Maisie Williams totally won the Internet today by wearing a comic-book dress to Comic-Con 2014. What else would a headstrong and adventurous 17-year-old wear to Comic-Con, right? While we have been enjoying the convention’s fun, hip, and sometimes geeky fashion, Maisie easily shoots to the top of our best-dressed list simply by going for the most appropriate (and obvious) thing to wear.
Her eco-friendly dress, crafted by avant-garde designer Ryan Jude Novelline, is made out of recycled comic books and graphic novels. As an extra personal touch to the custom look made just for Arya Stark Maisie, Novelline added a leather belt covered with pages from a used copy of Game of Thrones. You can see how the dress was made here.

The young actress actually first wore the dress as a judge in Bookbarn International’s Out of Print fashion show back in May. So, we can say that she recycled this recycled dress:
While we don’t have issues with Maisie’s black velvet pumps, we do think that a comic-print dress calls for comic-print shoes. Overkill, maybe, but when else can you wear comic print from head to toe than when you’re a teenager at Comic-Con? If Maisie wanted to maintain the dressy look of her recycled outfit, she could’ve done it with these Archie-print pumps from Charlotte Olympia’s Resort 2014 comic collection:
If she wanted to go edgy, these magazine-print ankle-cuff platform sandals fit the bill:

Now, if she wanted to go punk like her badass Game of Thrones character, Maisie could’ve worn these comic-print Doc Martens with her Vivienne Westwood/Alexander McQueen–inspired dress:
Finally, Maisie could have gone the dress-with-sneakers route with these platform trainers from Jeffrey Campbell:
