Accompanying gladiator-inspired dresses and sandals were “Game of Thrones”-reminiscent romantic braids, crowns, and delicate gold wreaths embellished with gold stars and seals, all styled by Guido Palau.
Kristen Wiig Is Khaleesi, Takes Her Late Night Appearances Really Seriously Kristen Wiig was supposed to appear on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night to promote her new movie Welcome to Me, but Daenerys Targaryen showed up instead.
