You make me proud to be a Nashvillian.







Karen Elson and Jack White photographed in Nashville, Tennessee in celebration of the release of Elson's debut album The Ghost Who Walks. Shot by Annie Leibovitz and styled by Grace Coddington for the June 2010 issue of US Vogue.

"As if the album--this inspired collaboration beween two strange birds--weren't enough, out of it has also come this photo shoot: the first time the couple has agreed to be photographed together. With ever prior request, Elson would ask White if he was interested, and his answer was always the same: Nope. 'But when this one came about,' she says, 'for whatever reason, he was sort of like, You know this is going to be the only time we are ever, ever, ever going to do this, so it might as well be with the best people on the planet, it might as well be with Annie and Grace, to get that one great image of the pair of us.'"

The result is fourteen pages of pure gold. Go pick up a copy because the interwebz does not do the spread justice.
