Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall Meet at Rolling Stones Concert, Both in Relationships with Other People
Hall, a statuesque Texan who posed for photographer Helmut Newton in mid-'70s Paris, met Jagger after attending a May 1976 Stones concert with then fiancé Bryan Ferry.
Mick's legendary libido struck a nerve with Hall. In her 1985 autobiography, Jerry Hall's Tall Tales, she wrote: ''We all got in the limousine.... He pressed his knee next to mine and I could feel the electricity.'' They met again in 1977 at (where else?) Studio 54, the disco emporium where Bianca often held court. Theirs became one of the jet set's most famous romances, and though Mick's carousing continued, his magnetism kept him in Hall's good graces throughout the '80s.
[Hall's] trademark long blonde hair and height of six feet quickly made her one of the most visible and photographed models in the industry during that period. That same year, she met Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger at a dinner party in Manhattan, for whom she would eventually leave Bryan Ferry. Hall and Jagger were seen together constantly around New York, frequenting trendy nightspots such as Studio 54 and 21 Club. The Rolling Stones song "Miss You" was written by Jagger for Hall (many years later, Hall was also the subject of the Bryan Ferry song "Kiss and Tell" following the publishing of her 1985 autobiographical exposé Tall Tales that included details of their relationship). Jagger's wife, Bianca Jagger, began divorce proceedings as a result of her husband's involvement with Hall. With the large fees she commanded daily as a top model, Hall was able to buy herself a 200-acre (0.81 km2) ranch in Lone Oak, Texas. On March 2, 1984 in New York City, she gave birth to a daughter, Elizabeth Scarlett, the first of the four children she would have with Jagger. She continued her high-profile modelling career and later moved into acting and television work.
