Bianca Jagger

What's the story on her?

I was reading through an article and ran across her name. Had no clue who she was, so I googled her.

Omg, this woman looks so mean! Like she's always scowling, and she looks like she would bite your head off if you ever said the wrong thing to her.

I think that the term "resting bitch face" was invented for this woman.

What in the hell did Mick Jagger ever see in her?

Mick Jagger's 1971 wedding was 'skin-crawlingly embarrassing'

The year 1971 had already been a hectic one for the Rolling Stones. In March, at lead singer Mick Jagger’s urging, they became the first rock band to declare themselves tax exiles from the UK, relocating to France in order to escape England’s high tax rates on the wealthy.

With the band scattering throughout France on April 1, the beginning of the British tax year, the French-speaking Jagger landed in Biot, a “picturesque hilltop town.” It was a sensible move for him because his girlfriend, Bianca Perez-Mora Macias, lived in Paris, and the couple were to be married in May.

The high-class wedding, writes journalist David Hepworth, “marked the establishment of rock and roll as a viable branch of high society.”

Jagger chartered a plane to fly 75 friends who only learned of the wedding the day before, including Paul McCartney and his family, Ringo Starr, Peter Frampton and Ronnie Wood (who wouldn’t join the Stones for another four years), from the UK to Saint-Tropez.

As McCartney and Starr were embroiled in a harsh legal battle, they were seated far apart.

Jagger and his beloved faced their first major obstacle the morning of the wedding, when Bianca discovered that according to French law, the couple had to make clear “what property they held in common.”

It was only then that she learned “how little this was” and “threatened to call it off, facing Jagger with the prospect of the most humiliating reversal in front of his peers. She eventually relented.”

Obstacle number two also came courtesy of French law, which declared that before the church ceremony — which Jagger had choreographed with the pastor — there had to be a civil ceremony at the town hall, which was open to the public.

Jagger had been hoping to keep the paparazzi at bay, but even the town’s mayor couldn’t override the law or refuse entry to the hundreds of photographers who had flown in with no idea of their good fortune. “When the bride and groom eventually arrived, late and already perspiring, pushing their way as best they could through the crowds of pressmen, holiday makers and rubberneckers,” Hepworth writes, “they appeared harassed and faintly shocked.”

As camera flashes just feet away from the couple dominated the ceremony, Jagger’s parents, “for whom he was always ‘Mike,’ stood in the middle of this mayhem, looking unsurprisingly like people who were watching their son disappear into a mad new world. Their place at their son’s right-hand side had been usurped by Atlantic Records head Ahmet Ertegun. He was the daddy now.”

Once the ceremony moved to the church, the Stones’ public-relations person, Les Perrin, who found himself responsible for this madness, had the priest lock the church doors. This led to the unfortunate instance of Jagger having to bang on the door like a commoner for entrance, in full view of the photographers.

At the reception, stars like Julie Christie and Brigitte Bardot danced the Frug to the sounds of an all-star jam that included Stephen Stills, Terry Reid, and members of Santana, to name a few. Keith Richards would have joined, but he was “passed out flat on his back with his mouth open.” (One attendee would later swear to the author that Richards wore a Nazi uniform to the ceremony.)

Meanwhile, Jagger’s ex, Marianne Faithfull, celebrated the marriage in her own special way — by “sleeping off the effects of a shot of Valium and three vodka martinis” she took “to deal with the fact that Mick was marrying someone else,” in a cell at the police station in the Paddington Green section of London. Years later, in her memoir, she noted the physical resemblance between Bianca and Mick, calling it narcissism and writing, “Mick married himself.”

In recounting the nuptials, the event was found to have been so chaotic that “three men — Richards, saxophonist Bobby Keys and [film director] Roger Vadim — all claimed to have been best man.” Even the bride became confused about the facts. She later claimed to some that Who drummer Keith Moon “invaded” the hotel room she shared with Mick. The author discovered that Moon was en route to a show with his band at the time.

The Jagger wedding was the shabbiest free-for-all in the history of both rock and marriage and skin-crawlingly embarrassing for all the key participants,” writes Hepworth.

The most dejected participant might well have been Jagger’s father, Joe, who “looked and felt like a stranger at his eldest son’s biggest day.” Throughout two separate vows and the ceremony, he never had a chance to present his son and new daughter-in-law with his gift, which left the event with him.

Speaking to a reporter afterward, his take on the day was summed up with, “I hope my other son doesn’t become a superstar.”

It's worth reading "The Andy Warhol Diaries" just for Warhol's random bitchiness about her. For some reason he is just obsessed with telling nasty stories about her, from how she answers the phone ("Hellooooooo... Euromumble..." ) to how she allegedly raised Jade as a baby (without diapers, because she just couldn't be bothered to deal with them). It's as if she's Warhol's bitchiness muse.

She became a serious human rights activist and got really tired of being so synonymous with the legend of Studio 54.

Quote from Bianca in an article Bob Collacello wrote for Vanity Fair in 2013:

“I would rather die than talk about Studio 54,” Bianca Jagger told me when I approached her about this story. “I wish it never existed.”

I’d like to go back to the 70s and show Bianca OP’s comment. She’d be very cross, at least about the not knowing who she is

by Anonymousreply 2706/28/2020

She got a relatively small divorce settlement from Mick Jagger , $1 million in 1979. She chased after a few rich guys after that, including trying to marry Calvin Klein when he was looking for a wife to stop the gay rumors (Andy Warhol bitchily said in his diaries that Calvin would never marry Bianca, who he described as a “cartoon,” when he needed to marry a “real woman,” like Kelly Rector, to stop the gay rumors).

Her life changed after she was hit by a car in the Hamptons while riding a bike-she was severely injured at the time, and that is when she really became an activist.

by Anonymousreply 2806/28/2020

I actually met and spent a week with Bianca in the early 1990s. At the time I was dating a guy who was good friends with Bob Torricelli, a NJ Democrat who was then in Congress in Washington and was later elected to the US Senate. Bob was dating Bianca and we all ended up at another mutual friend’s house in East Hampton for a week.

I was only in my early 20s, but Bianca was a lot of fun to be around and treated me as an equal with the rest of the group in the house who were all in their 40s and 50s and very successful. She really was passionate about politics and human rights, but wasn’t dull or sanctimonious about it and was just as ready to have a great conversation about something more frivolous as well.

Anyway, regarding finances I’ll never forget this was around the time Michael Price’s legendary mutual fund was really taking off and Bianca was telling anybody in the house who would listen to get in. She even said to me by the pool one afternoon that although I was young and probably not earning all that much to just find out the entry level investment amount in the fund and buy it. And to get my boyfriend to lend me the cash if necessary, so for sure Bianca was savvy about money! LOL

Would loved to have truly become friends with her. But after seeing her and Bob casually a few more times at some parties and dinners in New York, my relationship with my boyfriend that knew them ended about a year later and I never saw Bianca again.

If her breath smelled bad (as someone mentioned upthread), it was probably because she was a smoker.

I read through her Wiki page, and you just know that she's an up-and-comer, if she changes her name at SIXTEEN years old from the Spanish "Blanca" to the more glamorous Italian "Bianca."

She was not an heiress. Her father was a Nicaraguan businessman and after her parents divorced, her mother ran a lunch bar in Managua. She won a scholarship to study political science in Paris when she was about 17. She was Michael Caine's gf for awhile and he said he had never argued so much in his life. He later married a woman who looks incredibly like her, but has aged much better. (Bianca apparently has eschewed plastic surgery and other beauty treatments.) She was later engaged to a French record exec named Eddy Barclay when she met Mick at a music industry party. The other Rolling Stones hated her, especially Keith. He blamed her for pulling Mick away from their formerly close partnership. She was known to have a violent temper. After the divorce, she said that Mick had slept with every one of her friends. Her daughter said that she felt neglected through her childhood, but Bianca now enjoys a close r'ship with her daughter and grandchildren.

Apart from affairs with Ryan O'Neal, Helmut Berger and Bob Torricelli, she has not had a long term r'ship.

She lost a valuable ring in Austria, which was subsequently found. According to local law, the owner is required to give 10% of the value to the finder. She has overstated the value for insurance purposes, and did not want to pay the inflated finder's fee.

She had toxic mould in her NYC apartment and was in a lengthy lawsuit against her landlord.

She has been very active in human rights since at least the 90s.

Bianca comes from an upper middle class family in Nicaragua and her father was a successful businessman. But he divorced her mom when Bianca was pretty young and wasn’t very supportive financially, so there wasn’t a lot of money around while she was growing up.

Still, she was in a privileged situation as her uncle on her mother’s side was the Nicaraguan ambassador to France. Based on her grades he helped her get a scholarship to study in Paris and that was her ticket out, which combined with her stunning looks in the early 1970s put her in good stead to find a rich husband.

She landed him in Mick and although nobody knows exactly how much she got in her divorce it was at least £1 million GBP which would have been be worth about $4 million USD adjusted for inflation. She was definitely screwed considering Mick’s wealth and the fact the he was in adulterous relationship with Jerry. But if she invested well the settlement could have set her up for a decent standard of living for the rest of her life, especially considering how relatively cheap real estate prices were in London and NYC at the time.

She may quietly get some money from Jade if she needs it, they are very close and always have been. Also, Bianca was and still is very loved by the super rich friends she made in the 1970s like David Geffen, Calvin Klein, Barry Diller, and the slightly less rich but still loaded types like Ian Schrager. It wouldn't be all that surprising if some of them have helped her financially at times or at the very least given her excellent investing advice, let her in on stock deals, etc.

It’s the Fran Lebowitz model on how to live quite well without actually working. LOL

Maybe this is a cultural thing. Central Americans and Southern Mexicans don't tend to smile unless there's a good reason for it. And posing for pictures, even on your wedding day, is not a good enough reason. I learned this first hand when my sister married a Salvadoran back in 1997, and in every single picture of his cousins, titos and abuelas from back home, they are all frowning. My sister was pissed when she saw the photos because they all looked like it was the unhappiest day of their lives. His siblings and cousins and nephews who grew up in the US or migrated years earlier and were Americanized were all smiles, though. We have since had several reunions with my BIL's extended family and again, so many frowning faces in the pictures.

She dated Bob Dylan briefly post Jagger.

She was beautiful, chic, lively, and had a veneer of sophistication that appealed to Mick. But they were both immature prima donnas, and Mick was incapable of fidelity, so the marriage was doomed to fail.

Although she has quite a stern and angry face, she has remained consistently stylish throughout her life. I have only ever seen her wear solid colours, never prints or checks or plaids, nearly always in black, cream or white. Considering how much she is in public view, some small cosmetic tweaks would help enormously - botox, a neck lift, and mid-face lift. For a smoker, she has nice skin and hardly any wrinkles.

Jerry Hall, r68? What makes you think she'd do it for the money.

by Anonymousreply 6906/30/2020

It was Jerry Hall who was rumored to have been a Mme Claude girl. She was "discovered" by fashion agent Claude Haddad, at 16, while sunbathing in St Tropez, and brought to Paris. It took some time before she made good money modeling, but in the meantime, she roomed with fellow struggling model, Grace Jones, and the two would perform risqué cabaret acts at places like Club Sept. Grace Jones claimed that Jessica Lange was another roommate, but Miss Lange has denied this.

Claude Haddad, btw, along with fellow agent Jean-Luc Brunel, were accused by dozens of models in a Diane Sawyer "60 Minutes" segment of drugging and raping them. Brunel's name had recently turned up numerous times in court documents filed against Jeffrey Epstein, naming Brunel as a co-conspirator. So, shady business all around.
