Mick’s daughter Georgia Jagger is model of the year
London fashion world turns out for awards night at the Royal Courts Of Justice
Supermodels and rock stars normally attend the Royal Courts of Justice to sue newspapers for libel or each other for divorce. Last night, they were there for the British Fashion Awards. And no one better exemplified the meeting of rock and fashion than Georgia May Jagger, youngest daughter of Mick Jagger and the Texan supermodel Jerry Hall, who won Model of the Year.
Georgia, 17 (above), could have used an alias when she embarked on her modelling career and you'd still guess her progeny at 20 paces: she has Mick's mouth and her mother's hair and looks. She is already the face of Hudson Jeans, one of the new faces of Rimmel, and a new star for Versace.
To win the award, she saw off stiff competition from two rivals with rock connections - though not, it has to be said, blue-chip rock connections. One was Daisy Lowe, daughter of Bush guitarist Gavin Rossdale and fashion designer Pearl Lowe. The other was Victoria Secret model Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley, one-time girlfriend of Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood's son, Tyrone.
• Christopher Bailey, creative director of Burberry. He won Designer of the Year and Burberry won Brand of the Year. Burberry's return to London from Milan was the high point of London Fashion Week in September, and Bailey delighted last night's crowd by announcing that the label will continue to show its designs on the London catwalk.
• Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue. She won the Isabella Blow Award for fashion creator. The British-born stylist was one of the fashion world's great secrets until this year's documentary, The September Issue, allowed all and sundry to witness her extraordinary input at Vogue, and her mercurial relationship with editor Anna Wintour.
• Kate Moss, model and Topshop designer. She won a newly-created category, London 25, as a result of an online public poll to choose the figure who embodied the creative spirit of the capital and of the British fashion industry.
• John Galliano, creative director of Christian Dior. He received the Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design award for his work at Dior over more than decade.
• Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, designers behind the Peter Pilotto label. The duo won the Swarovski Emerging Talent Award for Ready-to-Wear. Claudia Schiffer, one of a host of supermodels to attend the event, supported them last night by wearing a short red Peter Pilotto dress. ·
