Follow Ashley Park Inside The Neiman Marcus Awards

We joined Emily In Paris star in preparation for the ritzy awards ceremony

Wait a minute. Did we just step into an episode of Emily In Paris? V Magazine glammed up with actress Ashley Park for the comeback of the Neiman Marcus Awards during the 2023 Paris Fashion Week. Clad in a sequined three-piece suit designed by Brunello Cucinelli (who was himself being honored at the prize reception), Ashley gleamed above the other guests at the elegant Girafe Restaurant. She mesmerized us with her daring smokey eye makeup, transporting us into an idyllic Parisian night from the 1930s.. in the blink of an eye. 

Take a peek at Ashley’s exclusive photo diary of her night:

“Looking through the beautiful Brunello Cucinelli outfits for their & Neiman Marcus’ event tonight at La Giraffe.”
“Picking jewelry with my amazing hair and makeup team from Emily in Paris, Carole Nicolas, and Julien Parizet.”
“We went for this ’30s vibes glam with strong smokey eyes to compliment tonight’s look. I love the smudgy, hazy effect that it creates, but also because the look feels equally cool, edgy, glam, and classic all at the same time. Inspired by the Cucinelli suit we’ve picked to wear.”
“Julien did an amazing job with this wavy bob, which we pulled inspiration from Vivien Leigh and Marlene Dietrich! Magician at work to create my dream faux bob for tonight!”
“Striking a pose on my way down the stairs of the gorgeous Plaza Athénée. We stayed here for the Paris premiere of Emily in Paris season 3, so these halls hold a special place in my heart! After my ankle injury a month ago, I am always cautious of wearing heels nowadays. However, these Cucinelli ones not only feel comfortable and safe with my hidden ankle brace but elevate the whole look (get it? Elevate? Heels? Tehehehe.)”
“My outfit is from the one and only Brunello Cucinelli, and I feel so extremely lucky to be wearing this beautiful suit tonight. My first time stepping out in three-piece suit for a formal event! I think it’s really important to balance comfort with style, as well as timeless class with modern boldness… this outfit did it perfectly!”
“And we have arrived at le Girafe! The most lovely space for an intimate dinner celebration.”
“I had the honor of meeting Brunello Cucinelli, and hearing him speak about his point of view on fashion with such heart and passionate insight in his craft.”
“The next generation of Cucinelli’s, and me! It was so amazing getting to know Carolina and Camilla Cucinelli, and their husbands over dinner. they are so sweet and empowering! Best dinner dates ever!”
“Tonight felt so special. I spent time with the Cucinelli’s, their wonderful team, my Emily in Paris castmate Paul Forman, all within the beautiful city of Paris!”
