Emilia Clarke Looks Royal in Purple at ‘Last Christmas’ Premiere

Emilia Clarke dazzled the crowd (literally) during her latest public appearance.

Last night, the Game of Thrones star, 33, attended the New York City premiere of her all-new holiday rom-com, Last Christmas. Clarke wore a floor-length purple gown by Valentino, and we’re totally digging the monochromatic color scheme.

The sequined number featured spaghetti straps and an A-line silhouette. Clarke paired the dress with matching purple earrings and heels (natch).

The actress documented the momentous occasion on her personal Instagram account and shared a slideshow of photos, featuring her “red carpet cuddle attack.”

She wrote, “@lastchristmasthemovie not only did you give me an excuse to dress like a Christmas bauble (thank you @maisonvalentino) but you gave me a red carpet cuddle attack with the fiercest most fabulous women in the bizz… (Dame Emma Thompson aka my spirit mamma and @michelleyeoh_official aka my elf task master in couture) but then you give me a winter wonderland sofa to lounge on like the true diva I am? YAS!!!!”

Last Christmas tells the story of a young woman named Kate (Clarke), who works as an elf in a British holiday store. In addition to Clarke, the movie also stars Emma Thompson, Henry Golding and Michelle Yeoh. It will hit theaters on November 8.

Never change, Clarke. Never change.
