No, this is not the new Florence & The Machine album cover. The redhead in question here is Karen Elson-supermodel, singer-songwriter and Missus Jack White. And if you haven’t heard of her, it’s time to get acquainted.
Karl Lagerfeld thinks of her as “a beauty for the new millennium” which basically means she’s got a weird-look that young girls will no doubt try to imitate. Karen’s strong and gutsy voice goes well with her country goth-skewed music and hubby Jack produced and even played drums on her debut album The Ghost Who Walks.
Now that she’s in the music biz, it’s going to be interesting to see if she’ll turn out like another Kate Moss-slaugthering classics with her chic rockstar friends. Checkout the rather White Stripes-ish video for ‘The Truth Is In The Dirt’ below. More Karen Elson at www.myspace.com/karenelsonmusic.
