The show has also been criticized for its depiction of French culture.
“We’re portraying clichés and we’re portraying one single vision of Paris,” Collins’ French co-star Lucas Bravo told CosmopolitanLast year. “Paris is the most diverse city in the world. We have so many different ways of thinking, so much diversity in nationalities, so much to offer, and so many different neighborhoods. Paris is a vast city and it would take a lifetime just to understand everything. It’s a whole world within a city. If you want to tell a Paris story, you need to choose an angle. You need to choose a vision. French critics didn’t grasp the fact that there is only one vision. They say, “Oh, that’s not Paris.” They are correct. Paris can be many things.
Collins also addressed French critics in a conversation with Vogue Arabia. “As frustrating as it can sometimes be to read these kinds of things, it’s also an opportunity to improve,” she said. Darren StarrMy fellow producers “championed and opened my eyes to an experience that was so satisfying and empowering.”
