Georgia May Jagger has grown up in the spotlight. As the youngest daughter of Rock legend Sir Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall, the gapped toothed beauty has carved her own career as a successful international model. The 21-year-old was in Australia with her mother Jerry and I caught up with her to talk about her career highlight, travelling with her mum, and the best advise her parents have given her.
Is having a famous last name was a help or a hindrance in carving your own career?
I think its both, it’s a help because for obvious reasons, you are more well known but it’s also a hindrance because people think you haven’t created any of your own career, that sort of thing.
What is an average day for you?
Usually changes quite a lot, depending on what I am doing, I’m either travelling and working really early, like today I woke up at 4am and I had a photo shoot and events but sometimes I’m just at home in my pajamas and just relaxing, so it’s whether I’m working or not pretty much.
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job I think is getting to travel and meet incredible people, I love that.
What is the worst part of your job?
The worst is not having very much sleep and having to stand for very long periods of time in very awkward positions [laughs].
Does you mother get to accompany you on many media commitments or is this a one-off?
No, we don’t get to travel much together for fun, sometimes we do things together for work but this is a one-off. It’s nice to do things with her.
What has been your career highlight so far?
One would be my cover of British Vogue when I first started modeling and my incredible Rimmle Contract, I been with them for four years now and the London Olympics as well.
Tell me about what did you do with the London Olympics.
I walked in the closing ceremony as part of Britain’s Fashion Hall of Fame [along with fellow models including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lily Donaldson].
Who is your style icon?
My mum obviously, she is the ultimate glamour icon!
What is the best beauty tip you have received from your mother?
She always says it’s about confidence and to have fun and smile. She is not really the “less is more”[type] so she always says “more and more”!
What is your beauty routine for a night out?
It changes, depending on how I feel; I think you always have to have fun with fashion and with your makeup. For me, it’s either lipstick – red or pink is my favourite – or mascara.
What are you doing while you are in Australia?
I have been to Australia many times and absolutely love it but I’m only here for two days this time so I didn’t really get a chance to do much. I’m just here in Sydney as the ambassador for 30 Days of Fashion & Beauty as my main kind of thing. But I did get to catch up and have dinner last night with [designer] Camilla Franks who I did her show [during Australian Fashion Week] that was really fun.
What are your favourite things to do for fun in Australia?
Last time I went to Hamilton Island and that was pretty amazing, and I did a helicopter ride over the Great Barrier Reef, that was pretty cool.
What are your favourite restaurants in Australia?
I love Ms G’s; Mr Wong is fab and I also really like Porteno.
What are your favourite Australian fashion labels?
My favourite labels include Willow, Rachel Gilbert, Sass & Bide, By Johnny, Zimmermann and Camilla.
What is next in the pipeline?
After Australia, I’m going to New York for a [photo] shoot and then back to London for work and then straight back to New York for Fashion Week.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
That’s a hard question, I really don’t know, I hopefully will still be modelling, and I would like to be doing photography or something like that.
What is the best advice your parents have given you?
I think to do what makes you feel happy because that is when you feel your best and you are the most confident.
