Gwendoline Christie In Giles – 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Gwendoline Christie In Giles - 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards

Gwendoline Christie attended the 2014 Fragrance Foundation Awards on Monday (June 16) in New York City.

The British actress wore a dress from one of her favourite designers: Giles Deacon.

This sneak peek at the designers upcoming Spring 2015 collection features a flamingo print etched by Illustrator Donald Robertson, who accompanied the actress to this event.

This work of art was truly celebrated when Donald held aloft her train to reveal more of the print.

Apart from the feel-good factor, the summery colour and the vibrant print, I love that at 6ft 3in (1.91m) tall Gwendoline still wore white Louboutin heels.

If she’s anything like me she will often be asked, “Why do you wear heels?” to which I always reply, “Why not?”

A red satin clutch rounded out this gorgeous look.

    Love her on the show as Brienne the Beauty, and damn when she isn’t covered in blood, mud and all sorts of other not so pleasing things, she truly is a beauty.

    Love this dress on her, and the print is divine.

      Agree with everything you said. I love that she’s this beautiful Amazon, and she totally embraces it. Rock on Brienne!!!

    Adore the summery gown, the train with flamingoes on it, in particular, is captivating. Don’t find the neckline and thin straps exactly flattering on her and the red clutch is an overkill imo. But she looks nice, polished and radiant overall.

    Love the gown on her, great fun choice but I wanted sandals and a lip to match her flamingos.

    No to the clutch, but I love the gown and especially the print.

    Do you mostly get that question from men, Catherine? Or even women?
    Heels are for everybody and Gwendoline looks amazing.

      both :D

        Please excuse me butting into your conversation, but I wanted to say that I’m quite tall also, and was asked by a old BF not to wear heels when we went out. Suffices to say, I’m still wearing my heels and he’s no longer around :)

    The dress doesn’t fit her properly – the top is cut strangely and it’s too tight across her stomach. That is probably the cause of all of the problems – it’s too small on her!

  7. Christine June 17, 2014 at 20:04 #

    Not liking this dress on her.

  8. Dressaddict June 17, 2014 at 20:20 #

    Actually, Giles Deacon is her boyfriend ;)
    But what a change from GoT!

    • Catherine Kallon June 17, 2014 at 20:41 #

      Didn’t know that.

      • sophie June 17, 2014 at 21:08 #

        Lol. Well she looks great and like a natural in his designs, so they are a match made in at least fashion heaven.

    I love the concept of this but the dress doesn’t quite live up to its potential.
    The fit at the bust and belly is “off” and I’d like to see more waist definition. (I’m not sure how you could do that easily without a belt, which would strangle the poor birds’ heads off.)

    Well, maybe I should set my pickiness aside and just enjoy the summery colors and flamingo fun. Overall I can’t help but like it.

    I love the fact that this 6’3″ woman is wearing a dress with long legged birds on it and 4 inch heels. You go girl!!!

  11. Rebecca Z June 17, 2014 at 23:27 #

    Fabulous. Gotta love her confidence and share in her celebration of her height and figure. She looks just great.

  12. Britta June 18, 2014 at 00:24 #

    I love it! Such a piece of art! Beautiful flamingos by the amazing Donald Robertson!

  13. amy June 18, 2014 at 00:59 #

    I love the print but not the fit of the dress. it’s a bit strange. that being said she looks nice

  14. Grace Patricia June 18, 2014 at 01:55 #

    The fit is not that good, maybe the straps could be shortened and the top a little looser, but the dress is beatutiful, though. She’s such a beauty!

  15. Gemma Rockets June 18, 2014 at 04:22 #

    Wow, what a gorgeous look! I love the dress, love it on Gwendoline, and I love Gwendoline herself. Look at that beautiful skin.

  16. Alex V June 18, 2014 at 04:25 #

    Her boobs look awkward, she needed a strapless bra desperately!

  17. jones19 June 19, 2014 at 16:16 #

    I really need to stop complaining that I feel like a giant in heels when I’m only 1.73 m tall. Look at her rocking it!
