It was a bleak episode for fashion this week on Game of Thrones. Everyone was captured or just being really dirty and disgusting in general. Luckily Daenerys is back this episode to provide a little light (we have some insight from costume designer Michele Clapton about her outfit), and we are officially introduced to the fetching Missandei.
Click through to check out Daenerys, as well as a fish fashion statement and a few other things that caught our eye during episode three.
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Catelyn's Fish Collar:
Lady Stark has been looking haggard and tired basically since Ned was beheaded in season one. However, she groomed her hair and threw on some clean clothes for her father's funeral at her childhood home, Riverrun. The family's sigil is the fish, and if you look closely you can see it embroidered on her collar.
Melisandre Is Still Evil:
Melisandre's still wearing all red--the color of the fire god, duh--and still bossing Stannis around and belittling his manhood.
Daenerys' Boots Are Made for Walking:
This is the same outfit that Daenerys wore in the season premiere--we're hoping she changes into a different dress next week. While we were all about that dragon claw necklace the first week, this week we noticed the boot/legging situation she has going on under that dress.
Clapton said of the look, "The trousers are practical. The Dothraki are nomadic so they ride every day. The dress is based on the Quarth shape--it's the only other shape of dress she has seen so she has interpreted into her individual look."
Missandei the Slave Girl:
We first saw this stunner when she was translating for that douche bag slave owner in episode one, but last night we learned she is called Missandei. We also learned that she has a banging body. (See evidence above.) Daenerys needs some female companionship (since she locked her former maid up in that safe with the lord from Qarth), so we're happy that she finally has some.
[Medieval fantasy geek note: Speaking of females, I couldn't help noticing that Game of Thrones borrowed a bit of Tolkien's famous girl power moment from Lord of the Rings. When Missandei said, "Valar Morghulis," which means, "All men must die," Daenerys said, "But we are not men." Pretty similar to Eowyn facing off with the Nazgul, right? "No man can destroy me," proclaims the Nazgul "I. Am. No. Man," retorts Eowyn. Nazgul destroyed. Anyway.]
