Olivia Cooke’s Best Red Carpet Moments Are Fit For The Queen Of The Seven Kingdoms

After a decade in the industry, Olivia Cooke has finally ascended to the title of queen – no, not of Hollywood, but of the Seven Kingdoms. The British actress has officially joined the game of thrones universe as Alicent Hightower, wife of King Viserys I Targaryen, in the new prequel series House of the Dragon. But Cooke fans know the actress has been around for a while, starring in projects like Steven Spielberg’s 2018 film Loan player one and the Psycho-inspired Bates Motel. And all the while, Cooke has maintained a consistent red carpet presence, starting with mini dresses galore before moving on to the slightly longer hemline of a midi and, finally, dresses. Along the way, she found styles that suited her, mostly dresses with romantic details like ruffles and lace, and what seems to be her favorite color to this day: red.

Now that Cooke has a highly anticipated HBO show under her belt, we’re sure to see plenty more of her, so it’s time to get acquainted with the actress if you haven’t already. Below, check out Cooke’s best red carpet looks of the past ten years as we patiently wait for his next one.
