The premiere of the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones airs tonight at 9 p.m., but if you can’t stand the suspense, the person who wins the Iron Throne is …
Yeah, I really don’t know who winds up sitting on the throne or whether anyone at all does. I do think there’s a lot to be said for Ser Pounce the cat, despite the showrunners’ joking interview about how Pounce lost one of his nine lives behind the scenes. Of course, cats are by nature tyrants, which is normally a highly undesirable trait, but OMG THEY ARE SO CUTE and who wouldn’t watch that show?
I can tell you that the all-time winner of the Game of Thrones red carpet is Gwendoline Christie, who plays sword-wielding Brienne of Tarth for this Iris van Herpen gown she wore to the show’s New York City premiere last week.
Forget the Kingslayer. Brienne just slayed every-fucking-body. The only thing that would have made this straight-off-the-runway look better? If the gown had been one of van Herpen’s signature 3D sculptural pieces and FROZEN in that position.
I momentarily had hope that Gwendoline had claimed an entire row in the theater so that her massive dress could be comfortable. I’m not too disappointed though, because she’s working this design so hard. In fact, I’m awarding her a special Judith Light Award for Fierce Posing. Congratulations, Gwendoline!
