She was recently crowned ‘Woman of The Year’ by GQ, and now Emilia Clarke is enjoying yet another success. The Game of Thrones actress has been chosen to front Dior’s latest campaign for its fine jewellery line, Rose des Vents. Next stop: world domination?
Wearing an unbuttoned white shirt in one shot and a simple black polo neck in another, Emilia showcases Dior’s jewels in a very beautiful, subtly windswept kind of way, photographed by the legendary Patrick Demarchelier. It’s been a tricky time for the French fashion house of late, with creative director Raf Simons resigning, but clearly the brand will never fail to attract the hottest A-list actresses of the moment.
Emilia follows in the footsteps of Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna and Marion Cotillard, all Dior beauties who are firm fixtures at every catwalk show, and walk the red carpet in nothing but the brand, naturally (well, apart from RiRi, who really just wears whatever she likes). We should have guessed Emilia might be in the running for a new job, as we spotted her at the SS16 show during Paris Fashion Week, looking every inch the poster girl in an iconic Dior tuxedo dress and court shoes.
This is the very first campaign Emilia has ever fronted, and Dior is a pretty good place to start. Add to that her hotly anticipated film, Me Before You, out next year, and season six of Game of Thrones, and Emilia is one in-demand lady. Her GQ award sees her taking the Woman of The Year title from none other than Kim Kardashian, who was last year’s winner.
Picking up her award, Emilia joked: “I’m going to turn my Tinder on now. I’m Dragon Baby Mama in case you were wondering.” She also had a more serious point, however, saying: “The real women of the year are those struggling to find homes right now, so I applaud them and those helping them.”
We can’t help but feel that we’re going to see a lot more from this British actress. But for now, we’ll content ourselves with these gorgeous Dior pictures. Le sigh.
