Karen Gillan at the “Thor: The Dark World” LA Premiere

Posted on November 05, 2013

They trotted out a whole bunch of Marvel comics-related celebs for this premiere (including the entire cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a couple Avengers folks), but the only one who caught our eye was the former Amy Pond, who’s co-starring in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, for which she had to shave her head completely.



“Doctor Who” star Karen Gillan attends the “Thor: The Dark World” Los Angeles Premiere in Hollywood, California in a pale blue blouse paired with a black velvet skirt, leather booties, and a Chanel bag.

Unfortunately, the cute hair and the eye makeup are the only things we like here. Everything else needs to burn. Except the Chanel bag. That just needs to be paired with something more appropriate for it. Sweetie, we love you, but this is a ticky-tacky mess. Your lip color makes us weep. Once again, Poster Natalie Portman’s judgmental facial expression says it all.

    This will never not be weird. Still, nose up, I love it.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    I can’t with the twee little bows on the blouse.

  • Random Compliments

    I totally disagree about the eye makeup. I think it’s awful.
    And that shirt is trashy Johnny Cash-y. Honey, go home and start over. I’ll hold your Chanel while we wait.

    • cakecakecake

      When you’re tired of holding it, I volunteer. My body is ready.

  • marlie

    The lip color is *horrible.* I hate the blouse and the skirt with a passion, and the bag is all wrong. But her eye makeup is lovely, and the buzz cut is cute.

  • charlotte

    Judgmental Natalie thinks she did the bald thing better.

    • tereliz


    • MoHub

      Nobody did bald better than Sigourney Weaver.

  • styrch

    Oh Amy Pond and your short little skirts… gimme that bag!

  • decormaven

    Ha ha! I love Poster Natalie Portman. It’s like Lady Justice, without the blindfold. Boy, and is this look tipping the scales. Who could ever pair that lipstick with that nail color? Blech. And those little bows should be reserved for toddler rompers only.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like the lip color or the bows on the shirt, but I’m kinda digging the look here. She looks great with a short cut.

    • Aaminah Khan

      Yeah, I kind of like it too. Maybe not the booties so much, but the rest is kinda cool.

    • Michelle Wilson

      I was kinda liking it too, or at least the idea of it. She’s got great long legs and I think she’s trying to walk a fine line between edgy (because of the hair) and adorable (because that face!) and it’s just not coming together. Perhaps if she’d gone with shorts and lost the bows it might have worked. And no frosty pink lips.

      • MilaXX

        I like that. Edgy requires less fussy & girly touches in order to work.

  • Scimommy

    The Doctor would have a hearts attack if he saw her, but somehow I have a feeling that Rory would dig the buzz cut.

  • I had a similar crushed velvet skirt I bought at K-Mart in 1995 in Idaho. Every word in that sentence is cringe inducing. (I love her fuzzy head, though!)

    • marlie

      Old Navy. ca. 2000.

  • Nancer

    Oh honey.

  • tereliz

    Huh. I know she’s not in the film, but she doesn’t look red-carpet ready, at all. The shirt is too daytime/Colonel Sanders’ daughter, boots look like rubbers, skirt looks like a cheap throw pillow. The hair is just making her look crazy. A classy/edgy cocktail dress would have been better here.

  • Erin Schubert Needham

    That looks like a shirt Temple Grandin would wear.

  • mmebam

    I have not found a single person for whom that weird frosted bubblegum pink lip color works.

    Here, Karen, I’ll keep that bag in safekeeping while you go home and get something else to wear. Trust me…

    • Tatiana Luján

      Mayyyyybe January Jones could pull that weird pink off.

  • Synnamin

    I HATE the makeup, the clothes, the shoes… She doesn’t even look like herself.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Well, the Chanel bag is a classic, so of course that gets to stay. The rest is a mess!

  • yuck. i just wanna rip those bows right off her. what is the point of that? the proportions are wrong, the torso is longer than the skirt. and what is that awful material the skirt is made of? faux dog hair? i’ll take those booties, though.

  • Sweetie, we know you’re not a boy. Lose the bows.
    And find whoever (whomever?) put that lipstick on you, smile sweetly at them, then punch them, straight in the junk.

    • Imasewsure

      Agreed. The bows look like they fell off of her head and landed on her color. Either way we already figured out that this baby is a girl.

    • formerlyAnon

      You have covered the essentials admirably.

  • boweryboy

    Natalie is all, “What the…?”

    She is absolutely adorable but nothing, not the outfit to the way she is standing, is werqing here.

  • Myrlin

    I’m sorry, hon, but in this instance, bow ties are definitely NOT cool.

    • Its like a Dual Colonel Sanders. Hell to the No.

  • alyce1213

    Her face looks great (except lipstick) — the eye makeup works because her hair is so short. I always get the urge to touch hair like that, like when a little boy gets a buzz or crew cut. The outfit is not good, but somehow she still looks so cute.

    • tereliz

      LOL, I always want to touch buzzed heads, too.

      • JDreesen

        it always amazed me how many people wanted to rub my head any time i had it shaved; and i was always kind of…what’s the word…somewhere between flattered [that they’d want to] and frantic [that i’d not deliver the right type of peach soft touchy-feely feel they were expecting]. so i guess i was always…frattered. flantric.

        i believe the number of time others asked to rub my head tops how many people ever wanted to touch my belly when i was pregnant (though there have likely been far more blog entries written about the latter being a problem, complete strangers just walking up and rubbing a pregnant woman’s belly).

        though i also recall people actually asking for permission to rub my head. i guess follicles are more off-limits to most than fetuses.

  • WendyD

    The clothes are a mess, but I love her ginger fuzz growing back.

  • calimon

    I can’t with the matching hair, eyes and also eyeshadow…exacerbated by the wrong shade of lipstick.

  • What..bows?!?…wtf…cannot..HATE…skirt…ugly lippy…NO.

  • Tatiana Luján

    The whole makeup is awful, but I like that it all seems as if she done it herself and she doesn’t seem swallowed or deranged by Hollywood.

  • hughman

    I’m picturing two tiny little cowboys looking for their neck ties.

  • Trickytrisha

    Dang… we need to come up with more words for tacky. That word is really getting a workout lately, a well deserved workout considering some of the more uh… tacky… looks that have shown up on red carpets.

    • somebody blonde

      Hey, we’re better off than some languages. There’s no equivalent word for tacky in Spanish, you know.

      • demidaemon

        That’s kind of sad. How do they express that combination of cheap, weird, and fussy to the world?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She chased down Col. Sanders, took his tie and then asked for his spare.

  • slizzy

    Cute legs, though.

  • I just want to stroke her head.

  • Danielle

    I love anyone who wears a quilted Chanel chain bag.

  • Chaiaiai

    Who are you? What is this? Why am I looking at this? Get out of my vision.

    But leave the bag.

  • nannypoo

    Beautiful eyes. Her lipstick looks like bubblegum and not in a good way.

  • sagecreek

    The clothes suck, but every thing above the neck rocks. I cannot wait to see where she goes!

  • Violentcello

    Eeee! It’s a weird little outfit, but I don’t care. I’m just happy to see her.

    Is it creepy to admire her fingernails? I always noticed them on the show and begrudged my misshapen finger shovels.

    • pookiesmom

      Misshapen Finger Shovels is a great name for a punk rock band.

      • Violentcello

        Oh, I’m so on it. We’ll all dress as different Doctors. Maybe have a token dalek somewhere.

  • Garcia Loca

    Those sad little bows are tragic.

  • Laura Renee

    Agree 100%.

  • jonesybj_notreally

    enh… quilted will never not mean my hideous practically plastic childhood robe (same color as her lips, incidentally). as seen on Betty in the fat suit.
    so, I kinda havta say nix on the bag.

  • redhead with tattoos

    The outfit is tragic and I JUST WANT TO RUB HER HEAD. She’s in perfect fuzzy hair here.

    • Sabin

      My hair guy gave me a cut just like that in 1986. He thought it looked gamine, but I just felt like I was AWOL from boot camp.

  • formerlyAnon

    But still cute. Possibly not what she was going for.

  • Kelly

    Little bows? Really?

  • I’m with judgey Natalie. Hiddy. That shirt alone. Who thought that was a good idea? Step forward your cowards.

  • Belvane

    First day of high school, 1971.

  • CT14

    Oh my! A Brit (well, scot) WITHOUT heavy black eyeliner all around her eyes!!!

    Is that hideous trend finally going away?

  • cocohall

    I wonder how many people are going to try to place a drink order with her. Poor girl. She looks like a demented cocktail waitress.

  • Hmmmm this look is making me crave some finger lickin’ good chicken…I wonder why.

  • quiltrx

    What IS this twee shit???

  • Eric Stott

    Ripping those twee little tows of would improve things

  • crash1212

    She totally rocks the shaved head look.

  • Snailstsichr

    Well, I like the color of her finger nail polish. I like the bag, but it seems too large for the red carpet.

  • Mary Lauer

    LOVE the eye makeup, but the lipstick is a godawful choice.

  • Gatto Nero

    Two too many bows. Weird hairy skirt. But anyone who can shave her head and look good gets props from me.

  • gg80302

    I think she’s kidding.

  • Tina Power

    I hate that shirt. Hate. It’s like there should be mini versions of her tied to her collar with those bows.

  • Cathy S

    The only thing I like is her hair, which is adorable.
