A redhead with a love of Vuitton is always an appealing proposition, but Sophie Turner is more than just another starlet. The Game of Thrones actress has been spreading her wings on-screen and off as of late, with the return of the series (and of her portrayal of Sansa Stark) on the horizon and a buzzy new role as Jean Grey in the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse putting her at the center of one of the world’s biggest comic book franchises. But it hasn’t been all work and no play: Whether she’s sitting front row next to Karlie Kloss at Louis Vuitton or wearing a sustainably crafted dress by Opening Ceremony to the Oscars, the 20-year-old Turner has a sartorial sophistication that belies her age.
Turner balances elegant red carpet appearances with moments of spirited kookiness, pulling off a whimsical Miu Miu bird print or a Versace jumpsuit with ease, and tackling “quirky” as effectively as she does elegant. Ever since she showed up to last year’s Met Gala in a glimmering Burberry gown, Turner has turned heads. With a tendency to choose gowns that let her fiery, nearly waist-length hair serve as her best accessory, as she did in a navy and black Carolina Herrera number at the SAG Awards, the actress’ style will soon set her apart just as much as her distinctive tresses.
