Fingerless gloves, bold clashing prints, and ill-fitting bucket hats are what comes to mind when I think about the sartorial anarchy of Emily in Paris. I’ve watched both seasons (the third comes out December 21) with the attention it deserves: scrolling on my phone while occasionally looking up to exclaim, “ooo! Hat!”

It’s a fun show for what it is—a 2007 Teen Vogue shoot interspersed with Sex and the City’s worst platitudes, in the girl boss era—which is why I was disappointed to see how bad the cast’s outfits were for the third season’s premiere on Tuesday. I mean, technically the outfits were good, but they did a bad job at nailing the deranged style that has hooked so many of us. Almost all of them went for black or tan, save for Lucien Laviscount.

Luckily, the (mostly) unnamed guests whose photos appeared on Getty had done their research on the Emily in Paris cinematic universe and made up for the blandness the cast delivered. While I cannot identify everyone pictured in this slideshow, their stylistic bravery does not go unnoticed. As in war, so do our red carpet heroes often remain anonymous.

This look is nice! I like the Catwoman-ness of it — black leather gloves, a feline heeled bootie. Leroy-Beaulieu’s character Sylvie is the best dressed on the show (she’s French!) so perhaps I shouldn’t expect her to walk the carpet in a houndstooth jumpsuit with cutouts. But this does look like something I could get by walking into Zara.

The only thing risqué about this outfit is that it isn’t tailored well and it looks like she might trip—but that at least would bring the drama I am craving!! Our Emily looks like perfectly browned toast with little dabs of butter. I also refuse to look at her bare paws without them restrained by her signature fingerless gloves.

What did I say about craving drama? Well, consider me satiated. This is the insanity I want to see at a premiere for Emily In Paris. This is like if the tiger in Tiger King ate Big Bird. Also the corset is giving me less Gilded Age and more Hulk Hogan heavyweight belt. Zouai looks ready to put up a fight.

Lucien, I wanna be your lover—not just because this ensemble reminds me of Prince, but because you’re the only cast member brave enough to dabble in some goddamn color. It is also tacky enough of a look for me to approve of it. I can’t believe Emily is even considering Gabriel over Alfie.

Cami is having fun with texture—which I appreciate—but she looks like a bird who’s been underexposed to the sun. Why do feathers if they’re going to be the color of work slacks? Like girly, have fun! Take flight! This is your big, fun work party! And to add insult to injury look at what this next guest wore...

...Fun, colorful, glittery feathers! Cami found dead! Am I on a Pride Parade float!? It sure feels that way! This looks like something Emily would wear on a second date with a barback and I am glad that poor decision making is being celebrated by someone at this damn premiere.

Another incredibly fun and on-theme outfit from someone not on the show. No, this outfit isn’t “good” but the fish net ankle socks and matching gloves, slides, and hat are exactly what this event deserves. It’s a Forever 21 fever dream, a Wet Seal hallucination and I don’t want to wake up!

Well, look who has gotten so serious and fancy now that he’s a prominent extra on The White Lotus. Just because you’re a “high-class gay” in Sicily doesn’t mean you’re above having a little freaking fun at this premiere, Bruno. I better see you in something STUPID for the next publicity event.

I do not know who this woman is on this realm, but in another universe, she is my mother. The Jenn Lyon thick rimmed glasses, the snakeskin boots and pink fishnets, the statement necklace and matching earrings... I hope the casting director saw this woman and is giving her a two-episode guest arc this season. She deserves.

Kate is giving us a little drama but in such a boring color!! This is like a Club Monaco holiday party look. It’s the sweater dress I’d wear to Thanksgiving plus the blanket I’d use post-meal to cover up all the gravy I spilled on myself. Color me bored!!

Giddy up! This here is what I am talking about! Bellbottom cowhide suit with a bejeweled lapel and plaid mini-tie and baseball hat to cap it off. This is someone who did [clap] the [clap] work [clap]. And by “work” I mean laid on their couch and maniacally binged this show during the darkest months of Covid lockdown, then planned their outfit accordingly.

What a glamorous dress and matching sequin trench! It would be perfect for a high drama Hollywood event! Unfortunately for Park, that’s not where she was last night. She was at the third season premiere of her insane Netflix show that involves her forming a band on the streets of Paris. I know that Park isn’t her character and is allowed to stray from my specific vision for her but at least give me a tiny hat to go along with this look.

Tiny hat alert! Kim Cattrall is giving sexy British goth sailor aka a sartorial description that is absolutely, word for word, on the show’s wardrober’s Pinterest board. I’m glad a woman on the original show of women dressing insane is making an appearance here. We must pay respect to our TV fashion elders.

I wish I could have made a slideshow of just Lucas Bravo photos so you could see that he did this exact same pose in every single one of them. In some of the photos he even looped his fingers through his belt loop—sexy! But this subdued bellhop look is putting me to sleep. Tuck me in, give me a little smooch on the forehead, and shut the door on your way out.

Sophisticated and chaotic glamour. This person sort of looks like a beautiful chic Venetian mime, which is how subtlety works in the Emily in Paris world. You can’t be actually subtle, you have to sort of dress like you’re vacationing on the riviera after a stay at a mental hospital for “exhaustion.” The gentle hand clasp is the quiet drama I die for.
