Jerry Hall , New York, W Magazine, 1981

Jerry Hall was already a huge superstar model by the time I met her.  She was very nice, professional. I think I was a little apprehensive that she might be difficult, as I also had two other very well known top models also working on the same job with her that day.  We got together at Donna Karan's apartment that day and had the girls get ready there.  This was shot just down the street from there.  Fashion naturally by Donna Karen. 

I would meet Jerry again a few times after this in Paris, backstage at some of the Haute Couture shows, where I shot special beauty reportage features for W.  She said she remembered me and was very nice, I couldn't believe it, but was flattered.  I had been a fan of the Rolling Stones and she of course was Mick's girlfriend and later his wife.  Before that she was the girlfriend of one of my other favorite performers, the founder of Roxy Music, the singer/songwriter, Bryan Ferry.
