The 411: Georgia May Jagger-------
Despite the enviable genes that destined her for runway superstardom, Georgia May Jagger—the youngest daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger—didn’t start modeling until the ripe old age of 17. It didn’t take her long to transcend the ranks of the rag trade, though: Her first year in, Jagger nabbed spreads in British, French, Italian, and RussianVogue, not to mention a slew of campaigns (for Hudson Jeans, Rimmel London, and Paris’ Polo de Deauville), as well as the Model of the Year award from the British Fashion Council. A little turn on Karl Lagerfeld’s 2011 Chanel Resort runway in St. Tropez followed, as did a starring role as the face of the collection’s lookbook. “Miss Jagger is the modern girl. She is the girl of today,” Lagerfeld told British Vogue at the time. A full year later, and it would appear as though Jagger is the girl of tomorrow, too. A fulltime student, the 19-year-old has found time to strike a pose for the September issues of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar, Pop, Vogue Italia and Brazilian Vogue, for which she graces the cover. “I’m either in school or I’m working, so I don’t have a ton of time to do stuff,” Jagger says of maintaining any kind of regular primping rituals. But the lippy blonde who loves Vivienne Westood and Isabel Marant—”Pretty much 50 percent of every collection she does, I want,” she says of Marant—does have a few local beauty breaks she can’t live without. Here, just in time for LFW, the down-to-earth sociology and photography major shares her favorite destinations in Londontown—and this thoughtful beauty tip: “Be confident as yourself and do what works for you, not what works for other people.”
The Makeup Bag Must-Haves: Practice What You Preach
“I always have mascara with me. Rimmel’s new ScandalEyes Mascara is my favorite, because it’s got a massive brush, which means you can just put it on really quickly. I also can’t be without lip gloss or lipstick. I like the Rimmel Vinyl Max Lip Gloss in Breathless, because it’s quite nude-y.”

The All-Natural Multi-Tasker: Egyptian Magic
“My mom is always saying things like, ‘Your body is a temple.’ She’s really on it like that, so I know about natural stuff. I like things like Egyptian Magic. It’s an organic Vaseline, which is quite nice. I use it as a lip balm.”
The Hair Heroes: Jo Hansford
“Once you start modeling and people start messing around with your hair so much, you kind of need to have someone who just knows what to do. I’ve had a few ups and down with my hair, as everyone has, and I kept going to places that I heard were good. But I don’t think you should pick your hairdresser on their status. I love Jo Hansford for color and cuts, even though my new year’s resolution was to not cut my hair.”

The Pond-Hopping Pore Perfector: Tracie Martyn
“I don’t really get a ton of facials, but if I were to indulge, it would be on a Tracie Martyn facial in New York. She’s English. My sister was like, ‘You have to go for one’—and it was just really, really good. You leave glowing.”

The Retail Therapy: Liberty London
“I love department stores like Liberty. It’s not as crowded and stressful as other department stores. You can sit down and have a cup of tea.”

The Treasure Hunting Market: Alfie’s Antiques
“It’s vintage stalls all put together in a big building just off the Edgeware Road. They sell clothes and little handbags and lots of Art Deco furniture and secondhand precious jewelry.”

The Sweet Treat: Hummingbird Bakery
“You have similar things in New York—those places with the cupcakes that are just mad. I get my birthday cake here every year and it’s amazing. I had a vanilla one last year and red velvet the year before.”

The Strand Saver: Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic
“They do all kinds of things to treat the hair and scalp. Their conditioner, the Elasticiser, is great for for hair that’s haggard. I go in for deep-conditioning masks.”

The Perfect Escape: Richmond Park
“It’s near my mum’s house. It’s as big as Hyde Park, but it’s still wild—there are deer you can pet! I like going there with my dogs. It feels like you’re in the countryside but you’re not that far from central London.”
