Emily In Paris is the televisual gift that keeps on giving – forget Christmas for a second, we are practically counting down the number of sleeps left until season three drops on Netflix on 21 December.

Not only is the show brimming with achingly Instagrammable Parisian backdrops and wildly handsome love interests, one of the main reasons that we are totally hooked on it is its next level costume department – Emily's personal life may well be in tatters at times, but at least she has the wardrobe of a champion. (Props to stylist Patricia Field, best known for her work on Sex and the City. Yep, she certainly knows her stuff.)

However, giving Emily a pretty fierce run for her money is actress Lily Collins who stars in the series as the American marketing executive protagonist.

The 33-year-old has set the bar sky high recently with her press tour outfit game – think Dior gothic lace, dangerously covetable Christian Louboutins and Fendi jumpsuits.

But another day, another killer Lily Collins look and this time the actress came through with a look that wouldn't have looked out of place in her onscreen character's style repertoire. After all, Emily is all about making a vibrant statement – understated is rarely on her agenda.

Lily Collins Wears Mint Green Flared Suit

The actress went for a 1970s-inspired flared leg 

Lily looked radiant as she stepped out on the streets of New York for a day of press appearances, rocking an ensemble curated by stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. Lily wore a mint green tailored suit from Prabal Gurung's SS23 collection.

Suits have forever been a staple for French girls, and yet we loved Lily's version for its unmistakable freshness. Featuring a sharp longline blazer, high-waisted flares and an innovative bandeau corset with black sheer cups, her ensemble, layered over a handy black turtleneck, provided the perfect example of how to give your wardrobe a colourful boost this season.

The actress topped off her look with a pair of vertiginous platforms, a style that she has been all over recently, Giuseppe Zanotti's 'Bebe' design in a crisp white shade, alongside a matching fold-over handbag by Cartier.

Emily would be proud.
