Last night Karen Gillan (who plays Doctor Who‘s flame-haired sidekick Amy) attended the private screening of the long-awaited new Doctor Who series, wearing what we suspect is a French Connection pleated maxi dress – it’s strikingly similar to the one Petra Nemcova wore on the runway at The LOOK Show SS11. The TV star looked effortlesly cool by teaming her simple nude maxi dress with a messy hairstyle, chunky black boots and smoky eye make-up – Ms Gillan, we approve!
Expect to see a lot of Karen Gillan in the next few months – not only will she be gracing our screens in Doctor Who, but she is also set to star as ’60s model and fashion icon Jean Shrimpton in the new David Bailey film We’ll Take Manhattan, which focuses on the 1962 Vogue fashion shoot where she met and fell in love with Bailey. Excited? We are! So Karen will soon be swapping checked shirts and floor-sweeping maxi dresses for micro-miniskirts, which Shrimpton is credited for bringing to the masses.
Start up the time machine, as Karen Gillan is heading back to the ’60s!
