The movie adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ best-selling novel, ‘Me Before You’ has kickstarted its world premiere in New York. The event was graced by Emilia Clarke, who shed off her Khaleesi image for a moment to take on the role of Louisa Clark. In the adaptation, Louisa is a small-town girl who eventually becomes the caregiver of Will Traynor, a disabled man intent on suicide. The role of Will is played by Mockingjay actor Sam Claflin.
This is Emilia’s first starring role in a romantic-drama film and by the looks of the trailer, they couldn’t have picked a better actress.
We expected a lot from the famous ‘Game of Thrones’ actress and she didn’t disappoint with the ruffled frock she wore to the event.

The 29-year-old chose a sweet and feminine Chloe old rose ruffled hem gown. Surprisingly, the frilly frock didn’t look too sweet or overwhelming on Emilia’s petite stature. We also love how she opted for simple metallic sandals to go with the dress.
