Lily Collins steps onto Emily In Paris set in ruffled lilac sundress teamed with towering heels

Lily Collins returned to work on Sunday as filming continued on the French Riviera for the eagerly anticipated second season of Emily In Paris.

Stepping onto the St-Tropez set in a ruffled lilac sundress, Lily, 32, looked lovely in the plunging frock, teamed with towering platform heels and chic sunglasses.

Lily’s brunette hair fell in loose waves past her shoulders, and on her right arm the actress toted an orange and pink beach bag.

In keeping with titular character Emily’s stylish ways, Lily wore layers of delicate chains around her neck and her fingers were adorned with rings.

Emily was flanked by co-stars Ashley Park and Camille Razat as they filmed scenes together.

Ashley, 29, wore a bright yellow off-the-shoulder top, which wardrobe had paired with bubblegum pink hot pants and an oversized sun hat.

Camille, 27, donned a structured white blazer dress and kept the sun at bay with a pair of show-stopping red sunglasses.

The trio filmed scenes outside a water-front café, located on a St-Tropez promenade, before moving down closer to the water’s edge.

Lily stars as the titular character in Emily In Paris, a Chicago native who moves to Paris for work.

Once there, she tries to establish herself professional and create new friendships while struggling with the culture clash.

Although several critics found the show charming, many criticised it for being slight and narrow-minded in its comparison of Midwestern American values to French values.

It did however enjoy an enormous following, with 58 million households streaming the show during its first month on air.

The series was the subject of controversy earlier this year when it was nominated for Best Television Series in the musical or comedy division at the Golden Globes and Lily was nominated for Best Actress in the same division, while much more critically acclaimed shows were snubbed.

In February, the Los Angeles Times reported that 30 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the organization that awards the Golden Globes, had been flown out to France for a two-night stay at a $1400-per-night hotel and treated with a visit to an esteemed private museum.

When the Golden Globes nominations were announced, several critics lambasted the organization for passing over acclaimed shows including Michaela Coel’s I May Destroy You in favor of Emily In Paris.

Back in October Lily revealed to Glamour that she used to severely pluck her eyebrows up through high school, before her mother Jill Tavelman told her to lay off.

Now, she does all the upkeep herself in order to prevent anyone else from thinning out her recognizable feature.

‘I do it all myself — I simply look in a magnifying mirror, get the tweezers and follow the line. I don’t let anyone touch them,’ she explained.

‘I really think less is more and I like to mess them up. But to be honest, I do maintenance every night.’
