All hail Brienne of Tarth.
Gwendoline Christie, who is up for her first Emmy tonight, arrived on the purple carpet in a Gucci confection worthy of only the greatest knight.
Christie famously submitted herself for the category of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series after learning that HBO would not. “I just had to do it for me,” she told the L.A. Times of her decision. “And I had to do it as a testament to the character and what I feel she represents.”
The actress, whose Emmys look is drawing comparisons to Jesus, arrived in a medieval-style beige gown with a red robe and golden embroidery. She styled her hair in loose waves at her shoulders and accessorized with a pair of shoulder-length gold earrings.
