Daenerys Targaryen is my favourite character in the HBO series Game of Thrones. She crept up on me when I first watched season one. I started out loving Arya (still love Arya) but then Dany started doing things I would do as every character I have ever played in any fantasy role-playing game ever. She’s a character I could have come up with and she’s the character I love. Thus I am working on my own Ready-to-Wear Daenerys look to wear at upcoming conventions, ren faires and the like. I follow a bunch of tumblrs dedicated to Game of Thrones Style and Daenerys has her own…maybe it was my crowded dash but when I saw Diane’s first two Cannes festival looks, I thought: Khaleesi!
This is an AMAZING dress and she looks stunning in it. I called it Gladiator Chic when I pinned it and with different shoes it could be a comic book superheroine look as is. Diane continues to be my ultimate fashion superhero.
So I’ve noticed a little bit of a trend lately. Fashion birds. I don’t mean this:
Malaika Arora dressed AS a bird (for a good cause). But this:
Diane‘s only real competition for Best Dressed of the night:
Salma is also in pink, but a very understated blush, and the gold accents just bring it all to a higher level of sophistication and glamour. She looks amazing.
Also amazing, especially after her strange showing at the AmfAR gala, Kirsten Dunst:
Fan Bing Bing wore a tribute to Atlantis (does that make her Namora?):
The starfish purse is a cute touch and yes, she has Princess Leia hair:
Not all superheroines dress the same. There are a lot of skimpy bustier and miniskirt combinations, and the ubiquitous jumpsuits, and when in doubt look for tall boots and chunky bracelets. But sometimes heroine chic is simply a matter of character:
I’m not certain which character Emmanuelle Béart is best for — a new incarnation of Doctor Who or someone in Gotham are closest, I think — but she definitely comes off heroine chic. And thanks to accidental colour-coordination she has a perfect partner in crime-fighting in Diane Kruger:
The 63rd Annual Festival de Cannes has come to a close with the Palme d’Or awarded to:
Apichatpong Weerasethakul for “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives”.
I realize that I say “Diane Kruger, in Chanel, is flawless fashion” a lot, but:
Diane Kruger, in Chanel, is flawless fashion. I honestly did not think she could do as well this year as last:
Dear Suzanne Engo. I get that you love them but Converse are not appropriate footwear when wearing a gown. Even if your gown is a Smurf-blue ripped up mess that hugs your body in all the wrong places. This is BAD. Signed, All of Us.
