Game Of Thrones VS The Red Carpet: Who Wore It Best?

Game Of Thrones VS The Red Carpet: Who Wore It Best?

After Wednesday night’s season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones, we compare the stars’ red carpet looks to their on-screen outfits

Gwendoline Christie AKA Brienne of Tarth

We fell in love with Gwendoline last night when we heard her describing her GoT character. “She doesn’t have an ego. She’s honour all the way through, like an honour cheese. A strong one. She’d give off quite a pong”. Looking stunning on the red carpet in trousers and flats, she was wearing a cape by Jean Paul Gaultier, and not by her boyfriend the designer Giles Deacon (he was there though, and didn't seem to mind). Quite a difference from Brienne’s battle gear, but still rather Game of Thrones-y, and we like it.


Sophie Turner AKA Sansa Stark

Sophie looked GORGEOUS in Marios Schawb and was styled by InStyle’s very own fashion editor Amy Bannerman (read about that here). Since leaving King’s Landing, Sansa’s been travelling undercover in layers of black cloaks and has dyed her hair black, so it was great to see her in something a bit more playful last night and with that gorgeous red hair reinstated. Oh, and LOVE that Dior earring.

Kit Harington AKA Jon Snow

Usually shrouded in layers of black fur as his character Jon Snow protects the Wall in the Night’s Watch, it was rather nice to see Kit Harington in something altogether more dapper. That burgundy shirt with no tie was a nice touch, but we were glad he’d left his hair and beard rugged (swoon!). To be honest though, we can’t imagine anything look bad on this particular cast member, and we’d be quite happy with him dressed either way.


Nathalie Emmanuel AKA Missandei

We’re pleased that this ex-Hollyoaks star is becoming more prominent in the show, if only to see more of that fantastic hair. Her character Missandei, who is partial to wearing a lot of the colour teal and sexy backless dresses, has a winning on-screen wardrobe (well, it helps to be filming in a warmer climate than Belfast and Iceland, like some of the other cast members) but this one-shoulder jumpsuit looked pretty cute, too.

Hannah Murray AKA Gilly

A few people draw the short straw as far as costumes are concerned in GoT, and Gilly certainly isn’t blessed with the most glamorous of outfits. In fact, her raggedy clothes are so dark that we couldn’t even find a decent picture of them to show you properly. Oh, and they make her hair all greasy, too. No fair! So no wonder Hannah got all dolled up for the premiere, and what a transformation. Top marks for glossy locks and, err, can we borrow that Stella McCartney dress please?
