When Mick Jagger began dating his first serious girlfriend, Chrissie Shrimpton — the younger sister of celebrated Sixties model Jean Shrimpton and an ethereal beauty in her own right — he had yet to grow into the looks which would earn him a reputation as one of rock ’n’ roll’s greatest lotharios.

‘My sister Jean at that time was going around with a lot of debby Vogue types,’ remembers Chrissie. ‘I used to hear them whispering, “Poor Chrissie, her boyfriend’s so ugly.”’

Small, scrawny and with those famously large lips — once described as capable of ‘sucking the egg out of a chicken’s a***’ — the young Mick would attract such unfavourable attention for some time to come.

He was then 19 and a student at the London School of Economics, while Chrissie, 17, was a secretary in Covent Garden — in those days still the scene of a raucous fruit and veg market. ‘Mick would come and meet me for lunch,’ she recalls. ‘One day, as we walked through the market, a stall-holder threw a cabbage at his head and shouted “You ugly f*****”.’

Given all this, it’s perhaps not surprising that Mick hugely enjoyed showing off his beautiful ‘bird’ to his fellow LSE students, and she would later become the envy of his legions of fans. But life as his trophy girlfriend was far from the paradise they might have imagined. [x]

This photo was taken in 1965. in London’s Hyde Park. These five guys are actually members of the short lived Mancunian band The Toggery Five (1963-1966) and these lovely ladies are famous models, actresses and singers of the day. From left to right: Imogen Graham (actress who played a role of a manicurist in The Repulsion (1965), Ingrid Hepner (model), Chrissie Shrimpton (model, sister of Jean Shrimpton and a girlfriend of Mick Jagger at the time), Linda Churcher and Sarah Leyton (sister of the ’60s pop star John Leyton).
