What do the Rolling Stones, Grace Jones, Andy Warhol and a zebra-print Louis Vuitton catsuit have in common? Fashion icon Jerry Hall, of course! The legendary muse of photographer Helmut Newton and former wife of rocker Mick Jagger appears in the January issue of Harper’s Bazaar, revealing more than just her mile-long legs. Choice topics include an LSD-induced beauty revelation, musings on Mad Men—”I love the big girl”—and feeling an “electric jolt” the first time she touched her husband. But the most remarkable memories are those of the sartorial persuasion. “I was wearing linen trousers, kind of full, ’30s, and they buttoned at the side,” she recalls of her first interaction with Jagger, over 30 years ago. And though her model daughters Lizzy, 26, and Georgia May, 18, assure her she is now “too old” for mini skirts, they are constantly reminded that mom is the ultimate authority on high fashion. After completing a photo session with Chanel’s Karl Largerfeld, they were both told: “Your mother trained you so well.” To read more about Hall’s glamorous past and to check out vintage family photos, visit harpersbazaar.com. –Justine Harman
