We miss Game Of Thrones. Sure, House Of The Dragon is OK (we guess) but in no way does it make up for our regular fix of the Starks, Lannisters, Jon Snow and, of course, the legend that was Daenerys Targaryen.

Strong, feisty and with the most shocking of white blonde tresses, Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons was almost everyone’s favorite female character, until, well, ‘that’ episode.

But we really have to stop lamenting about the past because GoT is officially no more. It’s done. Over. Finito.

So instead of debating about whether Dany really deserved to die (sorry, we’ll stop now!) we’ll concentrate our beady eyes on the real actor behind the character, Emilia Clarke.

And more specifically her recent hair do-over!

Emilia was spotted at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone, England at the weekend and, dressed in an olive, knee-length, belted romper and black bomber jacket, the 37-year-old actress looked absolutely thrilled to be hanging out in the Ferrari paddock.

“SILVERSTONE. In another life I was a F1 driver. Yesterday I got to hang out with real ones and pretty pretty cars, And I did not play it cool. #bestdayofmylife? #turnsoutredreallyismycolour #bristdonegoodbaby! #girljustlovesanengine,” she posted, alongside a gallery of incredible pictures in which she looked absolutely thrilled with life.

And so she should. Not only did she look stunning thanks to her stylist, Harry Lambert and makeup artist, Naoko Scintu (that red lip!) but her hair was totally on point as she hung out with Ferrari drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz (below).

But it was her hair that really grabbed our attention – that’s what we’re all about, after all! 

Since departing GoT in 2019 and saying farewell to her platinum blonde locks, Emilia has rarely been seen with anything but brunette, natural-looking hair. In fact, in an interview with just last year she swore she would never bleach her hair again!

“My advice to anyone who wants to bleach their hair is don’t do it! It ruins your hair, so just stop bleaching it,” Emilia explained.

“My hair felt like straw and was falling out. If you want to have blonde hair, just get a wig or pimp up your hair with some highlights,” she added. 

It was no surprise, therefore, that Emilia did NOT return to Dany’s trademark pure white locks for her F1 debut (never again!). But we love to see that she’s not afraid to switch up her color with some gorgeous, golden blonde highlights instead.

Emilia’s new do was all down to celebrity hairstylist, Earl Simms and top London colorist, Nicola Clarke

Nicola is pretty much the queen of hair color and has taken charge of every A-lister’s coloring needs, from Kate Moss and Madonna to Brad Pitt and Jake Gyllenhall.

She hand-painted some beautiful honey tones through Emilia’s mid-length hair which was styled with a center part and blow-dried straight and bouncy, along with some movement through the ends.

So natural-looking. And SO freakin’ gorgeous!

This new hue is the perfect summer switch up and it could not suit Emilia’s skin tone more perfectly.

Some are dubbing her look a bit of a ‘Rachel’ do as both the cut and color are very reminiscent of Jennifer Aniston in her infamous Friends era, but we reckon it is true Emilia and we look forward to seeing her rock this new look in all its glory.
