Lela Rose at New York Fashion Week Spring 2015
So far, Doctor Who has been very good at providing realistic costumes for its female leads. Rose’s hair, makeup and fashion sense looked appropriate for a 19-year-old girl who grew up in a London council estate. Donna wore clothes that implied she shopped in bog-standard department stores, while Martha, a doctor from a more middle-class family, looked a bit more put-together.
Then once we reach the Moffat era, both of Amy’s jobs (“kissogram” and fashion model) were based on her attractiveness, so her casual-but-beautiful appearance made sense. But Clara’s fashion sense was always a lot harder to pin down, partly because the show failed to tell us much about her as a person. The idea of her being vain and egocentric was introduced this season, but with little to back it up except the Doctor’s many inexplicable comments about her appearance.
