Francine Ballard's Rantings of the Accessory-Obsessed.
Christina Hendricks claims that back in the 90s-Karen Elson was about to quit modeling until they ran into each other at a go see and Christina gave Karen her hair color formula. And the rest is history. Dontcha hate when you copy someone’s swagger, then you both get famous and the other one tells on you?

GIRL’S GOT VOICE: KAREN ELSON CAN WORK THE CATWALK AND SING
Charlotte Gainsbourg’s piece in Interview about supermodel turned songstress, Karen Elson piqued my interest, but it wasn’t until I actually heard her voice ala Daily Candy this am that I believed someone who has worked (and worked and worked) in the fashion business for Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and YSL to name a few, might actually have real talent as a performer off the runway.
Married to The White Stripes guitarist and lead vocalist, Jack White, Karen lives with her husband and two children in Nashville, Tennessee. And to bring it full circle- she also owns and operates a vintage store there called Venus & Mars where she sells high end rare vintage garments and adornments and cheap and cheerful vintage dresses and jewels. OMG how cool is she? Check out her store- it rocks.
