In the light of Valentines Day being yesterday, we have to admit, we have a crush. A girl crush that is, on Game of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke. With her fair skin, tousled waves and aqueous eyes, Emilia has the kind of ethereal beauty reserved for medieval princesses or angels. She is also an incredibly talented actress. Those who know and love her as icy blonde Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones may be surprised to know that she has also quite a bit of success acting on stage, and that she had recently played the timeless role of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the Cort Theatre and is set to play the role of Sarah Connor in the next installment of the Terminator series. Talent, ambition, versatility, style, beauty. How could anyone not love this girl?
Acting as cover girl for the February issue of WSJ Magazine, Emilia looks understatedly chic and low-key as she poses in knit pieces from upscale designers such as Calvin Klein, Rag & Bone and Oscar de la Renta. The photos are shot by Lachlan Bailey in slightly over-cast weather on a sandy beach, giving the photos a bohemian, Pacific North-West feel, that makes our Vancouver-dwelling hearts feel warm and fuzzy. Emilia looks natural, candid and effortlessly beautiful as she laughs and runs around on the beach. A total bohemian beauty. In our perfect world, Emilia would be a model for an Indiverve campaign. One day.
