“What is she wearing?”

It’s the same for many of us, you can easily win the approval of friends or co-workers, the local bar staff even maybe your local DVD supplier. But it’ll take a lot more to impress your dear old mum, which is what Doctor Who star Karen Gillan is finding out at the moment!

Having recently done an interview and photo shoot in fashion magazine Grazia, Karen revealed that her mum will let her know if she doesn’t approve of something that she’s been “papped” wearing:

“My mum will see a picture and be like, “What the hell are you wearing?”

But despite this, Karen isn’t fazed-the best actors and actresses rarely are and goes on to defend her choice of clothing, boiling it down to simply:

“What I basically wear is a dress with some ankle boots.”

This, when you look at pictures of Karen out and about, is actually very true indeed! Despite the fact that her fashion sense is in the limelight, Gillan insists that nothing else has really changed for her since becoming involved with one of the biggest TV shows in the world:

“In a work sense, it’s changed. The sort of things I do now… photo shoots and events and… but in my private life, it’s remained pretty much the same. I’ve just surrounded myself with people who aren’t really affected by all that.”

To read the full interview, pick up the latest copy of Grazia Magazine, available from all good newsagents now.
