We’d apologize for doing a third inspo post for our favourite White Queen but we’re not actually sorry. Emma Frost is just such an awesome character to mentally dress in the world’s high fashion because she’s someone who actually wears this sort of thing when she’s not on the run or going through one of those unfortunate phases where all she wears is black or her superhero costume.
We’re start off with this look by Proenza Schouler with its plunging and barely there neckline and all!
We’ll keep with the suit theme with this more conservative suit from Ralph Lauren for the occasions when she does need to go with more traditional business wear.
She’d be all over this Alexandre Vauthier; jacket, dress, and all!
We’re flying straight back to Westeros and the nations beyond as we ask what yet another Game of Thrones character would wear from today’s high fashions! Today, we’re focusing on Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen; Khaleesi and Queen of the Seven Kingdoms and a heck of a lot of other titles I won’t repeat here because I’m not Ser Jorah.
Dany is one of the characters with a more varied look. We first see her as a princess in exile, then as a Khaleesi, and then Queen without a country who fights in whatever arena she must for her people. It’s resulted in us seeing her in many different fabrics and styles which means this post was fun to pull together without the limitations of colours and/or plunging necklines.
We’ll start with this effortlessly flowing dress by Zuhair Murad.
While we didn’t get to see the typical Qartheen gowns on the screen, this dress by Reem Acra certainly invokes the asymmetrical bare-breasted look that makes them so distinctive.
Of course, we can’t neglect her heritage as the heir to House Targaryen with these two looks by Vionnet and Valentino in its colours.
Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken. Yeah, we can dig that motto. We might belong to House Lannister and House Stark here at White Hot Room but we both have a healthy respect for the Martells down in Dorne. (Arianne and the Sand Snakes: BAMFs or BAMFs?)
Dorne is a hot land, the exact opposite of Winterfell so it makes sense that their fashion senses would be quite different. Their sigil and colours: the sun and spear and red and orange, say a lot about their house as does their motto. I considered the Sand Snakes (Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters) when I made this post as they are members of the house in everything but name in a way that most bastards are not. Colour was something that I definitely paid attention to with the house colours, black, white, and gold but it was not something that I let limit my choices. Many of the looks have a casual ease to them while others definitely show a bit more skin, something I think the Martells would be right at home doing, (Margaery Tyrell, eat your heart out.)
We’ll start out with this dress by Prabal Gurung’s Fall Ready-to-Wear 2013 show. There’s a fabulous ease to this dress while still looking chic that would make it ideal for Dorne.
If any house is going to be able to work a strapless peplum top and capri pant, it is absolutely the Martells. Both of these looks by Christian Siriano would be perfect fits. I could especially see Nymeria or Sarella rocking these.
Speaking of the Sand Snakes, just try and tell us that this red dress by Reem Acra isn’t right up their alley.
