We have to admit, we’re suffering from withdrawal symptoms from the Season Six finale of HBO’s Game of Thrones. Emilia Clarke is often seen in pastel blue, grey or white draped dresses as Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, Mother of Dragons, but on the red carpet, Emilia Clarke slays in super feminine and form fitting dresses. Confidence is key to pull off plunging necklines and nipped in waists, and Clarke definitely knows how to dress for her body type.
As the cover star of Harper’s BAZAAR US last year, Clarke shared her obsession for fashion and all things girly as a child, and even now:
“When I was 11 or 12 or something, people would say, ‘Do you promise? Cross your heart, hope to die?’ I would be like, ‘I swear on Chanel,’ ” she says. Everyone was like, ‘Oh, shit, she means it.’ ” Chanel was everything to the young Clarke, and still is.
Clarke has played dress-up for years. “My friends would say, ‘Emilia is the most dressed person at anything.’ I’ve always wanted to jazz it up.” The previous day she was paparazzied at LAX airport in a pink Simone Rocha tulle coat, placing her white Dior pumps on the security tray. “Oh, the Rocha … ” She lets out a moan. “A bright pink little foam skirt, with a stiff white lace jacket. That’s one of my favorite things ever. I get one thing I love and I wear it to death.” Pink is a theme. “Pink Céline shoes, super pretty, they go with everything. Though now they are covered in mud and shit. Because I wear these lovely clothes, lovely shoes, and then I will go for a walk on Hampstead Heath. I come back and they are ruined.
