Jade Sheena Jezebel Jagger (born 21 October 1971) is an English jewelry designer, socialite and former model.

Early life[edit]

Jagger was born in Paris, France. She is the only child of Bianca (née Pérez-Moreno de Macías), a Nicaraguan model, actress and philanthropist, and Mick Jagger, an English musician and actor. In her early years, Jagger and her family lived on London's fashionable Cheyne Walk in Chelsea. Jagger's parents divorced in 1978 and she spent most of her time living in Manhattan with her jet-set mother and was often dropped off at The Factory to be babysat by her mother's friend, pop artist Andy Warhol. In Manhattan, Jagger attended the Spence School. At 14, she enrolled in the all-girls boarding school in St Mary’s, Calne, England.

When Steve Jobs was visiting Manhattan in January 1984, he was advised by Andy Warhol to give away one of his brand-new Macintosh computers to Jade's father. Mick was "baffled" by the visit and the gift, but teenage Jade showed an immediate interest in drawing with the device's MacPaint, and Jobs gave it to her.[1]

Career[edit]

In 1996, Jade set up Jade Inc. designing jewellery,[2] and in 2001 she began working as the Creative Director for Garrard, the English company dealing in high-end jewelry. She worked there until 2006 and now promotes a lifestyle concept called "Jezebel" (her middle name), which fuses music, clothing, and lifestyle through original recordings, remixes, unplugged sessions, and fashion. She also has worked as a lingerie model.[3]

In 2001, she appeared as herself in the film, chronicling a year in the life of her father, Being Mick.

In 2008, Jade's career was revived, courtesy of Belvedere. Best known in accessory circles for her time as creative director at Garrard, Jade had created the "Jagger Dagger," a sword boasting an 18-carat white gold hilt studded with 12 carats (2.4 g) of brilliant-cut diamonds, 42 pale sapphires, and inlaid with a central blue lapis lazuli square.[4]

In 2009, Jade was featured in an in-depth video clip for Observer Women's Magazine, sharing one of her creations, something she refers to as her "artwork", a "ribbon bracelet" which features some "easily available household things" such as; a "skull and wings", a tiny "palm tree, sort of reminds me of my home in Ibiza", a bunch of safety pins, "funky little bits and bobs", e.g. a little key trinket.[5] She also appeared as herself in one episode of Paris Hilton's British Best Friend.[6]

In 2011 Jade was appointed for the designing of Lodha Group's Fiorenza project in Mumbai's Goregaon suburb, blending India's rich and varied traditions with unique cultural elements from across the world, the development is expected to provide residents with the finest in fashionable living.[7][8]

Personal life[edit]

While preparing for her A-Levels at Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies in 1988, Jade began a relationship with classmate Piers Jackson.[9] She and Piers eventually had two daughters: Assisi Lola Jackson (born 2 July 1992) and Amba Isis Jackson (born 26 May 1996). In 2004, Jagger began dating DJ Pharell Williams. There were reports that they married in February 2009 but she has denied this.[10] They separated in 2010. She married graphic designer/art director Adrian Fillary at Aynhoe Park, Banbury, Oxfordshire, on 30 June 2012[11] She became a grandmother in May 2014 after her daughter Assisi gave birth to a baby girl, Ezra Key. In February 2014 she also announced she was six months pregnant herself, expecting her third child in May/June 2014. Her son Ray Emmanuel Fillary was born on June 13, 2014.[12]
