Game of Thrones: Playing With Sunglasses

With all what’s happened in the final episode of the fifth season (don’t worry we’re not giving out any spoilers) calling Game of Thrones’ shocking might even seem like a euphemism – it’s worse than that, far worse!

Many are still trying to recover from the astonishing scenes and are refusing to believe past events cannot be undone, on top of having to wait a whole year before anyone even gets a glimpse of some answers.

Meanwhile, unlike thousands of mourning fans around the world, the protagonists of GOT seem to be carrying on with their lives. Seen attending social events, frequently spotted in public, running errands, you name it.

In consideration how much impact the series has had and is still having, we’re always curious to see what they look like doing their normal day-to-day things.  Like, does Daenerys still have that blonde white hair?  What does Ayra Stark do in her spare time?  Does Kit Harington have a girlfriend?  (Ahem..)

Well thank god for Instagram, an app most stars of the show have and regularly upload to!  Exploiting Peter Dinklage’s Instagram profile, who of course plays none other than Tyrion Lannister, we ran into this gorgeous photo of the actor carrying his daughter casually downtown on a walk.

Peter shows us how a simple and otherwise inconspicuous outfit can instantly turn urban when you choose the right shades.

This season men seem to lean more and more towards square and rectangular shapes with metal rims dominating (bit like a coat of armour?)

Ray-Ban RB3379 or the below Baldessarini B1122 are particularly similar, if you want to achieve the same effect.

Kit Harington

Who knew Winterfell’s bad boy would be a fan of…tennis. Spotted, smouldering as usual, watching the Wimbledon just yesterday but sadly with no strawberries and cream in sight.

Dark and mysterious sunglasses, a bit like Jon Snow himself! Even we’re struggling identifying the brand of these sunglasses, but what we can tell you is this particular design is horn-rimmed and you don’t need to spend a Game of Thrones star budget to get a pair.

This POLA by OPAL POAS015 frame  would suit you well for under £40.

Emilia Clarke

The planetary adored Daenerys has already immersed herself in other big projects.  Currently promoting the new Terminator film with Arnold Swarzenegger and here’s a photo of her from the Me Before You movie set.

Is there a better place for work than warm Spain, with its sandy beaches and translucent sea? This kind of setting unmistakably demands shirred dresses, hats, and shades. Emilia stuck to her feminine side and made use of a pair that reminds us of the below Chloe CE109SL model, available in six other hues. Chloe Sunglasses

Sophie Turner

Sansa, real name Sophie Turner, turns up the heat in cool, fashionable eyewear as we can’t but notice the exact pair of sunnies she’s wearing whilst she’s cuddling up with her wolf – oh wait, no that’s a dog – but it looks like a wolf right?!

We’re a big fan of Ray-Ban’s RB4171 ERIKA‘s too – an oversized wayfarer frame design in the front, with thin slight arms and the perfect touch of femininity, well done Lady Stark! Ray-Ban-RB4171-ERIKA-Sunglasses-at-SelectSpecs

Maisie Williams

Scrolling through Maisie William’s instagram proves she’s just as feisty as on-screen character Ayra Stark, but more in terms of fashion, partying and enjoying music festivals (no swords round here!)

An obvious fan of the huge round sunglasses trend hitting everyone’s outfits this summer, our favourites are Ray-Ban‘s selection.  So classics and soo nineties, we reckon these would go straight to Ayra’s list (her wishlist that is.) Ray-Ban-RB3447-Round-Circle-Sunglasses-at-SelectSpecs

Nathalie Emmanuel

Nathalie Emmanuel, Daenery’s right hand woman, is also working hard these days. Soon after the GOT season 5 premiere, she stepped on the red carpet again, this time for the premiere of Fast and Furious 7. Judging by her smile from the following photo, we can assume she enjoyed this project very much!

Do you dig her Ray-Ban RB2176 Clubmaster Folding? This is a universal model, suitable for both ladies and men and as they’re foldable they can fit in small pockets too.

Let us know if you spotted some other GOT cast member with shades on streets these days – we need something to keep us busy until season 6!
