Karen Elson’s Catwalk Nerves

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Shows, Models,

Karen ElsonKaren Elson has an "anxiety attack" every time she does a catwalk show.

The model-and-singer admits she gets terrified whenever she has to walk down a runway so she doesn't really do fashion shows any more.

"Walking down a catwalk is terrifying. I am so useless, I have an anxiety attack every time I do it. I don't really do shows any more for that reason. Walking down a runway, with the lights, the music and all the faces looking at mend the terrifying high heels that are often, for me at least, way too big and falling off. I have these sudden panic attacks that I'm going to trip up. I almost will myself to fall. I really don't do a lot of shows. It would be fun to do them, but I'm terrified, absolutely terrified."

Karen also revealed when she's performing on stage, she likes her outfits to be as dramatic as possible: "I make it dramatic. I try and create a look, like, on my last record I had a lot of fringe. Fringy, fringy stuff. The band and I had a little look going. I think visually it's always good to have some kind of look going on. It makes the performance interesting."

Karen Elson in Marie ClaireKaren Elson has returned to modeling for the first time since her split from husband Jack White.

The former Vogue cover girl - who has modeled 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.

"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 labeled as a "freak" when she first started her modeling career: "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!"

Tom Ford Womenswear Fashion Show Unveiled

A sneak peek from Emily Blunt in Harper's Bazaar and full-length images at Vogue are simply not enough when it comes to viewing Tom Ford's Spring/Summer 2011 womenswear collection. Thankfully, the designer does have a heart enough to offer fashion hungry fans a video of his line's private show.

In the video, a handful of fashion editors stare in awe and amazement at the collection, which was modeled by an interesting mix of celebrities and models -- from Daphne Guinness and Lauren Hutton to Beyonce and Julianne Moore. Set to model Karen Elson's song, "Pretty Babies," the video's cuts flash (unfortunately) as frequently as Terry Richardson's camera. They may be quick looks of the designs, but it's definitely better than nothing!
