Happy Birthday - or should we say Bon Anniversaire, to Emily in Paris star Lily Collins, who turns 35 today.

Her role as Emily Cooper -  the all-American, eccentric-dressing, sickly sweet social media-obsessed marketeer from Chicago - has undeniably brought us some of the most iconic outfits in modern television history, so much so that Instagram accounts dedicated to the show's costume department have garnered hundreds of thousands of followers.

But off-screen, Lily - the daughter of British musician Phil Collins - is a style icon in her own right. Though her personal dress code may not be as eccentric as her titular character in the Netflix series, Lily is unafraid to experiment with exaggerated silhouettes, bold colours and era-defining aesthetics.
