Sophie Turner in Tatler UK, April 2014 [x]
….She loved nothing so well as tales of knightly valor. Men would say she had my look, but she will grow into a woman far more beautiful than I ever was, you can see that. I often sent away her maid so I could brush her hair myself. She had auburn hair, lighter than mine, and so thick and soft… the red in it would catch the light of the torches and shine like copper.
Rockin the Khalasar
Fierce outfits for Dany when she’s leading her people. Khaleesi could show her feminine side with skirts and frills, while still proving she’s a bad ass with leather and animal skulls. The shoulders of the first outfit, and the boots of the last are similar in texture to Dragon skin, making them perfect for the Mother of Dragons. In traditional Dorthraki style, the second outfit features a leather vest, though this particular one is more like a one piece jumper. Any city would fall at her feet in these savage outfits from the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty feature from the Met.
GAME OF THRONES SEASON 4 PREVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so in the midst of my currently messy, messy life this shining gem has appeared!
Sorry for the absence, among other things my laptop decided to take a crap (even though it’s practically BRAND fuckin NEW) and so I haven’t had access to my files. I’m going to post again very soon and continue my feature on Savage Beauty now that I finally can!
Thanks for all the love and support~ Happy to see this wasn’t just sitting here dying while I was gone! You all are amazing <3
A Feast for Crows
These two black feather masterpieces from the Alexander McQueen ‘Savage Beauty’ exhibit inspire thoughts of The Night’s Watch.
The black feathers could also represent the ravens used through out Westeros to deliver messages!
The next few posts will be a mini-feature dedicated to the “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011. There are many pieces from this collection that, in my opinion, portray G.R.R Martin’s characters through fabric. This exhibit displayed everything from the deep monochromatic black of the Night’s Watch to the flamboyant colors of the Tyroshi.
John Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012 for the Queen in North Sansa Stark~
This ensemble combines Sansa’s preference for pastel colors and the need for warmth in the icy cold of the North.
