Game of Thrones fans finally got what they’ve been waiting when the premiere of season six aired this week. After months of eager anticipation, people around the world tuned in to see what dramatic storylines would unfold and find out the answer to the big question of the show so far: is Jon Snow dead?
But one set of fans got even more than they expected on Sunday thanks to one cast member. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the show, gave a group of friends the surprise of their lives when she crashed their Game of Thrones party. After sending out a tweet to find parties in the area, Maisie grabbed some snacks before heading to the unsuspecting fans’ apartment.
When we saw these snaps, we couldn’t help but notice Maisie’s amazing eyewear. The Game of Thrones star decided to accessorize for the occassion with a pair of cool retro-inspired glasses – a style that’s so on trend right now. As you can see, her statement specs featured large round frames in gold metal and what looks like tortoiseshell.
Maisie also wore her retro specs on a trip to Tokyo the day before. She paired her fashion-forward frames with a white T-shirt, a black baseball cap and a pink choker necklace for a fun and quirky look.
