Game of Thrones might have finished for another season, but Westeros addicts can still get their fix with the new Autumn/Winter 2015 style shots from Vivienne Westwood‘s Gold Label. Gwendoline Christie (who plays the badass lady knight Brienne of Tarth) has been personally handpicked by the designer to front the new unisex campaign, snapped by iconic fashion photographer Jeurgen Teller.

Swapping her trademark chain mail for standout pieces like a midnight silk dress, longline furry biker and tinsel tutu skirt, we’re all over Gwendoline’s gothic styling – complete with dramatic kohl eyes and dark lipstick. Fellow Brit and male model Leebo Freeman co-stars, meaning the images create the look of the ‘perfect unisex couple.’

Earlier this year, the British actor/model also hit the catwalk as part of Westwood’s wonderfully androgynous A/W15 show in Paris, rocking a wide-shouldered suit and OTT hat. A designer known for challenging conventional gender stereotype boundaries, Westwood had intended for the same suit to be worn across both genders in the collection – meaning that short-haired, 6″3 Gwendoline was the ideal candidate to model her creations. The designer is clearly a small-screen fan too, having also cast Breaking Bad star RJ Mitte (aka Walt Jr) in the same A/W15 show.
