Georgia May Jagger’s Happy Medium
“So many of my friends are models and are super-thin,” said Georgia May Jagger at the after party for her latest stint as designer for Hudson Jeans. “And even with them, there is always a bit of muffin top when they wear low-rise jeans. It’s just the nature of low rise.” She added with that famous toothy grin: “They squeeze whatever there is, whether it is fat, or just skin.”
It’s the private dinner following the launch of her jean line for Ben Taverniti’s Hudson at Selfridges, and she and her closest friends and family—including mom Jerry, brother James, friends Cara Delavigne and Mary Charteris—are relaxing at the Club at the Ivy, the private members’ bit of the famous Ivy restaurant. They are doing what rock people do best, dancing and partying, while GMJ lets us in on her design take on jeans: “I looked to my mom’s style as a starting point and decided early on to do a mid rise.” She herself was modeling the Ayesha cut; mom Jerry wore the Jerry jean. “Mid rise is such a perfect compromise, because I personally find both high and low can be uncomfortable. Mid rise holds you in properly, and look cleaner—all you have to do is look at pictures of my mom in the seventies to see what I mean.”
Speaking of pictures, that’s her next project: photography. She’s currently studying at New York’s School of Visual Arts, and was quick to demonstrate: She grabbed our camera for the impromptu self-portrait above. Pretty good, we’d have to admit. But could anyone, even an amateur, take a bad picture of that face?
