Modist, the home to modest, luxury fashion, celebrates ageless beauty in the September 2017 issue of their virtual magazine, featuring Yasmin on the cover and inside. In the accompanying interview, she shares some of her usual witty, thoughtful remarks.
“I still love it [fashion shoots], and get excited by it, that collaboration. I learn something new every time… It’s actually like a form of meditation, in a way.”
“I do everything I shouldn’t and nothing I should. I like to think I have a balanced view.”
“Being attached to a phone all day, Instagram, Facebook – it can lead to so much discontent. If you are prone to going through dark times, social media can really accentuate that.”
“We need to have a healthier association of what [ageing] means, and what is inevitably going to happen – I mean, enjoy it, embrace it, it’s another chapter and another part of your life.”
“I don’t think [depression] is something that ever leaves you completely, it’s something you manage and learn to deal with. Seek out someone through a recommendation, someone that you can trust, go to talking therapy. Don’t be frightened to do that, and don’t feel guilty because you think your issues aren’t as worthy as others. It certainly helped me.”
