Are you a complete TV junkie like I am? Thanks my DVR my life doesn’t have to revolve around my TV schedule or else I’d be tied to the couch almost every night of the week. My name is Cait Marie, and I’m addicted to TV.
Did I mention that half the reason I’m obsessed with certain shows is because of the fashion? Some of my favorite television stars have stellar style both on and off screen, and today I’m taking a look at two of them in a double dose of TV fashion: Ilana Glazer of Broad City and Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones.
aka Ilana Wexler of Broad City on Comedy Central
Last week rapped up the first season of Broad City. If you didn’t catch this show, you seriously missed out! Imagine a cable version of HBO’s Girls crossed with Workaholics, another Comedy Central original that is arguably Broad City’s male counterpart. The show follows two young ladies, Ilana Wexler and Abbi Abrams, and their lives in New York City. The series was developed from the web series by real life friends Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, who also star in the show. It’s also worth mentioning that the ever talented, stylish, and hilarious Amy Pohler is one of the executive producers of Broad City.
Ilana’s style on the show has drawn a lot of attention and created a significant buzz. It’s bold, unique, unapologetic, and somewhat inappropriate to say the least. Basically, it completely mirrors Ilana’s character. Kudos to costume designer Staci Greenbaum for hitting the nail on the head with Ilana’s wardrobe. Throughout the show, Ilana can be spotted in brands like American Apparel, H&M, and Doc Martens along with other pieces that seem to resemble flea market finds. Her wardrobe really reflects one that would be had by a typical broke twenty-something living in NYC. My favorite look from the season was her ensemble in the finale (pictured above), and I’ll show you how to attain the look!

aka Daenerys Targaryen aka Mother of Dragons of HBO’s Game of Thrones
The fourth season of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones premieres this Sunday, April 6. I’m typically not the biggest fan of the fantasy genre, but I became instantly hooked after my boyfriend forced me to watch the first season of this show. Emilia Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen, is one of the primary reasons, as she is one of my favorites on the show. If you’re familiar with GOT, you know that the costuming on the show is incredibly elaborate and period specific. While I love Clarke’s wardrobe on the show as much as Madonna, who happened to borrow one of Daenerys’ iconic ensembles, the looks are not quite suitable for anything but a costume party.
So, for this star, I’m much more interested in her look off camera. Clarke recently landed the cover of InStyle UK, which features a spread of the actress modeling some unique and exciting spring designs from brands such as Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, and Giles. Despite rocking some seriously haute couture labels for InStyle, Clarke’s personal style seems to be much more down to earth and attainable. She’s rumored to be a fan of the British retailer Topshop, which comes as no surprise since she herself is a London native. My favorite look from her InStyle UK spread is the one pictured above, and I decided to recreate the look with pieces from the actress’s beloved store, Topshop.
