If you’re like the millions of girls and girls at heart who gushed over Lily Collins’ fabulous character, Emily Cooper, in the new Netflix Original series, “Emily in Paris,” then magnifique! You are free to live that dream- stroll around the city in a floral dress with a turquoise, vintage bike; read a book while you sit peacefully on a bench, with just the sound of the fountain splash; or eat at a French restaurant while spotting on cute French guys- you can express all sorts of love, including self-love, in the city of love! As stellar as Lily Collins looks in every outfit, her designer ensembles are just as beautiful as the landscapes she goes to. The foreground has never fully complemented the background in the most flattering way possible!
So, pack your trench coats and berets, free up your phone storage, and don’t forget to visit these wonderful places on your next trip to Paris!
Atelier des Lumières
Ever wanted to go to the Van Gogh exhibit in BGC but didn’t have the time to do so? Then this place will definitely make up for it. If art pieces leave you in awe every time you stare at them, imagine adding lights at them. It will be breathtaking, and heartwarming at the same time. As Ed Sheeran’s Tenerife Sea goes, “Lumiere, darling. Lumiere, over me!”
Les Deux Comperes
We’re sure you’ve heard of Gabriel- the hot French head chef who doesn’t wash his iron skillet? People say he’s just as a beautiful a view as every spot in Paris, but his restaurant, though… The textbook look of how you envision restaurants in your head without having seen it in person yet. Sip your aged wine to complement your medium rare steak while you enjoy the ambiance. It will truly be an experience.
Emily’s apartment (and literally every apartment in Paris)
You know how your polaroids have the vintage feel to them, so it feels so aesthetically satisfying whenever you hang them up on your walls? Think about those films, but your eyes get to look at the whole scenery. The beige, musty walls with crippling vines, and the Renaissance pillars and buildings… even apartments in Paris are Instagrammable. You won’t have to worry if your dress suits the spot, because the tones of neutral colors are so flexible to take pictures on.
Le Maison Rose
The shabby chic aesthetic has always been a girly girl’s staple. The shades of pink, tiffany blue and green stand out, and go well with the old pieces your grandma had when she was young- that vintage telephone with a circular dial, the old watering cans colored in different shades of pastel, or even that old, simple chest that contains hundreds of pictures. You get the feel of this theme in this place. The pink walls itself will already lure you to dine in this place and enjoy your cheesecake!
As portrayed in the show, Lily Collins’ character made this place the star of a marketing campaign for a big client by unusually, turning it into a place to sleep on under the stars. But really, this street can be your runaway. Why look at the stars, when you can be the star? Put on your favorite coat, put on some shades, grab a hand bag, and pose fashionably with your girlfriends!
