Georgia May Jagger Explains Why She Models Jeans, How Her Parents Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger Feel About Her Going Topless
>> Hedi Slimane first met Georgia May Jagger at Fourchette, her father Mick Jagger's French residence in 2007, where he photographed her. The two have reteamed for Harper's Bazaar's November 2010 issue, for which Slimane filmed and photographed Georgia in New York — where she recently moved — in September. Slimane set the film (above) to a soundtrack from British band Egyptian Hip Hop, because he "want[s] more people to be aware of their music" and because "the band is precisely Georgia's age, and generation." The film, according to Slimane, is "meant to also be evocative of the glamorous heritage of Georgia M. Jagger, [and her parents] Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall['s] legacy."
Slimane captures Georgia topless — not something new for the model, who has more than a few discreetly topless ads for Hudson Jeans floating around. She says her parents don't mind. "My mum did a lot of very provocative work with Helmut Newton. She understands. It is pretty crazy, though. I didn't think that it was going to be on giant billboards everywhere. I'm sort of like, Oh, God!"
She likes modeling jeans, though: "When Mum was first modeling, it was all about that Thierry Mugler woman with the tiny waist and the giant ass. They used to pad their hips. I think it's much sexier. Lizzy [Jagger, her sister] and my dad are naturally skinny. I model jeans. You need a bum for those."
But despite the leniency when it comes to toplessness, Jagger says of Hall: "My mum is actually really wholesome. She remembers everything because she didn't take drugs like everyone else. She'll see a black-and-white picture taken 40 years ago and say, ‘I was wearing a red dress and gold eye shadow.' It's incredible." Also: "My mum hasn't been to New York for so long, but she used to live there in the '80s. So when she found out I was moving to Alphabet City, she freaked out."
And as for her father, Mick: "My dad's not a very intimidating father figure." Georgia has been dating Django James Stewart, the musician son of Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, for the last two years. "Our parents know each other," she adds. "My dad's cool with that kind of stuff."
Every person wants to be unique and recognizable. In fashion industry, it is both good and bad. If you have ordinary looks you'll get lots of work especially on the runway where clothes are important rather than girls who model those. But if you have something that differentiates you from all the others, it can be a key to world success.
Remember Cindy Crawford and her mole? The supermodel once said that she wouldn't have been so called-for as a model unless her mole was her trademark. Everyone knows Cindy Crawford for that mole.

>> Georgia May Jagger has been starring in Hudson Jeans ad campaigns for the past year, and now, the model is set to debut her first-ever designing endeavor for the brand: a 20-piece denim collection priced from $180 to $350. "I’m really surprised that so early in my career they allowed me to do this dream, design my own stuff," May Jagger told WWD. "The Hudson people approached me about doing the line. They asked me to get my inspirations together. I got a bunch of pictures and vintage jeans of my mom’s, and I did some sketches — I do art, so they weren’t that bad, but they weren’t amazing [laughs]. I wrote a lot of details and notes on them. My jeans are a totally different cut than the usual Hudson jeans. It’s a stretch denim and a higher cut on the hip, which I like because I’m a bit shorter, so I like that elongated leg thing."

>> W's publisher Nina Lawrence introduced the latest iteration of the magazine — under Stefano Tonchi's guidance — as one with more international slant, a magazine "younger and more sophisticated as far as voice."
In addition to a plethora of ads — Tonchi has to prove he can sell the magazine, after all — the issue includes a closeup of Lindsey Wixson's lips; a story exploring designers suddenly liking curves, because, according to Tonchi "it is not really true — [the designers] just love women with breasts"; a spread with Georgia May Jagger; a portfolio Tim Walker submitted of young people from his neighborhood in East London; and a profile of Riccardo Tisci.
The issue hits newsstands nationally on Aug. 24, and the magazine's website is getting a "facelift" the first week of September. Because the magazine is procured with a global outlook, there are no international editions in its future, a la Vogue, according to Lawrence, but there could be regional sections for Italy, France, and the like (assuming all goes well).
Tonchi said the October cover was shot last Saturday, but no further hints were given . . . although Lynn Hirschberg, who has a hand in the cover choices, according to Lawrence, did say that they are trying to get away from the uniformity and sameness of cover choices — "although we may end up in that arena [eventually], it's nice to be in the newness, to register in a different way [for now]."
A peek at two of the spreads in the September 2010 issue in the gallery below.
Mick Jagger's spawn Georgia May is having a hot moment. She's a Versace girl, the face of Chanel cruise, and the body for Hudson Jeans. Add to that list her own spread called "Like a Rolling Stone" in Vogue China's July issue. The Brit beauty plays sexy bookworm with stacks of vintage books and fulfills every school boy's fantasy . . .
After working her stuff on the runway for Chanel's Cruise collection, Georgia May Jagger is continuing her Karl streak with an ad for the Cruise collection. Shot by the Kaiser himself, Georgia looks every bit the cool girl in the brand's bohemian cool offerings.
"Because Miss Jagger is the modern girl. She is the girl of today. There is a total identification between her and the clothes. They could be her clothes," Lagerfeld said. "She is totally at home in Chanel. And that fits in the pattern of what Saint-Tropez can represent, what it is not really and yet what it can inspire."
Georgia is a refreshing, off-kilter addition to Karl's clan — we can't wait to see more from the sultry model.
>> Set on the French Riviera in Saint Tropez with the models arriving on motorboats from a yacht in the harbor, Chanel's Cruise 2011 show reflected the '70s throwback party atmosphere emulated in Karl Lagerfeld's short film shown last night. Natasha Poly opened barefoot in a pastel print dress, and Karolina Kurkova and Abbey Lee Kershaw danced down the runway in knits. Toni Garrn and Jacquetta Wheeler made runway returns, and Crystal Renn, riding the current "plus size model" wave, made a cameo.
For the finale, front rowers like Anna Mougalis, Carine Roitfeld, Andre Leon Talley in a green cape, Emmanuelle Alt, Diane Kruger, Vanessa Paradis, and Franca Sozzani witnessed Lagerfeld's bodyguard Sebastien Jondeau pulling up on a motorcycle (which temporarily stalled) with Georgia May Jagger on the back. Then, appropriately, to a Rolling Stones soundtrack, Lagerfeld appeared in a purple jacket for his bow — and Abbey Lee threw her arm around Karl's shoulder.
>> Model Talk: Crystal Renn to Walk Chanel Resort Show Tomorrow; Ymre Stiekema Returns to Modeling Full-Time —We got a preview of Karl Lagerfeld's new short film earlier today, but one castmember who wasn't revealed until tonight's screening in Saint Tropez, where the Chanel Resort 2011 show takes place tomorrow: Georgia May Jagger as Brigitte Bardot. Will she walk in the show? She's definitely in Saint Tropez taking part in the festivities, as is Crystal Renn, who's reportedly confirmed to walk. And a bit more model news, while we're at it: Prada's former campaign exclusive Ymre Stiekema is reportedly back from her modeling break starting June 10, after finishing her studies this Summer.
