Georgia May Jagger

SAY THE NAME JAGGER TO A BREADTH FULL OF LIP, BRIMMED WITH A WIDE-TOOTH FRONTAL AND YOU HAVE GEORGIA MAY, THE YOUNGEST DAUGHTER OF ROLLING STONES MAN MICK AND HIS FORMER WIFE JERRY HALL. THOUGH IT MAY BE HER DAD’S NAME THAT STIRS THE VIVID IMAGE MOST TRAVERSED BY THE ROCK-ROYALTY DIPTYCH FROM THE TOUR BUS SHE GREW UP ON, IT’S THE MATRIARCHAL SIDE OF THE JAGGER FAMILY LINES THAT FORGED GEORGIA’S EVER-SPINNING MODELLING FORAY. 

The Family Clan 

Among her icons, Georgia May, GM, or George as she also goes by, her mother is the first. Jerry Hall’s reputation as the fiery Texan 70s supermodel, a favourite of Helmut Newton, roommate of Grace Jones and dinner companion to New York’s art crew among Dali and Warhol, it’s difficult to leave out Jerry’s trail when speaking through Georgia’s momentum. There is a strong family rooting that keeps the Jagger women close on an off the camera. Georgia, Jerry and Lizzy, Georgia’s older sister, appeared together for the May 2014 cover of Vogue Italia. 

Among the expansive ‘face of’ title that Georgia has taken on, Thierry Mugler’s fragrance Angel swings the pendulum directly back to her mother’s 1995 Mugler Angel shoot in White Sands, New Mexico. Georgia was cast for the campaign this year and the brand’s communication strategy eased the Jagger mother-daughter effect for the fragrance’s Mother’s Day campaign. Illustrated best through Georgia’s vision of her mum’s incessant glamour, one defining Jerry Hall moment that must be mentioned here: The 1995 Thierry Mugler New Mexico Angel shoot for which she rolled up through the desert in a white limousine clad in a white dress, white crocodile boots and Louis Vuitton trunk filled with her own lingerie. It’s no quest to see how Georgia’s biggest influence trickles down from her mother’s high defiance. She fell into her closet countless times and keeps her mom’s Studio 54 mirrored hotpants close, one of her favourite pieces aside from the vintage goodies she scours at Relic and Alfie’s Market in London.  

Minnie Mouse

Unanimously grounded, Georgia May is clearly a home bred London girl. Roll call from her classic Brit brand predecessors, she’s following a similar trajectory. Next to her enamored trail makers, Georgia’s locked a pact with another Minnie. She’s been called upon to curate the best Minnie Mouse inspired images for Disney’s upcoming campaign at London’s Somerset House. Banding together with British design newcomer Ashley Williams, Georgia has been promoting the designer in her PVC Minnie Mouse skirt and insignia dress for Williams’ first solo debut at London Fashion Week. Georgia walked her Autumn/Winter 2015 runway bearing the designer’s cunning kitsch, Minnie’s lightly tilted Goth flipside.  

Her haute friendships, they too are just as grounded as Georgia May. Vivienne Westwood loves the Londoner in her; she walked the designer’s first runway when she was 16. Karl Lagerfeld rallied Georgia to join the Chanel troupe in his Spring /Summer 2015 spectacularly staged protest. Alessandro Michele, Gucci’s new intriguing Creative Director, took Georgia as his date to the Met Gala this past May. They stepped out of New York’s Bowery Hotel in friendship slung silk. Alessandro designed a custom Gucci dress for her in lilac silk georgette, belted to the floor with hand embroidered birds of paradise, silk threads, glass beads and crystals to make the gala’s theme ‘China Through the Looking Glass’ fly. Her dad’s Rolling Stones co-rocker Keith Richards’ daughters, Theodora and Alexandra Richards, sunnied-up to Georgia’s “ninety-four pairs of shades for ninety-four days of summer” 2014 campaign as part of her gig as Sunglass Hut’s Global Brand Ambassador. Shades in constant rotation, she just returned from a vacation in Vietnam. In the vein of work and play packaged in one, she’ll most likely be hanging out at Glastonbury Festival with her friends Cara Delevigne and Suki Waterhouse this summer and carrying her through her endless roll of runways and campaigns is her first choice listening is Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Patti Smith. Tunes for her full-grinned, always playful off-time mode, which so refreshingly makes Georgia May a coveted gem among the model mayhem.

Short Facts

Trademark

Without a doubt, Georgia May’s trademark is her wide capped front teeth and full brimmed Jagger lips. 

Distinctiveness

She grew up on the road in her dad, Mick Jagger’s, Rolling Stones tour bus. As a kid she remembers waking up in a new city every morning. After moving briefly to New York, close to her sister Lizzy, she missed London too much and moved back to her family’s house on the outskirts of Richmond. Despite her high profile parents, her distinctiveness stays solid in her home roots.
