Dressing Like a Modern Day: Joffrey Baratheon

Screen shot 2014-04-10 at 7.34.30 PM Alright. Let’s just get it over with: Joffrey Baratheon, brilliantly played by super-nice guy Jack Gleeson, is a dick. He’s a psychopath and a big ass baby, but I can’t deny the king of the Westeros is dressed to kill (pun intended). His signature color is a much darker version of his maternal side’s–the Lannister red.  Joffrey’s thick blood color palette makes him even more sinister and dreadful. Below you’ll find some evidence of the Joffrey red on the most recent runway shows. All costume designs in Game of Thrones are by Michele Clapton.

Raf Simons dress shirt in the Joffrey color. You think modern-day (real) Joffrey would wear this with shorts too? Maybe if he were going to a country club or polo match…

Okay, I know the outfit is a little on the crazy side, but the point is his polo and socks. A lot of guys would look great in that color! It’s Prada.

If Joffrey were real and a douche today, he might be able to pull off a silk bathrobe as a proper day outfit, like this one from Dries Van Noten's Fall 2014 collection.
