While you may recognise Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth, one of Westeros’ most fearsome swordmasters in the hit HBO TV show Game of Thrones, the actress is actually something of a fashion icon outside the green room.The gymnast-turned-model-turned-actress has not only made a name for herself in Hollywood, but has become a red carpet sensation over the years thanks to her stand-out looks.And for her latest appearance, she didn’t disappoint.The Game of Thrones actress arrived at the 2019 BFI Film Festival red carpet wearing a hypnotic couture gown as she led the glamour for the opening gala premiere for ‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’.The 40-year-old was joined on the red carpet by her co-star, former Slumdog Millionnaire actor Dev Patel.But, all eyes were on Gwendoline as she turned heads wearing a striking Aeriform dress by Iris van Herpen featuring a dramatic ombre effect. The breathtaking dress is from the label’s autumn/winter 2019 couture collection and features an off-the-shoulder neckline, sheer panels and a dramatic ombre effect.Gwendoline styled her structured dress with a pair of red, pointed shoes and wore her blonde hair slicked back. A pop of red lipstick completed the look. It’s not the first time the Game of Thrones star has stolen the show at a red carpet event.

Colleen Atwood is one of Hollywood’s most esteemed costume designers [Photo: Getty] You might not know her name, but you’ll definitely know her work. If you’ve ever lusted over an amazingly intricate costume in a Hollywood movie, chances are it was the work of esteemed costume maker Colleen Atwood. The Award winning designer has already collected three Oscars for her work on the films ‘Chicago’, ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and that’s just the tip of the cinematic iceberg. When I was younger costume design wasn’t really on my radar.
Before Kate Young hit the red carpet at InStyle’s Awards in Los Angeles last week, she was FaceTiming with just one of her many A-list clients. “The James Bond premiere was today in London and Rachel [Weisz] went to that and I was like, ‘Oh that looks good. I like the bag. OK. Good.’”Of all the jobs the iPhone’s made easier, that of a celebrity stylist might be #1. “If they are on a press tour and they are in Russia, I can see them before,” says Young, the 39-year-old platinum blonde responsible for such impeccably pulled together women as Selena Gomez, Dakota Johnson, and Sienna Miller. “Literally they call me and I’m like ‘Oh you look good. You should wear more lipstick.’ I see them all before they go out, which is amazing.” Between blogs breathlessly documenting every dress, shoe, and lipstick an actress wears, and the nonstop stream of social media, celebrities have started wearing five, 10 or even 15 outfits in the 24 hours they spend promoting their latest project in New York or London. That means Young, whose clients collectively gather more attention than any other stylist’s, is responsible for a staggering number of never-before-seen looks. “She’s such a powerful stylist that she gets the best stuff,” Miller told us while promoting her new film, Burnt. “And I really understand the value of having someone who can pull the stuff before anyone else.”In the past year alone, Young has turned an ex-Disney star into a Vuitton-wearing cool kid, an awkward Hollywood heiress who starred in the cheesiest movie of the year (century?) into a couture-wearing covergirl, and a boho-loving Brit into a polished Oscar nominee. "I like doing all different people,” she says when asked if she has any favorites. “It’s more about the women for me. I get really into figuring out who they are and what their style is going to be. One isn’t better than the other; I get more Instagram followers for the younger ones.”Speaking of Instagram, Young has nearly 50K followers, each of whom tune in daily to see who she’s dressed in which just-off-the runway look. She was the first stylist to score a collaboration with Target, one of the first to dress her client’s in Monse (fall’s most talked about label), and might be single-handedly credited for shaping what a best dressed actress looks like in 2015. So what goes into building the perfect outfit? Right now, Young’s feeling pale colors for fall. “I usually gravitate towards navy and charcoal and black, but I’m really into cream and camel for fall,” she says. “And I really love knits—knit dresses and knit skirts, brown suede, which is something I never thought I would say, but I really like it.” The one thing she won’t touch? Turquoise.For further proof of Young’s genius, here are her clients, before and after Kate.

Emma Watson isn’t one to shy away from saying what she thinks, particularly when defending women’s rights – just one of the reasons why she makes such a brilliant UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. The actress has spoken numerous times about gender equality, most notably in her game-changing speeches for the UN, and she’s now calling out sexism in Hollywood in a way that everyone understands. As part of a larger piece by The Guardian on the industry’s sexist practices, the “Perks Of Being A Wallflower” star has used hard-hitting figures to show how few women are key players in the film world.
