Sansa's Purple Toned Gown
In Season Three, Sansa is trying to keep a low profile in King’s Landing, as a result she is seen wearing darker and more muted of colors than in pasted two seasons.
Sansa wears this purple tone costume when we first see her on the docks with Shae and at various points throughout the season.
It’s in the King’s Landing style but it has simpler lines with a lovely purple on purple fabric.
Margaery in the Sept of Baelor
Margaery wears a lot of beautiful costumes throughout Season Three that are quite similar to each other as they are all blue and revealing.
She wears this costume when she goes to the Sept of Baelor with Joffrey, Queen Cersei and her Grandmother, Olenna.
The costume features a lovely blue color with brown elements specially on the structured shoulders which is a call back to her costumes in Season Two. There is some lovely fabric textural contrast with the brocade of the bodice and the velvet along the waist.
Ros on the docks
Ros in Season Three is Little Fingers' assistant. She wears this bright King’s Landing style gown when she first shows up in the season.
It’s a light blue gown with flowing sleeves. It has red patterned trimming along the cuffs and neckline with panels on the skirt. The red patterned trimming is a bit shear which is ideal for the temperature of King's Landing.
The combination of colors makes this costume pop even if it’s only really seen for a moment.
Sansa's stroll with Loras
Despite the sombre tones of Sansa's costumes in Season Three, she wears a lot beautiful gowns.
This costume is again purple and it has a lovely ornate pattern which is a gold color and is finished with dragonfly closures.
This costume also has this hard-soft element with the hard style of King’s Landing and a soft drapery element which is poke through the opening of the gown.
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 all 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. It also signifies that she identifies with the slaves of the region and not with the ruling class.
Cersei's Red Gown
In Season Two we learned that summer had ended and everyone was getting ready for the autumn and a very 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's 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.
Margaery's Cut-Out Gown
Arguably this is Margaery’s most recognized costume from Season three. She wears it when she is 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.
Daenerys' Blue Tunic
As Daenerys takes over Slaver's Bay, she wears a blue tunic with grey trouser and boots. This 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.
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 is a 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
