The Original Modeliser: Mick Jagger & His Fabulous Women
In the second episode of Sex and The City, America's fabulous foursome tackled the exquisite art form of men who exclusively date models, or what they referred to as modelisers. Aptly titled 'Models and Mortals ', the script carried punchline after punchline about the glitzy trend that existed long before the episode. But, as Mr. Big watered down Carrie Bradshaw's dual points that it's both a form of sport and validation, he does manage to tell one truth: exceptional beauty in women is undeniable.
It got us thinking, then, about the real-life modelisers who've used the fashion industry as their own personal dating pools. And, as it goes, all signs led to the most immortal of men: the rockstars of the '60s and '70s. Jagger, for short.
After some digging, the trend in the Rolling Stone frontman's love life became too obvious (and stylish) to ignore. From Marianne Faithfull to Anita Pallenberg, Chrissie Shrimpton, and more, Jagger and the women he loved defined the eras that inform most of the current trends of today. Think: white suits, platforms, fringe, fur dusters, and a whole lotta denim. Everyone knows fashion is cyclical, and some style tendencies come and go, but it was these women who, backstage or front-and-centre, ingrained an overarching message in vintage fashion history — the idea that fashion was meant to rock; no rules, no games, and sometimes, no pants.
While being a model today means eons more than what it used to — bearing mention that the modelling rulebook has since been rewritten — the women ahead faced the music in street style numbers that have held places on our vision boards for decades. While the war between models and mortals has long been over (or was just a figment of our subconscious, thanks to SATC), the women ahead prove that personal style is the ultimate weapon.

Emma Watson is never one to shy away from a statement fashion trend, and her latest outing at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is no exception. The "Harry Potter" star hit the front row at the Schiaparelli fall/winter 2022 show wearing a black cropped blazer by the designer. Watson, who has undergone quite the style transformation since her Hermione Granger days, teamed it with a relaxed-fit white shirt layered over a basic white T-shirt.
In January, the Hello singer tearfully announced in a social media video that her residency, which was due to run from January to April at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, was being indefinitely postponed because the show wasn't ready. Discussing her decision on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Adele insisted she doesn't regret calling it off at such short notice. "I definitely felt everyone's disappointment and I was devastated, and I was frightened about letting them down, I thought I could pull it together and make it work and I couldn't, and I stand by that decision.”
