As the former supermodel prepares to tie the knot with the media mogul a look at the run up to his fourth – and technically her first – marriage.
The youngest daughter of five – Hall – with her charming Texan drawl – has led an extraordinary life – quitting a violent home when she was 16 to head to Paris.
She knew nobody but quickly landed at the centre of the cutting-edge arts scene – sharing digs with Grace Jones – being discovered by the photographer Helmut Newton and posing on the cover of French Vogue within months.
By the age of 21 she had featured on 40 Vogue covers – was engaged to Roxy Music frontman Ferry – was enjoying the pleasures of Studio 54 in New York – the haunt of the likes of Michael Jackson Woody Allen and Debbie Harry – and earning $1,000 a day.
She had a fling with multimillionaire horse breeder Robert Sangster and was painted by Warhol six times.
By 1978 she had ended up with one of the most famous rock stars in the world – Mick Jagger.
Hall is wealthy in her own right but does not come near the billionaire league with a relatively modest £10m settlement when she split with Jagger 16 years ago.
She also got half of the 26-room house they shared in Richmond but can only stay until she is 65 – co-habits or remarries – prompting the cliched speculation that she is after a slice of Murdoch’s money.
Although she spent years being cuckolded and had to endure the humiliation of an extra-marital child to a Brazilian model Jagger and Hall remain close and it is unlikely poverty would ever be a challenge for her – whether she met Murdoch or not.
