Game of Thrones Magazine Covers – Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams

8 Apr

The magazine covers keep on coming for the stars of Game of Thrones as the season 5 premiere date fast approaches (4 days to go!) and these fashion publications are going in different directions with one actress looking more like her character and the other in a stylized editorial.

Emilia Clarke VogueWhen Emilia Clarke covers magazines – such as these ones – they tend to stick to her non-Daenerys looking hair and styling. British Vogue breaks this template opting for a dress style that wouldn’t look out of place on Game of Thrones as long as you replaced the flowers with something resembling dragon scales (the floral approach is more Margaery’s signature).

There is often the desire to separate character from actor and by embracing the look of Daenerys it sets this cover apart from the previous fashion magazines she has appeared in; this is Clarke’s first Vogue cover after all. Plus there is instant Game of Thrones brand recognition rather than pondering who this brunette you might recognize is. I’m still holding out for a Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Vogue.

Maisie WilliamsNow for something more stylized and Maisie Williams has already done the Arya cover thing for Entertainment Weekly in character and with a preview of her new costume. With the forthcoming UK general election less than a month away Dazed has used this as a thematic jumping off point with Williams in an oversized jacket and multiple rosettes complete with an excellent ‘don’t fuck with me’ expression. Arya Stark would be pleased with that.

Inside the issue Williams wears something which looks a little more Westeros in a dress by Gareth Pugh.

Maisie DazedDazed is available now and Vogue hits newsstands April 9. Both are available in print and digital formats.
