Happy birthday, Yasmin!

Yasmin turns 48 today, just as beautiful as she was when she first caught the public’s eye over 20 years ago.

Enjoy today’s birthday update and groove to Duran Duran’s Come Undone (Simon wrote the lyrics as a birthday gift to her), as performed live in Los Angeles last year and directed by surrealistic cinematic legend by David Lynch.

Chanel’s Little Black Jacket private view

Last week, Yasmin attended the private viewing party for The Little Black Jacket, an exhibition held at London’s Saatchi Gallery featuring over 100 photographs that show off the versatility and timelessness of the classic Chanel black jacket.  While many guests chose to wear Chanel to the event, Yasmin went against the grain with her vibrant, attention-getting dress from Christopher Kane’s fall collection that made her stand out from the crowd.

She spoke of the power of the wardrobe staple in an interview with British Harper’s Bazaar: “I suppose it’s a kind of armour in a way.  When you put a jacket on that’s well-fitted and well-made, you just feel like you can tackle anything I think.”

Yasmin has been a favourite model of Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld for many years, from 1985 when she was the face of Lagerfeld’s autumn/winter collection to today – she most recently appeared in the Chanel Métiers d’Art pre-fall 2012 show.

The Little Black Jacket exhibition will be open to the public at the Saatchi Gallery until November 4th, and the companion book will be out this autumn.
