This Friday marks Georgia May Jagger’s 26th birthday, and what better way to celebrate the British model’s special occasion than with a throwback to her most unexpected fashion moment. No stranger to the red carpet, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall’s youngest daughter has been photographed at high-profile fashion events and rock concerts since she was a kid—but it was her appearance as a bridesmaid at her mom’s surprise wedding to 84-year-old billionaire Rupert Murdoch in 2016 that will go down in the strange-but-true history books.
No one saw the union coming. The fact that Hall, a leggy former rock star’s wife and Grace Jones’ old roommate, could marry Murdoch, whose media empire includes Fox News and trashy UK paper The Sun, seemed unfathomable. The pair’s 25-year age difference prompted a few cliche gold-digging questions, but it was their diametrically opposed political leanings that furrowed brows the most. A number of Hall’s inner circle had been subject to a phone hacking scandal that led to the closure of Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid in 2011, and the octogenarian was outspoken in his support of Donald Trump’s campaign.
But on March 4th, 2016—marry they did. A private civil service at Spencer House in London was followed by a star-studded ceremony at Saint Bride’s Church, which lies at the heart of the city’s journalism industry on Fleet Street. Guests on the bride’s side included artist Tracey Emin, the playwright Tom Stoppard, and former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and his wife, Suzanne. Mick Jagger’s first wife, Bianca Jagger, and their daughter Jade were also in attendance. The groom’s guest list was a roll call of political, business, and publishing elite.
Hall picked out an ice-blue Vivienne Westwood dress estimated to have cost just under ,000 dollars to walk down the aisle, and was followed into the hour-long service by the couple’s newly expanded brood. Sons James and Gabriel Jagger and Lachlan and James Murdoch had matching white flower button-holes. Daughters Prudence, Elisabeth, Grace, and Chloe Murdoch and Elizabeth and Georgia May Jagger served as bridesmaids in dresses of varying degrees of blue. Georgia May balanced her relatively demure frock with a pair of blinged-out, crystal-embellished shoes.
A week after the wedding, the bride shared a group portrait from her special day on Twitter. Taken by iconic lensman David Bailey, (who immortalized London in the swinging ‘60s and Hall during her heady Studio 54 days), she captioned the snap “My beautiful family.” The Jagger clan remained unanimously tight-lipped on the shock union until, months later, Georgia May conceded in an interview that her mom was “very happy.”
Murdoch and Hall will celebrate their two-year anniversary this year.END
