Exciting news as Yasmin has been named the face of the Speedo Sculpture swimwear collection for 2014. At 49 years of age, Yasmin once again goes to show that age and beauty need not be mutually exclusive.
She worked exclusively with Speedo to help them design their Swimsuit Confidence Handbook, in which she shares tips to help women of all ages feel more confident in their swimwear this summer. With swimsuit season almost upon us, the guide has been launched to help tackle the anxieties many women experience and the fear of the walk from the changing room to the pool, or the towel to the sea. Yasmin says, “After spending 33 years on the modelling circuit I have heard all of the tricks of the trade. The best advice I’ve received on looking your best in a swimsuit, is to wear it with confidence and a smile; it instantly changes your appearance.”
Yasmin’s first foray into swimwear modelling was for Marks & Spencer in 2001.
Yasmin is one of the models featured in the premiere issue of Violet, the long-awaited venture of stylist extraordinaire Leith Clark. Clark is the style director at British Harper’s Bazaar and the founder of Lula magazine, which she left to launch Violet.

Mother and daughter pose in bras from Yamamay‘s Basic Collection to raise breast cancer awareness in support of LILT, the Italian league for the fight against cancer, in conjunction with Italy’s national week of cancer prevention from March 16-23.
The campaign, shot by Giovanni Gastel (who worked with Yasmin as early as 1987 for Missoni), calls attention to the fact that breast cancer affects women of all ages.
Yasmin has been a longtime supporter of the prevention and research of breast cancer, a disease from which her mother suffered before her death.
