Twitter was abuzz last night (July 16) as the season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones aired, much to the delight of audiences everywhere. Not only was the episode filled with quotable lines, but there were some pretty solid beauty moments as well. You probably noticed Daenerys Targaryen AKA Khaleesi’s stunning dragon clip that she wore in her hair (after all, the Mother of Dragons is known for sporting some seriously Pinterest-worthy hairstyles), but did you catch the more subtle beauty comparison between Sansa Stark and Cersei Lannister?
As noted by HuffPost, there was a moment in the premiere where Sansa is speaking with Jon Snow about the threat that Cersei poses. When Jon suggests that Sansa might admire her, the eldest Stark daughter replies by saying that she’s “learned a great deal” from Cersei. Interestingly enough, during that very scene, Sansa is actually wearing her hair a lot like Cersei did in earlier seasons: pulled back away from her face with two little braids.
Naturally, Twitter was quick to point this out as well (don’t ever underestimate the eagle-eyed fans of Game of Thrones).
Considering that fan theories run rampant among GoT viewers, we wouldn’t be surprised if some audience members take this as a major clue of darker things to come. Of course, it could just be a common hairstyle in Westeros — one that’s pretty easy to replicate — so maybe we shouldn’t read too much into this just yet. Guess we’ll just have to keep watching to find out for sure!
