Is it just me or does Sansa/Alayne’s hair from the new trailer look just like Catelyn’s hair style?
Here’s a crappy screenshot I took from the new trailer (if anyone has a better one I’d love to have it!).
Here’s a picture of Catelyn’s hair via this website. The bottom three pictures are of someone’s interpretation of the hair style so they look a little different but the actual screen caps look so similar! Both Sansa and Catelyn have a thin, upper rope braid that comes together in to one that eventually turns in to a thick, classic 3-strand braid.
Now I want to know if Sansa decided this hair style for herself as a way to stay connected to her family, if she chose it because she’s trying to emulate her mother (much like how she tried to match Cersei’s style when she first came to court then shifted more towards Margaery’s style when Margaery came to King’s Landing), if she chose this style for herself as a way of sucking up to/manipulating Petyr,
or if Petyr chose the style for Sansa as a grooming technique and a way to turn her in to a younger, prettier Catelyn.
Once again, as much as D&D decide to screw everything up by throwing source material and characterization to the wind, the costume department continues to go above and beyond in their thoughtfulness by portraying the characters through clothing and hair.
