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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

      • 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…

  • 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.

      • 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.

  • Love this, love her!

  • Is she wearing sheer tights or actually blue with cold?

  • 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! 

  • 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.

  • The shoes are totally Khaleesi. Love it!

  • julnyes

    She is unrecognizable to me outside of the show.

  • littlemissstrange

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