Free as a bird: Karen Elson poses for Reed Krakoff's Spring 2012 campaign

With Reed Krakoff’s Spring 2012 collection so full of color, what better model to front the new campaign than the flame-haired Karen Elson?

The model—who’s also the face of Roberto Cavalli’s glitzy Spring ’12 campaign—was photographed for the ads by Krakoff himself, who previously shot Stella Tennant for his Fall 2011 campaign.

In the dreamy images, Elson sports a Crayola-bright sequin-trimmed dress with a matching yellow python bag, as well as a shiny python skirt—which she wore while posing arms spread, ready to take flight, much like the feathered friends that were featured in Krakoff's Spring 2012 prints.

Talk about a free spirit!
