  • Emily Cooper from Emily in Paris makes for an easy DIY Halloween costume.
  • You can dress up as Emily using items that you already own.
  • Copy her hair and makeup with these tutorials.

After the buzz Netflix's Emily in Paris created last year and with a new season heading your way in December, you might be considering dressing up as Emily Cooper for Halloween this year. With her many different headwear changes, perfectly manicured eyebrows, and bold lip colors, Emily makes for a quick and easy, last-minute Halloween costume idea.

It's always a good idea to keep a DIY Halloween costume on the back-burner for any spontaneous plans that pop up, like short-notice costume parties. The perfect look for these spur-of-the-moment events is one you can throw together with items already in your closet. For Emily, you can put together one of her Parisian-chic outfits with clothes you already own, and replicate her hair and makeup look with everyday products. Better yet, gather two of your friends and dress up as Emily, Mindy, and Camille for an awesome group costume.

Ahead, you'll find everything you need to copy Emily's signature look from Emily In Paris for Halloween.


Possibly the most iconic and easy-to-recreate look of Emily's is her red beret outfit. First, you'll need a hat, like the Hat To Socks Wool Blend French Beret ($9) or ASOS Design Wool Beret ($15). Style your hair in loose waves either with a one-inch curling iron or by braiding your hair while it's wet and letting it dry like that.

Emily's makeup is very minimal. You can get the look by filling in your brows with a pencil and brushing up the hairs with a tinted gel for a big, fluffy look. A lengthening mascara is all you need to copy her eye makeup and then, as a finishing touch, swipe on a mauve-rose lipstick. We like the Maybelline Color Sensational Made For All Lipstick ($6) in the shade "Mauve For Me" or Tarte Color Splash Lipstick ($21) in the shade "Escape."
