Georgia May Jagger nominated for Model Of The Year
I thought this was worth a mention as Georgia May Jagger recently took her stand as a model for her mum and dads Hudson Jeans brand. She blew us away with her daring photos to promote the new line while she is only 17 years old. Since Hudson is featured on DenimBlog often and being a fan of the brand, do you think she will take home the award? Daisy Lowe is also another superstar who we have featured on DenimBlog, she could be the next winner as well. Who do you think will win? Below is a snippet of the article from The Telegraph.
The British Fashion Council has released the shortlist of nominees for the British Fashion ‘Oscars’, which will be announced at a celebrity-packed gala event, at the Royal Courts of Justice, in The Strand, London, on December 9th, an evening which will also bring the 25th anniversary celebrations of London Fashion Week to a close.
The event recognises the most influential movers and shakers in fashion today. Of the eleven categories at the 2009 awards, the ultimate accolade is undoubtedly the title ‘Designer of the Year’, which, ironically, was won last year by Luella Bartley, who has since ceased trading. John Galliano and Alexander McQueen have both won the title several times, and other previous winners represent a roll-call of the most well-known British designers in the world, including Hussein Chalayan, Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson and Stella McCartney. The winner of this year’s title will be revealed on awards night.
This year, there will be a one-off London 25 Award decided by public vote, to celebrate an individual who embodies the spirit of London and is an international ambassador for the capital’s fashion industry.
The night will also acknowledge the achievement of one designer who, throughout their career, has made an exceptional impact on global fashion, with the BFC Award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design.
Three of the country’s hottest young models will battle it out for the title of ‘Model of the Year’, previously won by the likes of Jourdan Dunn, Agyness Deyn, Karen Elson, Lily Cole, Erin O’Connor and Kate Moss.
The 2009 contenders are Georgia Jagger, 17, youngest daughter of Sir Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, who is the ‘face’ of Hudson Jeans, one of the new ‘faces’ of Rimmel, and a new ‘star’ for Versace; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, 22, one of the Victoria’s Secret’s “Angels” and a former ‘face’ of Burberry; and Daisy Lowe, who has an international modelling career, and is the daughter of Pearl Lowe, who recently launched her first clothing collection, and Gavin Rossdale, frontman of the band, Bush.
