The 'Game of Thrones' Cast Stuns At Comic Con

by Rosie Narasaki

It's always somewhat jarring to see the cast of Game of Thrones out of their furs/brocades/silks/what-have-yous, isn't it? Whether it's seeing Arya and Sansa Stark respectively getting glammed up/glammed down, to go to the Glastonbury Music Festival, seeing the Mother of Dragons killing it on the red carpet, or even seeing Catelyn Stark villain it up on 24: Live Another Day, it's always a bit of a shock — in a good way, of course.

Well, this year's San Diego Comic Con gave us quite the treat — not only is our beloved Game of Thrones cast hilarious and awesome (Gwendoline Christie quipped that punching The Hound in the face was the "best moment of my life," and George R. R. Martin deadpanned that his "reputation for killing is exaggerated"), they're also really, really fashionable. I mean, I don't want to be hyperbolic or anything, but I recently made a list of ten of the best Comic Con (non-cosplay) outfits, and if I rewrote it today, they'd probably take the top five of those ten spots. Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Rose Leslie all made an appearance, so let's take a look!

Natalie Dormer looked as flawless as ever in a gorgeously bright floral mini dress — don't you love the black detailing on the sleeves and neckline? They edge up the look a little, to match with her awesome, Hunger Games- induced side-shave.

Speaking of hair, Rose Leslie's looks shampoo commercial-level amazing. She went simple in a sleeveless black number, but accessorized the look very admirably with some truly great statement earrings.

(Side note: John Bradley/Samwell Tarly is adorable).

Sophie Turner went a little wild in an eccentrically-printed jumpsuit — and she played up the funkiness with a cool braided 'do, and a thick chain necklace.

Maisie Williams

Maisie Williams, on the other hand, looked very classic and ladylike in a brocade-like rose gold cocktail dress. The metallic tones look absolutely amazing on her, and her hoop earrings keep it all fittingly youthful.

Gwendoline Christie

Gwendoline Christie might have been the most glamorous of all — she paired a fetchingly retro finger-waved bob (very '20s, no?) with a Marilyn-esque graphically printed halter dress (with quite the plunging neckline).
