On Wednesday, as Kim Jones‘s Fendi spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection debuted at Milan Fashion Week, Emily Carey sat in the front row, snapping pictures of her favorite pieces. She did it partly for Instagram content and partly because “that’s what you do.”

It may seem like a normal thing for a young actor to do, but for Carey, the star of the new Game of Thrones prequel show, House of the Dragon, the experience was brand new. In a recent interview with W Magazine, the actress said –

I keep having to pinch myself. I can’t believe I’m in Milan right now.”

The young actress’ journey has been incredible so far – from being an unknown actor to starring in one of the most watched shows of all time and now getting a front row space at Fendi.

Carey’s exploration of the world of fashion has just begun. The actor says she didn’t have access to luxury brands growing up, but she’s excited to see what the future holds.

She added that

I was never into fashion because I wasn’t able to be.”

Carey showed that she was more than qualified for the high fashion world when she arrived on the scene with three stunning looks for Dragon’s premiere. One red Fendi gown, in particular, caught everyone’s eye – it was a couture piece from the spring 2022 collection that combined a structured jacket with a romantic, high-low skirt. This perfectly encapsulated Carey’s unique aesthetic.

While talking about Olivia Cooke replacing her as Alicent Hightower (older version), the actress mentioned that

She is just a phenomenal actor and I’ve admired her for years and years. I cannot wait to see the Alicent she’s created, because it is almost like we’re playing two different characters.”

Later, while talking about the wedding banquet scene (House of the Dragon Episode 5), where she appeared in an emerald green dress, Carey said that

I remember shooting that moment and being terrified. It’s such a make-or-break moment. If this 10-second shot of me entering in the green dress doesn’t work, the Dance of the Dragons doesn’t work. It had to land. was expecting a lot of hate for Alicent because in the book, she is a villain.”

The actress, at last, claimed that she was surprised how people have taken Alicent’s side and called themselves “Team Green” in support of her and her son’s claim to the Iron Throne.

Some people are being steered in my direction, which has been fun and interesting to see. A lot of people unexpectedly are admiring that moment for the character.”
