The jacket, which is from Rick Owens' spring/summer 2020 collection, proves that dramatic sleeves are going to be a huge trend this year. Shoulder pads were popular in the '80s and have slowly started making a comeback, with designers at New York Fashion Week showing multiple looks featuring statement-making sleeves.

Christie is no stranger to having fun with her fashion choices. At the 2019 Emmys, she wore a white-and-red dress by Gucci that looked like a robe. "Game of Thrones" fans thought the outfit was a subtle nod to Brienne and Jaime's love story because it was designed with lion details.
