Karen Gillan on Conan

Posted on October 02, 2012

Because we just can’t let Amy Pond go. And also because she looks really cute here.

Karen Gillan makes an appearance on Conan O’Brien

Her hair and makeup are stunning. That color looks fabulous on her. It’s the perfect sit-down-interview dress.


It’s simply not doing her girls any favor.We fully admit that, as ‘mos, we never really paid that much attention to her measurements, but we’re pretty sure her boobs don’t have to look like two apples shoved into her dress. We don’t know if that’s a bra issue (or lack of one) or a fit issue, but it’s a shame. Everything else is working like gangbusters.


Some backstage shots:


And she’s so charming it makes our teeth ache:

      Karen is stu-nning, but that dress would only work on Kelly Bundy. 

    • suzanne77

      Amy Pond forever. “Be a good girl” made me sniffly too.

    • RebeccaKW


      I think it’s lack of a bra.

    • charlotte

       Not the perfect sit-down-interview dress to me. We can almost see her ladybits.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_NMLK23QK6C7NMLMVVYA5POXKJY WhiteMage

         agreed. more like heidi klum’s sitdown dress. but good for pond!

    • Angel Ratliff

      The dress was great, but when I watched the ep I was horrified by the shoes. HORR.I.FIED.

      A good strapless bra is hard to find (though it doesn’t look like she’s wearing one anyway.)

      I love how casual she is about seeing Nessie!

      • alula_auburn

        That was my favorite part.  Just give her a wave, on your way to the pub!

    • fnarf

      Speaking as a straight man here, I can say that from where I’m sitting there isn’t a single blessed thing wrong with her girls, her dress, or any other thing about her. She looks scrumptious and lovely.

    • gabbilevy

      The second to last photo is stunning, but something of this doesn’t sit perfectly right for me. But I adore her. And I’m laughing my ass off in the office. Fortunately, my coworkers are all Whovians.

    • Dave Provost

      That backlit photo from the backstage set? Phwoar!

    • Zippypie

      She’s so charming but she needs a bra!!  I don’t know if I’m happy or sad she’s moved to LA.  I mean, Amy Pond guest starring on CSI or something?  Oh no!

      • Jean Marie Downing

        If it means she can show up on Community’s Inspector Spacetime, I’m for it.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

          That would be the BEST if “Community” had her guest star!

    • MilaXX

      She does look great, although I think the boob thing is mainly due to her lack of said boobies.

      • VanessaDK

        Ohno! Don’t say it–she is so beautiful and natural–I hate to think of her turning into a silicon gumby out of insecurity about her cup size.

        • MilaXX

          I don’t think she needs to. It’s just that tall, thin bodies sometimes come with small boobs,

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        I agree MilaXX, she’s a tiny little thing!  I didn’t realize she was that slim.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      So close to perfect it’s painful!

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      She could be Christina Hendricks’ sister! 

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      You must buy apples at a different place than I do…….to me, she’s more plum-sized, which means she doesn’t even need to wear a bra, which means she has a built-in fashion advantage (on top of being young and cute and pretty and skinny and charming).  To me there’s absolutely nothing wrong with how she looks!  And I loved her banter with Conan.

    • MichaelStrangeways

      It would be nice if Conan would shut up and let her talk…

    • stoprobbers

      I love that she mostly spent the interview giggling and being a bit starstruck by Conan. Such a sweetheart. I still lust after the Philip Lim 3.1 sweater she wore at Comic Con. I will have you…

      • tereliz

        That WAS an awesome sweater. 

    • tereliz

      I don’t know, the dress looks a little dated and kind of trashy to me. But I don’t watch this Doctor, so maybe I’m unbiased. I kind of feel like the only thing saving her here is her hair and her face (and probably her accent in the interview).

    • nannypoo

      I don’t know, I just think she has teeny little boobs. Boobettes.

    • Michelle Cunningham

      Meh, I don’t find her charming as much as just dumb and giggly.  Thick as two short planks :s  I can’t wait for the next companion!

    • StellaZafella

      Luv Huh…
      I’m watching reruns now to catch up with what I’ve missed.

      The neckline is really supposed to ride a skosh higher to my eye…still off the shoulder but above the point where it appears to smash her darlings.

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      Ok, first I had to Google Amy Pond. I’m all set now. Cute girl. Shame about her boobs. I have to disagree that this is the perfect sit-down dress. Without the shot of her entire self, the proportions are off and the boobage is distracting. But let’s face it, everyone is looking at her cute face.

    • Rand Ortega

      Le Sigh. She’s luminous.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

       I adore her. So, so, so much. But I’d cut her for a shot at Rory. 

      • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

         Back off. I’m first in that particular line.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      I’m gonna say it’s a posture issue. Shoulders BACK, sweetie.

    • http://twitter.com/BrienneCalmer Brienne Calmer

      It’s the neckline- if you can call it that.  That flat piece of strappy whatever-it-is is sitting, all rectangular, over where the curve of the bust ought to start visually.  Breasts are shaped like raindrops; she’s completely camouflaging the top tapered bit.  Hence the apple effect- well, you call it apple, but I think Koosh ball.  Anyway.  Take the strappy thing up about four inches and she’d look more curvaceous.

      Dear LA, Please don’t wreck Ms. Pond. She’s ever so adorable, and if you turn her into a weight obsessed, strung out, silicone injected freak, I will burn you to the ground. Hugs and kisses.

    • http://www.what-the-frock.com Dana WhatTheFrock

      LOVE HUH. And I miss her already.

    • holdmewhileimnaked

      it’s a combo of the bra & the collar.

      edited to add:
      & it’s only in the pictures where she’s sitting down. so it’s also the angle or maybe the posture. she wouldnt have known that in advance, though, probably. although maybe she tried it on while sitting, most people dont. then again, most people arent dressing to be photographed in that position. so i’m not really contributing anything here, apologies. it’s still eleventy million degrees out & i’m just beat.

      otoh, she really looks great in some of the photos where she’s standing. i did wanna add that.

    • julnyes

      She is adorable and I hope L.A. works for her. 

    • jilly_d

      “mo’s”.  HA.  She looks adorable.  I don’t even mind the “apples”.  I’m pretty sure that neckline works on .01% of people and she is werquing it.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      Yay!! I watched that clip the other night and I was hoping you’d do a thing on it. She was SO adorable on the show that I didn’t even notice the boobs issue. She looked amazing and she was so funny. Aw. I’m going to miss Amy a little bit now.

    • jw_ny

      I honestly wouldn’t even have noticed her apples if it weren’t mentioned.

      Never saw her before that clip, but she really is quite charming.  I immediately liked her.

    • Girl_With_a_Pearl

      I have no idea who this person is, but she looks nice.  And as a straight woman, I didn’t really notice her apples.

    • SorayaS

      It’s her posture. Gorgeous look otherwise.

    • http://twitter.com/hurricaneemilyy Emily Shaver

      Most beautiful woman alive. Hands. Down.

    • formerlyAnon

      Gosh, she is so adorable and also lovely.

    • http://howtofaint.tumblr.com/ How to Faint

      “Apples shoved into a dress” describes my rack on a good day. Generally they look more like sad grapes. :( 

    • Sarah Rinehart

      who is she?

    • RzYoung

      Yeh, it’s proportions are a be off. I don’t watch Dr Who at all and never have, but it seems to me he gets through those assistants really fast! I can’t keep up with them. 

    • Corsetmaker

      It’s just not a good style for her. It flattens and pushes her down the way. You need boobs that can fight back for that style.

      She always seems so nervous in interviews. She’s giggly anyway, but it slips into nervy giggles on these things.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QYNAGYILEHAIYAZP2BEIPGJJIQ Cindy

      I hated this outfit.  The shoes were absolutely horrible.  She is adorable, though!

    • AnneElliot

      I think it’s a combination of the bra, the dress, and her posture.  I wish I had time to watch the entire clip, because she’s adorable.  I’m not much of a Whoovian but I’ve seen her on Graham Norton and she was darling. 

    • Solokitty

      Definitely her posture.  Sit up straight & shoulders back, girl.  Also a pull up the neckline a skosh higher and then no stopping the gasps at her look!  Very pretty.

    • Diane_G

      It’s a strapless-bra issue. The same thing happens to me when I put one of those on–I look like I’m smuggling apples, and candy corns when it’s cold.

      Why would someone upload a video on youtube and make in unavailable in a nicest country of Canada? :(

    • http://www.facebook.com/suzie.vazquez Suzie Vazquez

      Thought the same when I saw it. I don’t know if it’s that we’re all so used to giant tatas or pushed up cleavage. And if so, that’s disturbing and sad.

    • lucasuk82

      Not loving the cut of the dress, but red on a redhead is gorgeous.  I hope she really goes for it at the Baftas – I demand McQueen and an updo!


      Ugh, my sentiments exactly. Everything working but the mounds.
