Emilia Clarke and Gwendoline Christie set Game of Thrones premiere alight in dazzling gowns

Emilia Clarke slayed the red carpet at the New York premiere for Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season on Wednesday (03Apr19) in a tulle Valentino gown.

The 32-year-old, who recently revealed that she had battled two brain aneurysms during the filming of the HBO fantasy series, looked fittingly regal in a princess-style blue-grey tulle gown, with ruffled sleeves and neckline, while the strapless bodice underneath was embroidered with the phrase, “Leave your door open for me. I might sleepwalk into your arms.”

The British actress, who plays contender for the throne, Daenerys Targaryen, scraped her brunette hair into a simple ballet dancer bun, and highlighted her eyes with a vampish red eyeshadow, and added a classic dark lip which matched her nails.

Emilia worked with her longtime stylist and friend, Petra Flannery, on her look, while her flawless make-up was done by Jillian Dempsey.

Emilia’s co-star Gwendoline Christie, 40, amped up the glamour for her final GOT red carpet, in a dramatic goddess-style print gown by Iris van Herpen from the Dutch fashion designer’s Shift Souls spring 2019 couture collection.

The actress, who plays statuesque knight Brienne of Tarth, stunned on the red carpet in the fabulous dress, which features voluminous layering and vibrant patterns created with organza and silk.

Striking a pose on the red carpet, the six-foot three-and-a-half-inch tall actress, who styled her blonde hair in sexy waves, showed off her gown to full effect, lifting her arms aloft and enjoying her moment in front of the cameras.

Meanwhile, Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, chose a youthful look, wearing a black embellished Louis Vuitton cocktail dress with a structured bodice and playful skirt, adding rock star black eye make-up, which made for a great contrast to her platinum blonde locks. Her co-star and maid of honour Maisie Williams chose a structured bodice look, with a longer ruffled skirt and lots of sparkly detailing.

Game of Thrones final season premieres on 14 April.
