Lizzie Jagger’s unusual upbringing

As the daughter of a Rolling Stone and a Texan supermodel, Lizzie Jagger was never likely to have an ordinary upbringing, says Celia Walden in the London Daily Telegraph. Her dad would sing her lullabies “which he would make up himself, most of the time. Either that or ‘Summertime,’ which I loved.” Jerry Hall, for her part, schooled the couple’s firstborn in her trade almost from infancy, and Jagger decided to follow in Hall’s footsteps while sitting on her mother’s lap at a Chanel show, at age 4. “I was blown away by it all. After that, I would go through Mum’s cupboards, and it was like having the best kid’s dress-up box ever.” Signed by a modeling agency at 13, Jagger moved to New York three years later in hopes of developing her own identity—and found herself fending off offers from Playboy to pose nude. “I didn’t have a problem with topless, [but] I wasn’t willing to do fully naked pictures. You do have to have boundaries.” To make it as a model, her mother always told her, she should “be nice, and don’t show your bum.”
