Gwendoline Christie in Lanvin at the SAGs: unflattering or not that bad?


Gwendoline Christie arrived on the red carpet and you could tell that she really liked her Lanvin gown and she was game for anything. Which makes me feel bad, because this Lanvin SUCKS. The fit was terrible, there was so much extra fabric on the top and it made her boobs look sad. The sad little inverted ruffle on the drop waist was awful. The color was fine, but the fabric should not have been satin. And her styling overall was too severe. I hate to say this because she’s one of my favorite people, but she was easily one of the worst-dressed.


Kit Harington didn’t get to say any words because Game of Thrones didn’t win anything. So dour and sad-faced.


Emilia Clarke wore this hot-pink Dior, which is… eh. The one good thing about this dress on Emilia is that it means Jennifer Lawrence won’t wear it to the Oscars. I actually think Emilia looks fine here (not great but not terrible), but she arrived so late on the carpet, there were barely any photos of her and no one really noticed her Dior.


Carice Van Houten (Melisandre!) also wore Dior. I’m meh on the dress, but I love the idea of gowns coming with chic coats now.


Sophie Turner in Carolina Herrera. This dress is too “old” for such a young woman. It’s too big and puffy. She needs something simpler and more colorful, perhaps some hot new British designer or something. Also: there was a lot of awful makeup on the red carpet last night, but Sophie’s makeup person really needs to go.



Maisie Williams in Razan Alazzouni. I’m not feeling it. It seems more like a dress that American girls would wear to prom.

    Gwendolines dress looks like a homemade prom dress.

    • whatthe says:

      It very well may be the ugliest dress I have ever seen on anyone, anywhere.

    • Singtress says:

      I looks unfinished and “Plan Z” spontaneous.
      Look at the stitching and the “waist.”
      It looks like they had a top they liked and said “oops, we don’t have anything for below your belly button. Hey, this bolt of fabric is almost a match…let’s just sew it on the bottom of the shirt!”

    • MsGoblin says:

      Exactly! Like a Home-Ec project gone horribly wrong!

    • Darlene says:

      It looks inside-out to me!!

    • Jenna says:

      worse – it looks like the pattern mock up/muslin that once the fit is figured out is recycled into the finished dress’s lining. I’ve been sewing since I was little and come from a long line of seamstresses, tailors and costumers… and this has got to be the first time I’ve ever seen a someone try to use tailors tacks and fit lines as decorative elements.

      Hopefully it will also be the last.

    That GC gown is sad. Honestly, it looks like the designer had it on a mannequin and was in the process of tweaking it, and then just pulled off un-finished and gave it to Gwen to wear. It looks like an unfinished dress in the process of being taken in. Terrible. Poor woman, she probably thought it looked avant garde.

  3. Locke Lamora says:

    I saw Gwen’s interview with Brad from E! and I love her even more now. She’s so great.
    Everyone apart from Sophie Turner looks awful. I like her dress, even with the horrible off-sholder neckline.
    Carice had a lot of work done, no?

    • ichsi says:

      I actually like the off-shoulder neckline but not on Sophie. She’s such a beautiful young woman and with such beautiful legs too but that dress swallows her up. Gwendoline is a total fave of mine, not only because there’s finally a woman who looks like me on the red carpet, but why oh why did she pick that dress? It looks like a half-finished, home-made prom dress made out of old nightgowns and shower curtains.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I really hate that kind of neckline. it looks awful on everyone, IMO. Makes their shoulders look much wider than they are.

  4. taxi says:

    Poor Gwendolyn. She has a body meant to carry dramatic, clean-lined dresses & look like a goddess. This thing looks like an unfinished sewing project.

    Does Kit’s mouth always droop so badly at the corners or is it just the poorly shaped mustache? He always looks miserable.

    • SOCHAN says:

      @ Taxi

      I know, right?? I think it’s the facial hair. Keanu Reeves has the same shape of beard/mustache.

  5. Zaytabogota says:

    Gwendolines dress is awful, I don’t like pink but Emilia looks lovely and Carice looks stunningly beautiful, love the coat over the dress.

  6. CornyBlue says:

    I thought Carice looked absolutely stunning and was probably my favourite of the night. I did not see Emilia’s dress previously but it is so damn beautiful too. However are people ever relaxed with such deep V’s ? It just seems like one push and boobs are out

  7. Janet R says:

    I was trying to figure out if the waistline of Gwen’s dress was a homage to a stormtrooper uniform? I love her and she was worn some amazing dresses, but this was not one.

  8. Cupcake says:

    This look is an F. The waist is just dreadful. Sadly all of the GoT ladies missed the mark and they all look meh. Try harder next time!

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Oh dear, that dress makes Gwendolyn look like her head is the size of a pin. I don’t like Maisie’s dress, either. Everyone else looks pretty. Caprice is beautiful, but she’s so convincing on GOT as an awful person I find it hard to like her. I’m not sure that I agree that Sophie’s dress is too old for her, but I am used to seeing her in that silhouette on the show, so maybe that’s why.

    • SOCHAN says:

      @ GNAT

      Unfortunately, it’s not the dress. Gwen has a disproportionally sized head. It stands out because she’s a big woman. You know who else has a small head on a big body? Alexander Skarsgard. You can go for years and not notice, but once you see it you can’t un-see it.

  10. Bridget says:

    I actually kind like Gwendolyn’s dress. It’s different and interesting. Or maybe she’s just so amazing at wearing clothes that I’m fooled (seriously, she is so poised, I love her). And I think Emilia looks incredible – that Dior fits her beautifully. Carice’s as well.

  11. Betti says:

    *sigh* The GoT ladies have terrible red carpet style. The only one i like is Emilia’s but it was still ‘high school prom’. Gwen’s would have been so much better if it fit her properly and was a slightly bolder colour. As for the others, Sophie really needs to sort her make up game out – i get that she wants to look older but she looks like she was let loose in her mothers make up bag, those colours do not suit her.

  12. Jayna says:

    Horrible gown. It looks likes it’s a dress cut out from a pattern and is inside out and pinned waiting for my mother, if she were alive, to stitch it up on her sewing machine.

  13. ell says:

    gwen’s dress is… i love lanvin generally, but that was not one of the best designs even as short dress on the catwalk. the body is just a weird fit and the skirt is too puffy. that said, so many boring dresses at these events, at least she picked something different that could have been good if better fitting.

    sophie’s dress looks old and too princessy so not my taste, maisie’s dress is nothing special, emilia’s nice and one of the best she ever wore, carice’s look is barely ok.

    kit always looks depressed.

  14. Kri says:

    Horrible cut on Gwen.actually a horrible cut on anyone.Looks like the dog did it.And I normally like her.

  15. Tara says:

    I think Sophie’s dress is stunning yet tasteful. And I don’t see what’s wrong with her make up. I’m looking at the pics on an iPhone tho…

  16. Lucy2 says:

    Sophie’s and Emilia’s are OK but nothing spectacular.
    Gwendoline has pulled off some amazingly dramatic and exciting looks before, but this is kind of a disaster.

  17. What's inside says:

    Sorry, but no winners. Next!

  18. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Love the color of GC’s dress & the look of the fabric on the bodice…otherwise it looks like an unfinished home ec project.
