Material Girl Takes you Backstage at Madonna’s MDNA Tour
Georgia May Jagger Stars in Material Girl’s Fall Marketing Campaign
New York, New York – July 2, 2012 – MG Icon, the joint venture between Iconix Brand Group, Inc. and Madonna unveiled its fall 2012 Material Girl marketing campaign today featuring Georgia May Jagger, the daughter of legendary rocker, Mick Jagger and supermodel, Jerry Hall. Jagger follows fellow rock royalty, Kelly Osbourne as the face of the junior brand, available exclusively at The Bay and thebay.com in Canada.
“We think Georgia May has great style and perfectly captures the energy and free spirit of the Material Girl Fall line,” commented Madonna and her daughter Lola.
The campaign creative casts Jagger as the ultimate VIP, capturing her getting “all access” at Madonna’s MDNA concert. Photographed at the actual rehearsal for Madonna’s MDNA tour at Nassau Coliseum in May, the campaign showcases Jagger behind-the-scenes, on stage, and in the wardrobe room. The fall campaign will debut in Canada in August.
“I had so much fun shooting this campaign,” commented Georgia May Jagger. “I spent a lot of my childhood backstage hanging out around amps. That was where we chilled when we were younger. So this photo shoot brought back a lot of memories. I have always admired Madonna’s music and style; she is constantly reinventing herself,” she added.
Dari Marder, chief marketing officer, stated, “Georgia is a natural beauty with rock and roll in her genes…she is the ultimate Material Girl. We are also thrilled to be able to offer customers the chance to win tickets to Madonna’s MDNA tour through our Material Girl Facebook page.”
“Material Girl is a brand that resonates so well with our younger, fashion-forward consumers”, says Suzanne Timmins, Senior Vice President, Fashion Director, The Hudson’s Bay Company. “Georgia May Jagger is the perfect choice for the fall campaign – she has such an inherent sense of personal style and she perfectly captures a playful, edgy, rock and roll spirit.”
Material Girl will hold a sweepstakes giving consumers the opportunity to win pit tickets to Madonna’s MDNA tour throughout the United States and Canada. Material Girl correspondent, Briana Herrera, will blog about the concert on Lola’s Material Girl blog throughout the tour. For additional information, please visit: www.materialgirlcollection.com
