Renowned English model Karen Elson has emerged a tour de force in the worlds of fashion and entertainment over her two decade-long career. At age eighteen, Karen took the fashion world by storm in a captivating Vogue Italia cover, shot by Steven Meisel. She has walked runways for such fashion houses as Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Valentino, and Gucci, starred in countless campaigns and can currently be seen as the face of Moschino Resort 2022. Elson has graced more than 100 magazine covers shot by top photographers around the globe, and is a leading advocate for model rights in the workplace.
Karen authored the book THE RED FLAME, a coming-of-age story chronicling her professional and personal metamorphosis, which was published by Rizzoli Publishing in October 2020. This April, Elson released her third full-length album, GREEN, off the heels of the critically acclaimed Ghost Who Walks and Double Roses (she also released an EP, Radio Redhead Vol. 1, in 2020). She co-wrote and produced GREEN with Nashville music heavyweights/the award-winning duo Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk. Elson also just completed her first residency at the iconic Café Carlyle in NYC where she hosted an intimate evening as she reflected on her long career with humor and songs.
