Karen Elson Covers Vogue Italia In An Intense Amount Of Layers

Posted: Updated:

It's only just beginning to get cold here, but Vogue Italia has its models all bundled up.

Karen Elson and several other wrapped-up models showcase the latest cold weather looks in the mag's October issue.

The theme of the cover shoot (translated from Italian, so we apologize) is "glam glaciation" with the pics "all about glacial sobriety."

If you ask us, some of the pics look like our family portraits from the Old Country -- but way more glam, of course.

It's a much more serious turn for Elson, who more recently boogied down with Raquel Zimmerman for Lanvin's fall campaign to some Pitbull tunes.

But we like these glacial-themed photos as well, in which the models don some enviable (if not a bit drab) wools and furs by Giorgio Armani.

Check out a couple of pics below and head to to see more pics plus a video of the shoot!
