Karen Elson plays a wide-range of characters in ‘An Ever-Changing Lady” by Yelena Yemchuk for the August 2013 issue of Vogue Italia. Delivering a delightfully, dramatic editorial, this multi-talented model/actress shows us that she’s no one trick pony with a power piece of performance art that will have you wondering if the stage will be her next stop. Embracing each personality with the kind of unrestrained vigor of a theater veteran, here we see her explode on the scene with an amazing range of acting ability that makes her both beautiful and believable. Wearing eclectic ensembles created to commemorate the enduring influence of the 70’s, Jacok K puts together a spectrum of styles that run from high-end chic to glam-rock cool. Celebrating the relevancy of the era, each look is sharply characterized by several unique trends that have all left an indelible mark on the fabric of fashion and pop-culture. And with a wonderful array of (made to order) wigs by Esther Langham and retro-eccentric makeup by Romy Soleimani, the plot thickens, turning these simple stories into a series of volcanic vignettes.
