Games of Thrones is back, awww yeah. With it, of course, comes the annual war between your two esteemed editors as we pledge our loyalty to House Lannister and House Stark and take up fashion arms against each other. But first! We pause playing favorites and present one high fashion look per each of the major houses in play this season.
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.
Us? Impatiently tapping our feet while we wait for it to be April so we can have a new season of Game of Thrones? And tragically lamenting the wait for The Winds of Winter? It’d be pointless to lie and say that we weren’t. That means that it’s time for another post where we ask what would one of the noble houses wear from our high fashion lines if they were a part of this universe.
This week, we’re taking a look at House Tyrell and especially at the Queen herself, Margaery Tyrell. Therefore, there’s going to be a lot of Tyrell green along with some Margaery blue and plunging necklines.
We’ll start with a simple green dress by Zac Posen
This next dress by Valentino is something that I could see a younger Margaery being attracted to especially given the colour.
And of course, what would a fashion post be for one of the most powerful houses in Westeros without a little Elie Saab in their signature colour?
