Karen Elson Has The Worst Table Manners

We didn't want to be the ones to say something, but someone should. Karen Elson: Crawling on the dinner table is just bad manners. Still, we can't fight the urge to stare at these pics of the gorgeous redhead and beloved NY designer Jason Wu showing off some serious 'tude in Wu's spring '14 ad campaign.
Shot at Indochine, the photos display a serious range of don't-care-where-we-are-I'm-gonna-do-me swagger that would certainly elicit a finger-wag from mom. We're talkin' climbing on the booth, wearing sunglasses inside, and (gasp!) putting your elbows on the table (we're looking at you, Jason!).
Despite all the naughty fun, the true star of the ads remains the clothes (and Elson's incredible body!). The gown looks effortless and incredible as Elson slinks around Indochine's signature dining room. The new eyewear pops off the plate. And, don't get us started on how good that slip dress looks next to Jason's major designer attitude. Click through for more pics and remember: Wear as they wear, but don't do as they do — at least not at the real Indochine!
