British model and singer/songwriter Karen Elson – who has recently discovered her genes are 99.9 percent European – lands one of three covers for the July 2019 ‘’The DNA Issue’’ of Vogue Italia (alongside Gigi Hadid and Imaan Hammam). Captured by photographer Harley Weir, Karen wears a look from Louis Vuitton on the cover.
In the cover story named ‘’The Day I Shipped My Origins’’, stylist Katie Grand chooses for Karen ensembles from brands like Marc Jacobs, Prada, Vivienne Westwood, Versace, Etro and Gucci.
