So over: People think we're sisters

The fact is, people never think you’re sisters. We are big Gillian Quinn fans around here. Gillian with her daughter Aisling, is a shining beacon of dignity among Wags; she’s distinctly unprecious, and has a body to die for as a result of her successful career as a Pilates instructor.

But she doesn’t need to dress like her teenage daughter. Frankly, we loved her with a pixie crop: not many women can carry off such an extreme haircut; while sporting it, Gillian was in the illustrious company of beauties such as Mia Farrow and Kate Moss. Her current look is not at all to our tastes: there comes a time when one must give up the hair extensions and the body-con bandage dresses, no matter how hot you are. Especially when your teenage daughter favours the same get-up. She’s not alone. Georgia May Jagger has complained about her own mother, the stunning Jerry Hall, and her enduring penchant for mini skirts. Rule of thumb — if the teen in your house is wearing it, you don’t want to be.
