Karen Elson for Vogue September 2012

It almost seems like the futuristic theme comes rolling in with every September issue, but somehow American Vogue managed to trump them all with this editorial featuring a now silver-haired Karen Elson.

Photographed by Steven Klein and styled with some of fall’s edgiest pieces by Tonne Goodman, we can almost hear the slow  and epic crescendo of the theme song from 2001 while we gaze over the below editorial. Happy fall!
