Georgia May Jagger Loves Her Gap Teeth Because They Are “Real”

Georgia May Jagger

Georgia May Jagger, the 21 year old British model daughter of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and Supermodel Jerry Hall is one of the most recognizable faces in fashion, having fronted campaigns and Magazine covers for Macy’s, Vogue, Grazia, H&M, Vivienne Westwood, Roberto Cavalli, Harpers Bazaar, Louis Vuitton just to name a handful.

She is known for her supermodel chiseled looks inherited from both her famous parents, but it is her unique physical trait that allows her to stand out. She has a noticeable gap tooth which she never chose to “fix” with braces as a kid on purpose because she didn’t want them to be perfect.

Georgia May was interviewed by online fashion bible net-a-porter and opened up about many things including why she thinks its important not to conform to the way others’ think she should look like, least of all the fashion industry.

Jagger shuns at being called the “S” word (supermodel) as she feels it is only worthy of those who have something to say. She thinks everyone has a personality and has something valuable to say, and the well-known names of the 90s (Cindy, Linda, Naomi, Tyra, Christy) were labeled as Supermodels because they didn’t just hide behind their clothes but took the time to display their personalities wherever possible.

Net a porter points out that in the age of social and digital media, authenticity is a necessity. Celebrities can’t afford to just fake it anymore, because fans have instant access to their daily lives, photographs, videos etc and want to hear from them personally.

“There have been some interesting debates about my teeth on Instagram,” says Jagger.

“There’s this whole idea of perfection [in modeling]. What younger girls don’t realize is that these girls do have problems. It’s good for people to realize everyone is human. I still worry I’m going to look weird as I get older. I’ll be a weird old woman with scary teeth,” she laughs.

During the shoot, designer Katie Grand tells Net-a-Porter that part of Georgia May Jagger’s appeal is that she doesn’t take herself too seriously yet understands the delicate balance of the business side of what she is doing in her career. A looks-based industry isn’t necessarily something that lasts forever, and while we shouldn’t scoff at those who do make a living from being a clothes horse, we will always be an advocate of those who use their voices to speak up for confidence, self-esteem and not being afraid of flaws.

It’s unfortunate that our society is obsessed with perfect bodies and seemingly perfect-looking celebrities, which, when you get a closer look at are rather flawed or filled with botox. We as women of the 21st century are desperate to seek out more and more people who are advocates or flaws, real women, unique traits and individuality.

There should be more models who are flaunting their imperfections. There should be more “moves like Jagger” in our opinion!

  1. I agree with her! I myself am fourteen and have a small gap in my teeth, plus they are on the larger side like Georgia’s, and although my teeth make me self conscious at times, I have been brought up to go against the grain, not conform and to reject other people’s idea of perfection. I will not get my teeth fixed, I will be proud of them and embrace this unique and characteristic feature.

  2. But in reality if she did not have super star parents she wouldn’t have a super star contract with Rimmel…just saying…
