Fresh from revealing the ending of Game of Thrones, or taking down Piers Morgan, Sophie Turner has taken on a quite exciting new role, and it's giving us all the wanderlust.

The British actor, of course best known for her role as Sansa Stark, now stars in Louis Vuitton's new campaign for its Tambour Horizon connected watches.

In the short film, she is seen walking in the dessert and reflecting on her travels, as much a journey around the world as it is of one's inner self. She's joined in the campaign by Justin Theroux, Urassaya Superbund and Liu Haoran, four talents from four different universes.

The theme is fearless journeys: a life lived to the fullest, every moment savoured. Encounters with others, along with self-discovery.

A sentiment which Sophie shares, as she reveals in a behind-the-scenes video: 'It’s highly important to me to see different parts of the world. I think everybody should experience it from a young age to experience other people’s cultures, and I think it’s important for everyone to become a well-rounded person'.

As for the watch, it builds on its predecessor. Louis Vuitton now brings a new design, new materials as polished white ceramic, new applications, interchangeable straps, dial variations. Connected to its wearer’s daily life, the new Tambour Horizon channels Louis Vuitton’s spirit of travel and creativity.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
