Game of Thrones Costumes That Slay

Text by Saumya Sinha

It’s not just the winters that we await

Our favourite drama series is back with a brand new season and before the mystery that lurks behind the North wall glues us to our screens, we revisit the extravagant costumes that have piqued our interest

Cersei Lannister

The hardnosed queen who we all love to hate has given us as much sartorial inspiration as the show has given grief. Her fancy, regal gowns, warrior princess jewellery and braided updos are as covetable as the iron throne. The anti-heroine’s clothing has not once failed to mirror her circumstances through seasons 1 to 5. Right from her signature Lannister reds and golds on silks and brocades establishing her power at the very beginning to her delicate pale blue wrap dresses during early seasons of turmoil and treachery to a more Gothic shift with black gowns after her son Joffrey’s death in season four, Cersei’s sartorial story is incredibly varied yet strongly rooted.

Daenerys Targaryen

Her soft tresses and mellow dresses can put all your cocktail gowns to shame. From wispy draped turquoise gowns with hints of gold, pleated draped dresses and structured cape-gowns to the rugged, nomadic Dothraki garbs in between, the mother of dragons has definitely the most enchanting wardrobe in all of the seven kingdoms.

Sansa Stark

When it comes to the symbolism of Sansa’s clothing, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Her prim and proper embroidered gowns in blues, greys and pinks with heavy fur-lined capes, were an ideal reflection of her delicate and homely persona. Belted gowns with elongated sleeves replaced the plain Jane appearance after her alliance with the Lannisters. While structured gowns with capes in darker tones and warrior-like jewellery appeared when her character gradually evolved and became stronger. Though we would love to watch her in fiercer-than-a-dire wolf attire, we can’t get enough of the pristine white thick winter dress with fur accent she wore in Season 5.


The dusky beauty always manages to stand out with her gorgeous curly mane and draped gowns in whites and blues.

Myrcella Baratheon

Myrcella’s wardrobe borrows a page from a fairy tale book resulting in ethereal gowns in ultra feminine silhouettes and shades. The shoulder baring designs make her look both polished and fragile with a touch of sexy.

Ellaria Sand

From her unforgettable mustard hue front-open gowns to the broad shouldered silhouettes lending a decadent appeal to her ensembles, Ellaria is always dressed to kill (no pun intended)!

Margaery Tyrell

While her long locks can put Rapunzel in a tight spot, her backless floor grazing gowns are everything that an Oscar De La Renta meets Zuhair Murad outfit would look like.
