My first style icon post is for the delightful Karen Gillan. Karen is 24 and is best known for playing Amy Pond on Doctor Who.
I think the word unique is tossed around a lot these days, especially when referring to celebrity style. But Karen truly does have unique dress sense. She manages to reflect her personality but still always look polished and stylish.
What I love about her is that she creates an outfit, instead of just throwing on good clothes, which lets face it anyone with a stylist can do. Her looks nearly always include fantastic bags, well thought out hair and make up and you know what I’ve never seen her without a brilliant pair of shoes always finishing off the outfit. A perfect example being the luminous green sandals worn with the popular white Acne dress.
She always looks vintage and stylish but puts twists on outfits that just makes it a Gillan!
One of my all time favorite looks of hers has to be, the leopard print dress worn to a signing in Glasgow. The dress is clearly lovely but Gillan takes it to the next level by adding the gorgeous little red bag, a statement ring and curling those luscious red locks. The best accessory of all though, that smile! Pure perfection.
Although Amy Pond is no more. I pray that we will keep seeing Karen Gillan and her killer fashion sense.
