Game of Luck

Lucky Brand is one of my favorite stores for jewelry because they have such a variety —and I’m a sucker for their signature turquoise. Over the years I’ve gathered quite the collection of earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets from Lucky Brand, and while looking through them I’ve noticed that some pieces could very well be worn by certain characters on Game of Thrones.

Starting on the left, this bronze necklace reminded me of House Tyrell with its floral and romantic characteristics. Each of the designs is reminiscent of a garden, which would suit the southern-dwelling Tyrell’s. I’ve had this necklace for about three years so it’s become a little dull and discolored, but with a little cleaning it could definitely be worn on Margaery or any other Lady of House Tyrell.

Moving to the right, my immediate reaction was that this necklace could be worn by Cersei Lannister. It just has that Lannister appeal to it because it’s bright gold and it also resembles chain male. It makes sense that it would be worn by a Lannister because this house has fought in many battles, and it also has an intimidating and powerful look to it.

I got these earrings from Lucky Brand a little more than two years ago and they look like they could be from Qarth. Qarth is a unique city across the Narrow Sea, a paradise in the middle of a desert. The turquoise coloring reminds me of Dany’s dress that she wore in Qarth (as discussed here). If the silver in these earrings were gold instead, they would be perfect to wear with her outfit. Thanks to my sister for modeling, the picture on the right provides better lighting and a better idea of what the color looks like.

I’ve hardly touched on the Dothraki clan in this blog, and seeing this bracelet made me regret it. The Dothraki are unlike any House or family in the show because they are horse lords and known as savages and brutes. However, they have such a different lifestyle than the proper Lords and Ladies of Westeros because they are nomadic and constantly roam on their horses. Because of the arid climate across the Narrow Sea, wearing heavy silk, satin or velvet is useless. The Dothraki wear cloth and leather that is suitable to constantly riding horses and moving through rocky dirt and rugged terrain. This Lucky Brand bracelet reminded me of this clan because of its metalwork, leather adjustable cords and utilitarian feel; it is decorative, yet practical.

Cersei Lannister’s Red Dress

The colors red and gold are synonymous with the Lannisters, a house known for its ostentatious wealth and power. It’s no surprise that we see the colors of Cersei’s sigil replicated in her wardrobe. The Lannisters are the richest family in the Seven Kingdoms and reside in their formidable domain of Casterly Rock as well as King’s Landing.  Cersei is the Queen of Westeros and then later Queen Regent in King’s Landing, so these high-ranking positions are taken into consideration with what she wears.

Cersei is the character everyone loves to hate, which is also why red is a perfect color for this villainous lady. Who knew being bad could look so good?

The crimson dress pictured has large sleeves and a V neckline, only constricting slightly at the belted waist. There are almost no formfitting clothes in the show because it is supposed to convey a medieval feel, but a cinched waist allows the women in GoT to show their figures without being too revealing. The waist on this dress is also reminiscent of the metal waist details on Dany’s gown in the post below.

Adorned with gold embroidery and a gold lion necklace, Cersei truly embodies House Lannister with this outfit. Surprisingly however, this is a rather casual style in comparison to some of the other clothing she wears. Normally for more grandiose occasions her hair is worn up and her gowns are even more lavish, sometimes giving off the shimmering appearance of satin or silk instead of cloth, which is what the dress pictured above seems to be made of.

This Marchesa dress worn by actress Olivia Munn at the 2013 Oscars is absolutely Lannister certified. Although it is strapless, it has the perfect touch of gold embroidery on the bodice and, like Cersei’s dress, it hugs her waist before it drapes into a flowing train. This regal gown is a modern take on Lannister fashion and undoubtedly fit for the Iron Throne.
