For a while I’ve been composing my list of female inspirations. Gals with style, energy, talent and BALLS appeal to me, be they musicians, models, actors, writers, artists etc. Enjoy the prettiness 🙂

Here it is.
How beautiful is this band?
I love Jack White.
I love everything Jack White wears, everything Jack White does, everything Jack White plays, everything Jack White says, everything Jack White touches… which is why it is surprising for me to be able to say that I love Jack White’s wife too!
Not only is wife Karen Elson, in my opinion, the second most beautiful redheaded model in England (next to Lily Cole of course), but she also makes amazing music.
Above is a song by Miss Elson/Mrs White called “The Ghost Who Walks” which is recorded live. Apart from being stunning, she also has a brilliant voice AND plays guitar (but you would wouldn’t you, living with the genius and all.) Hubby Jack has been producing the album. Sigh.
The other ladies in Jack’s life at the moment are a rocking little band called The Black Belles.
Above is the video to their first single “What Can I Do?” directed by Jack. (And yes, eagle eyes will have spotted that Erin Belle is one of the girls shimmying with Jack in the “I Cut Like A Buffalo” video. Sigh.)
Speaking of the Dead Weather, the band are set to release the first single from their as-of-yet untitled second album sometime this spring. The song will be called “Blue Blooded Blues” (just sounds awesome), and Jack will be stealing the spotlight from the goddess that is Alison Mosshart, by taking vocals on this one.
Jack’s also working on a band I’ve seen – and was thoroughly underwhelmed by – called The Smoke Fairies. Lots of harmonies and stuff. Alongside producing a new album for Elvis Presley’s ex Wanda “The Queen of Rockabilly” Jackson.
And in terms of the original girl in Jack’s musical life – Meg, I don’t know when that White Stripes record is going down. Apparantly they have started to work on it, and it will be called “Elevator Door”. But I’ve also heard they hate each other at the moment, so who knows. But they do have a DVD coming out soon..
