Emilia Clarke, the mother of dragons on Game of Thrones, has been named as the face of high-fashion label’s Rose des Vents fine jewelry collection.
According to People magazine, the 29-year-old British actress best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO hit series dazzles in the first ad campaign for the jewelry line.
In her debut campaign for the French fashion house, which was shot by renowned fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier, Emilia Clarke stuns in a black turtleneck. The minimal makeup only accentuates the delicate blue-and-green Dior jewels accessorizing the look.

“Demarchelier captures the young actress’ natural, timeless beauty — a true reflection of the Rose des Vents stunning line of long and short necklaces in yellow and rose gold, diamonds, white mother-of-pearl, and pink opal,” the French brand said in a statement.

“Rose des Vents, the wind rose, is also a metaphor for creation,” Victoire de Castellane, Dior Joaillerie’s creative director, said in a statement. “Creating is about searching, turning things over, and then finding ones cardinal point and setting off on a journey. Creation is the product of a stationary voyage.”
This is Emilia Clarke’s first luxury campaign ad and will most certainly not be her last. Clarke joins the ranks of other gorgeous Dior faces, including Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Rihanna and Marion Cotillard.
