Try as they might fashionistas couldn’t out-vogue Karen Gillan on Monday night where the flame haired clothes horse took home the Scottish Fashion Icon of the Year award at the 2012 Scottish Fashion Awards.
Wearing a bright yellow shirt dress by Twenty8Twelve, teamed with purple nails and a mulberry lipstick, Gillan certainly made an impression but kept her comments on her upcoming departure from the TARDIS strictly low key.
Speaking to STV Gillan said:
“It was so sad. It was this bittersweet thing cause I’m really excited to move onto other things, I’m actually going on to do a film in Glasgow which I’m really excited about, but yeah it was so sad cause I’m leaving my best friends in a weird way.”
Moving ever forward, the film in question is Not Another Happy Ending where Gillan will be play a miserable writer who finds success only to be struck by writers block – leaving her exasperated publisher to get back to her miserable ways and writing again.
Held at Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium and hosted by Alexa Chung, the awards celebrated the best of Scottish fashion and being an icon, Gillan offered her view on the recent wave of innovation.
