We pit the forerunners of the next generation of supers against each other to see who comes out trumps.

British model Georgia Jagger has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’.

Perhaps it’s her Brigitte Bardot-esque pout, indie style or tousled ‘bed hair’, but one thing is for certain, it’s still early days in this It Girl’s career.

Meanwhile, her American counterpart Kendall Jenner has a classically beautiful and symmetrical face with a lithe and athletic figure that young girls dream of.

Fashion Month Appearances:

Georgia: Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Marchesa, Tommy Hilfiger, Mugler, Fendi.

Kendall: Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy, Balmain, Fendi, Ports 1961, Dolce & Gabbana, Pucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs.

Winner

Kendall takes the biscuit here- we’re dizzy just thinking about all those shows, let alone the fittings, hair, makeup, rehearsals, after parties, etc.

Her uploads often revolve around family, friends and her work with fashion industry veterans, making us remember how young she is at heart.

Winner

Kendall is the undisputed teen queen of social networking. Her photos garner up to a million likes and thousands of fans profess their adoration for her, proving her stance as a powerful influencer.

Famous Family:

Georgia: The gap-toothed blond is the youngest daughter of musician Mick Jagger and supermodel Jerry Hall.

Rock and roll and fashion are part of her blood. Her cool brood of siblings include model Lizzy, designer Jade and guitarist James.

Kendall: The leggy brunette is the oldest offspring of Olympian Bruce Jenner and Kardashian-matriarch Kris.

Kendall rose to fame primarily thanks to the reality tv show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but since she became a serious contender as an international model she seemingly been keen to distance herself from her famous klan by dropping her last name and telling LOVE that she asked sister Kim not to attend the shows she was walking in.

Winner

Georgia- when your dad is a member of the Rolling Stones and your mum was one of the original supers, there is no competition.

Campaigns:

Georgia: The British model became an international face when she was signed by Rimmel London. She has been on the books of TESS Management for six years, which has lead to work with Hudson Jeans, Chanel, H&M, Miu Miu, Versace, Vivienne Westwood and the London Olympics.

Kendall: She signed with Wilhelmina Modelling Agency at the tender age of 14, and starred in campaigns for Forever 21 and Sherri Hill as a young teen.

However, her rise to editorial and catwalk favourite has only really gone stratospheric in the last 18 months- and we think this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Winner

Georgia. She has already clocked up an impressive portfolio with seriously fashion forward brands, and Kendall should look to work with similar heavy hitters.

Verdict:

Georgia could take Kate Moss’s crown as the next ‘hybrid’ model: that is, one who enjoys commercial success and is also an influential muse who is revered for her personal style and nonchalant attitude. (Coincidentally Georgia and Kate are both only 5’7”.)

Meanwhile Kendall has the connections, the aesthetics and the drive to dominate the international modelling world, and at 18 she has already left an indelible mark on the industry.
