Khaleesi Chic featuring Diane Kruger

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.

Interactive Thursday: the Phoenix Corps

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:

Best Dressed: Salma Hayek (Cannes Closing IV)

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:

Superheroines of the Night: Emmanuelle Béart and Diane Kruger (Cannes Closing II)

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:

In the middle are Michelle Rodriguez, Karolina Kurkova, Kate Beckinsale and more. Best Dressed Overall?

Best Dressed: Diane Kruger (AmfAR VII)

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:

Worst Dressed (AmfAR VI)

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.
