The much awaited, brand new season of the HBO saga, Game Of Thrones, finally hits TV screens today! I’ll be totally honest and say that some of us mega-fans in the MissMalini office are finding it hard to keep it in our pants! There are so many questions that we’re hoping the shows creators will be kind enough to answer over the final two seasons. If you’re a GoT fan then you know that we’ve got a painfull couple of weeks full of confusion, anticipation and a whole lot of anxiousness to look forward to.
Given the cult fandom surrounding this story and its characters, of course we’re going to be treated to a full on, glitzy premiere party. All the finest men and ladies of Westeros donned their best and strutted down, in this case, the blue carpet, slaying and sashaying in fabulous summer suits and gowns. Here are our top 10:
1. Rose Leslie in Erdem & Kit Harrington in Dolce & Gabbana
The real-life couple and once upon a time co-stars look stunning together, both in luxurious embroidered outfits. Rose’s character, Ygritte saw a rather brutal death at the hands of lover Jon Snow, played by Kit, who come summer or winter, is basically too good-looking to be killed even in fiction.
2. Gwendolyn Christie in Marc Jacobs
Don’t know if it’s because we’re so used to seeing this statuesque actress in a full armoured suit perpetually covered in blood and muck, but she is taking our breath away in this delicate sheer and embellished gown. We’d go as far as to call her our Khaleesi of this blue carpet!
3. Sophie Turner in Louis Vuitton
The new face of LV repped the brand in a short and sparkly Japanese print teeshirt dress. We’ve got big hopes for her character, Sanza Stark, who brought the big guns to the epic ‘Battle of The Bastards’ (Season 6, episode 9) but for now we can only think about how gorgeous and comfortable she looks in this cool get up.
4. Maisie Williams in Milly
As cool as Maisie’s, street-fighting GoT avatar, Arya Stark is, we think her fashion sense is way cooler. She always manages to stand out of the pack in simple and elegantly styled outfits and this green number is G for GORGEOUS!
5. Nikolaj Coster Waldau in Strong Suit.
Heart eyes for this handsome Kingslayer who rocks a suit of brightest hue in the show’s theme colour. He single handedly (wink wink) makes our knees weak.
6. Nathalie Emmanuel in Vivienne Westwood
She shares most of her screen time with Khaleesi, who is undoubtedly the fairest of the land and still looks awesome. Off screen, she’s just as lovely with a quirky and unique fashion sense.
7. Iain Glenn in a traditional tartan kilt.
The Scottish actor stands out of the crowd and gives us total Jorah Mormont vibes in a tartan kilt.
8. Gemma Whelan in Temperly London.
We’re so used to seeing this actress in her full sea-warrior, Yara Greyjoy getup, so this flirty summer dress is a much welcome change. She’s just another star who’s making pregnancy look absolutely fabulous. Also plus points to her on her quirky clutch by Charlotte Olympia.
9. Hannah Murray in J. Mendel.
This British actress wears a floor length, black and gold delight that makes her every move look so right.
10. Isaac Hampstead Wright in Burberry.
Eye spy with our third eyes, not-so-young Bran Stark looks delish in a dark and sleek suit which he perfectly accentuates with lace ups by Christian Louboutin.
