Like mother, like daughter: While Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger offspring Georgia May is making headlines with her topless ad campaign for Hudson Jeans, Hall is getting ready to bare it all onstage. “Nudity is always terrifying, even now,” the 53-year-old admits.

Meet Georgia May: The youngest of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall’s progeny is the new face of Hudson Jeans, the only company that seems to have any money these days. And, as if one insanely famous name weren’t enough, the ads were shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Camilla Nickerson. See what we mean about the money? [WWD]
The Cougar premieres on TV Land tomorrow, but I’ll be watching the calendar pages instead in anticipation of the U.S. release of Stephen Frears’ Chéri, based on the 1920 novel by Colette (the famous French writer, not the store). The film, which had its Paris debut last week, stars Michelle Pfeiffer as Léa, a courtesan having an affair with a much younger man, Chéri, played by the pale, mop-headed, and altogether irresistible Rupert Friend, and the stills promise romantic turn-of-the-century costumes and lavish interiors to get lost in. Perhaps Chéri was the subconscious inspiration for bibliophile Karl Lagerfeld’s Spring accessories lookbook for Chanel—featuring Jerry Hall and Baptiste Giabiconi. Be that the case or not, older woman/younger man romances seem to be hotter than Balmain jackets.
Now on view at the Society of Illustrators, in association with the Leslie/Lohman Gay Arts Foundation, The Line of Fashion pays tribute to some of the most venerable names in illustration, including Antonio Lopez (more on him in our Jerry Hall piece), Kenneth Paul Block, and René Bouché. Spanning nearly a century of work, the group exhibition focuses primarily on the medium’s heyday—the fifties, sixties, and seventies—a fact not lost on participant Michael Vollbracht. “It’s still necessary to promote fashion illustration,” the ex-Bill Blass designer explained at Friday evening’s launch. “It is a dying art, I’m sorry to say.” While photography may have supplanted drawing in print adverts and fashion spreads, fiscally speaking at least, Vollbracht thinks it might be in a couple of his former employers’ best interests to revert back to the old model. “I’m very surprised that with the terrible downturn of the economy more stores like Bendel’s and Bloomingdale’s and Saks don’t use fashion illustrators,” he said. “If you have no money to pay that model and no money to pay Steven Meisel…”
