>> Hedi Slimanefirst met Georgia May Jagger at Fourchette, her father Mick Jagger's French residence in 2007, where he photographed her. The two have reteamed for Harper's Bazaar's November 2010 issue, for which Slimane filmed and photographed Georgia in New York — where she recently moved — in September. Slimane set the film (above) to a soundtrack from British band Egyptian Hip Hop, because he "want[s] more people to be aware of their music" and because "the band is precisely Georgia's age, and generation." The film, according to Slimane, is "meant to also be evocative of the glamorous heritage of Georgia M. Jagger, [and her parents] Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall['s] legacy."
Slimane captures Georgia topless — not something new for the model, who has more than a few discreetly topless ads for Hudson Jeans floating around. She says her parents don't mind. "My mum did a lot of very provocative work with Helmut Newton. She understands. It is pretty crazy, though. I didn't think that it was going to be on giant billboards everywhere. I'm sort of like, Oh, God!"
She likes modeling jeans, though: "When Mum was first modeling, it was all about that Thierry Mugler woman with the tiny waist and the giant ass. They used to pad their hips. I think it's much sexier. Lizzy [Jagger, her sister] and my dad are naturally skinny. I model jeans. You need a bum for those."
But despite the leniency when it comes to toplessness, Jagger says of Hall: "My mum is actually really wholesome. She remembers everything because she didn't take drugs like everyone else. She'll see a black-and-white picture taken 40 years ago and say, ‘I was wearing a red dress and gold eye shadow.' It's incredible." Also: "My mum hasn't been to New York for so long, but she used to live there in the '80s. So when she found out I was moving to Alphabet City, she freaked out."
And as for her father, Mick: "My dad's not a very intimidating father figure." Georgia has been dating Django James Stewart, the musician son of Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, for the last two years. "Our parents know each other," she adds. "My dad's cool with that kind of stuff."

Traina moved into the apartment, which is scattered with relics, fur pillows, and a giant taxidermic zebra, which her father sent to her when she moved in — in early 2008.

>> Zoe Saldana, who was named the Fall 2010 Calvin Klein Underwear face in July and is a longtime devotee of the brand, was recently asked with whom she would most like to co-design a dress or line. Her reply? Not Francisco Costa. "Prabal Gurung has been a very good friend for many years. I am in awe of the way he has carried himself and his designs recently. It would be amazing to collaborate with him." [MyFDB.com]
The trench coat is a veritable closet staple, but this Fall, the classic piece has inspired designers to reformulate the look. Our favorite four reinterpretations include a flint-hued shrunken suede version from Madewell; Bailey 44's tailored black sleeveless top; 3.1 Phillip Lim's moto jacket — with trench sleeves peeking out; and a sweet sleeveless dress silhouette from Fulton.
>> Last night, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld held his latest art showcase — new works by painter Nicolas Pol, who he's worked with in the past — as part of the Frieze Art Fair in London, with girlfriend Giovanna Battaglia and mother Carine Roitfeld there for support.
>> Last night, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld held his latest art showcase — new works by painter Nicolas Pol, who he's worked with in the past — as part of the Frieze Art Fair in London, with girlfriend Giovanna Battaglia and mother Carine Roitfeld there for support. Restoin Roitfeld champions young artists through his private dealership Feedback Ltd (named after a French radio program). "I don’t think, especially when you start in the business, you need 20 artists," he tells Nowness, "but two to three people you really believe in [where you can] have a relationship that will last for a little bit." He also has been known to partner up with major luxury brands like Giorgio Armani to hold his roving shows: "I don’t see why it is so bad for an artist to do something with such a credible person as Mr. Armani or a brand like Vuitton or Prada, or Miuccia herself. I don’t think it’s good to only do exhibitions and collaborations with fashion names, but I don’t see how it hurts the artist to do suddenly a huge show in Milan and New York with Armani, which had thousands of people coming and was all over the press. If the art is good and this element doesn’t take too much away from the creative side, then it doesn’t hurt." The strategy seems to be working: last night's art show — see some of the works here — reportedly sold out. [Nowness]
>> Rumors popped up in late August that Kate Moss and Jamie Hince had quietly gotten hitched — after the two were spotted wearing what appeared to be wedding rings during a two-week vacation in Italy.
This morning, the Daily Mirror reported that Hince and Moss were married on Aug. 7, in Sicily at a small church — Kate supposedly wore a see-through white dress and went barefoot at the intimate ceremony, with Hince in a dark suit and Moss's daughter Lila Grace Hack serving as ring-bearer. Apparently only a handful of guests were invited, and a "friend" is cited saying: "The plans were kept very quiet as Kate wanted the day to be low key and purely a celebration of their love. She’s never been one for convention or tradition, but Jamie’s been there for her through thick and thin, and she simply felt the time was right. They planned the day for weeks and were so excited. Kate didn’t want a stuffy, formal do, but something spiritual. Minutes after tying the knot, the giggling newlyweds were outside the church, dancing under trees. It was an incredibly happy day."
The couple were spotted wearing the same rings as recently as yesterday, but camp Moss is still denying that she has gotten married. One of the model's staff told the Daily MailMoss is "definitely not married. Any implication she is . . . is factually incorrect." And Moss's agent denied the marriage rumors to Vogue UK.
