Lily Collins' character as Emily in the hit Netflix show "Emily in Paris" is a fashion icon in her right. The 33-year-old British-American actress inspires many of Gen Z's fashion choices today as Sex and The City's Carrie Bradshaw and Gossip Girl BFFs Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodson did in the past. While Lily's scenes in the film universe are interesting, one turning point for her character stands out as iconic - S 01 x Ep. 6, Ringarde.

Emily In Paris At The Opera

When Lily's character Emily attends an Opera to get a second audience with a star designer, she pulls out all the stops for her outfit; after all, she had to prove she wasn't so basic as he'd first noted. She wore a Christian Siriano black off-shoulder dress from his 2019 Fall Collection.

The midi A-line dress showed off her toned legs through the sheer bottom, and she paired the look with black and silver pumps. The designer Christian Siriano wished her a Happy Birthday posting this outfit and calling it "one of our favorite moments" from the series.

He didn't lie because it birthed this Iconic Gossip Girl reference that became a bonding element for Emily and Pierre Cadault. Fashionable people need basic people to make them stand out.
