Emilia Clarke in Calvin Klein at Elle’s Women in Hollywood Celebration

Posted on October 24, 2013

The Khaleesi should not wear sheer skirts over minis.


“Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke attends Elle’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills, California in a Calvin Klein dress.

She should also try to avoid clunky shoes and outfits with no color to them.

It is known.

    What a horrible dress. Those seams make it look like khaleesi is wearing her frock inside out.

    • RebeccaKW

      Yes, it looks like the lining of a dress and not a dress.

  • NOLA_gal


  • mmebam

    It is known.

  • LadyCelia

    It looks like the seams are done with black velcro.

    No. Just no.

  • Jessica Freeman

    The dress itself is pretty damn bad. It’s a shame because the sheer fabric is actually quite lovely, but the undergarment is atrocious.

  • porcupie

    I’m on my two hundredth rewatch of GoT now (obsessive, me?), and I can say with some certainty that Dany looked better when she was in the Red Waste than she does in that dress.

  • Diego!

    Honey no… It’s a hideous dress… and what the heck happened to your hair??? What IS that? Go back to your room now!

  • newleaf1

    It is also known that Khaleesi has quite the beautiful, fresh face with lovely makeup. Khal Drogo, her sun and stars, would be pleased.

  • hughman

    It’s great for a cocktail party in Fukushima.

  • SewingSiren

    The dress definitely has a weirdness about it. It looks sort of unfinished at the shoulder seam, but overall I like it on her.

  • Kimbolina

    The black in the seams looks like a mistake or atrocious construction. What is up with that? There have been a lot of underwhelming (and worse) Calvin Klein looks lately.

  • Her posture is stuck on, “Shucks!”

    • demidaemon

      It’s really the cutest thing in these photos. Her dress, not so much.

  • Theresa

    That sheer is awful, it looks like the interfacing you iron into shirt collars, way too stiff.

    • conniemd

      Die sheer skirts die.

  • Stella Zawistowski

    Aaaaand another mess from CK.

    It looks like she wrapped herself in a shower curtain and its liner, all at the same time. Except the liner’s too short.

  • Kerri

    This just looks so sad….

  • MilaXX

    What a sad, ugly outfit. The only thing I like here is the makeup.

  • SugarSnap108

    Why was this dress created? And why did someone who presumably wants to look good wear it? I’ll ponder these questions.

  • ccinnc

    Very cheap-looking. (ETA – the dress, not her.)

  • stellamaris73

    At least her makeup is pretty. Love the lip color, especially.

  • Imasewsure

    What the hell is up with CK? Who designs (and markets) something this ugly?

    • NoveltyRocker

      Maybe they were curious which lady stars really could just wear a paper bag and look hot.

  • Lori

    I don’t know what’s going on at Calvin Klein these days, but whatever it is they need to get it fixed.

  • broke&fashionable

    She has a gorgeous head. And that is all I got on this outfit. Bad, bad, bad.

  • Sobaika

    I hate sheer mid-length skirts – it just looks like you forgot a slip or something. At least when they’re full length it looks intentional.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Go home and try again. What is WRONG with Calvin Klein lately?

  • JauntyJohn

    curtain liner over a ’40’s bathing suit.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Another chapter of “Beautiful women and the stylists who hate them”

  • Kimmu

    She, like Tom Hiddleston, is someone who is infinitely more attractive when they’re in their character drag than when they’re just themselves.

  • I’m sorry Uncles, I know you are tired of the comments that reference PR, but really, really, this dress looks like an Unconventional Materials submission. White curtains, stained with tea, over a place mat mini dress. It’s horribly cheap looking and those shoes are straight out of the size 7 box at the Goodwill.

  • Blair Sylvester

    I wouldn’t hate the dress if the sheer stopped where the mini stops, and it wasn’t so sloppily done and there was some color somewhere. I kind of like the soft metallic over the cream

  • Rand Ortega

    Holiday cling wrap. OUT.

  • The outfit is bland and full of errors.

  • Mary229

    She is such a pretty woman but I’m always dissapointed in what she wears.

  • formerlyAnon

    The sheer layer is too long. Fix that, and there’s only 4 or 5 other problems to work on, but that one would wreck this no matter what else is fixed.

  • KayEmWhy

    That is one ugly mess of a dress. Hate the mosquito netting.

  • Glam Dixie

    The dress is a mess, her brows are to die for.

  • Sarah

    In her defense, she looks exactly like the runway model does. Although the dress is hiddy in both instances.

  • decormaven

    Cute girl, ugly dress. Don’t even go there with the shoes.

  • another_laura

    BWAH! Thanks for the laugh, T Lo. Plus, tiny actresses must get their clothing tailored to suit their wee-ness. It is known.

  • Brookwater

    Oh….that is so tragic. It looks like the “auf wiedersehen” dress from Project Runway. Is that velcro at the shoulders? Are those pockets in the front of the sheer panels? I have sooo many questions, but the first is simply WHY??????

  • KinoEye

    Wtf is with you these days, Calvin Klein? This dress suffers from some serious flat affect. It needs some Zoloft, stat.
    There are so many dresses that will treat you better, Emilia. Well-structured dresses with actual color. Go to them. They’re calling you.

  • tessasouthworth

    Am I the only GoT fan who never ever recognizes our Khaleesi in her real-life brunettitude? Anyway, I agree with the masses about her fashion choices here, but she looks so fresh-faced and full of joy that it almost doesn’t matter what she is wearing…. Almost.

    • NoveltyRocker

      I NEVER know it’s her unless her picture is explicitly labeled. Hair and brow color has such a huge impact on some faces I guess. And maybe she’s doing a whole lot of intentional face acting on the GoT.

  • This is one of the biggest recurring problem with actresses in borrowed dresses. Many actresses are three apples high and cant get things altered. I’d have more patience for this if it ended just below the knee.

  • Sarah Thomas

    This poor girl is going to get this joke for the rest of her life. It’s like a kid I went to elementary school with who was named Jon Snow. He must hate this show, wherever he is.

  • Kelly

    What’s with the seams? Remember those iron-on patches they used to have back in the day? Solid blocks of colored. . .something that melded to fabric when heat was applied. My mom used them to patch the knees of my brothers’ play pants. That’s what I’m reminded of here — some no-doubt carcinogenic chemical patch used to iron these seams together because real thread is too expensive for fabric that looks this cheap.

  • Zubair Ghumro

    I like the colour on her but the dress with those shoe is just Meh!

  • crash1212

    That is one ugly, awkward, dowdy dress. Calvin Klein should be ashamed of himself. Also, those shoes should be burned. With fire.

  • Janet B

    Pretty fabric, odd seaming, odd dress.

  • Trickytrisha

    That is one “What the Hell is it?” dress. Unfortunate in so many ways. The breastplate underthingy is oversized, the bottom apron underthingy is just weird, as are the seams, the sheer stuff on top, the shoes. The whole thing is bizarre. Pretty face though.

    • Boulderista

      My first thought was “eewwwww. a condom dress.”

      • Trickytrisha

        Textured condoms?

  • jbj

    Mother of Dragons, that’s one dowdy dress.

  • marlie

    Ooh, Khaleesi needs to sic her dragons on whoever put her in this outfit. But she looks gorgeous, as usual. One of the loveliest faces in Hollywood.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I agree with all TLo’s comments, but what is oddly bugging me the most is that bizarre seam line about 3″ below the belt. WTF is that?

  • quiltrx

    Wow, I’ve never seen a dress that comes with its own slipcover before.

  • Lily-Rygh

    Oh, this is just really sad. Horrible, even. It looks like the sheer table cloth my grandma used to put over the top of her plastic table cloth.

  • It is known.
