The beau­ti­ful off­spring of Jerry Hall and Mick Jag­ger, Ge­or­gia May Jag­ger looks at her grow­ing up years and bur­geon­ing ca­reer, and makes it clear she’s go­ing to live life on her own terms. By Gerald Tan. Styled by Windy Au­lia. Pho­tographed by Gan.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE FASHION -

t is a sunny Fri­day morn­ing and Ge­or­gia May Jag­ger is stand­ing in front of a gi­gan­tic orchid crafted en­tirely out of pa­per. “This is so cool,” the 23-year-old ex­claims in per­fect Bri­tish public school ac­cent, care­fully in­spect­ing the amount of hard work that went into mak­ing the huge orchid.

When the photo shoot be­gins, Ge­or­gia casts aside the imp­ish girl­ish­ness right on cue, work­ing the orchid like a sea­soned pro. At times she chan­nels a ’60s vixen; other times, she curves her body into al­lur­ing shapes that call to mind the pre­cise con­trol of a pro­fes­sional dancer. Ge­or­gia’s move­ments are hyp­notic and to bor­row a line from the Ma­roon 5 ditty, she “move(s) like Jag­ger.”

Guess the ap­ple doesn’t fall far from the tree. She’s the scion of Mick Jag­ger and Jerry Hall – two cul­tural icons who have shaped the mu­sic and fash­ion world as we know to­day.

Few girls can boast of a rock star fa­ther and a su­per­model mother like Ge­or­gia can. Even fewer can say they’ve spent a bet­ter part of their child­hood tour­ing with The Rolling Stones. But Jag­ger and Hall’s youngest daugh­ter is con­vinced that her life only turned “atyp­i­cal” af­ter she started mod­el­ling.

“Sure, I re­mem­ber trav­el­ling to places with The Rolling Stones, but I’ve ac­tu­ally led a pretty nor­mal life. I mean, I lived out­side of Lon­don, in the sub­urbs,” ex­plains Ge­or­gia in-be­tween out­fit changes. “I come from a very big house­hold. I have so many sib­lings. We’re taught to be mind­ful of our sur­round­ings and ap­pre­ci­ate school. My par­ents never al­lowed their fame to get to our heads. I’ve al­ways known they weren’t your av­er­age par­ents on the street. But to me, it’s dif­fer­ent be­cause they’re my fam­ily.”

In be­tween shots, Ge­or­gia hangs over the mon­i­tor screen to study the im­ages and I get a bet­ter chance to study her fea­tures. She has in­her­ited her fa­ther’s sig­na­ture lips and Hall’s mod­e­lesque stature. But a closer look makes it clear that Ge­or­gia brings some­thing unique to the ta­ble. You can’t just rely on your lin­eage and pretty looks to get you this far in the fash­ion in­dus­try – if any­thing, Ge­or­gia and her gap tooth smile has launched a thou­sand cos­metic ranges, not to men­tion count­less bags. In the five years since she started mod­el­ling, Ge­or­gia has walked the run­ways of Chanel, Louis Vuit­ton, and Mu­gler, land­ing cov­eted endorsement and cam­paign gigs with brands the likes of Rim­mel Lon­don, Hud­son Jeans, So­nia Rykiel, and Mul­berry.

She doesn’t brush away pantry talk that her back­ground has helped her catch the right at­ten­tion, though. “Ob­vi­ously, it made peo­ple more in­ter­ested and it opened doors for me. But I don’t think I’d have con­tin­ued to work if these peo­ple hadn’t seen po­ten­tial in me. This is mod­el­ling, af­ter all. You have to be able to sell prod­ucts. I think a lot of peo­ple some­times think that you can sort of buy your way into the in­dus­try, but it’s not that easy.”

Un­sur­pris­ingly, Ge­or­gia speaks with a ma­tu­rity be­yond her age – a worldly qual­ity she’s gained from liv­ing life on the road with The Rolling Stones and grow­ing up in an en­vi­ron­ment where any­one and ev­ery­one from the band’s en­tourage is fam­ily.
