House of the Dragon introduced us to many amazing new actors, and Emily Carey emerged as one of its biggest stars. In addition to impressing us with her portrayal of the young Alicent Hightower, Carey has proven herself as a style star to watch after delivering several impressive press tour looks.

Carey kicked off the press tour at Comic-Con to win a royal blue ensemble consisting of a sheer crochet top and wide-leg pants, and things just got better from there. Her style is peak Gen-Z, and she’s not scared of taking risks despite being a newcomer in Hollywood.

She attended the LA premiere in a Givenchy two-piece with thigh-high leather boots that proved to be pretty polarizing but opted for a classier approach in London where she hit the red carpet in a red Fendi couture dress.

We’re looking forward to more of her fashion experiments in the future, and she owes her status of a rising style star to her stylist Zadrian Smith, who helped her prepare for her very first major press tour.

“The looks that he prepared for me on this tour blew my mind, they were everything that I’d asked for and more… I don’t like anything too hyperfeminine; I like things with an edge to them. And I think we pulled that off with every single look,” Carey told WWD.
