Head First
















































(ps: thefashionspot.com)
Cate Blanchett by Steven Klein for Vogue November 2006
Styling by Tonne Goodman

I would like to come out as a Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire mega fan. I have read all the books, watched every episode, and loved every minute of it. If you are not familiar with the series, I highly suggest that you check it out. It's incredible.

Now, I had an odd thought the other day - how good would a high fashion editorial inspired by Cersei Lannister be? It would be amazing! Cersei, by far, must be the most stylish lady in Westeros, and I wouldn't expect her to wear anything but haute couture.
 I did go on to "style" my own editorial (which consisted of browsing the latest couture shows and choosing Cersei-esque gowns and accessories) and it suddenly hit me that an editorial like I had pictured already existed, and it was sitting in the Vogue US Nov.2006 issue on the shelf right above my bed. Here, Cate is this regal, royal, and perhaps even evil haute couture wearing goddess - aka Cersei. 
All though this obviously wasn't Vogue's intention, I still find it awesome.


Tell me, do you also get inspired by characters (via books, films....) and wish the Voguettes would do an editorial based on that character wearing the latest looks? Or is it just me...
Anyways, enjoy your Wednesday! xx

  1. I'm such a big Song of Ice and Fire fan!!!I'm finishing the 4th book, but I'm trying to take it slow, cause who know when George R.R. Martin is gonna finish the 6th?

    I also love GOT's style. From Cersei to Cat to Daenerys... I'm even feeling those fur coats of the free people.lol Would really love to see an editorial inspired by these amazing characters.:D

    I've never seen this editorial with Cate but it's really something!

    Love,

  16. Ahh I love A Song of Ice and Fire! I'm currently reading the fifth book, and am slowly making my way through the tv series - too fun! I thought that the editorial was breathtaking originally, but now that you've mentioned Cersei - I can definitely picture her in these outfits. BADASS.
