Style Icons: Bianca Jagger

Michelle Persad, Fashion Editor, Huffington Post reported: ‘if you look up the definition of “style icon”, we think there should be a photo of Bianca Jagger next to the term.”

I so agree.

I checked out her style evolution online, just to see, one more time, that white wedding suit she wore when she and Mick married. A white fitted jacket, notch collar over a long white a line skirt, and the hat! A stunning wide brimmed picture hat with flowing veil attached – ‘The Lady in White’.

Married in 1971, the Nicaragua-born beauty became one of the top style-setters of her day. I remember another hat she wore in the early 70’s; and was thrilled to see a close up of her wearing the black fitted cloche with a black veil to her chin and the highlight: a stack of snow white feathers attached to the crown and sweeping down almost to her shoulder.

“Bianca remained a notable style icon for decades to come (her effect on the 70’s couture scene has remnants in today’s market.” The Rake ‘Icons’.

For more of my thoughts on current and past style icons check out my book "High Fashion, High Adventure" available now on Amazon!
