In the Air with Georgia May Jagger


Georgia May Jagger has graced the covers of glossy magazines and lent her rock-star looks and supermodel swagger to some of the world’s great fashion houses – becoming a frequent flyer in between. In Sydney to fulfil ambassador duties for German jewellery brand Thomas Sabo, the British fashion royal talks must-have travel accessories, jet lag and what she loves about the Harbour City.

What are your favourite pieces of jewellery to take on a trip?

I would say rings, because I like stacking all of them together. I’m also really into earrings; I’ve just bought a few more. 

What have you been doing so far in Australia?

I saw fashion designer Camilla [Franks], who I’ve become friends with over the years of coming to Australia and walking in her shows. We had dinner together at a seafood restaurant in Bondi. One of my friends is here with me so I’m getting to show her around Sydney. I’ve been here before and it’s nice to show someone around – you don’t feel like such a tourist.

What’s your favourite spot in Sydney?

Probably the beach. I did a boat ride on the harbour at sunset and that was amazing! The Sydney views don’t get old, to be honest. It doesn’t seem real here. When you take photos, it’s like you’re standing in front of a green screen. I love it here. 

Which items will you not go on a trip without?

I always bring my camera and film – and my computer, too, because I like to watch [TV] shows when I’m flying. At the moment I’m watching Scandal and I just finished The Walking Dead on Netflix.

Do you have a secret for travelling light?

No! [Laughs]

What’s in your inflight beauty bag?

Make-up remover and lots of moisturiser to keep my skin hydrated. I always have something in case I’m really tired on the other end, like Shu Uemura’s under-eye patches. 

What’s the secret to a stress-free journey?

I think just putting on a funny movie and trying to prepare yourself before the flight. I always try to drink a lot of water. It’s nice being on the plane with a friend, to be honest, because I’m always on the plane by myself. It’s more fun to travel with another person. 

Any tips for jet lag?

I try to get on the [destination’s] time zone. I’ll try to stay up late or go to bed early – whatever it is – a few days before take-off. I only learnt that recently. The first few times I came to Australia, it took me like three days to adjust. But on this trip, it was quite easy.

What’s your all-time favourite place and what was so great about it?

I just recently went to Angkor in Cambodia. I’d never really been to Southeast Asia – it was really amazing because it was so foreign to anything I’d ever seen before!
