Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams turned heads on the red carpet for the final Game Of Thrones season premiere.

Stars of HBO’s worldwide smash hit gathered at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Wednesday as they prepared to say farewell to the fantasy epic.

Clarke, who has played Daenerys Targaryen since the show’s inception in 2011, wore a blue and grey ensemble for the occasion.

Her hair, usually platinum blonde when in character, was tied back and dark, matching her lipstick.

Turner, 23, and Williams, 21, play sisters Sansa and Arya Stark. They posed for pictures together, with Williams wearing a floor-length black gown with silver details.

Turner had a knee-length black dress on complete with matching heels.
