Tongue-poking, nipple-flashing and wrecked - girls like Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna should take note from the ever so sophisticated Joan Collins!

Once upon a time, celebrities used to carry themselves with class and grace.

Joan Collins, wore the finest gowns, and spoke eleoquently and knew how to exit a party with sophistication.

Kylie Minogue would float into a function, dressed like a lady and behave like one too.

Even the younger slebs like the divine Harry Judd has proved to possess decent manners, great etiquette and charm.

So what’s going on with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna. Sticking their nasty tongues out whenever possible. Boasting about drug use and looking like a bunch of skanks.

These girls, sadly, are role models to teenagers the world over. And while I’m all for a bit of rebellion and angst, I do find it all a little try hard.

It wouldn’t be so bad if these girls were always like this. But Miley used to be a Disney princess, Rihanna didn’t always wear skimpy fishnets and bras and Cara was brought up with a silver spoon in her gob!

All kids go through that rebel stage, but we’ve seen it all before and from what I remember of those who have been there and done that, these girls will one day look back with regret, realising it’s all just a little be adolescent.

And if they don’t, then, by jiminy, they bloomin’ well should.
