We knew a good thing when we saw it. Georgia May Jagger, just seventeen– possessing perhaps the prettiest pout of the Jerry Hall/Mick Jagger clan and the face of Hudson Jeans– was named “Model of the Year” last night at the British Fashion Awards. Held at London’s Court of Justice, this year proved especially auspicious since it marked twenty-five years of London fashion shows. While Kate Moss was picked by the English public as “fashion ambassador” for London, the majority panel of 500 official judges weighed in to cast Georgia May as top model. Jonathan Rys Meyers gave Georgia the award.
Georgia’s a natural beauty. When a reporter once asked her about her father Mick and makeup, she recalled photos of dear old dad in blue eye shadow. Seeing her in lipstick at age twelve, he asked. “Are you wearing makeup?” She said, “You’re wearing more makeup than I am!” As for the gap in her front teeth, she’s a saucy lass. “Ha! I think it adds character,” she says. So do we, Georgia, and so does all of the UK, darling. CONGRATULATIONS
