Get ready to say "bonjour" to Anya Firestone, Emily Gorelik, Margaux Lignel, Kacey Margo, Adja Toure, and Victoria Zito when Real Girlfriends in Paris premieres with two(!!) episodes on Monday, September 5.
With the premiere just days away(!!), we have a look at the juicy and stylish supertease for Real Girlfriends in Paris as this group of ex-pats try to schmooze their way through one of the most famous cities in the world and navigate friendships, romantic relationships, family situations, and career drama. But, as is noted in the supertease, even when things get a little hard, it's easy to love Paris because "it is the most magical city."
And, as it turns out, being an American in Paris is a little easier with an awesome group of friends: "My ex-pat friends are more like family."
We're just getting started with these ladies and we already j'adore everything about them.
Get to know the ladies a little better, below.
Anya Firestone is an artistic, bubbly, and resilient woman who loves all things French culture. She has lived in Paris on and off for the past decade, has a master’s degree in French cultural studies, and is licensed by the French government to give tours at every historical and cultural venue in Paris. As an inventive hostess, she often has gatherings and weekly Shabbat dinners in the Parisian apartment she shares with her fiancé, Mathieu, and their precious pup, Zsa Zsa. Anya exudes her quirky personality everywhere she goes, and her affectionate presence makes her the go-to shoulder to lean on when the ladies are feeling homesick or needing advice.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Emily Gorelik visited France while attending NYU and decided she was going to stay. She has lived in Paris for two years, and while she is still perfecting her French, she prides herself in knowing enough to order in cafés, date French boys, and of course, shop. Emily is pursuing a degree in luxury design management with the dream of bringing her mom’s interior design brand to Paris. When presented with a once-in-a-lifetime fashion internship, however, she is faced with the decision of following her parents’ path or creating her own.
Kacey Margo is a Southern California native who traveled to Paris while taking a semester off from college. Bitten by the Parisian bug, she fell in love with the culture and quickly secured a temporary role as an English teacher in a French classroom. The instability of her work situation forced her to bounce between Paris, L.A., and New York for a few years, but she has recently returned to the City of Light and is determined to stay. Unfortunately, complications with her visa could get in the way.
Margaux Lignel is a free spirit looking for love, fun, and lasting friendships. She has been educated at some of the best schools in the world, including the American School in Paris, FIT, and the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design. Born to French parents in New York, she spent most of her formative years traveling back and forth to Paris, and she just moved into a new apartment in the 5th arrondissement. Margaux is yearning to chart her own path, on her own terms, and she is figuring out exactly what she wants to do next.
Adja Toure is a high achiever with an Ivy League degree from Cornell. After visiting Paris while growing up, she dreamed of returning as an adult. With her family scattered across the country, she always felt at home in France. Fatigued by her current job, Adja begins to consider a career pivot into the beauty space. While putting this next phase in motion, she dips her toe into the dating scene but needs to combat her trust issues first.
Victoria Zito is a small-town girl with big fashion dreams. Born and raised in Texas, Victoria was always encouraged by her mother to stay close to home and stick to what she knows. With a burning passion for fashion, though, Victoria moved to Paris in 2017 with a scholarship to Parsons and is currently the head designer at nascent fashion brand Chloe Colette. Recently divorced, Victoria is ready to start a new chapter, focus on herself, and explore all the romantic opportunities Paris has to offer.
