Where We’d Meet
Le Club 55 on the beach in St Tropez, not far from Jerry’s home in Cote d’Azur
What We’d Wear
Jerry would rock up in an Emilio Pucci maxi, K. Jacques sandals and a simple straw bag.
I wouldn’t quite pull off Jet Set. My waist-length blonde hair extensions would itch, I’d trip up on my way-too-long kaftan and the heat would have me reaching for Strip Anti-Chafing Cream.
What We’d Eat and Drink
We’d share prosciutto and melon then move on to Club 55’s famous lobster lunch (with fries), and lashing of house rose and finish with a flourish of tarte aux fraises, bien sûr.
3 Things I’d Ask…and The Answers
Q1 Tell me about your early days as a model
Fantasy Answer I’d shovel lobster and chips down my neck while Jerry would regale me with tales of running away from Texas when she was 16, sharing a flat in Paris (France) with Grace Jones, being discovered by Helmut Newton, gracing the front cover of 40+ Vogue’s hanging out with Andy Warhol, hitting the catwalk and Studio 54, being photographed as a mermaid on the cover of a Roxy Music’s album, Siren, getting engaged to their lead singer Bryan Ferry then dumping him for Mick Jagger, who was inspired to write Miss You for her.
Q2 Do you still stand by your quote that to keep a man you need to must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen, a whore in the bedroom?
“That’s as true today as it was when my mamma gave me that advice way back when, although with Rupert pushing 90 I’d add… and a nurse in the bathroom.”
Q3 Who is more Rock n Roll Mick or Rupert?
Fantasy Answer Jerry would take a sip of rose, and smile “Mick IS Rock n Roll but Rupe is much kinder, more reliable and”…cue full Texan drawl “richer.”
