Like mother, like daughter
Well we did recently note how it’s not only about the teenagers in modelling at present, but that the older laydees are suddenly finding themselves back in vogue.
Exhibit B: the August 2013 cover of ELLE Brazil, starring 1970s modelling icon Jerry Hall and her daughter Georgia May Jagger.
Sure, it’s one of multiple covers of the edition (click here to see more, including Georgia May’s solo cover) but as far we can ascertain, this is the first magazine cover Hall has done in two years. The last one was Ponystep magazine back in 2011.
And this looks to be the mother-daughter duo’s first fashion magazine cover together.
Jagger, who is herself now 21, has clocked up just 21 covers so far according to models.com’s listings. Eight of them in fact this year.
At 5’7”, Jagger is on the petite side of the modelling scale. But as previously noted, charisma can occasionally trump height in modelling. Particularly when your mother is Jerry Hall and your father is Mick Jagger.
The duo first began modelling together back in 2010, for the UK launch of Australian beauty brand Invisible Zinc, before going on to shoot a Christmas campaign for H&M in 2011. And then a campaign for Sunglass Hut earlier this year.
Over the past 13 years, Hall has appeared in a number of different theatrical productions. She is perhaps best known for her role as Mrs Robinson in The Graduate. After taking over the role from Kathleen Turner in the West End production in 2000, she would reprise it on Broadway and in Toronto, North America and Perth, with a Melbourne season commencing next month at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
But she does now appear to be having something of a modelling renaissance. The mother-daughter novelty factor notwithstanding, Hall is about to appear alongside two other 1970s icons in a new campaign for the MAC beauty brand.
The new MAC line is a collaboration with the estate of the late Puerto Rican fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez, whose work helped define that fashion era and who is credited with having discovered, among others, 17 year-old Hall in Paris in the early 1970s.
