! OH LA LA!
Like every fan of Sex In The City, I’ve been snacking on Darren Star’s latest offering Emily In Paris whilst re-cooperating from my foot surgery! Vanity Fair have donned it ‘Cliche Souffle’ which is correct, and it’s also being compared it to Mary Kate & Ashley Olsons ‘Passport To Paris’ 1990s movie and they are bang on accurate!!
Let’s face it, when a fun new series made by SITC creators promises fashion plus the city of lights we’re all in! What is it that has us all craving Emily Coopers annoying yet charming character (played Lily Collins) ?? Not only is the script full of empty dialogue, I’ve found the fashion a little too obvious and am left wondering why certain looks were p together. Emily is clearly not supposed to be a ‘fashionista’, instead she’s a social media wiz for high end brands. She may be wearing very expensive clothes, but her character has obviously been designated a wardrobe poking some fun at what a stereotypical 'basic' American who doesn't speak French would think they should wear in Paris….
Having said that, it is still something of a visual delight. This is unsurprising since stylist Patricia Fields, who is famous for her wardrobe prowess on Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada, knows what she's doing.
Maybe I just love the show because Paris is off the travel cards for the moment. As someone that’s been lucky enough to both work and holiday in the amazing French city many times, for now the view from the couch will have to satisfy the itch!
