Emilia Clarke in Tabitha Simmons on Letterman

Posted on March 14, 2013

The Mother of Dragons is working the oddest little melange of styles.


Emilia Clarke makes an appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ in NYC wearing Tabitha Simmons sandals.

Tabitha Simmons Spring 2012 Strappy Sandal

The hair, makeup and jacket all have a rockabilly vibe to them, the dress says Swingin’ ’60s London and the shoes are total “Sex and the City.”

And y’know? It’s adorable. It really works for her. We don’t think we’ve ever seen her look so cute. We also don’t think this look would work for a majority of starlets.

      It is an unexpected pair up of things that seems to work for her.   My only question, did she keep that jacket on?  Cause that’s a lot of WHITE for a sit down interview.

      • MilaXX

         I feel asleep and missed her, but it may have worked because Letterman’s set is actually pretty dark.

      • oldbobbydraper

         no, she took off the jacket.

    • lexilexi

      Daenerys looks great… but I love her as a blonde for some bizarre reason… with a dragon perched on her shoulder.

        Agreed! I don’t blame her for ditching the Khaleesi duds off-set, but I wish she’d keep the hair.

        (Though…I bet this is her natural hair color, and she’s probably all, “Why does everyone want me to keep frying my hair to a crisp?”)

        • lrhg

          Her Khaleesi hair is a wig -apparently some of the most delicate and expensive props on set. 

        • SassieCassy

          it is a wig. they cornrow her hair while she films.

        me too…she definitely is an amazing blonde.  so dramatic.

    • formerlyAnon

      I’d say it’s the dress that pulls it all together. Even obscured by the jacket, it has me convinced that it (the dress) has A Good Cut.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Part early Jolie, part Kardashian. All adorable.

    • teensmom99

      She followed TLo Rule #1 for sitdown–a skirt you can sit in without worrying too much (a little short for that if I were to wear it but with her legs she’s okay).

    • Sobaika

      I would done some kickass boots, but this is a great look. Luv huh.

      • SassieCassy

        ITA mostly bc i hate that style of shoe she is wearing

    • imperfectlaura

      For me, it works because it is black and white.  Done in any other color, even all black or all white, I don’t think it would work.

    • MilaXX

      Kelisi (SP?) looks cute.

      • Sobaika


        She had a funny story at Comic Con about being in an elevator and when it opened the woman waiting just stared and whispered “Khaleesi” before it simply shut in her face.

        • MilaXX

           that is hysterical!

      The weather has been so crazy in NY. 50s one day, 20s the next…She probably had no idea what to wear, like the rest of us. But she did great. Can’t wait to see her in Breakfast at Tiffany’s! 

    • Introspective

      the shoe and the jacket saves what could have been a first communion dress and makes it chic. nice work.

    • hmariec19

      Khaleesi is my spirit guide.

      And she is super cute.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I like the dress and the jacket, but she needed a ponytail, she’s looking neckless in some of the pictures.
      The shoes are hideous.

    • gabbilevy

      Man oh man do I hate those shoes. Everything else is cute though.

      • MRC210

        The shoe looks exquisite by itself but on a real live person, the shoes are creepily spider-webby and the gaps don’t look good.   Like the dress and jacket, and the purple bag her minder is carrying,

      • kimmeister

        Me too.  I think Kristen Stewart has the same (or similar ones) that she wore a bunch of times, and I hated them every single time.

    • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

      She’s adorable. And this is a really good look for her.

    • theblondette

      DISLIKE the shoes. Yuck. The jacket and dress go well.

      • charlotte

         I hate them too, but they kind of make sense for a Game of Thrones actress.

        • theblondette

           Only if she’s working for Petyr Baelish ;)

          • Sobaika

            The shoes strike me as spider-y, meaning it belongs to one of Varys’ minions.

    • http://aldonsusi.blogspot.com/ Susi R

      Great look!

    • j_anson

      I love you, TLo, I don’t think this is working at all. Are you guys really signing off on mermaid hair over a leather jacket? This calls for a distressed emoticon:

    • charlotte

      Is it me or does she resemble Portia de Rossi (and Miley Cyrus a little)?
      I like the getup minus the shoes.

    • JasmineAM

      Wtf is up with her hair color?

      • Sobaika

        That’s her natural hair, I think.

      • gabbilevy

        She wears a wig in the show… read somewhere her wigs are some of the most expensive props on the set.

        • http://www.facebook.com/martinlasarte86 Martín Lasarte

          That’s right, both Emilia and Harry Lloyd (Viserys) wear wigs, since that Targaryen silver hair is an important part of the plot.

      I’d love it if you wrote reviews about Game of Thrones, like you do with Mad Men and The Walking Dead :)

    • BrooklynBomber

      Those shoes should be tried for crimes against humanity.

    • marilyn

      I think the shoes and jacket go together, and the dress does not belong there.  This is not fashion.  It’s pulling what’s left in her closet, because tomorrow is laundry day.

      P.S.  It is nice that Dave moved the dumpster out of consideration for the guests’ Kodak moments outside the building. What was the round thing left in its place?

      I only see eyebrows…

    • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

      I love everything except those shoes. Oh Khaleesi, what would Ser Jorah say?

    • Carrieanno

      How much longer before the strappy/gladiator thing runs its course?

      • Sobaika

        Two years ago.

        • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

          True- although I confess to loving those shoes. So much more comfortable than the stupid hooker platform everybody has now. 

    • oldbobbydraper

      none of it matches! and when she sat down, the dress was too short. i’m not a fan of this.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AntoniaDonnelly Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      Love this, love her!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ginny-Ellsworth/534496198 Ginny Ellsworth

      Is she wearing sheer tights or actually blue with cold?

    • http://twitter.com/mirrormirrorxx Paola Thomas

      I”m just glad she covered up her cleavage.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      I think that she looks great, but how HORRIBLE her feet must feel at the end of the night when those shoes come off — BLISTER CITY!!!  OUCH!!!

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Cute outfit Daenerys. Cannot wait for GOT to start. I’m getting giddy just thinking about it! 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      Those “sandals” look like a pair of boots that were left in a closet full of mice.

    • libraangel

      I like it – I really do – but somehow I keep wishing it wasn’t so white

    • Anniebet

      Nice fun outfit. Imagine what her feet look like after taking off those shoes though! Her face looks odd to me – who has under-eye circles halfway down their face? And I can’t with the heavy brows.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      She sat down and that skirt rode up so far I literally gasped with worry.  She did NOT keep the jacket on, at least not that I recall.  It was like she was in her little Catholic Communion (or whatever they do) Dress.  I was disturbed.

      • bd73

        ::sigh:: sit test all skirts and dresses. it is mandatory. does no one teach the girls how to be women any more?

    • bd73

      love it. her feet must have been freezing with cold rain splashing on them though.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      The shoes are totally Khaleesi. Love it!

    • julnyes

      She is unrecognizable to me outside of the show.

      Go Dragon Lady! TWO WEEKS! CAN’T FUCKING WAIT!!!
