NEW YORK— Give Georgia May Jagger a photo of herself and she’ll find the one little thing wrong with it. In that way, she’s just like most of us. She can spot from a mile away the nervous smile or unflattering pose.

But as she develops her modeling career, the 20-year-old says she’s getting better at accepting these things and, honestly, getting better at her job.

“Even the most successful models, it takes getting used to. Fashion and photos can still be intimidating, even if you’re always around it, but they’re not as much now as my first ones!”

With a little more practice, maybe she’ll be as smooth and graceful as her model mom Jerry Hall, or as comfortable in her own skin as her rock star dad Mick Jagger.

Yes, Georgia May Jagger is no stranger to being around a camera. It’s very much in her blood.

“I ask my mom for advice often. It’s not specifically ‘how to model’ — you have to develop that yourself — but I’ll ask her about fashion. I’ve seen her work before, and we talk about work. She’s obviously very experienced,” Jagger says.

(One of her best beauty tips — to take off all her makeup at night and, on rare occasion, go a day or two with no makeup at all — comes from Hall.)

From her dad, Jagger, who has posed for Chanel and Versace, among others, gets some of her eclectic style, she says, but she’d describe her own look as a little less flashy than his. She has a bit of the old English countryside style in her closet, combined with glam rock touches. Vivienne Westwood is a favorite designer.

A few years ago, she wore a Westwood-designed leopard-print jacket with big puffy sleeves to a big press event. She took that from Hall’s closet.

“I had a moment beforehand when I wondered, ‘Should I wear it?’ My mom is tall and gorgeous and can wear anything, but it worked out in the end for me. I was there to have fun and I did.”

She adds, “A young girl should have fun. I’d say wear whatever you want. Don’t worry about being sensible.”

Cue her new style inspiration: Madonna.

Jagger is the new spokesmodel for Material Girl, the collection designed by Madonna and her daughter Lola. “I do think it represents Madonna’s style when she was younger. Girls my age are still trying to do it. It’s all youthful and fun and carefree style that she’s known for.”

The mix of bustier dresses with a Peter Pan-collar top and supershort bandeau minis are up Jagger’s mix-and-match alley, too. “I like that it’s not sticking to all the regular things.”

Almost surprisingly, Jagger, who lives in London, had never met Madonna until this fashion gig — although Jagger had attended a concert “years and years ago.”

Jagger also remembers going on the road as a kid with the Rolling Stones and seeing much more of the United States than one would think, even seeing touristy sites like the biggest wheel of cheese. She says Austin, Texas, is a favorite place to visit. Her mom was born and raised a Texan, hailing from the Dallas area.

When she’s not working, Jagger says her days are about photography, art and barbecues whenever it’s not raining in England. Those are all things that keep her away from shopping, which she’d do too often if given the chance, she says with a laugh.

“I don’t do shopping as a planned thing with friends. It’s all impulse and by myself. This way there’s no one to talk me out of it.”
