Gwendoline Christie Is The Undefeated Champion Of Red-Carpet Beauty

On screen Brienne of Tarth is a sword-swinging protector — and recently dubbed knight — with an iconic, blonde pixie. In real life, the actress who portrays the character, Gwendoline Christie, is just as fierce, but instead of the battlefield, her prowess takes center stage on the red carpet (and the occasional runway).

Among the massive ensemble cast, Brienne is one of the only characters on Game of Thrones who maintains the same look through all eight seasons. On the other hand, Christie is serving new looks off screen every chance she gets. The actress tends to keep a low profile when she's not filming, but when she does step into the spotlight, she steals it — every single time. Seriously, if you thought Brienne's Oathkeeper was deadly, then you haven't seen Christie in a smoky eye.

Christie was still flying low under the radar in 2012, but even then, it was impossible to ignore how she owned a red carpet with her Brienne of Tarth pompadour in full force.

After stepping her blonde hair color up to platinum, Christie stepped out onto the Screen Actors Guild Awards in 2017 with the edgiest — extra -short — bob of all time.

A year later, Christie grew out her pixie a few inches, arriving at the season seven premiere of GoT looking like a Disney princess.

Just because Christie tends to forgo eyeshadow for a bold lip doesn't mean she's against playing with both. Proof: Her metallic lids and pink lips at the Welcome To Marwen premiere.

Although we still don't know the fate of Christie's character on GoT, we do know that wherever she goes next, she'll be serving looks. Case in point: her shoulder-grazing bob and show-stopping ensemble at the show's eighth, and final, season premiere.
