The show stars Lily Collins as the titular character who finds herself moving from Chicago to Paris for a job, albeit by slightly unrealistic means. She doesn’t speak a word of French, but she does arrive in Paris with a fabulous wardrobe and a love of Instagram.
Now, we could sit here and debate whether or not Emily’s Instagram posts would actually turn her into an influencer, but everyone is absolutely loving her phone case. It looks like an old school vintage camera and is most definitely super cute.
We found a bunch of options that look super similar to Emily’s, and the good news is that none of them will break your bank account—you can score one for only $6.99.
“I kept telling Patricia [Field] I loved it,” Collins told Glamour about the phone case. (Patricia Field, famed Sex and the City costume designer, helms the clothes and accessories on Emily in Paris, too.) “She said, ‘You do?’ I kept thinking it’s super fun, and Emily loves photography. Plus, Emily is really obvious, so wearing a big camera around her neck says it all. It’s not just another phone case. That was Emily’s ode to Carrie, in a sense of having her own version of [the Carrie necklace].”
While you may not be able to stock your closet with luxury designer labels like Emily, at least you can snag a cute phone case for cheap, right?
On that note, though, how does Emily afford all her gorgeous clothes on a mid-level marketing salary? She’s the new Carrie Bradshaw in more ways than one, it seems. “My goal is to make them look as good as I can, and just to be happy,” Field told Paper magazine about her approach to the clothes. “I really don’t say, ‘Oh, Carrie Bradshaw couldn’t afford this Manolo Blahnik,’ or — ‘I can’t go there.’ I just — I design out of optimism, and that’s why I like romantic comedies. To me, my job is to create the most interesting, original and beautiful wardrobe for my actors.”
