This week's Muse is model/musician Karen Elson. Is it just me or is every model out there becoming a musician? And every musician becoming a model. Hmmm...anyways, Karen Elson, up until a few months ago, was the wife of White Stripes/Deadweather frontman Jack White. Unfortunately, they are no longer together. Sad, but Karen Elson still has a lot going on. She released an album in 2010 entitled The Ghost Who Walks produced by Jack White. Elson's mostly known for her modeling career, however. She has done campaigns for Lanvin, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior and Versace, just to name a few.
Karen Elson's look is quite similar to Florence Welch, although Elson was famous way before Welch even began her career. Elson's haunting voice and ghostly looks give her a sharp, wicked edge opposed to the soft, feminine looks that models now have. Elson's strikingly good looks and blues-style writing is why she's this week's muse.
