'Doctor Who': Matt Smith and costume designer Howard Burden on the Doctor's new duds

What does it take to get the Doctor into a new coat?

The garment must be tailored to allow for ease of movement — through time and space, no less — with pockets large enough to hold necessities like a sonic screwdriver, and it has to get the thumbs-up from series producers, network executives and fans.

“When I first came into the series [on Asylum of the Daleks], we had an established look for the Doctor. As subsequent episodes came in, I was told that we could actually change the look,” says season 7 costume designer Howard Burden. “It was quite an intense process to actually make sure everyone was happy.”

Most importantly, the Doctor himself is quite pleased. “I’ve loved every costume, but this one’s the coolest,” says Matt Smith of his character’s new look, which includes a waistcoat and a new pair of boots.

“The Doctor’s getting rather dapper,” agrees Smith’s co-star, Jenna Louise-Coleman. Still, while the Doctor has a natty new signature look, “I get to change every single episode, which is nice,” Coleman says.

Beauty Geek: How to create 'Doctor Who' nail art

When Katy Perry performed at the annual Night of Too Many Stars benefit (airing tonight at 8pm EST on Comedy Central), she sported a Halloween-themed manicure with images of candy corn, ghosts and spiders. The pop star’s nail art was spooky-cute (see it here), but us Beauty Geeks are more into the kind of mani that will scare the pants off of people. So we called on nail artist Kayleigh O’Connor to come up with a bone-chilling look especially for EW.

Keep reading to get  step-by-step instructions for creating O’Connor’s Doctor Who-themed manicure.  READ FULL STORY
