Whether she’s kicking butt as the red-headed Ruby Roundhouse in the Jumanji movies or catching Star Lord’s eye as the beautiful but tough blue cyborg Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we know that Karen Gillan can pull off pretty much any look. A fact that the Scottish actress proved even further in her latest post on Instagram, where she literally pulls off six drastically different looks during a photoshoot with Fault Magazine. See the incredible pictures below.

In the post, Karen Gillan shares six different outfits and seven different photo options for the Fault Magazine May edition cover photo, including the magazine cover photo itself. Gillan can be seen in a sophisticated black dress with subtle pinstripes and an edgy deep V slicing from the collar down to her midriff.

Fashion stylist Luca Kingston paired the dress with a set of elbow-length black leather gloves, adding an additional cosmopolitan touch to the outfit. Gillan wore her hair in waves down her back with minimal makeup and no visible jewelry other than small earrings hidden beneath her long hair. 

While we can see why the editor picked this particular outfit for the cover photo as it is both striking and elegant, the other pictures in the collection also showcase Karen Gillan’s talent as not just an A-list Hollywood actress, but a fashion model as well. In the second photo, Gillan is diving into a spring theme with a fuzzy bright pink and green dress that is paired with floral earrings and vibrant green heels.

In another photo, Gillan looks more like a pop star in a bright blue sequined jumpsuit paired with a matching blue sequined jacket, but in all photos, the actress looked beautiful and refined.

Throughout her illustrious career, Karen Gillan has kept it real with her fans, even courageously opening up about her struggles with mental health, candidly acknowledging that her anxiety has intensified since attaining fame and that her mental health struggles have even occasionally caused sleepless nights.

Despite these challenges, Gillan has found effective ways to manage her anxiety while simultaneously honing her craft.
