If “Sex and The City” had a Gen-Z counterpart, it would be Netflix’s “Emily in Paris.” Set in the present, the show follows the life of 20-something social media marketer Emily Cooper, played by Lily Collins. Cooper gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to revitalize the social media channels for the Parisian luxury brands in her company’s portfolio. No biggie.
Plot aside, everyone is talking about the show because of Emily’s outfits, which are curated by costume designer Patricia Field (yes, the same Patricia Field who costume designed “Sexy and the City”).
