When your nickname is “Stormborn” because you were born in a place called Dragonstone during a great storm which killed your mother and destroyed your fleet, when you eat the raw heart of a stallion when you are pregnant to show the Dothraki women that you have the balls to be their queen and when you walk into your husbands pyre with three petrified dragon eggs and walks out of the flames with fire breathing dragons is when you know that this is a woman who’s fashion choices you must pay heed to.
I think it’s needless to say that I am a huge Game of Thrones fan and I love Khaleesi more than anyone. I admit I spent the greater part of last season asking “isn’t she going to change out of that blue dress?” but of all the women in the story Daenerys Targaryen packs a lot of strength, style and character.
Daenerys begins “Game of Thrones” like most of its female characters, as someone to be married off so that her family can maintains its power. She marries Khal Drogo of Dothraki, and is destined to stand idly by her husband for the rest of her life. But things change and she eventually becomes his equal and this change evolves in her clothing style, from soft clothes to warrior princess armor that means business as well as retain its sexiness and edge. She is strong and yet she has not lost the ability to feel and this reflects in the soft and hard elements of her clothes.
After the death of her own child and she becoming the mother to her dragons Khaleesi wears a lot of blue, which is perhaps fitting as that is the colour of motherhood in Qarth. Yet whatever she wears she is always battle ready and this is perhaps what I find every attractive. It’s true that we don’t need to fight armies and slay dragons on a daily basis but certainly her clothes are a whole lot cooler than ours. It is edgy without loosing its sex appeal and we can certain incorporate it’s essence to add some attitude to our day to day looks.
She wears things like ‘dragon tops’ ( and here we were thinking a crop top was bold) which has things like scales and her accessories are to die for and by that I mean her dragons. Why am I going on and on about dragons?? well I have been in a fire breathing mode lately and the timing seemed just right for this post 🙂
So without much ado here is my Danys and my lust list of Khaleesi inspired fashion.
