ANATOMY OF A WARDROBE: Gwendoline Christie

ANATOMY OF A WARDROBE: Gwendoline Christie

If we, the Brits are known world over for representing the quirky side of fashion and celebrating unusual style icons, then Gwendoline Christie is surely flying the Union Jack high. The actress might be (for the moment) mostly known to the masses for playing the rather unglamorous Brienne of Tarth on the cult Game of Thrones, but with her new role in the Star Wars film red carpets will come a-calling. And she is more than ready to rock a lens-worthy outfit. The 6ft 3in beauty has proven her love of experimental dressing many times, from her days of dressing up to dance at the infamous BoomBox parties to walking in a recent Vivienne Westwood show and subsequently starring in the campaign.

From her trademark platinum blonde bob in finger waves at SAG Awards to channelling her inner Greek goddess at the Emmy’s, Christie never misses a point to celebrate her je ne sais quoi. With her experimentation of femininity via thigh skimming shift dresses and androgynous undertones like loafers and boxy jackets, the GoT actress is a fashion force to be reckoned with.
