Season 7 Queen Outfits Decoded by Game of Thrones Costume Designer Michele Clapton

GoT-Sn7_FirstLook_11

Followers of Daenerys Stormborn have been waiting many years for her to proudly wear the colors of House Targaryen. And yet, she wore blues during her liberation campaign and whites during her rule of Meereen. Award-winning costume designer Michele Clapton has made us wait, and for good reason. Now that Daenerys is finally on Westeros, the wait is over: blacks and reds are here to stay.

That said, as much as she’d like to, Daenerys isnˋt the only queen around. Cersei Lannister rules King’s Landing and Sansa Stark is the Lady of Winterfell (and presumably a princess.) Their clothing choices tell just as deep a story as Dany’s, and Clapton is open to decipher exactly what these stories are and tell us about them.

Dan Weiss and David Benioff teased by Emilia Clarke during filming

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are always quite elusive during the off-season, so when they begin taking interviews you know it’s almost time for our yearly dose of Game of Thrones. The time has arrived, and they discuss everything from the convergence of characters and the increased pacing to the massive new battle scenes. Of course, they also get into the cause for all of this: as the endgame approaches, the Great War is finally here.

The 101 Greatest Moments of Game of Thrones: #80 – 61

season 2 Game of Thrones teaser poster

The North remembers, and so do Game of Thrones fans. But sometimes we all need a little refresher of what we love about the show, so this week we’re sharing the best of the best from the past six seasons. Yesterday we kicked off the list by counting down numbers 101 through 81 of the greatest moments.

How do we decide what’s great? Very complex process involving ballots, fire magic, Google Docs, swearing, Chipotle- oh and combing through every single episode before we even started the process. Our collective shortlist was hell to compile but a nerd’s gotta do what a nerd’s gotta do. Cutting that incredible (and not-at-all-short) shortlist down to just 101 entries was a terrible challenge. On the upside, we’re more sure than ever that Game of Thrones is consistently the best damn show around.

With that said, welcome to day 2 of our countdown! Please feel free to share your own choices in comments, because what good is a list without a debate? And most of all, enjoy!

Jessica Henwick speaks of Nymeria Sand’s Season 7 role and how she was almost cut

Nym

Last we saw the Sand Snakes of Dorne, their new ruler Ellaria Sand had just struck an alliance with Olenna Tyrell, in mourning and enraged after her entire family’s murder. They were all promised “Vengeance, Justice, Fire and Blood” by Ellaria and Varys. From then on, as part of Dany’s massive fleet, they should all be able to get what they want. Jessica Henwick, who plays the less bull-headed of Oberyn’s bastard daughters, Nymeria, has spoken up about her role this upcoming seventh season, and perhaps more interestingly, about how she almost did not get to come back for season seven.
