“Game of Thrones” beauty Emilia Clarke ruled the red carpet of the 2016 Emmy Awards in a nude strapless Atelier Versace gown.

Clarke’s body-hugging Emmys dress spotlighted her tiny waist as she and her “Game of Thrones” co-stars won the Emmy for Best Drama series for the second consecutive year.

A curvy 5-foot-2, Clarke isn’t your typical tall, model-skinny sex symbol, but has legions of avid fans thanks to her role as Daenerys Targaryen on GOT.

Clarke is most known for her graphic sex scenes in Game of Thrones, which feature lots of full-frontal nudity.

Not surprisingly, Emilia said the graphic sex scenes are draining, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

“Once, I had to take a little time out,” she said. “I said I needed a cup of tea, had a bit of a cry, and was ready for the next scene.”

Emilia Clarke previously played Sarah Connor in the film Terminator: Genisys. To get fit for that film, Clarke followed a sugar-free diet.

Avoiding sugar is the one thing that will make the biggest difference in your health, said obesity expert Diane Sanfilippo, author of The 21-Day Sugar Detox.

Reducing sugar intake accelerates weight loss and prevents aging (especially wrinkles), say fitness experts.

Sugar has no redeeming health benefit, is addictive, and is a leading cause of early death, said Sarah Wilson, author of I Quit Sugar.

Clarke also did grueling gym workouts that included weightlifting, kickboxing, and cardio exercise.

Emilia said she stopped Googling herself after being fat-shamed by Internet trolls after she first appeared nude in “Game of Thrones.”

“I remember when everything first kicked off, I Googled myself,” said Clarke. “But never again. It just takes that one person who says: ‘She’s a fat b*tch,’ and you’re like: “I’m a fat b*tch!”
