Born in Kent in 1943, Mick Jagger, the lead vocalist from the Rolling Stones is hard proof that being overtly masculine isn’t necessarily a requirement for having a string of extramarital affairs, which resulted in seven children with four different women. Only one of which is not a model.

This ultimate poster boy for sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll is not exactly the essence of manhood but nonetheless women perpetually fall at his feet. Having perhaps one too many collagen injections stuffed into his overly pouted, puckered up lips and a gaunt face and frail structure. Jagger definitely became a style icon of our time by dressing so wrong it was right. In his too tight everything, he carried himself off in a nonchalant, rocker way.

One of the most intriguing things about that classic Jagger’s look is that it seems to bring out something carnal in the opposite sex – the drainpipe jeans, close fitting crew-necks and theatrical jackets being the perfect balance of macho effortlessness and sartorial imagination. He does however, lose some points for that stint in the Seventies when the Stones embraced glam-rock and Jagger began appearing on- stage in glitter and make-up. Nevertheless, despite the fact that elements of his style could have been seen as effeminate there’s no denying Mick drove the ladies wild, racking up one of pop culture’s most impressive little black books.
