Georgia May Jagger put education before fashion

Georgia May Jagger was "rebellious" during the early days of her career, as she put education first.

The 24-year-old model has soared to fame in the fashion industry thanks to jobs for the likes of Rimmel, Vivienne Westwood and Chanel. Her mother is former model Jerry Hall, though that didn't mean Georgia had anticipated following in her footsteps.

"I was always not very into the concept at all," she admitted to WWD. "Even when I started modelling, I think I was a little bit rebellious in the way that I was like, I don’t care, I’m doing school - I always put education first.

"I do photography, but I’m not like, putting a rush on that. I want to do it in a different way from my modelling - more, I suppose, artistic photography. It’s like more people, less clothes."

Georgia did pick up some valuable beauty tips from her glamorous mum though, such as wearing black lip liner, which she still does today.

She's open to trying new trends too and is keen on driving innovative ideas, revealing she and a close hair expert friend are planning to go into business together with hair brand Bleach.

"They can do anything to your hair - my brother had blue leopard-print hair," she gushed. "And they make their own dyes. It’s not the modelling because I have hair contracts, so it’s only the business I am involved in. They’re interested in my opinions, not in my image. I’m more of a silent partner."

The blonde star is also collaborating with surf, skate and snowboard apparel brand Volcom, who are currently turning fishing nets from the sea into bikinis. Being an advocate for looking after the environment, Georgia notes this venture is a "perfect" mix of fashion and recycling.

"I think there are a lot more things we could be doing in fashion like that, and I think it’s worth doing," she added.
