WHO’S THAT GIRL: Madonna has tapped rock ’n’ roll progeny Georgia May Jagger as the newest face of her Material Girl juniors line, which is going global this summer. Jagger, the 20-year-old daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, will appear in a back-to-school campaign for the brand. The line is carried exclusively at Macy’s in the U.S., The Bay in Canada and is set to launch in Europe and Australia this summer. Material Girl is part of the MG Icon joint venture between Madonna and Iconix Brand Group Inc., which said details on the European and Australian distribution will be available at the end of June.
“To be handpicked by Madonna and Lola as the new face of Material Girl is truly amazing,” said Jagger, in a nod to Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s daughter, who is closely involved in designing and marketing the brand.
