Emilia Clarke reveals Madonna borrowed her costume for Purim
The reason the Material Girl looks just like Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, in a viral Instagram photo is because she had some help from the real deal.
Madonna has powerful connections throughout the Seven Kingdoms.
It turns out that the reason the Material Girl’s “Game of Thrones” costume photo that went viral on Instagram looks so realistic is that she’s wearing the same outfit that actress Emilia Clarke dons on the HBO drama.
Minus the giant CGI dragons, of course.
“It’s my real costume, because I thought I was dreaming,” Clarke told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday night.
“I got an email from amazing HBO publicist Mara, saying, ‘Madonna would like to borrow your costume, is that okay?’
“I thought, ‘God, this must be a dream. This can’t be real,'” said Clarke.
