Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington Frolic in the Streets of Italy for Dolce & Gabbana’s New Campaign
If you watch Game of Thrones, or if you don’t watch but do exist on the Internet, you probably have some sort of feelings about the Jon Snow–Daenerys Targaryen relationship. For the latter crowd, a quick catch-up: Kit Harington’s Snow and Emilia Clarke’s Targaryen had some major sexual tension all season, and just as they got together, viewers found out the two were aunt and nephew. Yep. Cue the most mixed emotions an incest plotline has ever created, and to top it off, we’ve now got an entire year to stew in it before the show returns next summer. That’s the bad news. The good? The duo were cast to front Dolce & Gabbana’s newest fragrance campaign back in March, and a slew of videos just landed to stir our thirst.
The design house has graced us with four promo videos for The One Eau de Parfum and The One for Men (both $67), both of which were shot in Italy. Clarke’s video begins with her walking the streets of Naples. Someone gives her a bouquet of flowers, there’s dancing, she eats a huge bowl of pasta. It feels a little bit like an idealized dream vacation. But, nope! Filmmaker Matteo Garrone shot the videos with city locals, so this is real-deal, genuine cultural warmth.
Beautiful, all very well and good, but with the memory of Jon Snow’s butt still fresh, the Harington video is where it’s at. Following the same concept, Harington walks through the city smiling more than he has ever and probably will ever on Game of Thrones. (No brooding here.) He waves at an incredibly lucky person. He double-kisses an older woman like he’s known her for many years. He does that sexy dance-clapping thing; he is surrounded by a crowd of loving, happy-looking people, with pizza.
Sorry, but where was our invite to this pizza party in the streets of Italy? Where we can find out what Jon Snow smells like? Lost in the mail, we can only assume.
Dolce & Gabbana also released two behind-the-scenes videos from the making of the campaign. Major takeaways: The people of Naples are fantastic, and yeah, we’re incredibly jealous.
These are both directors cuts, so in all likelihood, a campaign of Clarke and Harington together is probably on the way. (Otherwise, come on, missed opportunity of a lifetime.) The One for Men has been around since 2008, but Eau de Parfum is brand new, a combination of madonna lily, bergamot, and white peach that’s rolling out in stores as we write.
The brand describes it as a “sensual scent,” so fingers crossed we won’t have to wait until 2019 to see sparks fly between Clarke and Harington. We’ll take whatever we can get.
