Emily Cooper's ringarde fashion sensibilities usually dominate conversations around Netflix's Emily in Paris. But it's Sylvie Grateau–the sophisticated boss at marketing firm Savoir, played by French actress Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu–who truly steals the show. There's a certain je ne sais quoi to Sylvie's style, from her classically cool pantsuits to sultry off-the-shoulder dresses (whch she almost always wears topped off with sky-high stilettos).
At the recent Ami fall winter '22/'23 show during Paris Fashion Week, Leroy-Beaulieu channeled her iconic TV character. The actress wore a sheer, clinging, long-sleeved midi dress in a deep forest green hue. She complemented the risqué look with a classic slouchy long coat in black, and accessorized with strappy metallic heels, a black bag, glittering drop earrings, and a scarlet red mani-pedi. All in all, it's an ensemble we could easily picture Sylvie wearing while walking down the streets of Paris or throwing a snarky witticism at Emily in the Savoir offices.
In a 2020 interview with The New York Times, Leroy-Beaulieu said that Sylvie's wardrobe doesn't reflect her own personal style.
"I loved being overdressed in Emily, because I don’t do it in real life,” she said. "I wouldn’t wear those heels on Paris sidewalks. But it doesn’t matter. The idea was to push all the fashion higher than real."
Of her character's development in season two, which premiered last month, the actress told Vulture, "I like her vulnerability when she’s a bit lost and loses control. But she comes back at the end going all in on herself. I like the cracks because that’s exactly what I’ve seen in real life."
