We recently profiled the tallest actors in show business, so naturally we wanted to also honor the women who stand out - for both their height and acting ability.

Fashion Fails: Ruth Wilson, Jessie J, Maggie Gyllenhaal, More

Ruth Wilson
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Ruth Wilson's outfit looks similar, doesn't it? That's because Maggie Gyllenhaal wore it last June with a matching skirt - and it was a fail then, too! The bulging waist section looks worse with the tight black dress Wilson has paired it with.

Speaking of Maggie Gyllenhaal, she wore this Goth-y dress adorned with an assortment of jewels that put it over-the-top. Are those little pouches near her shoulders?

Slideshow: The Beautiful Women Of 'Game Of Thrones'

The third season of Game of Thrones is less than a week away (we've seen the first four episodes already and they are awesome!) and what better way to celebrate than with a slideshow of the beautiful women of Westeros (and Essos)?

The show's two most powerful women, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, played by Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, respectively, are both blondes, but in reality sport dark 'dos. They may be hot on TV, but we think they're even sexier off screen. In fact, they all clean up well.

Our favorites? Oona Chaplin, who plays Robb Stark's (Richard Madden) wife Talisa ...

Gwendoline Christie
The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn't relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: "It's really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman."

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous se...

While fans are salivating for the third season of "Game of Thrones" to begin later this month, several members of the cast attended the premiere in Hollywood on Monday night.

Emilia Clarke wowed in an electric blue strapless dress, making quite a departure from her blonde haired character Daenerys Targaryen. The actress recently told GQ magazine how she often goes unrecognized in public.

"It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me," she explained. "These HBO events, where I'll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they're like, Oh sh*t! That's what you do! Th...
