Karen Gillan Named 2012's Scottish Fashion Icon, Apparently Before They Saw This Photo

I don't know anything about fashion, but I know about "Doctor Who," so this is important: Model-turned-actress Karen Gillan has won the Scottish Fashion Icon Award, the same year she took on the role of supermodel Jean Shrimpton in the BBC drama, "We'll Take Manhattan." Apparently, demerits were not given for the particularly hairstyle sported above.

Also of note, Talia Lennox won Model of the Year. She's Annie Lennox's daughter.


Karen Gillan will return to "Doctor Who" for one last hurrah before she's written out to make way for a newer model, Jenna Louise Coleman, during this year's Christmas episode.

    The Flesh

    That was my first thought too. This is clearly a doughy faced partially formed impostor made from The Flesh. I mean, there is just no way.

  • LwoodPDowd

    I just got back from Scotland. That is still award winning fashion.

  • Guest

    Certainly in Stirling, it is.

  • AS

    Jiffeylube - I thought the same thing!

  • Jiffeylube

    Anyone else think she looks exactly like Erin from The Office?

  • John W

    Wow, totally didn't recognize her in the top photo. It's a combination of the bangs (which are cute, but really change her face), the makeup, and the...dress. thing.

  • lowercase_ryan

    she wears that and you zero in on the hair?

  • Bert_McGurt

    I think she picked that up at a Seinfeld yard sale. I'm sure that's one of Kramer's shirts.

  • Anthony Hoffman

    Her hair looks great.

  • annie

    Not one of Karen's best days. Is Annie Lennox's daughter actually a scientific experiment to combine the genetics of Cate Blanchett, Evangeline Lilly and Penelope Cruz? Or am I the only one who sees this (again)?

  • Fabius_Maximus

    All I'm seeing is Denis Leary.

  • Strand

    I'm seeing Jessica Biel in there too.

  • TheOtherGreg

    I see it!

  • John W

    Love the bangs.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    I hate bangs.
