The eighth and final season of the HBO's Game of Thrones is finally here. Love it or hate it, you know that Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) is integral to the plotline and that she's got major stakes in the final season. The lady of Winterfell Sophie Turner will reunite with Jon Snow, Bran, and Arya Stark to save the living from the white walkers and protect the iron throne.
We watched Sophie grow up onscreen; Game of Thrones launched much of the young cast - namely Maisie Williams, Emilia Clarke, and Kit Harington - to superstardom. Sansa has endured quite the journey since the early days of season one in Winterfell - then King's Landing - and back to the North. But it's safe to say she's won our hearts - no dragons, dire wolf, bratty teenage kings, or White Walkers necessary.
One can’t help but look at Sophie Turner’s red carpet beauty evolution — cascading waves and intricately braided updos - and think she must have taken a little inspiration from Sansa Stark. Most recently she's been rocking fierce platinum blonde – a nod to her natural hue. An A-list engagement later and a little help from MUA extraordinaire Huang Vangoo and Sophie has become a bonafide beauty star. Here we revisit the 23-year-old best beauty looks and discover Sophie’s beauty evolution from one of her first GOT red carpets in 2012 to now.
2012: For her first red carpet, the English-born actress opted for a subtle winged eyeliner to frame her blue peepers. The rest of her make-up is kept so natural that we're wondering just how does she have such perfect skin? Ah, to be 14 again.
2013: A simple age-appropriate look that allows Sophie's Natural beauty to shine through. Her gorgeous auburn hair is swept to the side highlighting her enviable cheekbones.
2013: A few loose-barrels curls are used to give Turner's waist-length locks some volume. Her penchant for rosy pink blush is starting to become apparent here - perhaps it's all that time in Winterfell but she's serving cold weather beauty at it's finest.
2013: Sophie's side-swept fishtail braid is worthy of holding court in King's Landing. A future queen in the making.
2014: Nailing the classic combination of a smokey eye and matte nude lip liner.
2016: Debuting her blonde locks at the Golden Globes, this marks a new era - not to mention a new look - for Sophie.
2017: Slicked back hair for a modern beauty look at the Met Gala. Extra style points for her edgy earrings which take this simple look to new heights.
2018: Turner's preferred make-up artist Huang Vangoo shared this candid shot with the caption: "That California sunset! ☀️" We're swooning over that sunkissed skin.
2019: A neutral brown lip and warm-toned eyeshadow created for a press day and shared by Hung Vanngo on Instagram.
2019: To mark her first major beauty gig with Wella Haircare, Sophie gave her platinum blonde tresses a fresh update. Notably, her "midi-bob" is styled with relaxed curls for a softening effect.
2019: For the final Game Of Thrones red carpet the Lady Of Winterfell contrasted her soft Hollywood waves with a dramatic highly pigmented statement eye.
