Some hot pics of Karen Elson

Here's some hot pics of Karen Elson, a British model, singer/ songwriter and guitarist and twin sister filmmaker Kate Elson.

The Elson Twins were born in in Oldham, Greater Manchester 1979. Redhead siren Karen Elson was discovered at age 16 by the owner of Boss models in Manchester due to her exceptional good looks and long long legs. Karen's success came when Steven Meisel shot sexy pics of her for the cover of Italian Vogue on her 18th birthday. She has worked with most of the world's major fashion photographers and fashion designers, including Bruce Weber, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, Mert and Marcus, Steven Klein, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Meisel, Ellen Von Unwerth.

On May 9th, 2011 it was announced that Karen Elson has designed her own line of shoes and bags for fashion brand Nine West. The items are scheduled to appear in the Fall of 2011. Karen is also a member and performer with the New York City based political cabaret troupe The Citizens Band, appearing with them at various theatres as well as the downtown art gallery Deitch Projects since 2004. Critical response to Elson's performances have been unequivocally positive, with the press frequently commenting on her striking vocal skills.

Her first full length album was written, for the most part, in secret without letting her (then) husband Jack White hear what she was doing. “At home I would hide—I would play my songs really in isolation. I would lock the bathroom door and hide. Eventually he was like, ‘Why are you hiding this from me?’”. In February 2010, it was announced that Elson would be releasing her debut solo album The Ghost Who Walks, produced by Jack White. News of the album's release was made by a live acoustic performance video "The Ghost Who Walks (Acoustic)" posted on the internet. The album was released on Third Man Records via XL Recordings in May 2010. It received generally favorable reviews. Spin magazine gave it 7/10 and compared her voice to both Jenny Lewis and Loretta Lynn.
