We fell a little in love with Karen Elson when we read the Rookie interview with her, where she gave some killer insight on matters of life, love, and opera. She's Jack White's ex-wife, yes, but let's forget that and focus on the badass things she done.
The Australian-born Elson built a multifaceted career that started with her quick rise as a supermodel. She's been on the cover of the big names in fashion - Vogue, Elle, Lula, W - since being discovered at 16 by a modeling agency in Manchester. Besides being a big-deal model, she's a musician who's opened for Neko Case and has been compared to the vocal style of Lorette Lynn.
All of this, and she gives some killer advice as Rookie's "You Asked It" guest columnist. Check out those columns here - the advice may be intended for teens, but it's got a lot of weight and truth to it for adults, too.
