For Game of Thrones geeks, Brienne of Tarth is a brave, ferocious knight with a code of honor. Known for her loyalty and unusually tall, muscular built, this fan favorite is normally clad in sturdy armor that makes her look more like a fighting warrior than a highborn lady. In real life, however, Gwendoline Christie has slayed more red carpets than vicious men in all of the Seven Kingdoms. Where fashion is concerned, she always comes to her battles prepared—not with a sword, but with designer frocks and towering heels.
Recently named a “rising red carpet star” by Vogue.com, Gwendoline’s notable style has also been recognized by the British Fashion Awards last year when she bagged an award for the Red Carpet Ambassador category. With a penchant for pointy-toed Louboutins, bright red lipstick, and classic LBDs, the six-foot-three English actress and model also frequents the front rows of major runway shows.
Below are some of her best fashion moments.
