Karen Elson might be a bit of a bohemian, but she enjoys dripping in diamonds just as much as the next girl. In fact, when it comes to accoutrements, she admires none-other-than Elizabeth Taylor, the queen of over-the-top jewels.
Sometimes two dresses are better than one — especially when you’re going from a formal soirée at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a late night party at the Standard Hotel. But while many guests at last night’s Met Gala opted to stick with their red carpet pick, a handful pulled out second designer looks for the latter half of the evening.
For i-D‘s fall Role Model issue, we’ve been gifted with not one, not even five, but sixteen different covers featuring some major faces. We wonder how long it took to schedule and plan the photoshoots?
Earlier this month, we caught a glimpse at what Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson, and more models were wearing at the Olympics’s Closing Ceremony. Tonight, we got a look at the supers in action on the telly, and it was nothing short of amazing and fantastic.
The spring campaigns are pouring in, and Roberto Cavalli‘s has secured its spot among our favorite of the season.
Well, well, isn’t W Magazine the cleverest in all the land? Next month’s issue has us all sorts of impressed thanks to a particularly brilliant Steven Meisel spread.
Well, we officially know what our favorite campaign video of the season. Lanvin, you totally win.
Thanks to snapshot-happy Terry Richardson, we don’t have to wait until Vogue‘s September issue drops to see pictures of Kate Moss‘s epic wedding festivities. This may be the first and only time we ever say this: thanks, Terry!
If it’s wrong to be excited about this news, then we don’t want to be right. Model-cum-musician Karen Elson and her fellow musician husband Jack White announced via press release today that they are splitting after six years of marriage. And while that’s sad, the following news turned our frowns right upside down: they’re throwing a divorce party to celebrate the decision!
This year’s Met Gala celebrated the genius of Alexander McQueen. The Costume Institute‘s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit opens tomorrow, and breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe it. But more on that later! The Met Gala is arguably the most fashionable event of the year, so it’s no surprise than many of the A-list guests dressed in keeping with the fashionable McQueen theme.
Karen Elson may be one of the world’s most famous redheads, but she didn’t start out that way. The super-turned-singer is naturally a self-described “mousy strawberry blonde” who now famously went bright red at Christina Hendricks‘ suggestion — and that color is now her trademark. So imagine our shock when we saw Ms. Elson as a blunt cut, platinum blonde in April’s Vogue. Color chameleon, indeed.
Karen Elson has an intimidatingly covetable life, what with her rockstar husband (and music career of her own), fabulously bohemian set-up in Nashville, and fifteen year career in front of the camera. But what’s most likeable about Elson is how refreshingly honest she is about her career, how she got her start, and the pressure — even now — to be thin.
There’s nothing like a good story — and the tale Christina Hendricks told Harper’s Bazaar about her red hair inspiring Karen Elson‘s now signature ‘do certainly takes the cake. But the icing (and the cherry) is that Ms. Elson is backing her up!
Marc Jacobs‘ fall ads for Louis Vuitton have been lauded for featuring three different supermodels of varying ages and hair color (diversity!): Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson, and Christy Turlington. But while the images certainly are gorgeous, it appears the creative people behind the ads took some liberties with the laws of physics.
Terry Richardson just keeps getting work! Despite all those pesky sexual harassment allegations, Terry just keeps going and going. His latest subject? Curvy Christina Hendricks for Harper’s Bazaar. While the photos are awesome, our favorite part is when Hendricks tells the interviewer that Karen Elson totally stole her signature red ‘do.
Karen Elson’s debut album debut album, “The Ghost Who Walks,” dropped last week and the flame-haired model is already receiving some seriously positive reviews. But not all models-turned-singers fare so well — though some have certainly come close — and in honor of those who came before Ms. Elson, we’ve compiled a brief history of models who (tried to) sing, in video form, of course.
