Another year, another vintage of model springs from the loins of the great Mick Jagger. Other rock gods can lay claim to model progeny: Steven Tyler, Rod Stewart, Bryan Ferry, and Bob Geldof have all sired one or two. And co–Rolling Stones Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood have fathered two each. But of Mick’s seven children, a whopping four (Jade, Elizabeth, James, and now Georgia May) have made it in the major leagues of modeling. Georgia, 17, follows her mother, Jerry Hall, and siblings into the family business with a debut ad campaign for the blue-jean company Hudson. She says the experience was “totally wicked, as I felt totally involved in the creative process.”
“Modeling is always something I’ve really admired because I’ve seen my mum and sister do it,” she adds. “But it wasn’t something I ever thought I’d do.” While she enjoys it, she sees it mainly as “a great way to get into other things, like art and design and photography. I think all the stuff that happens before the pictures are taken is much more exciting.” Her childhood dream was to be a singer or “a one-woman circus,” as she is passionate about animals, but for now, “it’s more important for me to be here with my family because I am still really young.” With one year of school left, Georgia lives with her mother in Richmond, outside London. And what does her father make of her modeling? “I don’t think he really feels that much about it, because he knows that it’s not my main goal in life. He knows that it’s a really good way to start off, especially if you want to become a photographer—just being around creative, artistic people is really inspiring. He doesn’t hate it at all.”
