How Much Does It Cost to Dress Like ‘Emily in Paris’?

Zut alor! Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) must have beaucoup credit card debt on Emily in Paris, considering how much she’s living beyond her means.

Ahead of the Netflix comedy’s third season, the casino-comparison site estimated Emily’s income and expenses and found that the Savoir strategist is spending more than $121k against her annual salary of $48k. That means she must be adding more than $70k in credit-card debt every year.

Of course, Emily wouldn’t be in the red if she stopped buying luxury clothing. Between her Dolce & Gabbana dress, her Hermes bomber jacket, her Valentino sunglasses, and her other big-ticket apparel, Emily apparently thinks her annual fashion budget is $78k!

“When it comes to our favorite fiction TV shows, we sometimes have to remind ourselves that it isn’t a reality,” a spokesperson for says. “Emily in Paris is a show in which extravagance is at the core, but it’s interesting to see just how unrealistic the luxurious living of Emily is. The findings are a friendly reminder that her lifestyle isn’t exactly one to admire, given that her salary doesn’t cover half of her spending.”
