Lily Collins has lots of reasons to celebrate right now. Not only has the British actor become engaged to boyfriend Charlie McDowell (the writer-director proposed while the pair were holidaying in New Mexico), but her hotly-anticipated new TV series launches on October 2.

The 31-year-old plays the titular role in Emily in Paris, a comedy-drama that follows the story of a young American woman who relocates to the French capital for a job opportunity at a marketing firm.

Created by Darren Star, the man behind Sex And The City, and filmed before the pandemic, it looks like perfect autumn viewing, bringing us glorious Parisian cityscapes, fish-out-of-water laughs, and some truly fabulous outfits.

Given Collins always impresses with her fashion choices – especially when it comes to high profile events – we can’t wait to see how Emily’s on-screen wardrobe compares.

Ahead of the series launch, we look back at some of Collins’ most stylish red carpet appearances…

British Fashion Awards

With her porcelain skin and dark hair, Collins always looks amazing in a sleek black gown, but knows how to make a plain dress edgy with the right make-up and accessories. At the British Fashion Awards 2012 she teamed a black Mulberry column dress with a cool dangly ear cuff and berry-toned lip for a goth-glam look.

On the other hand, Collins can totally pull off a pillar box red frock, as she did with this Solace London gown with a cut-out back at the premiere of Love, Rosie in 2014.

Met Gala 2018

While some starlets play it safe at the Met Gala, Collins never fails to go all-out at the biggest night in the fashion calendar. In 2017, when many celebs struggled with the Comme des Garcons/Rei Kawakubo theme, the actor nailed it with a voluminous pink goth-princess gown by Giambattista Valli, which she topped with a blunt black bob wig and black cherry lips.

Baftas 2019

In the last couple of years Collins has really found her feet in terms of red carpet dressing, and isn’t afraid to take risks with what she wears. At the 2019 Baftas the actor donned a royal blue lace-skirted Givenchy gown which came with a cool cropped jacket – a fashion-forward look that totally paid off.

Met Gala 2019

Donning Giambattista Valli for the Met Gala 2019, Collins brought bridal chic to the pink carpet for the Camp: Notes on Fashion exhibition opening. She teamed the puff-sleeved mini dress and ruffle-edged train with a big bouffant hair ‘do and Sixties-style make-up, in homage to Priscilla Presley on her wedding day.
