Born in Texas in 1956, Hall began modelling in the Seventies after being spotted by a model scout while sunbathing on a beach in the south of France. Her first high profile shoot was for the cover of Roxy Music’s album Siren in 1975. She also began dating lead singer Bryan Ferry the same year.

At around six-foot tall with natural blonde hair, incredibly long legs and a bone structure to die for, it’s no wonder the teenager’s career soon skyrocketed. Hall appeared on countless magazine covers and was one of the world’s most in-demand models.

In 1977, Hall began dating Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger with whom she had four children: Elizabeth, James, Georgia May and Gabriel. The couple reportedly tied the knot in Bali in 1990, but the marriage was later found not to be legal under British or Indonesian law.

A regular at famous New York nightclub Studio 54, Hall embraced the disco-glam look of the era with sultry eye make-up, perfectly waved hair and her signature bold red lip.

As her personal style evolved, the aspiring actor embraced more tailoring in her wardrobe, sometimes choosing form-fitting suits and at other times more androgynous pieces.

In 2016, Hall married media mogul Rupert Murdoch after around a year of dating. For the spring wedding, the bride chose a pale blue Vivienne Westwood dress with a matching fascinator and silver shoes.

Often appearing alongside grown-up daughters Lizzy and Georgia May – both of whom have followed in their mother’s footsteps with successful modelling careers of their own – Hall is as glamorous as ever, but her style now has a softer, more sophisticated edge compared to her early modelling days.
