Lily Collins Is a Parisian It Girl in an Elegant Gown Covered in Cutouts

Oo la la.

The titular character of Emily in Paris may be known for her cringeworthy fashion attempts, but don’t mistake her sartorial faux pas for the style prowess of the show’s star, Lily Collins.

Yesterday, the actress made a glamorous appearance at the Theatre Des Champs Elysees for the world premiere of the Netflix hit’s third season. She channeled the effortlessly cool energy of Parisian It girls in a tawny brown dress from Saint Laurent. The elegant gown included triangular abdominal cutouts and ruched draping all along the center. She accessorized with gold bangles worn over the gown’s long sleeves.

As for beauty, Collins wore her mid-length brown hair down in light waves. She amped up the drama with her glam, opting for russet and glittering pink eye shadow, a vampy dark red lip, and a dark brown mani.

Season 3 of Emily in Paris will officially drop on Netflix on December 21.

“When I first read the script, I was willing to fight to even just get in a room [to audition]. I read the pilot, which was the first two episodes combined, and everything from the fact that it was a Darren Star show, to the fact that it was based fully in Paris and would be the first American show to shoot completely in Paris, and the fact that I’ve wanted to do a romantic comedy role for a long time,” she said. “I do tend towards slightly darker, more emotional, harder-to-speak-about topics in terms of my roles. I was craving some sort of lightness, some sort of romantic comedy of sorts.”
