Divorce; Karen Elson & Jack White Style

Jack & Karen in Vogue by AL

We believe its all about creating your own style and as long as your not harming anyone else, then live your life as you wish. That being said, we were really impressed to find out that one of the most independently stylish rockers Jack White and his fashion model wife Karen Elson were not only divorcing, but throwing a “divorce party”.

Official Invite of Karen & Jack's Divorce

After over six years together, and several hundred fashionable apperances, the couple announced the split and sent invites out to their closest friends, just last Friday, along with their two children Henry Lee and Scarlett.  The event was private, but guests celebrated per their hosts requests with dancing, drinking and food.  Similar to a birthday party, or retirement celebration, the couple showcased memorable photos of their years together. Right before the couple married they did a shoot together with the infamous Annie Leibowitz, documented by Vogue. The two have always been unique and had a very artistic style between them, both alone and together. Jack White’s representative released an official statement from Karen and Jack saying;  “We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow. In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party, an evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.”

In honor of their memory, check out White Stripes video Blue Orchid, which was released just before the couple married some six years ago.

Congrats to the couple who are setting an example of peace, love and honor for their children, friends and fans!
