Three top style gurus dish on their favorite places to stay and shop in the City of Light.

Whether you're in town for fashion shows or just a summer sojourn, Emma Stone's, Brie Larson's and Lily James' stylists reveal their favorite spots to sleep, shop and find the perfect souvenir in the couture capital.

Petra Flannery, who styles Emma Stone and Emilia Clarke, stepped out at Atelier Versace, Giambattista Valli and Chanel during Paris Couture Week.

Where do you stay? "I like Plaza Athenee or George V. Both are so elegant and I love being on or close to Avenue Montaigne. It’s such a pretty street to stroll and shop."

Where do you go to shop? "I love Celine. I always find that they have more color options — especially with sunglasses and leather goods. I find pieces that I don't always see in the states."

What was your first fashion show in Paris? "My first show was Louis Vuitton. I wore a leather mini dress, and I remember how in awe I was to see models such as Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Amber Valletta all walking in the show."

What is the perfect souvenir? "I love the French patches you can buy at the local souvenir shops along Rue de Rivoli."

Cristina Ehrlich, who dresses Brie Larson and Anna Kendrick for the red carpet, took in Valentino, Giambattista Valli and Schiaparelli — as well as a cozy fourth of July party hosted by Chanel.

Where do you stay? "Pavillion de la Reine in the Marais."

What's your favorite cafe? "Le Castiglione."

Where do you go to shop? "Rue Vieille-du-Temple."

What was your first fashion show in Paris?  "My first couture show was Giambattista Valli. I went backstage and helped to line up the models and ended up watching from backstage."

What is the perfect souvenir? "Anything from Musee des Arts Decoratifs — they have the best gift shop with really special things."

Rebecca Corbin-Murray, who always keeps Lily James looking chic, headed to Paris to get her client Sophie Turner ready for Miu Miu’s party on July 4.

Where do you stay? "Le Bristol because it retains the elegance of a bygone era and the staff is utterly charming."

What's your favorite cafe? "It’s a cliche, but always Cafe de Flore."

Where do you go to shop? "Maison Michel for millinery, Repossi and Karry O for jewelry, Deyrolle for taxidermy and Colette for bits and pieces."

Are there any Parisian drugstore beauty products that you always buy? "I used to stock up on Embryolisse, Bioderma and Biafine, which is an essential, but now we have little French drugstores in London, so my luggage is a little less heavy coming home on the Eurostar!"

What is the perfect souvenir? "A good Parisian love story."
