Emilia Clarke: I live for the runway

Emilia Clarke has to give herself a "good talking to" when she spots an outfit she likes.

The 28-year-old actress may not impress with her style as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, but the same can't be said for her looks away from the camera.

She regularly sits front row during Fashion Week shows and loves soaking in the new designs that grace the stage.

"I will often fall in love with a dress on the catwalk - I love Chanel, Prada and Alberta Ferretti especially - and then I have to give myself a good talking to," she laughed to UK's Vogue magazine, adding that most of the outfits are too long for her petite figure. "Hmm, if you cut it in half, it might not look so great!" she laughed.

Red carpets are often a daunting experience for a celebrity and Emilia still remembers her early appearances on them. However, rather than asking who she was wearing the photographers were more interested in her identity.

"My first ever Screen Actors Guild Awards were in 2011, just before series one of Game of Thrones aired. I approached the bank of photographers that looked like it was about two miles long, and I thought to myself, 'Oh my God, what do I do? Come on! You can do this. Just stand and smile,'" she recalled.

"So I walked in front of them, and I stood and smiled, and then all of them put their cameras down and shouted 'Who are you?' So, let's face it, from there things could only get better really, couldn't they?"

Luckily this year was a different story, as the paps clicked away when seeing her in a striking Donna Karan Atelier dress with Jimmy Choo shoes and Cartier jewels.
