The future is rosey for Karen Elson in ‘La Vie en Rose’ by Alexi Lubomirski for the May 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. Alternating between dusty black & white and sepia-saturated color, Lubomirski captures the self-described dualist floating somewhere between quiet reflection and hopeful effervescence. Showing shades of symbolism, it’s in this exciting arc of ethereal artistry that we see the seeds of new beginnings starting to bloom. Facing a new life post divorce, the fierce mother/model/muse opens up about her future, in the accompanying cover interview by Stephanie Refanelli. Candidly sharing her fears and fantasies, it’s clear her trademark transparent beauty isn’t just limited to her luminescent skin. A super model with the heart of an artist, this modern-day renaissance woman is the perfect match for the Art of Fashion issue.
