Yasmin was one of the many surprise guests to appear in today’s spring/summer 2021 Fendi show, which kicked off Milan Fashion Week as the first non-virtual show in the Italian fashion capital. Designer Silvia Venturini Fendi, who has been at the helm of the design house since the passing of longtime artistic director Karl Lagerfeld, was inspired by family and the tranquility of staying at home, which she presented in nuanced colors, prints with shadowy imprints, and many sheer, pajama-like fabrics.
Earlier today, Yasmin appeared in the autumn/winter 2020 show for Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, helmed by design team Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, and the spring/summer 2020 show for TOMMYNOW, led by American designer Tommy Hilfiger.
This is her first time on the catwalk for both designers, as she is normally a fixture on the front row for Preen, one of her favorite brands.
This is also her first time on the London Fashion Week stage for 11 years, since she appeared in the autumn/winter 2009 Qasimi show.
Yasmin made a surprise appearance at today’s couture show by fashion’s enfant terrible, Jean Paul Gaultier. The show, which marked the designer’s 50th anniversary and his final couture show, was full of celebrity models, including Noémie Lenoir, Rossy de Palma, Dita von Teese, singer Mylène Farmer, Estelle Lefebure, Paris Jackson, Winnie Harlow, and Béatrice Dalle.
To my knowledge, this is Yasmin’s first time ever walking for JPG!
Yasmin proved that her appearance in the Calvin Klein show was not a fluke earlier today by walking in this year’s celeb-packed L’Oréal Paris fashion show. It was held on a 60-meter runway that floated on the Seine and featured contributions from the autumn/winter 2018 collections of numerous Paris-based designers. Yasmin wore Balmain.
Yasmin made a surprise appearance in the spring/summer 2019 Calvin Klein show, her first runway show in 4 years and first Calvin Klein show in over 25 years. (See more of Yasmin walking for Calvin Klein here.)
Artistic director and cinephile Raf Simons was inspired by the film Jaws, with models walking on a blood-red catwalk sporting wet hair, t-shirts, wetsuits and red beanies like those of the film’s protagonist. He also made a nod to another cult film, The Graduate, in the form of mortarboards, oversized blazers, and dresses worthy of Mrs. Robinson.
She joined 90s-era British model Stella Tennant and today’s it-girls Kaia Gerber, Lineisy Montero, and Binx Walton.
The Calvin Klein label is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, having been founded in 1968.

On the first day of London Fashion Week, Yasmin and Amber appeared in the spring/summer 2015 show for Gyunel. Taking inspiration from the nomadic scorpion, Azerbajan-born Gyunel Rustamova’s latest collection evoked a desert theme with hairstyles and prints reflecting its spirit of adventure and wanderlust.
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.
