Gwendoline Christie: From Westeros to Runways, A Decade of Fashion Elegance
Gwendoline Christie, initially discouraged for her height in the acting world, defied odds with her iconic role as Brienne of Tarth in “Game of Thrones.” Since then, she has not only captivated audiences on-screen but also made a mark on fashion runways. Despite standing tall at 6 feet 3 inches, Christie’s runway journey began after her breakthrough in the hit series.
Before gracing runways, she had a modeling stint, posing for photographer Polly Borland in a series titled “Bunny.” Christie’s runway debut came after her remarkable performance in “Game of Thrones.” Over the last decade, she has been invited to walk for renowned brands like Miu Miu, Thom Browne, and Tomo Koizumi, showcasing dramatic silhouettes that reflect her theatrical background.
In a recent highlight, Christie closed Maison Margiela’s spring 2024 couture show in Paris, donning a porcelain doll-inspired look reminiscent of Bette Davis in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane…?” Her runway journey stands as a testament to breaking stereotypes and embracing individuality in the world of fashion.
