Gwendoline Christie On The Runway For Miu Miu Will Leave you Speechless
Fashion is cancelled.
Everyone can go home now 'cause Gwendoline Christie -- aka Brienne of Tarth from a little TV show called Game of Thrones -- has gone and won fashion.
For Miu Miu’s Cruise 2019 fashion show in Shanghai on Thursday, the actor ditched her normal GoT getup that includes a full suit of armour and a giant sword.
Instead, she slipped her 6ft 3in frame into something a little more haute couture -- a leopard print and emerald gown -- before literally gliding down the runway.
Please note the Brit babe's slick blonde bob, her wine-red lip and that amused half-smile ... we are deceased.
There is simply nothing left to do but bask in this shining vision of sartorial perfection and splendour.
Christie's turn on the catwalk didn't come out of nowhere. The 40-year-old -- yes, she's 40 and flipping F-I-N-E -- started dropping hints on Instagram earlier in November, where we got a little taste of her Miu Miu lewk.
Christie has become somewhat of a muse for Italian brand Miu Miu -- headed up by Miuccia Prada -- and has been a front-row regular at shows for a while now.
The Star Wars stormtrooper modelled in some print ads earlier in 2018, and made her runway debut for the brand's Resort 2019 collection in July.
It's not the first time Brienne has strutted her stuff. Before her turn for Miu Miu she walked the Paris Fashion Week runway for Vivienne Westwood in 2015.
If that's not enough to convince you that Christie's a certified fashion dah-ling, you just have to look at her red carpet appearances of late.
The phrase 'hasn't put a foot wrong' comes to mind.
We guess it also doesn't hurt to be dating British designer Giles Deacon, which Christie's been doing since 2013.
Just look at this silky green pantsuit. Divine. (It's Giles Deacon Couture, BTW)
Here she is at the 2018 Emmy Awards, slaying in something by her bae, again.
Here Christie went for some Calvin Klein, and we swear by the old gods and the new, pyjamas-as-daywear is a LOOK.
It hasn't all been film sets and catwalks for Christie. She told ES Magazine that at school she was "bullied terribly,” but found solace in acting, fashion and -- we hope -- just being her gosh darn amazing true self.
“I’m happy out here with all the other leftovers, who show love and support for each other. All of the inconsistencies, complexities and ugly parts -- whatever that might mean -- can exist and beauty can be made out of it. That’s what I want beauty to be."
Us too, Gwen.
