Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke ditches the Khaleesi drag for something a lot more glamorous, leaving her pretty much completely unrecognizable.
Emilia Clarke is featured in the May 2012 issue of LA Times magazine photographed by Ruven Afanador and styled by Deborah Afshani.

Seriously, without being told, we’d never have known it was her.
It’s a fun editorial, even if we think she’s not very good at giving face. But the real reason we’re putting these pictures up is to give y’all a chance to chat about Game of Thrones this year, which has been awesome. Also: No, we’re not going to write about it. It’s a show we’d much rather enjoy than have to sit through it, taking notes.
But amazing battle scenes last night, yes? And wasn’t it refreshing to have the story just stay with a relatively small group of characters in one setting, rather than bouncing around the globe, checking in on dozens? And Cersei. Completely crazy, dangerous bitch, amirite? Totally deserves a slap. And did Joffrey try to have Tyrion killed during the battle? Did Sansa leave or not? This is why we don’t write about it. We’d never be able to keep track of it all. Discuss.
Oh, and this editorial. You can discuss that too.
EDITED TO ADD: Of course, our main reason for not blogging Game of Thrones was because we knew the book’s fans would wind up spoiling details in our comments section and we don’t want that. Some of the commenters have done that already, resulting in several deleted comments and an annoyed T Lo. Seriously, guys. Talk about this editorial, talk about Emilia, talk about HBO’s Game of Thrones. DO NOT talk about any of the books at all.
