It’s so bad it’s good. The Netflix guilty pleasure Emily in Paris has even been nominated for two Golden Globes, despite the hammering the show received from critics. I just can’t stop watching it. Besides Emily, Camille, and Gabriel’s love triangle, the Emily in Paris outfits put me on a serious rollercoaster of emotions.
Here’s a definitive ranking of Emily, Sylvie, Mindy, and Camille’s outfits from best to worst, to help you process what the hell just happened.
1. Camille’s Fashion Faceoff
I love a good chunky heel. And a high ponytail. And a ruffled shirt. And wide-leg jeans. Seriously, I love just everything about this outfit. Despite the fact that there are major tensions here, all I could think about was Camille’s outfit.
2. Camille’s Denim Attire
Let’s be real, everyone is always dressed up on this show. It makes me feel a little insecure when I’m watching this show for the third time on my couch at 5 pm, still in my pajamas. Camille is giving me all of the casual Parisian vibes we need here.
3. Emily’s Office Ruffles
Yet again, a good ruffled shirt. For once, Emily gives us a break from her usual pattern on pattern fashion choice by giving us this somewhat simple outfit.
4. Mindy’s Animal Print Galore
I absolutely love a folded blazer styled dress. Mindy, just like Emily, isn’t usually one for matching her outfits, so major brownie points for giving us a different look.
5. Camille’s Chic Plaid Attire
Oh Camille, so effortless, so chic. I would put it higher up on the list because I absolutely adore this outfit, except for the fact that I’m not sure I could pull this off, so I’m a bit salty.
6. Emily’s Chic Cafe Coat
Let’s just take a moment and clap for how good jewel tones look on Emily, especially paired with this printed neck scarf. However, I had to dock a few points for the shoes. How about a classic white sneaker? Sorry, Emily.
7. Sylvie’s Timeless LBD
Sylvie is always for the classic and timeless outfits and I’m definitely here for it. The statement bracelet and the thick belt makes this outfit for me. A square neckline? Yes, please!
8. Emily’s Nod To Audrey Hepburn
I don’t know if it’s because of the major girl power Emily gives off in this scene, but this girl looks like she should be on stage, performing in Swan Lake, herself, because goddamn girl, you look good.
9. Sylvie Strikes Again With An LBD
Again, a timeless look. Sylvie is usually for the gold jewelry, but here she switches it up with some silver pieces. Also, who doesn’t love a good mesh dress for an event that happens to be for the man you are sleeping with and his wife?
10. Emily’s Hot Pink Attire
I had to bring this outfit further down than I wanted to because, truly, I would want this outfit for myself if it wasn’t for the hot pink. The two-piece look has been a staple trend for years now, and Emily is bringing justice to it.
11. Emily’s Casual Look
Um, why doesn’t Emily wear big hoops all the time? Here, her hat and earrings are definitely pulling the weight of the outfit. Finally, a little color stabilization, and not a loud jacket that makes my eyes go out of focus.
12. Mindy’s Floral Dress And Accessories
It’s often Mindy’s accessories that bring her outfits down for me, and this is definitely one of these instances. Cut out the star earrings, the green purse, and the necklace, and this outfit would be tré chic.
13. Emily’s Sunny Yellow Attire
Normally, I would be all for Emily in yellow, but the yellow and black combination is not for me. I’m not quite sure why. Maybe an internalized fear of bee stings from my youth? I will check in with my therapist later about that.
14. Emily’s First Day At The Office Look
Okay, Emily. I can forgive you for this one. You just got to Paris, you must be jetlagged, and maybe you need sleep, but this is just not working.
15. Emily’s Wining And Dining Attire
I’m not even sure what to say here. Save the shoes for your feet.
16. Emily’s Crop Top And Jeans Selfie Look
Individually, maybe each of these pieces would work. But together, it’s truly a catastrophe and I’m not sure I will ever be able to recover.
17. Mindy’s Shirt And Denim Shorts Attire
Mindy, Mindy, Mindy. What am I to do with you? I’m trying really hard, but this outfit is just making it so difficult for me.
18. Emily’s Green and Pink Galore Look
After seeing this outfit, I wonder if Emily has opened up a Justice brand store on the streets of Paris.
19. Emily’s Mish-Mash of Colors
I have no words. I am left absolutely speechless.
Okay, so the outfits are a wide range of extremes, but who cares, I still am going to watch the hell out of the second season.
