Whether she’s playing House of Stark noblewoman Sansa Stark or
Dark Phoenix Jean Grey, one thing to know about Sophie Turner is she is a powerful, badass woman, on and off screen. Throughout the course of her career, fans have watched her rise to the throne, control fire, and slay enemies in combat; IRL, she slays the red carpet, nails effortlessly cool street style, and sets major trends (still living for those blunt bangs). Looking back at Turner’s style evolution, it’s clear she has always ate and she’s showing no signs of stopping.
The UK-born star made her acting debut on
Game of Thrones in 2011 when she was 14 years old, and has been serving looks ever since. At the start of her career, she kept her red carpet looks cute and classic, but as her star power grew, so did her glam. By the 2019 Met Gala, she showed how much she was willing to experiment with colors, textures, and silhouettes in a colorful sequin catsuit by Louis Vuitton. As an ambassador for the brand, Turner’s sported quite a few high-fashion LV looks in recent years. For her personal style, though, she keeps it pretty relaxed and casual. Definitely a juxtaposition, yet both work in her favor.

One of Sophie Turner’s earliest red carpet moments was at the February 2012 launch of the first season of
Game of Thrones on DVD at the Old Vic Tunnels in London. She wore a black sparkly mini dress with mesh sleeves and added a pop of red with her clutch and heels.

At the 2013 premiere of her film
Another Me, Turner went ultra-classic with a light blue floral printed midi dress with an understated fit and flare fit. She accessorized with a silver sparkly clutch and heels. Her side braid served Katniss Everdeen realness, which makes sense since the second film in the Hunger Games franchise came out that year. July 2014: Sophie Turner’s Funky Jumpsuit Albert L.

Straying from her previous simple looks, the
GoT star wore a funky black and rainbow-colored alphabet-patterned jumpsuit with black heels to San Diego Comic-Con in 2014. The ‘fit very much foreshadowed her Louis Vuitton Met Gala 2019 look. February 2016: Sophie Turner’s Hollywood Glam C Flanigan/FilmMagic/Getty Images
Paired with her signature side part and voluminous waves, Turner’s 2016 Academy Awards look is the epitome of G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S. She wore a satin sage green gown from the collab between British fashion brand Galvan and Opening Ceremony. The dress was paired with silver heels, a diamond necklace, and diamond drop earrings.

X-Men: Apocalypse. The outfit almost looked like a suit of armor — very fitting for her character in the film as she embodied Jean Grey gearing up to fight the X-Men’s newest foe. May 2017: Sophie Turner Turns Angelic Karwai Tang/WireImage/Getty Images
X-Men: Apocalypse star wore an angelic white and neutral-colored lace and sequin dress by Louis Vuitton to the 2017 Met Gala.
