Lily Collins: Actor, Fashion icon, Netflix star

Posted on April 01 2021

Emily in Paris was last year’s surprise Netflix hit (don’t lie, we know you watched it), and the biggest reason was the incredible fashion that the stylish characters flaunted in every scene. The titular character was played by Lily Collins and she’s head-to-toe fun designer fashion from start to finish – think Kenzo, Chloe, Off White, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and more – so we set out to see if Collins has a similar sense of style.


As it turns out, she certainly does.


At this year’s Golden Globes, Collins wowed in a Saint Laurent embroidered one shoulder gown. It also had a divine curvy cut out at the waist to emphasise her fantastic figure. She paired the dress with an art déco pink coral onyx and diamond bracelet and Serpendor diamond earrings, both by Cartier.

Collins is a bit of a fan of Saint Laurent. At the 2020 MTV Movie & TV Awards, Collins wore a fabulous latex mermaid bustier dress and Venus slingback pumps, both by the French luxury house. She paired them with white gold earrings and a Trinity ring both by Cartier.

She also attended an Emily in Paris promotional event wearing the brand. She opted for head-to-toe Saint Laurent AW 2020, with black latex pants, a sheer, pussy-bow blouse and a gorgeous blue jacket, plus a pair of pointed-toe pumps.

Collins even showed up at last year’s Saint Laurent fashion show in Paris in a party-ready sequinned playsuit paired with stiletto-heel pumps with metal detailing at the toe.

The star made the Sag Awards nomination announcement this February in Miu Miu – an unusual ensemble that consisted of a long-sleeved dress with a sheer skirt over a pair of patterned leggings.

At a promo event for her newest series MANK, Collins opted for Prada, and the outfit consisted of a slashed and embellished skirt with a sleeveless button-up print blouse.

Back in 2019, the actor attended the EE British Academy Film Awards in London in stunning Givenchy. The skirt combined sequins and sheer fabric, and up top was a cropped blazer in the same shade of navy. She paired the attention-grabbing gown with platform shoes by the same luxury brand.

The year before, she attended the Met Gala in the same label. The Givenchy gown was structured, with sharp angles and sheer panels, and she accentuated it with an elegant headpiece that nodded to the theme, Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.
