Watching Me Before You, the weepy romance starring Sam Claflin as a quadriplegic heir and Emilia Clarke as his chipper caregiver, can be an unnerving experience, if (a) you don’t think disabled people have nothing to live for or (b) you’re a Game of Thrones fan who doesn’t like having your favorite characters sullied by terrible clothing choices.

While seeing residents of Westeros in plainclothes is always a little surprising, there’s a special horror that comes from seeing Daenerys, Mother of Dragons and Wearer of Impeccable Going-Out Tops, demonstrating such horrifying pattern-clashing and lack of color coordination. This isn’t shade, by the way : Clarke’s character, Louisa, is meant to have an atrocious fashion sense; it is a sign of her quirkiness. (The book provides a darker rationale for her clothing choices, though this is omitted from the film—leaving behind only heinous sweaters).

We apologize in advance for what you’re about to see.
