Seeing as Sex and the City has sadly lost its shine as my go-to comfort show (all of the partying, shopping, and, of course, sex made me too depressed to watch in a pandemic during which I am partaking in approximately none of those things), I, along with probably every other girl between the ages of 15 and 50, have been in desperate need of a new semi-mindless, lighthearted, and fashion-forward show I can just sit back, judge the style choices of, and escape to for a while. Luckily, the creator of Sex and the City himself, Darren Star, has come through just in time. Et voilà, behold Netflix's Emily in Paris.
Starring Lily Collins as the titular Emily (a less psychotic Carrie Bradshaw stand-in), the show is so delightfully true-to-life, despite being as fantastical as one would expect from a series called Emily in Paris, because of how blissfully basic its American-Girl-In-Paris protagonist unknowingly is. That, however, must be the result of really good writing, because there's just no way they could have captured the essence of such basicness if it wasn't on purpose.
