Elizabeth Jagger’s name has long been bandied about as the newest face of cosmetics giant Lancôme – and now the high-profile signing has been confirmed. The 18-year-old daughter of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall is joining the firm’s impressive spokesmodel roster, which includes Hollywood star Uma Thurman and Spanish beauty Ines Sastre.
And it seems the teenage model’s career is really hotting up – in addition to the £150,000 contract with the make-up company, the “statuesque stunner with daddy’s famous lips” as she’s called in a Lancôme statement, also recently signed another big deal. She’ll be starring in an upcoming campaign for Australian clothing line Jag, receiving $100,000 to appear in catalogues and posters.
“She has a fantastic assocation with fashion and she is really destined to achieve,” says Jag’s general manager Sam Cooper. “She is very sexy, confident, and most importantly she has a degree of individuality... three fantastic qualities for a fashion brand.”
The Jag label is being relaunched in an effort to recapture the glamour it had years ago as a celebrity favourite, with fans including Jackie Onassis, Cher and Raquel Welch.
