“Coat connoisseurs” Yasmin and Saffron Le Bon promote the new season of coats for Marks & Spencer.
Both mother and daughter are fashion fanatics and love adding bold, statement pieces to their wardrobe. In this shoot, they model their favorite coats from M&S’s fall collection.
Saffron “made a beeline” for the faux fur she wears in the above photo and loves taking risks, whereas Yasmin is a fan of impeccable cuts and eye-catching proportions and fabric. One of her favorite selections is the “really sharp, straight black coat” she wears below.
Apart from family shoots, this campaign marks Saffron’s first modelling job as an adult. Her true passion is for music, having received her BA in music performance last year.

Future Dreams is a London-based charity that strives for a future free of breast cancer, a cause to which Yasmin is strongly dedicated, and raises money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and The Haven. Find out how you can help out on their site.
Also this autumn, makeup artist extraordinaire Lisa Eldridge (who has been working with Yasmin since 1993!) invited her to shoot two different makeup looks, a natural take on ’90s glam and a “rock chic” look. In them, Yasmin shares tidbits about the heyday of the supermodel era and her personal makeup secrets. Yasmin has the most incredible stories – a must-watch. Check out one of the videos at the link below.
Yasmin has joined fellow 80s and 90s supermodel Paulina Porizkova as the face of Swedish clothing brand KappAhl in images shot by photographer Hasse Nielsen, appearing on their website as well as in their commercials. This is not her first time representing the label, as she previously did so in the mid ’90s.
Recently, it was announced that Yasmin and daughter Amber are on the cover and inside the December 2016 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Taiwan. In addition to the fantastic images, mother and daughter did an interview that appears on their website (in Chinese) and a video behind the scenes at the photo shoot.

Yasmin’s long-awaited capsule collection for Winser London has finally launched! Much like with her collections for Wallis over 5 years ago, Yasmin fully involved herself in the design process and created very special pieces that she herself would want to have in her wardrobe. Combined with Winser London’s reputation for luxurious and comfortable, timeless clothes with a high attention to detail and style, Yasmin’s collection is very personal, reflecting her own classic tastes and eclectic influences. “It gives an opportunity for me to develop their style, which I believe in and love, and to take it a little bit further and add my own personality,” she said.

Among her inspirations for this collection are the city of London itself, a place where she has long lived and loved, and classic cars. Several of her pieces reflect the mystique of early motor racing, when many women were among the racers, and the styling of old racing suits. She was very much inspired by the adventurous spirit of these liberated women from the twenties and thirties, who dared to take risks in an era of strict gender norms.
Yasmin, Eva Herzigova, and Helena Christensen have been named the faces of Debenhams‘ autumn/winter 2016 campaign, which aims at “women not girls.”
In the campaign, which launches in Debenhams worldwide markets next month, the supermodels wear Designer at Debenhams products from the Principles by Ben de Lisi, Nine by Savannah Miller and Star by Julien Macdonald lines.
Debenhams marketing director Richard Cristofoli said:“Our customer has grown up with the Supermodel talent and identifies strongly with them as role model women who know how to wear a trend and wear it well. We know that our customers want advice and inspiration on how to wear latest trends in a way that suits them and by working with Helena, Yasmin and Eva we are showing confidence in our fashion offering.
“The fact that we are portraying ‘women not girls’ shows we are in touch with our customer and showing her that style has no age barrier.”
This is not Yasmin’s first time modelling for Debenhams. Her relationship with the brand dates back over 20 years, most recently for a campaign in 2006.
Stunning mother-daughter team Yasmin and Amber Le Bon pair up in the autumn/winter 2016 campaign for Italian-based brand Sisley, known for contemporary, sexy, and edgy clothes that clearly transcend generations.
This is their first campaign together for over three years, when they were the face of Monsoon.
Earlier today in Paris, Giorgio Armani unveiled his spring/summer 2016 campaign for his New Normal line, featuring Yasmin along with models Eva Herzigova, Stella Tennant, and Nadja Auermann and photographed by the iconic Peter Lindbergh.The four women, who range in age from 42 to 51, incarnate the classic spirit of Giorgio Armani, with windswept hair and minimal makeup. As Mr. Armani said in a press release, ‘For this campaign, I wanted four iconic women with strong personalities to show that feminine beauty is ageless. I chose Peter Lindbergh, with whom I have collaborated several times, because his photographs are timeless and are true to real life. I wanted to convey a sense of reality, of clothes that offer natural elegance and the normality of everyday life.’
This marks Yasmin’s first appearance in an Armani campaign, although she did walk in some of his fashion shows in the late 1980’s.
Yasmin has been revealed as the face of CODE by Donald Edge, the latest collection by the respected and notable British jeweller. The design of the customisable pieces is based on Morse code, with diamonds and other precious stones set in “dots” and “dashes.”
Her favourite piece is the “Love Is a Moment In Time” necklace (above), about which she said “For somebody who doesn’t wear necklaces a lot, I really do love [it]. It’s so easy to wear, it’s so light; I nearly actually walked off with it quite happily. I nearly got away with it too! It doesn’t seem like it’s an occasion wear piece, even though it is very very twinkly, very sparkly, it’s something I feel like I could wear all the time.”
The edgy campaign that mixes shimmer with masculinity was photographed by Kate Martin, who previously shot Yasmin at home with her dogs for Country & Town House.

According to their press release:
Once again, Yasmin Le Bon captures the spirit of Winser London – she is stunning, stylish and real. Yasmin juggles a busy career, family and husband, like so many of us today, yet she always looks effortlessly elegant and is always fun to be with. Then we introduce to you, Milly and Agneta – both beautiful next generation models you will also see on the pages of fashion magazines.
Our favourite colours for the season? Nude and champagne are chic and timeless Autumn hues, particularly when knitted in Merino Wool or pure Cashmere or in our luxurious silks and satin-back crepes. Rich berry is flattering and on trend, taking the season’s Miracle Collection and knits to a new level of sophistication. Our graceful greys span from a warm grey marl through to deep charcoal. A pop of Winser blue is a must when looking for a coat for the season.
In trousers, the hot looks are either wide leg or a narrow tapered leg. Knitwear looks range from fine knit either in a rib or gossamer stitch through to the chunky ribs and our signature Milanos. In dresses and skirts, we are introducing new colours and new shapes – you’ll see in this preview our famous Miracle Dress in rich berry and dark grey. Our popular silk shirts continue and we introduce a limited edition Maxi Silk Shirt Dress, elegantly modelled by Yasmin Le Bon in vintage rose.

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.
