STAR STYLE: Dressipi dresses Game of Thrones actress Rose Leslie for her LA premiere

Posted on: March 19, 2013


I got a call one evening out of the blue (long story) to ask if I could perhaps advise young actress Rose Leslie (formerly of Downton Abbey) what she should wear for her red carpet premier in LA of the massive cult series Game of Thrones. It was a no-brainer and the answer was of course “yes”. I pinged Tara so that we could turn this into a Dressipi double act and after meeting the utterly lovely Rose set about finding her the perfect show-stopping-with-style dress. Thinking Fashion Fingerprint, with her fabulous flame red hair and marble-like pale skin it was all about the colour green. Rose by the way plays Ygritte in the series. A week ago on Monday afternoon, Dressipi HQ turned into a mini-fashion-cupboard.


“It feels like Christmas!” said Rose as we all oohed and ahhed over the gorgeous Christian Louboutin heels. Tara and I whisked dress after dress after dress (and one gorgeous deep purple Issa jumpsuit) on to Rose. But it was the floor sweeping deep green Issa dress, in quite a modern sculptural style that took our breath away. I made one quick call to my friend designer Daniella Hellayel Issa who promptly arranged to have the dress fitted to perfection by her wonderful team to best show off Rose’s enviably waspy waist and willowy frame. With a dress in a colour that speaks volumes, it’s clever to pick strong accessories to continue with that modern feel but still keep things sleek. So this heavily embellished gold Christian Louboutin clutch bag was the ideal adornment. It’s almost like carrying a Fabergé egg it feels so luscious!


And now for the shoes. How do you chose between one pair of lust-have Louboutins and another? You have to focus. Really hard! These Louboutin t-bar heels in rose (how apt) gold completed the look to utter perfection.


We were both very excited to see the pictures that came through on the BBC and the web this afternoon. I also received a lovely email from Rose who said: “We had the Game of Thrones premiere last night and I wore the most beautiful Issa emerald green dress. It was so comfortable and I loved the feel and weight of it. It was a fantastic evening!”

And Daniella pinged me to tell me “She looks very elegant and the colour really suits her. Beautiful!” So there you have it. A Dressipi red-carpet moment. (And click here  if you want to see Rose’s red-carpet moment in action) Natalie x
