Ok, not to brag or anything, but we totally called the collection that Khaleesi would wear off the runway. Yesterday, Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about what it’s like to play the mother of the dragons, and chose a sandy yellow dress from Versace‘s spring 2013 collection — the very same one we paired with her character Daenerys Targaryen’s costumes in Friday’s GOT fashion roundup.
And props to her for making it work, since even Heidi Klum couldn’t get the Coachella-ready, boho frocks to do her any favors.
Of course, you might not immediately make the connection between Clarke and Khaleesi if you saw the actress on the street. We’ll admit that the first few times we saw her on the red carpet after the first season aired, we had a hard time making the connection between the sultry brunette and her white blonde on-screen counterpart. As she tells Fallon, however, she has had one or two fan run-ins as of late, but, despite her pleas, she hasn’t been allowed to wear the iconic wig off-set.
Watch the actress riff with the host about CGI dragons and HBO ratings, and get the lowdown her nude scene in her new Broadway role in the videos below:
