Daenerys in Yunkai

Unlike in past seasons, Daenerys doesn’t have that many costumes changes as she makes her way through Slaver's Bay, the trade-off is that her costumes are memorable. This white drapery gown is what she wears when she mets with the leader of Yunkai. It looks soft and very ethereal but the iron neckpiece showcases Daenerys’ strong will.

Number #4

Cersei, Red Gown

In Season Two we learned that summer had ended and everyone was getting ready for the autumn and a long winter. Cersei’s costumes in Season Three reflect this change as her costume sport heavy fabrics. They also lack the same ease of construction and instead have a more structural style.

Cersei wears this costume when she attends Tyrion and Sansa’s wedding. It made with a rich dark red fabric that has a pattern and gorgeous heavy embroidery which a signature of the show. The neckline is wide and comes high making Cersei look strong and yet vulnerable.

Number #3

Margaery, Cut-Out Gown

Arguably Margaery’s most recognized costume from Season three, is this one she is wearing when she walking with Sansa and discussing Sansa's upcoming wedding.

This costume features waist cut-outs edged with velvet and soft gold and blue brocade on the bodice with structural cap sleeves. The costume is finished with her rose and throne belt. This costume has a casual elegance that makes it strong and beautiful like a Tyrell rose.

Number #2

Daenerys' Blue Tunic

As Daenerys takes over Slaver's Bay, she wears a blue tunic with grey pants and boots. It is the de facto look for Daenerys in Season Three.

The tunic features a dragon scale-like stitching which is for her house and her children. The accessories are changed up a bit with this costume as she dons a cape and sometimes a tooth-like necklace. It’s a strong yet feminine look which fits Daenerys perfectly.

Number #1

Sansa's Wedding Gown

Towards the end of Season Three, Sansa and Tyrion are forced into marriage.

Sansa’s wedding gown is sombre yet stunning. It has dull gold-grey color with a floral pattern. It has hip detail with metal coverings but the real knock-out detail of this costume the embroidery around her neck and waist which depict the Lannister's control over her, it’s beautiful yet poignant

      I have to admit it I am smitten by the Dragon Queen, she is beyond beautiful, just amazing. Game of thrones has set the bar for costume designs, so picking a favorite can be sometimes difficult, that is? Until they have a scene where it all comes off, and they certainly don't hold back on that part l;ol.
