Ten Things Musette Loves About Karen Elson

1.)Rare Beauty. Karen Elson's red locks and defined face, sans eyebrows, combines an old Hollywood glamour with an ultra-modern edge.
Mrs. Jack White. The marriage of Elson and White marked the union of the most bewitching face of our time and the coolest musician of our time. (The two were wed by a shaman in a canoe on the Amazon river...Awesome.)
3.)Songstress. Elson's singing skills have been highly acclaimed by the most discerning critics. Check out her work in super hip, politically aware cabaret group The Citizens Band. Talented and morally conscious? Now that's hot!
4.)Muse. Karen has served as muse for none other than Karl Lagerfeld and uber-fashion photographer Stephen Meisel. Doesn't get much more fashion than that.
5.)Shopping Openmindedness. When this leggy beaut isn't swiping her credit card at luxury stores she can be found scouring the racks at Urban Outfitters and her favourite vintage clothing shops.
6.)Making her Mark. Together with another Musette favourite, Chan Marshall aka Cat Power, Elson recorded a cover of Serge Gainsbourg's racy and controversial song, Je t'aime... moi non plus.
7.)Circle of Friends. The likes of Marc Jacobs and Zooey Deschanel consider Elson a close chum. Musette would like to as well.
8.)Brit It Girl. Elson can be spotted staying true to her roots by enjoying Sunday nights at New York City pubs downing a hearty helping of shepard's pie.
9.)Yummy Mummy. As mother to Scarlett and Henry, Karen continues to outshine the rest. She walked the runway for MJ while expecting, and stole the red carpet shortly after giving birth.
10.) Face of Fashion. Elson has been the face of Chanel, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, and Mulberry. Now that's one good reason to shop!
