Last week was Purim, which according to Wikipedia is the celebration of Mordecai and Esther foiling the plans of Haman, who wanted to kill all the Jews in the Persian Empire. Apparently, one of the ways people celebrate is by wearing costumes, and Madonna decided to celebrate it by dressing up as Daenerys (played by Emilia Clarke) from Game of Thrones. Exactly like Daenerys as it turns out, because according to Us Weekly, the costume she wore was the actual costume from the show …
Material Khaleesi! It turns out that the costume Madonna wore to channel Game of Thrones heroine Daenerys Targaryen for Purim was actually the real deal. Actress Emilia Clarke appeared on The Tonight Show Wednesday, March 19, and confirmed to Jimmy Fallon that it was the same exact costume she wears on the show.
“It’s my real costume,” 26-year-old Clarke said. “I thought I was dreaming. I got an email from amazing HBO publicist Mara, saying, ‘Madonna would like to borrow the costume, is that okay?'”
“I thought, ‘God, this must be a dream. This can’t be real,'” the British actress continued.
Oh, that’s not good. The last thing Madonna needs at this point is dragons.
Dragon: All right, so apparently we’re in your service now. What’s your first command?
Madonna: Make me look younger.
Dragon: Ummmmm … I don’t- I don’t think you understand how dragons work.
Madonna: Young people like dragons, right?
Dragon: I mean yeah, I guess, but-
Madonna: Tell all the young’uns I’m young, just like them! I can dance the Charleston just as good as any of them!
Dragon: Not even gonna touch that one.
Madonna: Fire up the gramophone! We’ll lindy hop like it’s nineteen-dickety-nine!
