Karen Elson - Karen Elson Returns To Modelling
Karen Elson is modelling again for Banana Republic's Christmas Collection following her split from husband Jack White earlier this year.
Karen Elson has returned to modelling for the first time since her split from husband Jack White.
The former Vogue cover girl - who has modelled on the runway for designers including Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Jean-Paul Gaultier - has posed for Banana Republic's Christmas Collection, following her divorce from the White Stripes singer.
The striking beauty is seen wearing a range of party dressed and jumpers for the campaign, and has admitted she much prefers to give presents than to receive them.
She said: "To be honest, I'm more of a giver. I love to find a gift that has meaning to the person I'm giving it to."
Flame-haired Karen - who is also a singer - has previously revealed she was labelled as a "freak" when she first started her modelling career.
She said: "It was all, 'You're the freak! You're the freak!' They would say, 'She's weird, she doesn't look normal. She's ugly.' I'd be backstage and every journalist would ask, 'You're a freak; how does it feel?' And I'd be like, 'I'm 18, I don't know how it feels, can I just go and smoke a cigarette, please?' but thank God that all happened because it changed everything!"
