If there’s one thing that the Game of Thrones franchise has always been great at so far, it would definitely be its casting. Even the GOTverse progenitor George R. R. Martin is in awe of them. Game of Thrones has showcased some of the best; absolute gems of the acting industry, and the prequel House of The Dragon has managed to repeat the same feat. Emma D’Arcy, who plays the leader of the Blacks; Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen, has not only managed to woo the audience but was also the only one among the cast to earn a Golden Globe nomination for their performance.

How Emma D’Arcy’s roles affect their style

D’Arcy has been known to make a unique fashion statement in every award show they go to and manage to look stunning in each of their appearances. In a recent interview with Highsnobiety Magazine, they explained what inspires each of their outfits at these events, “I’m a trans-masc presenting person, and broadly, my instinct is to wear rigid shapes softly. I used to be more into texture, but now I’m gradually getting more into bright colours.”

“Clothes are armour for me. They’re essential to who I am, and I feel different in different outfits. Outfits are a very tangible way to control how people see you. It’s related to why I dyed my hair bright red a little while ago. I didn’t really recognize myself at first – I felt new, and it was bliss.”

What inspires Emma D’Arcy to dress more masculinely?

Fans have noted a number of times that D’Arcy’s outfits tend to lean more towards masculine fashion. They explained, “Rhaenyra and the many skirts I have to wear to play that character, makes me want to dress more masculine.”

There’s a lot that’s at stake in Season 2. “We will get to the spectacle,” co-creator and showrunner Ryan Condal told The Times. “But you must understand these people’s complexities before they’re thrown into war. And now that we’ve gotten to know the major characters as well as what’s at stake, “[season] two will hit the rhythms people came to expect from the middle run of Game of Thrones, but it will have been earned, and viewers will feel the tragedies because we put the work in.”
