Jerry Hall would teach Georgia May Jagger and Suki Waterhouse how to walk the runways when they were kids.

The supermodels are two of the biggest names in fashion at the moment, and have taken to the catwalks for the likes of Burberry Prorsum and Alexander Wang.

They've known each other since childhood and were lucky enough to get some early lessons in fashion posing from Georgia's model mom Jerry.

"After a couple of glasses of wine, my mom would start teaching us how to catwalk in the living room," Georgia laughed to the British magazine Grazia. "But it would be completely 1980s style with three twirls and a big pose at the end. Shows are so boring now, but at the same time I wouldn't know how to be like mom was with all the theatrics. I'd give it a go, though!"

All her help has paid off, as Georgia followed in Jerry's footsteps as the face of Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume.

The 22-year-old, daughter of rock royalty Sir Mick Jagger, has also worked with jewellery company Thomas Sabo and fronted beauty campaigns for cosmetics giant Rimmel London.

Despite her many successes, Georgia  has a realistic view of the fashion industry and is already looking towards other ventures for when she hangs up her modelling shoes.

"I recognise that not everyone has a long career like mom and to a certain extent I want to be able to do this for now, but then at some point be able to look like sh*t every day. "Nowadays one passion isn't enough is it? I love photography and art and would love to explore that - who doesn't need to multi-task?" she smiled.
