There are approximately one million things we love about the Queen of the Andals and First Men, mother of Dragons, Khaleesi (etc., etc.), Daenerys Targaryen. But one of our all-time favorites? Her gorgeous, icy platinum, perfectly braided, white-blonde locks.

So when Emilia Clarke (aka Queen Dany) posted a photo of her new hair on Instagram this morning, we practically fainted. Guys, she IS her GoT character. Daenerys is real. Winter is coming. We. Can't. Breathe.

Not only did Clarke sub out her chocolately brown 'do for a nice blonde crop, she also posted this caption: "I done did it. Mother of dragons meet Emilia. Emilia meet mother of dragons. If you squint just so you might never know," confirming our beliefs that she truly is Queen of the Seven Kingdoms and Wearer of All the Hair Colors.

15 long bobs we love

1/15
  • Taylor Swift

    We never thought T. Swift would part with her signature mermaid waves, but after several years in the spotlight, she finally went for the chop in a big way. Taylor's versatile cut is sophisticated and versatile, and it lends itself particularly well to this type of classic styling.

  • Emma Roberts

    We have serious bob envy in the case of Emma's sleek, shiny cut. Long layers and face-framing curls are flattering and unexpected on this abbreviated length.

  • Emma Watson

    Emma has succeeded in growing out her gamine post-"Potter" pixie in style. A smooth center part, large barrel waves, and a touch of height at the crown alludes to slightly retro glamour that still seems contemporary.

  • Katy Perry

    Katy's blunt bob, complete with eyebrow-grazing bangs, is as classic as they come.

  • Kristen Wiig

    Kristen shocked fans when she lopped off her long locks in favor of a sleek to-the-chin bob earlier this year.

  • Alexa Chung

    Alexa Chung has truly perfected the long bob. With ombre highlights and a length that goes just beyond her shoulders, this style will look good on anyone—even as it grows out.

  • January Jones

    The Mad Men actress never wears her long bob the same way twice. To get these waves, use a curling iron to curl hair away from the face.

  • Kate Mara

    Kate's long bob looks great pin-straight because it's all one length. 

  • Katharine McPhee

    Dress up your lob like Katharine's with thick, loose waves and a deep side part. 

  • Kerry Washington

    Kerry wears her lob straight and curly, but we especially love the messy texture on this shoulder-skimming look. To replicate the style, curl pieces of hair at random with a curling iron, and then use a flat iron to go over the ends.

  • Lily Collins

    Lily has similar texture to Kerry's style, but without the bangs. For a boost in volume, copy her deep side part.

  • Maron Cotillard

    Marion Cotillard wore a more angular lob to the Golden Globes awards earlier this year, pairing the look with side-swept bangs. To keep hair smooth all night, try rubbing a dime-size amount of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution ($9.99, drugstore.com) into hands and then distributing through hair, starting at the ends.

  • Nicole Kidman

    Nicole Kidman looks seriously elegant in this classic haircut, that extends just past her shoulders. We hope this means she's said goodbye to long extensions for good!

  • Nicole Richie

    Nicole recently went back to a lob and blunt bangs, which accentuate her eyes. We love this length, which hovers just above her shoulders.

  • Rose Byrne

    Rose caught a lot of attention after cutting a short bob and blunt bangs, and her hair keeps getting better as she grows it out.

    Watch me edit a 30 minute style into 1 minute. 😩Game of Thrones fans, here it is! Mother of dragon braid tutorial on my @chelsiegambo 👑⚔️🥀 This one took so long to edit and is extremely short, so here's a quick break down. 1. Use Blow Dry prep by @kenraprofessional 2. Section hair as shown. 3. First braid is a Dutch braid, second is a lace braid, and third is a regular 3 strand. 4. Do the same thing on the opposite side. 5. Add extensions (@societyextensions) 6. Spray @kenraprofessional Shaping spray and curl hair horizontally with a one inch iron. 7. Pin into place as shown but you want to connect the braids underneath with hair elastics tfor stay into place.. 8. Curl front pieces. Wowza that's a lot of steps for the queen. 👑⚔️🤷‍♀️ Hope you liked it, would you like more? #kenraprofessional #braidsofthrones #gothair #gameofthroneshair #gameofthrones

    So excited to share the third collaboration in my Flower Crown Braid series! ♥️🌹Today I am twinning with the amazing @moonlightbraids 😍 go check out her version! All of her braids are also super impressive. We chose to do a classic three stand crown braid and used brightly coloured carnations as our flower. I'm also starting to feel the fall vibes so I went for that deep purple lip.

    Whoops! I completely forgot to post a braid. Here's one that I made up based on a person from an episode of Game of Thrones I saw. . . Please excuse the mess in the background and the stray hairs sticking out here and there lol.
