Madonna Channels 'Game Of Thrones' Character Daenerys Targaryen For Jewish Holiday

The editors here at HuffPost Style are HUGE "Game of Thrones" fans. We are constantly swooning over Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen and shouting across the newsroom, "Winter is coming!" But it looks like Madonna may have one-up us on our "Game of Thrones" fandom.

The 55-year-old entertainer dressed up as the Mother of Dragons to celebrate the Jewish holiday Purim. She posted a picture on Instagram Saturday with the caption, "Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty."

Wearing a platinum-blonde wavy wig, brown buckled corset and brass bangles, Madonna bears an uncanny resemblance to the fictional character from the HBO series. But what really made her costume were the two miniature fake dragons perched on her shoulders.

Purim is a spring holiday that "commemorates the Jewish community's narrow escape from collective destruction in the ancient Persian Empire." While Madonna was raised as a Roman Catholic, she converted to the Jewish belief system Kabbalah in the late '90s and took the Hebrew name Esther, the orphaned Jewish girl who saves her people and becomes the Queen of Persia.

With all of that being said, it seems as though Madonna chose the perfect costume to celebrate Purim. What do you think?
