The star has reprised her role as the titular character in the Netflix hit, which follows a woman named Emily who gets hired at a Parisian marketing agency called Savoir.

And she was gutted when she was told she couldn't nab some of the glamourous outfits her character wears on the show for her own closet.

Speaking in a cover interview with Vogue Australia, she says: “I didn’t keep anything this season. Believe me, I’ve asked.”

The Love, Rosie star admits that while she found it fun to experiment with fashion again, some pieces didn't feel comfortable after dressing for comfort amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

She says: “The brightness and boldness and fun and ease of humour Emily has in her wardrobe enhances her personality, especially coming out of Covid where comfort was everything.

“Not everything felt super comfortable after Covid, but it was really nice to have fun with fashion again the most heightened way possible.”

Lily also loved getting to reuse vintage pieces from the first instalment. She says, “One of the bonuses in the way we’ve filmed season two is the way we’ve incubated vintage in there.

“We’ve reused some key items in really interesting ways so that you are reminded that she’s a young woman that loves certain pieces of clothing and can’t just go out and spend money all the time.”

The hotly-awaited new season hits the streaming platform on 22 December.
