Fri-Con Bianca Jagger

It's an early Fri-Con this week as Thursday is really Friday, and yes there is an obiligatory wedding twist. 
This week the Fri-Con spotlight is shining on the exotic, and fierce style maven that is Bianca Jagger. 
Ex-wife of Mick, former actress, model and style icon. 
Jagger owned and pionnered 1970s style, rocking wide brimmed hats, flares and pant suits, all of which can be found on the shopfloor of any retailer at the moment.
The1970s are back so it's only fair we salute the era's style queen.

Here are Mick and Bianca getting married in St Tropez in 1970. Both are wearing Yves Saint Laurent and Bianca is hiding a four month pregnant bump here under that long -line ivory jacket. She later said "My marriage ended on my wedding day" and divorced Jagger on grounds of adultery with other 1970s model and style icon Jerry Hall. 
They make a cute, wayward looking couple and for now we'll ignore what Mick is wearing (crazy fucker) and focus on Bianca's squared off Middy collared shirt with nautical piping, her amazing bloomers, those Victorian knee-high button up boots and that cute, perfectly placed hat.
Bianca is somewhat of a style chameleon and moves from cute sailor girl to exotic queen in a bat of those lashes. Here she's pictured in a turban probably designed by  YSL who pionnered the fashion -led head wrap . Back in the golden age of Hollywood the turban was a fashion favourite of Greta Garbo and Elizabeth Taylor (RIP), while Coco Chanel loved a head wrap as well. They made a bit of a come back earlier this year after Kate Moss wore one to the Met Ball and Bianca looks glorious in hers here.
It's nice to see Bianca in a touch of colour as she was pretty much a monochrome girl
This is my favourite and one of the most recognisable Bianca Jagger looks. She wore white like no one else and here she looks strong in those slightly pitched shoulders and the cute, loose, black pussy bow tied around the neck of that sharp shirt. Accomplished doesn't even begin to describe it.
