Yasmin was featured in this past weekend’s Stella magazine, a supplement to the Telegraph. Inside, she displays her stunning beauty and irreverent, witty, filterless remarks.
The older you get, the more you need to hold on to your rock’n’roll. I like [to shop for] labels that design for people like me – characters who just never want to grow up. I would be a rock chick for ever. I wear more miniskirts now than I did in my 20s and 30s. I’m sure people say things behind my back, but what I don’t hear or see doesn’t hurt me.
I don’t go on social media, really. You have to be so careful not to spend your time comparing and despairing. It’s so easy to do, no matter how good of a place you’re in. I just think if I don’t see all those people, then I feel like I’m in a happy, positive place, and consequently I feel quite differently about myself.
I’m lucky if I do two dry days. It’s nice to take care of yourself and it’s good for my liver to have a rest sometimes, because it does work hard. I love you, liver. But I can’t really stick to anything. Life’s too short.

Italian Marie Claire has selected 4 supermodels to be featured on the covers of their March 2019 issue as part of their “Generazione top” whom they celebrate as having marked the past four decades of fashion and of our lives.
In her 50s, Yasmin is described as a “madre e nonna che vive senza nostalgia,” who finds that the most drastic change she has experienced in over 30 years in the public eye is the loss of anonymity. “Social networks have given the chance to be more creative and open to the world, if you want to. The problem is understanding when it’s time to turn off, to click the ‘off’ button. Today it seems obligatory to have to spread one’s private life.” Yasmin is a fairly recent addition to Instagram but is wary over the frequent obsession with the numbers of one’s followers and the pressures of today’s world to comment on everything, no matter how minor. “For me the important thing is who follows you, not how many people follow you. It’s an empty world, it’s not mine.”
