Suits Like Jagger: Wedding Muse Bianca Jagger

Charlie Watts, Mick Jagger and his girlfriend Bianca De Macias arrive at Coventry Theatre 6th March 1971.jpeg

In 1971 despite being on the run to evade tax fraud, The Rolling Stones' Mick jagger made a nod to domesticity and married his girlfriend Bianca Perez-Mora Macias.

The wedding was the culmination of a whirlwind romance that Bianca later quoted "ended on her wedding day". 

Despite the inherent romantic tragedy it would become, Mick and Bianca emulated everything cool about 70s celebrity And here I am, decades later still utterly obsessed with her style and that bloody amazing white two piece suit she wore on her wedding day. 

This post is dedicated to nothing more than good old-fashioned paparazzi - jagger style

Money Shot

French law denoted the ceremony be a public affair so they wed in front of more than 100 paparazzi who caught wind of the happenings and fancied their chance at the money shot.

Bianca & Warhol

Andy Warhol fell in love with Bianca, and she was always at his side, dancing the night away at Studio 54 with or without Mick.  Warhol once called her the most famous movie star who never made a movie

“Heading to St. Tropez to marry your Nicaraguan-born girlfriend, who you met at an after-party in Paris nine months previously, while on the run from the British tax authorities… Even if you’re the front man of The Rolling Stones in the early 70s, it doesn’t really get much cooler than that. ”
