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.

#Legend Magazine April 2016

In their first fashion shoot together since 2001, Yasmin and Simon are featured on the cover of the April issue of Hong Kong-based magazine #Legend, with several additional pages and an interview together inside.12916739_446124372263626_611361634702452208_o Some tidbits from the interview, which you can read in full on #Legend‘s website:

Simon: “I think things are very stable at the moment in music. It seems quite institutionalised, with the success of stuff like The Voice, The X Factor and Pop Idol. The scope for rebellion is really big now. There’s a lot for young people to kick against. I think we’re due for a big, big musical rebellion right now. And I’m looking forward to it. I won’t be part of it, but I’ll definitely watch it.”

Why we will never see him as a judge on The Voice: “I don’t want to be part of the establishment. It feels like giving in. I also think it chips away at your credibility with your fans and your ability to be free and honest. It’s a taint. It’s money. It’s tainted money and it’s not good for artists.”

Yasmin, on her favorite Duran song, which changes constantly and are “never singles”: “I’m very lucky. I’m never alone: when I’m missing Simon, I’ve got his voice always.”

Do they use Skype when they’re travelling?  Yasmin says that she was hesitant at first, because, as she said, “When you really are away from somebody, you have to protect yourself a little bit, distance yourself a tiny bit, kind of steel yourself for that time away. Otherwise you become very, very emotional.”  When they tried it for the first time, “I remember him being far, far away and he decided that he was going to put the camera on. He put the camera on – and burst into tears. And I said: ‘Right, that’s it. That’s exactly what I knew was going to happen.'”

Simon talks about his commitment to Blue Marine Foundation, a cause to which Yasmin is also devoted: “We’re becoming more and more aware now of how much the seas have been overfished. Have you ever had a holiday in the Mediterranean? The kids say they don’t want to go swimming because there are too many jellyfish in the water. That is a direct result of over-fishing, because a lot of the animals that feed on the jellyfish larvae, mainly tuna and turtles, have ended up on tables. The rate at which the seas are being cleared of life is unsustainable. We will end up with a jellyfish-infested toilet to swim in.”

Does petrol-head Yasmin own any classic cars?  “I don’t. I have them all in my head, thank you very much, which means they’re fantastic on maintenance, servicing and storing. I buy a lot of magazines that I have to say the family are getting really sick of. I’ve become like the crazy old lady with magazines.”

le-bons5

Why Simon is not a fan of Kindles: “I prefer paper books because when you finish it, you can give it to someone. You can’t do that with a Kindle. Also, when you read a book that’s made out of paper, you leave a trail. You’ve got a thumbed page, a smudge on it, or a coffee ring. I think there’s something very human about it.”

FYI, Duran Duran is currently on tour in the USA supporting their latest album Paper Gods.  See them near you, if you can – always a fun show.

Stylist Arabia 15 September 2015

Yasmin was selected as the muse of innovative fashion designer Mary Katrantzou to appear alongside her in this week’s issue of Stylist Arabia, which was guest edited by Katrantzou and features a look at her upcoming collections.

In the interview inside, Katrantzou speaks of admiring Yasmin since seeing ad campaigns of her as a teenager, praises her individual sense of style and the energy and passion she brings to whatever she does, and says that she feels “so honoured to share the cover with her.”  Yasmin, meanwhile, fondly remembers the first Katrantzou show she ever saw, finds the concept of supermodel “absolutely hysterical, no one is saving any souls here,” says “I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t be” a feminist, and shares the name of her favorite song on Duran Duran’s latest album Paper Gods (hint: it’s a bonus track).

Check out a videoclip from the shoot on Stylist Arabia’s Instagram.
