Mick Jagger's ex-wife Bianca Jagger, 77, almost unrecognisable as she wows at Dior show

The former Studio 54 regular completed the look with a pair of oversized gold drop earrings, black leather gloves and a white Lady Dior handbag.Bianca was married to Rolling Stones singer Mick from 1971 to 1978.The former couple met in 1970 before marrying in a Catholic ceremony in Saint-Tropez, France.They share a daughter together, Jade Sheena Jezebel Jagger, who was born October 21 1971.Despite his marriage to Bianca, Mick once claimed that it was better for musicians to “not be with anybody” because “domesticity is death”.His comments were made back in 1974 but were then republished by rock magazine Uncut in a special on drummer Charlie Watts, who died aged 80 last August.He also added that he differed from stars like the late David Bowie, who “spend a long time at home with their old ladies and families”.Mick and Bianca didn’t have the most conventional marriage, and it has been widely reported that both spouses strayed during their seven-year union.In 1973, it was revealed that Bianca had an affair with actor Ryan O'Neal, while Mick was constantly surrounded by women and fangirls.She told People in 1977: “In the first years of our marriage, I played the wife. I was docile and subservient…but groupies weren't an easy thing to get used to.“I have had very few affairs.

There’s been an increase in David Bowie-inspired baby names since his death

David Bowie-inspired baby names have been on the increase since the icon died in 2016, new figures have found.According to the Office for National Statistics, the number of boys registered with the name Ziggy, a reference to his acclaimed 1972 album ‘Ziggy Stardust’, at birth in England and Wales rose from 49 to 136 between 2016 and 2021.The number of boys registered with the name Bowie also rose from 35 to 78 during the same period.The names grew in popularity for girls too, with 28 girls called Bowie and 14 called Ziggy last year. The name Ezra also rose in prominence following George Ezra‘s success with 1,226 boys registered with the name last year.Like Ezra, the number of baby girls named Mabel also peaked in 2021 at 885, which followed particularly large increases in 2018 and 2020.This may have been influenced by the singer and songwriter Mabel, whose breakthrough single ‘Finders Keepers’ reached the Top 10 in 2017, according to the new research.Elsewhere, Star Wars, Pixar movies and the TV show Sex Education were also among the cultural influences credited with boosting the popularity of less common names.Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Bowie’s fourth studio album, ‘Hunky Dory’, will be released as a deluxe reissue that will include unreleased home demos, live recordings and other rarities from that era.Last month, Brett Morgen’s Bowie documentary film Moonage Daydream also arrived in cinemas, along with an accompanying companion album featuring previously unheard material, unique mixes created for the film, and dialogue from Bowie.In a five-star review of the film, NME wrote: “Morgen’s film isn’t a greatest hits set.

How Sound Crew Spent 18 Months Turning Bowie’s ‘Moonage Daydream’ Into an Immersive ‘Fever Dream of Sound and Vision’

Roy Trakin Brett Morgen’s “Moonage Daydream,” a freewheeling documentary about David Bowie, doesn’t offer a chronology of the life of the late pop icon. Rather it provides a fever dream of sound and vision, with songs torn apart, reimagined and reassembled in ways that reflect its subject’s chameleonic music and art. The doc, out now in IMAX theaters, was a labor of love for Morgen that took four years to assemble and edit. It was another 18 months constructing the ambitious soundtrack, which required the talents of the Oscar-winning “Bohemian Rhapsody” team of Ventura, Calif.-based rerecording mixer Paul Massey (with David Giammarco); London-based supervising sound and music editor John Warhurst and supervising sound editor Nina Hartstone; and Dolby Atmos Music Studios.

Tried-and-true as the template might be, Brett Morgen also finds it fatally boring, and endeavors to chart a less clear-cut path with his films.
