Sir Mick Jagger says One Direction star Harry Styles has “got it going on”.

The Rolling Stone said Harry often comes to watch his shows and said he can see how the young star has been influenced by his style.

Sir Mick told the Mail on Sunday’s Event Magazine: “He’s got it going on. I know him, he comes to see me in lots of shows.

“And yeah, I can see the influence. But I don’t say anything to him, I just tell him he looks nice. I like him. He’s very decent.”

Sir Mick also said his late girlfriend, fashion designer L’Wren Scott, still has a “huge influence” on him and his style.

L’Wren, a red carpet favourite, with her dresses worn by Hollywood stars including Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz, killed herself in her Manhattan apartment last year.

Sir Mick said her clothes are “very emotional” for him and he continues to wear jackets she designed.

He told the magazine: “I’m still wearing L’Wren’s ones. L’Wren still has a huge influence on my style, on me. Her clothes are very emotional for me. There is a big emotional pull. That’s important to say.”

The 72-year-old rocker said that a lot of the clothes he wore in his heyday have been handed down to his children.

“In fact a lot of my clothes got taken by my kids. Lizzie was the worst, the most blatant; she’d go out wearing a pair of velvet trousers I’d worn at the Roundhouse in 1969.

“Then she gave me a pair back for my birthday. I love getting my own things back for my birthday,” he said.
