Most people benefit from experience, but in David Bailey’s opinion age has not improved his skills. Speaking at the launch of an exhibition of his work at the National Portrait Gallery today, the photographer admitted that he is no better now than he was when he started taking pictures more than 50 years ago. “I haven’t progressed. I’ve probably got less good. I take exactly the same photos as I did when I was 16,” he said.

Debate: If you were Jerry Hall, would you have Mick Jagger back?

Jerry and Mick are in trouble again, as one supermodel after another pops up to claim intimacy with the veteran rockstar. Should Jerry sling him out? Must an affair mark the end? No, says Jeremy Atiyah, there are worse things a partner can dump on a relationship. But infidelity is a betrayal of trust, says Virginia Ironside, and that's hard to come back from

Stop modelling please, Jagger tells daughter

SHE'S FIVE foot nine inches tall in her stockinged feet, has a mane of blonde hair, a killer pout and gets stopped on the street all the time by fashion scouts who are looking to sign her up as a model.

Why Are They Famous ? Elizabeth Jagger

Main Claim: Fabulously famous parental units. Unless she pulls off a Liza Minelli, Elizabeth Scarlett Jagger will be known for ever more as the daughter of Texan model Jerry Hall and rock dinosaur Mick Jagger: a couple so frantically famous, even relatively sensible rock-offspring nomenclature and a Hello!-free upbringing cannot prevent fame of the thrust- upon variety. To aid matters, Elizabeth has taken to the catwalk like a Jagger to the lens. Now she has been seen during London Fashion Week in yellow eyelashes and snagged pink tights modelling for Vivienne Westwood. It can only be a matter of time before Naomette Campbell and Katie Moss- Depp negotiate the catwalk in nappies.

Stars in their eyes

In a welcome backlash against the vogue for navel-gazing self- obsession, young artists are increasingly taking images of screen stars and rock idols as their subjects. But is the new vogue for celebrity portraits a symptom of our Nineties, `Hello!'-style celebrity worship, or a critique of it? asks Dominic Lutyens

Fashion: Price is right for the house that Gianni built

Long before Gianni Versace began courting rock stars to wear his clothes, Antony Price was dressing Roxy Music and the Rolling Stones. Now, as the house of Versace looks for a new couture designer to step into its founder's shoes, London-based Price has emerged as a front-runner. Tamsin Blanchard meets a man for whom fashion doesn't end at size eight and whose clients love the way he treats their curves.

After the hype, British fashion lures the serious money

After decades of hype and no substance, London fashion is finally being taken seriously. Last week, Paul Smith, a world player in menswear with sales totalling pounds 165m last year, announced that he would be showing his women's collection on the catwalk for the first time later this month. And he has chosen London as the venue.

Vivienne Westwood dresses Jerry Hall

Vivienne Westwood OBE, British fashion's famous and controversial madame, is going mainstream - at least by her standards. She has decided to advertise her clothing, and this is one of the results. Here, Westwood puts her son, Ben, and Jerry Hall in The Queen and her Punk, a pastiche of Van Dyck's Henrietta Maria and her Dwarf, writes Melanie Rickey.

The material world

Worrying about `progressive' education these days is surely a bit like worrying about the Cold War

I don't know why everyone makes such a fuss about teenagers. My oldest turned 13 last week and it seems to me that it's very like having a small baby in the house again. They sleep and eat most of the time and you get disproportionately excited when you manage to extract a word or a smile out of them.
