NEW YORK – Give Georgia May Jagger a photo of herself and she’ll find the one little thing wrong with it. In that way, she’s just like most of us. She can spot from a mile away the nervous smile or unflattering pose.

But as she develops her modeling career, the 20-year-old said she’s getting better at accepting these things and, honestly, getting better at her job.

“Even the most successful models, it takes getting used to. Fashion and photos can still be intimidating, even if you’re always around it, but they’re not as much now as my first ones!”

With a little more practice, maybe she’ll be as smooth and graceful as her model mom, Jerry Hall, or as comfortable in her own skin as her rock star dad, Mick Jagger.

Yes, Georgia May Jagger is no stranger to being around a camera. It’s very much in her blood.

“I ask my mom for advice often. It’s not specifically ‘how to model’ — you have to develop that yourself — but I’ll ask her about fashion. I’ve seen her work before, and we talk about work. She’s obviously very experienced,” Jagger said.

(One of her best beauty tips — to take off all her makeup at night and, on rare occasion, go a day or two with no makeup at all — comes from Hall.)

From her dad, Jagger, who has posed for Chanel and Versace, among others, gets some of her eclectic style, she said, but she’d describe her own look as a little less flashy than his. She has a bit of the old English countryside style in her closet, combined with glam rock touches. Vivienne Westwood is a favorite designer.

A few years ago, she wore a Westwood-designed leopard-print jacket with big puffy sleeves to a big press event. She took that from Hall’s closet.

“I had a moment beforehand when I wondered, ‘Should I wear it?’ My mom is tall and gorgeous and can wear anything, but it worked out in the end for me. I was there to have fun and I did.”

She added, “A young girl should have fun. I’d say wear whatever you want. Don’t worry about being sensible.”

Jagger is the new spokesmodel for Material Girl, the collection designed by Madonna and her daughter Lola. “I do think it represents Madonna’s style when she was younger. Girls my age are still trying to do it. It’s all youthful and fun and carefree style that she’s known for.”

Director will drive pace car for Brickyard 400

INDIANAPOLIS – Director Ron Howard will have one of the best seats at this year’s Brickyard 400.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway officials announced Friday that the Oscar-winning director would lead the field before the July 29 race at the storied 2.5-mile track.

Howard won Academy Awards for best director and best picture in 2001 for “A Beautiful Mind.” His latest project is “Rush,” about the Grand Prix clashes of Englishman James Hunt and Austrian Niki Lauda.

Speedway President Jeff Belskus said Howard has immersed himself in motorsports culture while filming “Rush” and is “an ideal person to pace the field.”

Howard calls it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Holmes says she’ll return to Broadway

NEW YORK – Katie Holmes has decided what her first major acting project will be since announcing her divorce from Tom Cruise: Broadway.

The actress will star in Theresa Rebeck’s “Dead Accounts,” a five-character comedy that will be directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O’Brien, producers said Thursday.

All eyes were on Holmes’ next step as a single woman. Was it to be a big film or a small one? Or more TV? Her decision to return to the physically strenuous eight-show-a-week life of a Broadway stage actress indicates a willingness to jump into the deep end.

Her last appearance on Broadway, which also marked her debut, was in the 2008 production of “All My Sons.” The news that she will return to a Times Square stage is also a signal that she may intend to stay in New York.

Holmes first came to stardom in the teen soap opera “Dawson’s Creek.”
