In a discotheque at dawn…

OR: Models and Music #4,327

Hey All,

I have to immediately point out (for fear of being told off), the title of this post must be solely credited to Bryan Ferry. The words are lyrics from a song on his new album, Olympia. As much as I love Roxy Music and therefore Mr. Ferry himself, he doesn’t half do great album covers. This latest one;

Yeah, Kate Moss looking divine.

That could’ve been all, but I thought I’d post a few more model-on-album-cover pictures.

Bizarre? yes. Included here, purely because of the Vespa? Yes.

Jagger turns 18 Today.

Georgia May Jagger naturally. As a little ode to her coming of age I’m posting a couple of pics from her SS10 Versace ad campaign. I must admit, I was surprised to hear that Sir Mick’s daughter was only born in , gasp, 1992…. Oh good Lord I’m old!  Even so, 2009 was a huge year for her, (see below) the end of the year even saw her awarded the B.F.C. Model of the year accolade.

Anyway, to make matters even harder for us mere regular type people to deal with – because being 18; having an utterly down-to-earth supermodel-type mother in Jerry Hall and a rock GOD for a father; getting a UK Vogue cover; and nabbing campaigns for Rimmel and Hudson Jeans, just isn’t enough- she looks absolutely H-amazing in these Versace SS10 Ads. Though the bags, on the main part, (the purple aligaitor esp.) entice me, the dresses, colours, prints and cuts make me desperate to have every one. (This yellow one looked incredible on the catwalk). I think Georgia May has definitely been styled to look a bit, Brigitte Bardot but pulls it off in a completely contemporary way. So, enjoy, if you will… enviously or otherwise.

Jerry Hall is Going Off the Rails

RTÉ’s flagship fashion show, Off the Rails, is going live at the RDS this weekend with Total Experience. This year’s event is kicking off with an awards ceremony to celebrate the best of Irish fashion.The 8 award categories include: Best Fashion Stylist, Fashion Photographer, Hair Stylist, Make Up Artist and Best Dressed Male and Female Personalities. But it is the awards for Best Fashion Designer that is the most coveted. The 5 finalists are Irish based designers John Rocha and Joanne Hynes, Tipperary native and knitwear designer Tim Ryan, Donegal handbag designer, Pauric Sweeney and Northern Irish Sharon Wauchob. The winner will be presented with the awards by the timelessly glamorous Jerry Hall.

EDIT: Jerry hall will now not be attending the awards ceremony due to exhaustion from her stage performance of Calendar Girls. Jodie Kidd will now present the Best Designer Award.

Jerry Hall is a legendary model and the epitome of glamour; from her days of hanging out at Studio 54 with Warhol and Blondie to her lead singer lovers like Bryan Ferry and Sir Mick Jagger. Proving that she truly is a remarkable model, she became the face of Chanel accessories SS09 at the age of 52. The images are incredible… what 2.55 bag?

Now her daughter, Georgia May Jagger is hitting the same dizzying heights that Jerry attained. Her campaign for Hudson Jeans shows just what a beauty she is and she got her first UK Vogue cover for the October issue.

Super Model, Super Influence

With the Metropolitan Museum, New York’s latest exhibition, Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion it brings to our attention that models have been influencing fashion for decades. We are so preoccupied with Kate Moss inspiring the fashion of the moment that we could easily believe that it is a new phenomenon. But just as Hollywood actresses have for decades inspired fashion and trends so too have models.

Think Jean Shrimpton’s controversial appearance at the Melbourne Cup in Australia, 1965 which caused the universal acceptance of the Mini skirt. Or Twiggy in the mid 60’s, as the face of ’66. Her stick-thin frame and amazing eye make up influenced the way young women not only dressed but also the way the desired their physique to be.

On then to the 70’s with the rise of the glamazonian model, Jerry Hall and Grace Jones inspired women to seek the luxuries in life. Gerry herself was discovered on a beach in St. Tropez and by the end of the decade was a regularly seen on the arm of Mick Jagger in swish haunts such as Studio 54. She also starred in the music video for her then fiancé, Brian Ferry’s hit Let’s Stick Together.

The 80’s and 90’s gave us the Supermodel, in a class of their own these beautiful women inspired all of us to be chic, classy and as near damn perfect as possible. If women weren’t influenced by their look then, Linda Evangelista’s iconic statement “we don’t wake up for less the $10K a day” would certainly have echoed in the yuppy ears of the high earners of the decade.

The big six, Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and *, were the embodiment of money, success and sexual power. We all wanted to be like them.

*(The jury is still out on the 6th, Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, Tatjana Patitz, Helena Christiansen? you decide).

Personally this Peter Lindbergh image, screams the decade to me with our favourite blonde super’ possibly on her holidays?

But this amazing Herb Rittz is just as convincing even with the absence of Linda and Claudia.
