This post is dark and full of spoilers.
First of all, let me start by saying how massively OBSESSED I am with Game of Thrones. I’ve seen all the episodes, read all the fan theories (CleganeBowl, R+L=J, return of Lady Stoneheart – you name it), read all the books (JK, just one), prayed to the Lord of Light when I’m down (JK again). I’m sure most of you can relate to it. What I’m also obsessed about is the dominance of female characters in the show (yay girl power) and also their stunning style!
If you’re a fangirl like me, you would have pictured yourself donned in beautiful gowns like Daenerys, running around the streets in boy pants like Arya or casting spells in your exquisite red capes like Melisandre (thank you for Jon Snow). Fortunately, you don’t need to be a resident of the Seven Kingdoms to adorn these styles. Let’s take a look at how we can incorporate our favorite GOT looks in the real world!
- Daenerys Targaryen
Not only does the Mother of Dragons slay with her bold speeches and valor but also with her fiery fashion sense. Dressed in impeccable gowns in her signature blue color with perfectly done silver hairdo, the Khaleesi is always a sight to behold. To dress and feel like the Queen, choose freely flowing gowns in light colors, with hair in soft curls and delicate braids. Daenerys usually wears gladiators in nude shades.
For the outfit I chose a light blue overlay maxi dress (coincidently called the YARA dress) and accessorized with a warrior-like arm cuff and a pair of silver dangling earrings. Completed the look with a pair of nude heels.
Makeup – Daenerys always has glowing skin so a blush and highlighter for this look is a must. for a no-makeup makeup look line the eyes with brown eyeliner and apply a nude pink lipstick.
Hair – She sports very intricately done hairdos. I went for her signature braided look with two higher braids intertwined with two lower braids and voila… I mean Dracarys!
Dress, Arm Cuff – Flyrobe
Heels – Promod
The Red Priestess has a signature style seen in almost all episodes. She performs her blood magic wearing deep red gowns, long red locks and the (infamous) choker. And she really has cast a spell on us with her simple yet alluring style. To dress like the Red Woman, choose clothes in the combination of red and black to give that mystic and sorcerous feel.
For this ensemble I chose a wine colored gown with an asymmetrical overlay. Paired it with a skull print clutch and a pair of black heels. And of course the choker. Don’t forget the choker (if you know what I mean).
Makeup – Pale white face with flushed cheeks and red lips sums up the makeup look for Melisandre.
Hair – Her trademark hairstyle is the half updo parted in the middle. It’s a very easy to achieve. Just twist the hair from the front of your face and pin it back near the crown.
Dress, Clutch – Flyrobe
- Arya Stark
I’m gonna go ahead and jump to the fact that she’s my favorite character on the show. Arya’s style has always been tomboyish, be it in Winterfell or in Braavos. However, my favorite look on her when she was an oyster seller in Braavos, which showed her in a feminine avatar and was a “stark” difference to her original character. She usually wears earthy colors and has her hair in trademark braided buns.
For this look I paired a simple nude colored top and a brown corduroy midi skirt along with a leather jacket (because… winter is coming). Added a pair of tan heeled oxfords to complete the look.
Makeup – the key feature on her face is her thick eyebrows. To achieve this look, filled in my brows with eyebrow pencil to make them dramatic like Arya’s. Rest of the makeup is minimal.
Hair – the hairstyle is great for people with short hair who like braids and like to keep the hair off their face. Just section your hair from the middle, plait it towards the front, twist it into buns and secure with bobby pins. And ta-da… Perfect ensemble to kill bad guys in.
Leather Jacket – ONLY
