As powerful warrior Brienne of Tarth in cult TV series Game Of Thrones, Gwendoline Christie dons an unflattering uniform of heavy chainmail tunics and imposing brass body armour. But, away from the battlefield, the 6ft 3 inch actress cuts a far more elegant figure.
At the Game of Thrones Season 3 Q&A, Christie showed off those long legs in a thigh-skimming monochrome dress with a shattered glass print. At the recent fashion weeks she stuck to a self-assured, pared-back look, favouring simple shift dresses worn with statement coats or standout accessories.
On the red carpet, Christie plays to her androgynous look, teaming her severe, white blond crop with cool, offbeat choices like the gold knitted number she chose for this years LouisvuittonShop Style Awards.
