Emilia Clarke, the sexiest woman alive named by Esquire.
ESQUIRE – Years ago, when I was a grad student, I worked at an ice cream shop in Oxford called George & Davis’. Students from Teddies, one of the local private schools just up the road, used to come in all the time. One of them was Emilia Clarke.
She’s twenty-eight now, one of the stars of Game of Thrones, the mother not just of dragons but of John Connor in the latest Terminator movie, and Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive. It’s Sunday lunchtime. I was supposed to be taking my kids to Legoland. But I’m not—I’m going to interview Emilia.
My taxi pulls up at a house in Hampstead, an inner London suburb. Academics and writers used to live there. Now only bankers and lawyers and movie stars can afford it—you hear a lot of American accents on the street. Emilia’s house is part of a beautiful Georgian “terrace” (English for a section of row houses) with long front lawns, pretty pastel-colored stucco walls, big windows you can step out of. It’s just across the road from Hampstead Heath: eight hundred acres of hills, hedgerows, and countryside in the middle of London.
The weather is classic English summer’s day. It rained the night before, it will rain later that evening, but at lunchtime there’s a kind of chilly truce and the overcast sky has a certain brightness to it. Emilia comes out of the house to meet me—the buzzer isn’t working, and she shouts instructions apologetically from the doorstep as I fumble with the garden gate. She’s wearing dark jeans and low cowboy boots and a cloud-soft and cloud-colored cashmere top.
“I’m sorry if I’m shouting,” she tells me. “I was at a Metallica concert last night.”
Be sure to check in the gallery, the beautiful outtakes from the Esquire related photoshoot! Emilia looks SPLENDID! She’s just so so gorgeous! Scans from the issue will be added as soon as I get my hands on it. Enjoy these for now:
While at the Paris Fashion Week last Friday (October 02), Emilia visited the Colette Concept Store where she reaunited with her Game of Thrones former co-star Jason Momoa. Cutie pics from their instagrams and some of Emilia outside the store have now been added to the gallery, be sure to check them!
Emilia looked splendid while attending the Christian Dior Front Row during the Paris Fashion Week on Friday (October 02). She has been interviewed by The New York Times and you can find the interview below:
NEW YORK TIMES – A shift from courting dragons to the crowds at Dior was a welcome one for the “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke.
“God, I can’t tell you what a relief it is not to be rolling around in sand,” said the British actress as she waited for the show in an oversize tuxedo jacket and heels. “I am so happy to be in Paris and seeing the latest collection, but I’ll only be in town for 12 hours. Filming for the next season is in full swing at the moment.”
Given the endless fantastical costume changes required for Ms. Clarke’s character, it was suggested to her that getting dressed up to watch a catwalk show must feel almost low-key.
“Perhaps,” she said. “The costumes we have on set are utterly phenomenal. But in the real world, nothing feels better than wearing Dior.” (source)
Also, several photos of Emilia at the event have now been added to the gallery, be sure to check them!
Emilia’s birthday is on October 23, and @emiliatclarke is organizing a video for surprise Emilia! Be sure to send your entry in! For more infos:
Emilia was among those who hit the phones at 2015 BGC Global Charity Day held at BGC Partners yesterday (September 11) in London. Every year, BGC Partners and Cantor Fitzgerald, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate the 658 Cantor and the 61 Eurobrokers employees who perished on September 11, 2001 by distributing 100% of their global revenues on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and dozens of charities around the world.
