December 2016 update

Yasmin has had an active career as of late!  Let’s look at some new work that she has done over the past couple months.

In October, Future Dreams issued their fall magazine with Yasmin and her fabulous Models 1 agent, Karen Diamond, as photographed by Simon Emmett.  (Emmett also shot Yasmin for the October 2000 issue of Paris Vogue.)

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 and Amber raising funds for Quintessentially Foundation and Elephant Family

In advance of their 5 day rickshaw race in early November through Madhya Pradesh in India as part of Travels to My Elephant, an effort inspired by the work of the late Mark Shand to help call attention to the plight of endangered Asian elephants and support their conservation, Yasmin and Amber have established a Virgin Money Giving page to raise money for Quintessentially Foundation and Elephant Family.

Amber, who set up the page, writes that funds raised will go to helping save endangered Asian elephants, a cause close to both of their hearts. She adds that those who donate will be added to an email list to receive fun pictures and videos of them from the roads of India.

Elephant Family, the organization founded by conservationist Mark Shand, is dedicated to saving the Asian elephant, whose numbers have plummeted by more than 90% in the past century, from extinction.  Quintessentially Foundation aims to improve the education, health, and welfare of disadvantaged people worldwide.  Your donation will help support both of these important causes.

So far, £267.50 has been raised with a goal of £10,000.  Donations will be accepted through November 1st.

Visit Yasmin and Amber’s Virgin Money Giving page to donate.

Travels To My Elephant

This November, Yasmin and her daughter Amber will be taking part in Travels To My Elephant, an 8-day race of 30 rickshaws across Madhya Pradesh in India to help protect the Asian elephant from extinction.

There are currently less than 35,000 Asian elephants in the wild, a decrease in population of 90% over the past century, with the loss of forests and the illegal ivory trade further dwindling their numbers.

The charity event, which aims to raise a total of 1 million pounds, is being organized in memory of Mark Shand, the late founder of Elephant Family and a friend of Yasmin’s.  It was announced in a reception hosted at Clarence House by the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, who was Shand’s sister.

Yasmin told the Daily Mail: “Mark was a dear friend whose work was so important. It would be a crime not to carry it on. I’m very into my cars but racing a rickshaw is going to be something else. I am going to be the driver and Amber will be the navigator. We get on brilliantly but I think being cooped up in a rickshaw for eight days together it going to be explosive. Luckily the engine is loud so I won’t be able to hear her – although I might be tempted to take some gaffer tape too. I really want people to support us in any way they can. It is the mad sort of challenge Mark would thoroughly have approved of and it’s wonderful for the prince and duchess to lend their support.”

This is not her first attempt to help raise money for Elephant Family, as she supported the charity as one of many celebrity pledge drivers to participate in last year’s BCG Annual Global Charity Day.

Also participating in the race will be actress Susan Sarandon and Quintessentially Foundation principal Ben Elliot.

Yasmin and Amber Le Bon pose together to fight breast cancer

Mother and daughter pose in bras from Yamamay‘s Basic Collection to raise breast cancer awareness in support of LILT, the Italian league for the fight against cancer, in conjunction with Italy’s national week of cancer prevention from March 16-23.  Il-cancro-non-ha-eta_image_gallery

The campaign, shot by Giovanni Gastel (who worked with Yasmin as early as 1987 for Missoni), calls attention to the fact that breast cancer affects women of all ages.

Yasmin has been a longtime supporter of the prevention and research of breast cancer, a disease from which her mother suffered before her death.

World Oceans Day

As ambassador to BLUE Marine Foundation, Yasmin is committed to helping resolve the largest solvable problem on earth: the crisis in the world’s ocean.

In conjunction with this year’s World Oceans Day on June 8th, Yasmin has participated in a three minute long video, produced in partnership with Crème de la Mer UK and Ireland and the BLUE Marine Foundation, in which she calls upon us to recognize the significance of the ocean in our daily lives and why we should make its protection a priority.

Over half the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean.  That’s every second breath we take.

The ocean’s future is our future.  But irresponsible human activity is destroying the very life that sustains us.

Now more than ever, the ocean needs our help.  The BLUE Marine Foundation is committed to protecting this most precious resource.  It needs your support.  Together, we have a real chance to solve the global crisis in the ocean and breathe life back into the sea.
