Emilia Clarke wasn’t playing games when it came to her Emmys 2019 dress. The “Queen of the Dragons” turned to none-other-than “Queen of the block” Jennifer Lopez for style inspiration. “@emmys2019 WE BE ROLLLLLIN!” the 32-year-old Game of Thrones star wrote ahead of her carpet walk, adding: “@jlo just as heads up you have inspired this years lewk.” And as soon as the nominee stepped onto the glittering event’s purple carpet, we could tell she took a page from the 50-year-old superstar’s lewk book!
Emilia singed the Emmys carpet from the moment her Jimmy Choos hit the ground. The HBO leading lady was easily one of the night’s best dressed, donning a plunging Valentino number in midnight blue. Its deep v-neck was Jennifer-approved, immediately calling to mind the On the Floor singer’s iconic jungle print Versace ensemble (a look that, sidenote, she just recreated).
Emilia was advised to accessorize with sparkling David Webb jewels in opal and a Valentino purse. “I am one lucky lady to have the best glam squad ever invented… @jennychohair @jilliandempsey @petraflannery @jennahipp,” the fan-favorite actress added, giving her team a shoutout. “YOU HAVE LIT THIS CHICK ON FYRE! thank you thank you thank you!”
While, the television royalty made her love for Jennifer clear, fans eagerly awaited to see the triple threat’s response. Luckily for us, it came sooner than later. “When the Mother of Dragons meets #Ramona,” JLo wrote referencing Emilia and her Hustlers alter ego. “#dead #HustlersMovie I love u @emilia_clarke <3 #daenerys.” her words came with a clip of emilia excitedly gabbing about how jlo was the muse for look and she would be channeling star all night long.
