Emilia Clarke Wore a Breathtaking Cinderella-Like Gown to the Game of Thrones Final-Season Premiere Party

Emilia Clarke came to the Game of Thrones final-season premiere party prepared to make a statement with her look. The actress, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the show, wore a blue Cinderella-esque chiffon gown. Her hair was slicked back, and she wore a dark lip with red eye makeup. It was a modern, vampy spin on a classic fairy tale look:

Clarke, of course, has been at all the show’s past premiere parties. At the last premiere, in 2017, Clarke wore a black slit dress with a patterned skirt:

And for the season 4 premiere in 2014, Clarke was in a black halter dress with a sheer skirt. Her hair was down and curled, old Hollywood–style:

Ahead of tonight’s premiere party, Clarke told Stephen Colbert that she has divulged the show’s highly secret ending to one person: her mother. “Well, I’ve got to be honest, I did [tell someone],” she said. “Not just my dog…I told my mom. But the good thing about telling my mom these things is that she’s a vault, because she’s just done forgotten. I told her. And we were talking about it the other day, and I was like, ‘Because, you know,’ and she was like, ‘Do I?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, ‘cause I told ya. You kind of read one of the scenes,’ and she was like, ‘I can’t remember what happens.’ And I was like, ‘I already told you twice. You missed your chance.’”
