Game Of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie rocks curious padded coat to Paris Fashion Week

Game Of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie rocks curious padded coat to Paris Fashion Week

While it wouldn’t be our first choice to shield us from the chilly mistress of winter, Game Of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie has upped her coat game as she wore a rather curious padded jacket to Paris Fashion Week.

Look, if anyone can pull off the bizarre number it’s the mighty Brienne Of Tarth.

Heading to the Rick Owens show in the French capital on Thursday, Gwendoline put on a powerful show as she rocked the shoulder pads and a pair of towering black boots with funky Perspex heels.

Can we take a moment to drink this look in, please?

The 41-year-old flashed a smirk to the cameras, knowing those bat-like wing sleeves would be all over the high street in a few months.

She kept things simple under the coat, wearing a black top and trousers as she took her prime seat on the front row.

It seemed lucky Gwendoline scored the coat fresh from the production room, with models sporting similar padded coats on the runway.

Oh to have friends in fashionable places.

Even though Game Of Thrones ended last year – as much as we’d like to remain blissfully ignorant to this fact – Gwendoline has gone from strength to strength.

Starring as Jane Murdstone in The Personal History Of David Copperfield and with 2020 surely looking bright following awards show nominations, Gwendoline previously opened up about the role that catapulted her into the limelight.

Brienne, of House Tarth, arrived on Game Of Thrones in season two and went on to become a pivotal character across the remaining series, but last year Gwendoline spoke of her fear that another role like Brienne ‘might never happen’ but that she has come to terms with what that means.

‘What occurred was a shift; something spoke to me and allowed me an insight into humanity. Thrones, and Brienne, together they gave me a lot of hope, and a lot of experience,’ she said. ‘I’ve been dealing with this idea of loss since I first got the character. Now, it’s about stepping into other worlds and other humans and allowing that to happen.

‘It was so hard for so long. But a little bit of acceptance means a huge amount.’

Speaking to GQ Magazine, she also revealed how emotional she gets over the existence of Brienne, and how her existence on TV screens has been a step forward for many women seeing as Gwendoline is over 6 feet tall.

‘So many women come up to me and talk about what it means to feel represented outside of the constraints of conventional society,’ she added.

‘In 2011, I didn’t think I would ever see women that looked like me in mainstream entertainment,’ she continued. ‘It felt like there was one mould that wouldn’t be broken and diversity was not a part of the conversation. So the fact that Brienne existed? Wow.’

But just when you thought Gwendoline couldn’t be more boss, she goes and adds shoulder pads.
