Karen Elson and Christina Hendricks
So it's true! Christina Hendricks was, in factn the driving force behind Karen Elson's fiery locks. At the WWD centennial party, Karen revealed to The Cut that she had read Christina's statement in Harper's Bazaar and was backing it up 100%.
Since celebs have been known to either make up stories, or deny other people's tales so it's nice to see something true for once. Karen says:
I read that [Harper’s Bazaar story] and you know, she did tell me years ago. We did a shoot together and I remember her beautiful red hair, and I had the worst sort of strawberry blonde mousy hair, and she was like, ‘Here, you should dye your hair red, it’s going to work for you. But then when I came to New York and I was about to work with Meisel and do the cover of Italian Vogue, he was going to choose red or black; and I willed the red. Thanks to Christina Hendricks, I willed it. So yeah, she encouraged the red hair.
