In the five years since Game of Thrones premiered, several of the show's younger stars have seemingly grown up before our eyes—and Sophie Turner's latest red carpet look is proof.

On Sunday, the actress attended the 73rd Venice Film Festival wearing an absolutely gorgeous Yanina Couture black gown with a plunging neckline and open back. Combined with minimal jewelry and a pair of sky-high patent stilettos, the look was old Hollywood glamour at its finest. Her newly platinum locks only added to the look, and Sophie looked flawless from every angle.

The actress kept her makeup simple but fabulous, opting for bronze shadows and a peachy blush that you'll definitely want to copy for your next big event.

Of course, Sophie wasn't just at the Venice Film Festival to watch movies: Before the premiere of Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge, the actress accepted the Kineo Diamanti Award to celebrate her work on both Game of Thrones and X-Men: Apocalypse.

"Every year for the International Prize, we try to find a character that has attracted much attention in the international and the Italian audience," the award's general manager, Tiziana Rocca, told Just Jared (opens in new tab). "I immediately tried to internationalize the award because I think it is important that an award like this should and can be echoed over our country. We are very happy that Sophie Turner has agreed to be in Venice because she embodies talent and professionalism and will be the best combination for success."
