Karen Elson: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

Ever since I watched Karen Elson perform at Beauty + Essex to celebrate her new collaboration with Nine West last September, I became obsessed with her style. The model-turned-musician-turned-designer (whew!) wore a glittery, bohemian frock, and I’ve secretly wanted to emulate her look since then.

Elson shows off her boho chic fashion in peek-a-boo lace frocks, printed maxi dresses and fringed gowns. Although the famous redheaded model mixes vintage finds with high-end fashion perfectly, she didn’t always look this good -- especially in the late ‘90s. Even models don’t always get it right!

Check out more of Elson’s boho style as she celebrates her 33rd birthday this Saturday.
