    1. she (they) totally deserve it, the costumes are SO ASTONISHINGLY BEAUTIFUL! it’s actually one of the best parts of the show in my opinion, because, not only the are pretty, but also they describe perfectly the mood, the simbolsim, the background and the psychologicall state of mind od the characters.

      I especially enjoy Sansa, Daenerys and Cersei’s dresses, tespecially Sansa’s because they describe her personality perfectly, they are just awesome.

      I leave you guys a link of the evolution of Sansa Stark’s fashion throught this 6 seasons, it’s imply breathtaking.

    2. I can buy the others, but the Walking Dead? You could costume that show out of Goodwill and it looks like they did. That’s not a criticism, realistically, six years into a Zombie outbreak; everybody, living and dead, would be in rags.

    3. TWD? Girl please. No-oh.

      Anyway, Jon, Davos and Jorah need a new wardrobe with some effort put into it. Pander to me, Michelle!

    4. Are you kidding me? They nominate TWD but not Vikings, Peaky Blinders, Penny Dreadful? (all aired at the same time that GOT) I can’t really take this “awards” serious.

      Thank you so much for sharing. The amount of details put into Sansa’s clothing, hairstyle and jewelery is just amazing.

    7. Well deserved! Michele Clapton is my hero and I would be just as starstruck in meeting her as I would meeting any of the cast members. Such a brilliant eye! 🙂

    8. Alvaricomg,

      Thanks for sharing — great analysis!

      I especially enjoyed seeing all of the different designs for the clasps. I have speculated that the wings were bat wings Sansa inherited from her Whent grandmother, but dragonfly wings are consistent with the other jewelry.

    9. Big up Ms. Clapton! However, I agree with other posters – Gabriella Pescucci deserves acknowledgement for her outstanding work for Penny Dreadful.
