Did you spot the secret message sewn on Emilia Clarke’s Game of Thrones premiere dress?

What does it all mean?

What does it all mean?

Game of Thrones season eight is on its way – and we officially can’t wait.

Our past few months have been dominated by Game of Thrones news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros, with the Season 8 premiere taking place just this week.

It’s hardly surprising therefore this is what dominated the news this month, rather than Sophie Turner confessing to being banned from washing her hair during filming or Kit Harrington taking one of his props as a momento.

Emilia Clarke made the most news. The actress became a talking point this month for opening up about tragically suffering two brain aneurysms. And then, the realisation that we’ve all been pronouncing her character Daenerys Targaryen’s title ‘Khaleesi’ wrong made her even more of a conversation topic.


It was the 32-year-old’s premiere dress however that made the most noise at the Game of Thrones New York premiere, with the actress donning an aquamarine Valentino gown for the occasion.

Eagle-eyed viewers however spotted that there was more to this dress than originally meets the eye, with the gown seeming to be embroidered with a quote, hidden behind a transparent layer of chiffon.

No, it's not a GoT spoiler - Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli featured quotes on all of his new collection, getting the help of four poets to create the wording.

The lines of choice on Emilia’s dress?

‘Leave your door open for me. I might sleepwalk into your arms’.
