Karen Elson serves pure elegance on the August 2016 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Russia. Wearing a ruffle adorned Gucci cape with an embroidered gown to match, the British model stares into the lens of Rachell Smith. Inside the magazine, Karen models even more of the Italian label in looks selected by stylist Anna Katsanis.
From a smart pantsuit and sweater to pastel-colored gowns, the redhead stuns in each shot. For beauty, hairstylist Keith Carpenter creates Karen’s 50’s inspired waves while makeup artist Niki M’nray gives her a soft pink lip color. / Manicure by Gerladine Holford
