Lena Headey in Jenny Packham at the “Game of Thrones” Season 4 New York Premiere

Posted on March 19, 2014

She’s a black dress kind of gal. “I have to wear a dress? Fine. Get me something black.”

Sure, we wish she’d embrace color and pattern more, but that seems like a silly pipe dream since she’s demonstrated quite consistently that fashion isn’t her bag. That makes us a little sad, though. She obviously has a flair for the dramatic (which is why this black dress works and that one didn’t). And like we always say to those all-black, no-nonsense types when they try to tell us they’re not into style, all-black and no-nonsense IS a style. You just have to learn how to interpret it over and over again. This just barely gets the job done for her, but it’s no great shakes. We’d bet there are plenty of things in her casual, day-to-day style that could easily be upscaled into something red carpet-ready. She gives off goth biker chick vibes in her personal style, with a tiny bit of rockabilly. Well, fine. She should probably stay away from the Jenny Packhams and the Dolce & Gabbanas, then. Get her in some DSquared2 or Betsey Johnson or Rodarte or Viktor & Rolf. There are plenty of designers doing edgy work that wouldn’t be difficult for her to wear. Wear combat boots and skull earrings, if that’s what gives you a twirl, but pair them with something fun, stylish and picture-ready.

Also: not cutting your hair with hedge trimmers would be nice.
