Fashion ICON: Elizabeth Jagger
Elizabeth “Lizzie” Jagger, born March 2, 1984, is the oldest daughter of Mick Jagger and model/actress Jerry Hall.
When Elizabeth was four years old, she attended a Chanel runway show with her supermodel mother. It was this particular fashion show that inspired young Elizabeth to follow in her mother’s high-heeled footsteps. In an interview with The Telegraph, Elizabeth says, “I was blown away by it all. After that, I would go through mum’s cupboards, and it was like having the best kids’ dress-up box ever.”
Thirteen-year-old Elizabeth Jagger was discovered by a modeling agency while shopping in Dolce and Gabbana. At the agency she pointed out a picture of Jerry Hall in a magazine and said “That’s my mother.” It was only then that the modeling scout had realized exactly whom she had just signed. Elizabeth’s first runway appearance was in 1998, modeling for Thierry Mugler alongside her mother.
Elizabeth has since appeared on the covers of Nylon, Amica, and British and Australian Vogue. She has walked runways for powerhouse fashion houses like Emporio Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson, Sass & Bide, and Betsey Johnson.
In 2001, Elizabeth appeared as herself in Being Mick, a documentary about her father. A year later, she appeared in the film Igby Goes Down. Of the LA film culture, Elizabeth told The Telegraph, "I thought that the fashion world could be a bit fake sometimes, but it's nothing compared to Hollywood. Girls would walk over their grandmothers' graves to get a part, and the producers talk about actresses like they're dirt, picking over every part of them so that they end up paranoid and having surgery."
Elizabeth was most recently seen on the cover of Playboy magazine.
