Game of Thrones’ final season premiered Sunday night (duh, everyone knows this), and before we talk about the fashion, which should be the most important thing, can we address what’s really on everyone’s mind? Namely, WHAT THE FUCK IS ED SHEERAN DOING HERE.
This is an insult and an outrage, and I love Maisie Williams, but I hope she one day knows enough about life to be embarrassed about the fact that she stanned so hard for this dummy that the showrunners let him ruin five minutes of a great show for her sake. His face is terrible, his music is terrible, and THIS CAMEO WAS TERRIBLE. But Twitter already did a great job of dragging this whole thing, so I’ll move on, because: you guys, the lewks this season are FIRE. (Warning: spoilers ahead. Obviously.)
You know we have to start with Cersei, because LOOK AT THIS BAD BITCH. She is terrifying and I am here for it. As excellent as those spiky shoulder embellishments are, the best accessory is her look of steely contempt. She never leaves home without it. Cersei knows that trends come and go, but a deep and passionate hatred of the world and everything in it lasts forever. An understated but nonetheless menacing crown doesn’t hurt, though. This is giving me major McQueen vibes.
This look is one we like to call “On My Way to Kill Your Queen.” It’s rugged and practical, but Arya’s cutting a hell of a silhouette atop this horse. Let’s just forget that shortly after this photo was taken she let Ed Sheeran feed her a squirrel and remember instead the time she wore Walder Frey’s face while slaughtering an entire roomful of her enemies. SO EDITORIAL.
SANSA. BABY GIRL. YOU ARE PERFECT. That belt! Those furs! That chain around the neck–not to get too deep here, but doesn’t that neck chain feel symbolic? Like, Sansa broke her chains and now she wears them as a reminder that no man is going to make her a prisoner again. And she’s wearing early Cersei’s hairstyle, the one she rocked when she was a queen on top of the world. Fuck winter, y’all, Sansa is coming.
Jon Snow is ready for winter. Turns out he does know something… about furs. And the subtle, nape-grazing Kingly Man Bun. I love this brooding little baby, I can’t help it.
At the first sight of Dany, Lindsey gasped, “She looks so good!” She also insists this ensemble is black, but since I’m the one writing the copy, I’m going to correctly describe it as a warm, somber brown. She’s ready to fight, and the dragon chain might be a little on the nose, but that’s Dany for you. It is a pretty sweet chain–this show is full of pretty sweet chains. Sweet chains are so hot right now. Honestly this is kind of a better look than Dany deserves, in my opinion. (Lindsey and I also disagree about whether or not Dany kind of sucks. My verdict: she definitely does. And why has nobody figured out how to make her wig look less fake yet?) Shade aside, this is regal af and looked great against the backdrop of Dragonstone.
Lastly, we need to talk about Euron Greyjoy, aka, Ewan McGregor as Criss Angel:
This is so hilarious but also really kind of working for this idiot? Don’t get me wrong, Euron is a grade A douche, but like, if it was the seventies and you were backstage at his band’s concert and he offered you some hash, you’d smoke it and then probably make out with him a little. The jacket is just beyond. It screams, “I’m debauched and mostly useless, but aren’t I kind of fun?” Also I just looked up the name for his beard style, and it’s “friendly mutton chops,” which somehow seems apropos. I really hope we just get to see him parade around in this kind of pseudo-glam rock shit all season.
And just because we love you sweet angels so much (and because we feel like shitty hosts for being so inconsistent with our posting schedule of late) we’re giving you a little something extra this week. We put together a few lewks of our own, inspired by our girls of Westeros. Please enjoy these irl takes on our fave outfits of the evening…
Queen C herself – Cersei Lannister y’all.
Lil’ Scrappy – Arya
And best for last, SANSA ❤ ❤ ❤
