Camille is the Actual Type Star on Emily in Paris
While Emily in Paris (Emphasis on Emily) has inspired both devout fashion fans and fierce critics, Emily’s Paris buddy Camille (played by Camille Razat) offers a more subtle style that we shouldn’t talk nearly as much about, but certainly should be. Between the “Ringarde”, the printed or bright colors, and the coherent ensembles that Emily Cooper wears as an American in Paris, I see Camille’s scenes with their chic clothes as a kind of cleaning agent for the palate. While Emily – and Mindy too – is a maximalist at heart, Camille reminds us that less can be more with the right tailoring, an outstanding cut, or the juxtaposition of two seemingly improbable pieces.
The real Camille agrees. Describing her favorite look from the series for POPSUGAR, the actress landed here: “The dress by Yves St. Laurent that looked like a heart here [pointing to her chest] and with the giant leather jacket oversized – that’s exactly what I put so feminine and chic and something very masculine over it. I love this look. ”The 27-year-old French actress and model seems to be embodying this enviable Parisian aesthetic off-screen, although it has a twist [are] so many similarities but I think my real life style is more bizarre, ”she told us when we asked her to compare the style of her on-screen counterpart to her own. “I like oversized things all the time, you know, and I love, for example, when I like to wear all black looks, I like to put on crazy socks or a crazy hat with something that colorful. So angular, I would say. ”
Her style too, thanks to the collaboration between the actor and the cloakroom department, influenced the looks you’ll see on the show: “It was such a good collaboration. Patricia Field is amazing. She’s a real punk, and I love that … The costume designer, the French [Marylin Fitoussi], she’s great because she really listened to what I was imagining. It’s a real collaboration. And I love the fact that she’s trying – and I’m trying – to bring in some smaller designers to get them recognized. “
The resulting looks are so effortless that Parisians are considered to be some of the most fashionable in the world. Camille’s outfits are the cool antidote to Emily’s over-the-top ensembles, and each has some styling gems in there. Here we check out some of the best from season two.
