It may be hard to believe but this cover caused quite the stir when it hit the newsstands back in the February of 1997. Styled by the ever perverse talent of American photographer Steven Meisel
(of Madonna Sex book fame), Karen, then just eighteen, was
persuaded to shave off her eyebrows for the shoot, an act which subsequently earned her the lovely nickname "Le Freak". Ah, I will always be a fan of the eccentric stylings of Vogue Italia
and of this most enchanting lady...
