British model Georgia May Jagger has been unveiled as the face of Vivienne Westwood’s new Gainsborough jewellery collection, a fine jewellery line made of Palladium - and we've got a sneak preview to show you.
Inspired by the Dame’s iconic collection of paper jewellery, which first hit catwalks in her 2000/2001 Gold Label collection, now the designer has recreated some of her most loved designs in the precious metal for a more premium, luxury line of jewellery.
Shot by iconic photographer Juergen Teller, Georgia wears a made-to-order tiara and earrings in the campaign, pieces that made their debut on the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week in Westwood’s Spring/Summer 2013 show.

If you’ve no occasion for a princess-esque tiara, six more commercial pieces from the collection will be sold exclusively at Selfridges and Vivienne Westwood Boutiques from the end of October, with prices ranging from £270 for a small pair of earrings, to £750 for an intricate necklace. Take a look at the new line of jewellery below.

Featuring frequently on the Westwood catwalk, and sat on the front row at her Spring/Summer 2013 catwalk show, the young British model was an obvious choice for the Vivienne, who chose Georgia May because "she's absolutely gorgeous. She's so beautiful and looks wonderful in the jewellery".
The Gainsborough Collection will be available to buy in Selfridges, Vivienne Westwood UK stores and online at viviennewestwood.co.uk from the end of October.
