Yasmin and Laura Whitmore, Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade Ambassadors, support Avon’s Breast Promise. In a video where Yasmin and Laura model their customized bra t-shirts, she speaks about her commitment to the Breast Cancer Crusade:
“It’s an easy thing to feel passionate about. I think it has affected so many people; and for me and my family, it affected us in quite a dramatic way. I lost my mother to breast cancer, so it’s a very personal issue for me.”
She also discusses her earliest memories of Avon through her mother, who was an Avon lady, and encourages all women to make a breast self-check part of a regular beauty routine.
You can watch the video and make your own promise to support fighting breast cancer on Avon’s website. For every promise made, Avon will allocate £1 or €1 to Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, plus you will automatically be entered into a drawing to win your own celebrity t-shirt. (UK and Republic of Ireland entrants only.)
On September 19th, Yasmin (wearing a Peter Pilotto skirt) and Simon attended the gala premiere of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel at the Curzon Mayfair in London. The documentary film tells the story of the great fashion editor and columnist, who was one of the most influential figures in fashion and style from her start at Harper’s Bazaar in 1937 until her death in 1989.
Learn more about the film, watch the trailer, and check out showtimes during its limited run on the official site.

On September 18th, Yasmin and Amber were among the members of the British fashion industry who gathered at a reception to celebrate British fashion in 2012. The event was also an occasion to honor outgoing Chairman of the British Fashion Council Harold Tillman and formally announce Natalie Massenet, the founder of Net-A-Porter, as his successor as of next January.
Yasmin showed off her eclectic style by pairing a grey t-shirt with a favorite fur wrap, electric blue trousers, and black platform stiletto boots.
Yasmin and Simon were among the thousands who attended the Goodwood Revival in Chichester this past weekend. The annual festival, advertised as “a magical step back in time,” celebrates the golden era of motor sports from the 1940s to the 1960s by offering its visitors the chance to see some of the most impressive vehicles of motoring history up-close and in action on the racing course. Guests are invited to take in the full experience by dressing in period costume and leaving the “modern world” behind.
The Le Bons definitely embraced the spirit of the event, as can be seen in these photos. Simon tweeted his highlights, which included a number of races, a tribute to racing legend Dan Gurney, and a reuniting of pre-war “Silver Arrows” Grand Prix cars, an experience which many found the most momentous of the Revival.
Yasmin is featured in an editorial titled “Terribly Nice Jumpers With Yasmin Le Bon” in the autumn/winter 2012-13 issue of UK-based magazine The Gentlewoman, with actress Angela Lansbury on the cover. It was shot by Alasdair McLellan, who photographed her in 2009 for Paris Vogue. This appears to be the first photo shoot with her new haircut.

On September 11th, Yasmin and Simon joined friends Tim Jefferies and Elle Macpherson for a Park Hyatt Event at Hamiltons Gallery in London, of which Jefferies is the gallery owner. The gallery was the perfect backdrop for the event, which celebrated the esteemed hotel brand’s reputation for elegance and luxury.
After participating in Westfield London Fashion’s Night Out fashion show, Yasmin attended a dinner to mark the unveiling of the all-new 2013 Range Rover at the Royal Ballet School in Richmond Park, where she was joined by friends Yasmin Mills, Kelly Hoppen, Melissa Odabash, and Assia Webster. A longtime “petrol head”, Yasmin talked cars with the Land Rover crew and posed for photos in front of the vehicle.
On September 6th, Yasmin and daughter Amber joined Jade Jagger to appear in a special catwalk show at Westfield London in celebration of Fashion’s Night Out London. While this is not the first time that mother and daughter have shared the catwalk (most recently for Chanel last December), Yasmin admitted that she still found it rather strange: “I mean, it’s wonderful, it’s fantastic to come here together but it is quite odd,” she told Getty after the event. “I see her walking down and I think, ‘I’m sure I’m not really meant to be here…’ (laughs) ‘…not sure I’m still meant to do shows with my daughter.’ But it’s cool, you know… it’s fantastic. I’m very happy I still can.”
While she may modestly wonder if she is too old for the catwalk, Yasmin’s poise and confident bearing as well as her serene beauty and affable demeanor will hopefully continue to leave her in demand for years to come.
Check out more interview clips with Yasmin and Amber (including Yasmin’s inspiration for her recent haircut) at Getty, plus video and interviews from the show on Westfield’s YouTube channel and more catwalk clips at MyDaily.
On Tuesday, September 6, Yasmin and Amber will join Lizzy Jagger in a public catwalk show to celebrate Fashion’s Night Out London at the Westfield Shopping Centre in Hammersmith. They will be modelling a mix of high-end and high street looks.
