Georgia May Jagger says her mother's modelling advice is "so 1980s".

The youngest daughter of Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger likes to think she has her own unique style when it comes to posing in front of the camera.

Jagger says although her model mother likes to offer words of wisdom when it comes to the catwalk, her advice sometimes falls on deaf ears.

"People think that since I was six, Mum's been saying, 'Do it like this, honey,' but it wasn't like that," she insisted in an interview with Style magazine.

 "Well, OK. Sometimes she'll show us how to do the catwalk thing, but her version of it is so 1980s. She'll say, 'Then you flick your hair around like this, honey, and go like this with your haaands, and do a twirrrrl like this.'"

Jagger also revealed her home life is far from glamorous.

"We're not like that," she laughed. "At home, we wear Brora dressing gowns and have buns on our heads. We're not the kind of people who put on make-up to go to the corner shop. It's more about dressing up. It's more of a Southern-beauty-queen-type thing. It's, 'Yeaaah, let's go for it. More!'

"My mother hasn't had any surgery, and she tans. You can't freak out and base your whole life on being youthful and beautiful. It's not realistic and it's not going to make you happy," she added.
