Last night we watched the season two finale of Game of Thrones in all its mind-f*cking glory. (Daenerys got her dragons back, FTW!)

Anyway,we haven’t mentioned this much before but…here at Fashionista we’re obsessed with G of T. The compelling plot, ass-kicking women characters (say what you want about Cersei, but she is no wallflower) and the absolutely stunning styling in the series have all kept us hooked.

So we got on the phone to chat with Kevin Alexander, the show’s hair designer, and Michele Clapton, the costume designer, both of whom were nominated for Emmys for their work on the show. Needless to say, we had tons of questions for them. From Daenarys’ (aka Khaleesi, aka the Mother of Dragons) killer platinum braids to that crazy breastplate Cersei wore while drinking herself into a stupor during the siege of King’s Landing, we got all the behind-the-scenes secrets. Want to know how they make the characters so disgustingly dirty? We found out. Wondering how many wigs are used and what they cost? (Hint: A lot and a lot.) There’s even an awesome Bjork/Alexander McQueen connection.

So read on for all the scoop. Winter is coming, people.
