Mother vs. Daughter (NSFW)

Some of the sexiest mother-daughter pairings in history. Which will it be?

This week H&M released their new ad campaign featuring Jerry Hall and her daughter to Mick Jagger, Georgia May. In honour of this mother-daughter modelling duo, we decided to pay tribute to some of the foxiest mother-daughter pairings in history - and play them off against one another. Here follows some rock royalty in the form of Steven Tyler and Bebe Buell's daughter (Liv Tyler), the fashion genes that could conquer the world (the Roitfelds), and of course the inimitable Jane Birkin (our personal favourite) and her two stunning daughters. We'll let you be the judge of who takes the cake: mother or daughter?

JERRY HALL VS GEORGIA MAY JAGGER

Blessed with her mother's hair, bone structure and height, but with her father's distinctive pout, Georgia May Jagger has already begun what is proving to be a very successful career in modelling. At the tender age of 19, she is following in the well-trodden steps of her model and actress mother, Jerry Hall. Georgia is undoubtedly stunning, with one of those perfect gaps in her teeth that we'd all kill for... But then again, Jerry has cavorted with rock stars Mick Jagger and Bryan Ferry and was the toast of the town in her heyday. So we can't help but ponder: who is the fairest after all?

BEBE BUELL VS LIV TYLER

I honestly cannot figure out how Liv Tyler turned out so damn pretty. I mean, sure, her mum was a babe (no pun intended), but with one side of the gene pool so severely lacking (I'm looking at you Steven Tyler), how is it physically possible? I guess rationality has got nothing to do with it, though - if it did, all the good genes would probably be a little more evenly distributed between the rest of us. Either way, both mother and daughter alike are stunning in this pairing, so it's a really tough contest! Hopefully Liv is slightly less crazy than her mother, though...

CARINE ROITFELD VS JULIA RESTOIN ROITFELD

On the one hand, Carine is the smouldering combination of Russian and French heritage and the embodiment of ultimate French seduction. On the other hand, with her beautiful feminine curves, milky skin and her mother's piercing green eyes, Julia (star of Oyster #94) has definitely got it going on. We would love to see the play-off between these two Roitfeld ladies: they say French women are extra fiesty. And when you've been in the fashion industry that long (or been around it almost as long), that's got to add to the sharpening of the claws.

JANE BIRKIN VS LOU DOILLON

The similarity between these two beauties is quite uncanny. That heavy fringe, long dark hair, pouty lips and a penchant for the wild side are all qualities shared by this particular mother-daughter duo. It is also these qualities which happen to send both Birkin and Doillon's respective sex appeal skyrocketing. The daughter of British Birkin and French Director, Jacques Doillon, Lou is a model and an actress after her mum's own heart. Both like to get naked where possible, Birkin in the film Don Juan (Or If Don Juan Were a Woman) - which 8 a steamy scene between the British model and Brigitte Bardot ? and Doillon in such ad campaigns as the one pictured below for Givenchy. Who is sexier? It's so hard to tell when they're so damn similar!

AND JANE BIRKIN VS CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG

Jane Birkin is one of the few candidates who would deserve a double mention in this feature, but she certainly does deserve it! If for no other reason than for the delight of reflecting upon her saucy relationship with Serge Gainsbourg, which saw Birkin produce yet another genetically blessed daughter, Charlotte Gainsbourg. The more classic and demure of Birkin's daughters, Gainsbourg is equally as gorgeous as her half-sister, Lou. Having recorded an album with her father at the tender age of fifteen, this actress and songstress is following in the footsteps of both her mother and father in the singing stakes. But is she sexier than Jane?

What do you think? Mother or daughter?
