Small Screen Style: Game of Thrones


Never mind who’s going to wind up on the Iron Throne. The real question is which Game of Thrones female has got the most swag, says Anna Hart

This week, Game of Thrones Season 3 became the UK’s fastest selling DVD boxset of the decade, shifting nearly 190,000 copies in a week. Sex and dragons and rock’n’roll sure does sell. So, in honour of Game of Thrones' great achievement, we’ve come up with this fun fashion quiz:

Q: If you could decapitate any Game of Thrones female and steal her wardrobe, who would it be?

a) Cersei Lannister

Regularly pairs a wine-hued gown with an actual glass of wine, which is our kind of matchy-matchy. Big on embroidery, dramatic kimono-sleeves and thick belts, metal hardware (okay, boob armour), Cersei’s look is regal, moneyed and vampish. Think S/S 2014 Valentino

b) Daenerys Targaryen

This girl has been through a more rampant style evolution than Miley Cyrus. She started out in Grecian-style, Jenny Packham-esque frocks, essentially what Pippa Middleton would wear to a summer barbecue. She went through a badass leather/jute phase in the desert, but now that Daenerys has got her dragons and her mojo back, she’s a little bit McQueen, a little bit Roland Mouret, and a LOT of fabulous.

c) Margaery Tyrell

“Hello, J-Lo at the Grammys,” was one of my favourite lines in S1 of Girls, and I still hear Elijah’s bitchy riposte to Marnie every time Margaery slinks into shot. She’s definitely got something of the Versace about her, but Margaery’s dresses have a serious job to do, and that’s to wind Joffrey around her little finger. Versace is the right dress for the job.

d) Olenna Tyrell

The Karl Lagerfeld of Game of Thrones, outspoken and outrageously dressed in equal measure. Her headscarf gets a special mention, for being deliciously reminiscent of Little Edie in Grey Gardens.

PS. Honourable mentions obviously go to Arya’s drawstring-collared grubby shirts (kind of a New Romantic vibe), Ygritte’s global wanderer outerwear (a bit Belstaff, a bit Dolce & Gabbana) and Melisandre’s Gaultier-influenced update on a vampish typified by Anjelica Huston’s Morticia Addams. Sorry, must try harder, Sansa.
