"Game of Thrones" has some of the most intriguing female characters on TV. Whether it's Daenerys using her dragons to burn slavers to a crisp, Arya Stark slicing down enemies twice her size, or Sansa Stark skillfully changing the tide of the Battle of the Bastards, the women of "GoT" are not to be trifled with.
And while these women have become iconic characters thanks to the massive popularity of the HBO show, it's still jarring to see the women who portray them out of their GoT getups and in gowns and makeup.
Here are 11 of the women from "Game of Thrones" on the red carpet for the premiere of the seventh season.
Hannah Murray ("Gilly")
The way things are going with sleeves lately, these giant puffers will soon be the height of fashion.
Gemma Whelan ("Yara Greyjoy")
Yara is a fierce sailor, and it shows.
Gwendoline Christie ("Brienne of Tarth")
Brienne rocks short hair and heavy armor because she's got battles to fight and oaths to swear to what seems to be every person in Westeros.
Emilia Clarke ("Daenerys Targaryen")
The Mother of Dragons is famous for her long blonde locks and her seemingly-endless supply of club-ready dresses. Tell me you haven't seen this top at Zara. YOU CAN'T, CAN YOU?
Lena Headey ("Cersei Lannister")
That close blonde crop. The studded all-black ensemble. The high neck. The intimidating glare. Cersei wants a look that screams, "I will shove a little boy out the window so no one finds out I'm sleeping with my brother."
Maisie Williams ("Arya Stark")
Arya is all about the pants, a choice we can appreciate.
Sophie Turner ("Sansa Stark")
Sansa wears darker colors to let her elaborate hairstyle shine.
Rose Leslie ("Ygritte")
Ygritte is into fur and never showering.
Nathalie Emmanuel ("Missandei")
Missandei, like Khaleesi, kills it in a crop top and skirt. This is not a girl waiting to give her advice to a ruler who wants to use giant winged beasts to incinerate a whole country. This is a girl who's trying to get the attention of the bartender at the club by appearing patient and calm in a sea of douchebags waving $1 bills.
Indira Varma ("Ellaria Sand")
THAT. HEADPIECE. Damn, Ellaria. That's one way to stand out.
Keisha Castle-Hughes ("Obara Sand")
The Sand Snakes are always dressed for battle, and they dress in tones to match their nicknames — because they understand branding.
