Elle Italia December 2017

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Elle Italia features Yasmin and other models on the covers and inside of their jam-packed December issue. She was shot by Max Vadukul with fashion editor/stylist Benedetta Dell’Orto, hair by Leigh Keates @ Premier, makeup by Emma White Turle @ The Wall Group, stylist Silvia Pescia, casting director Giulia Massullo, and contributing editor/interviewer Valentina Mariani.

A fixture in Italian Elle since the mid-80s and cover model of the first issues of American and British Elle, Yasmin was a natural choice to be featured in this special issue. As she said in the accompanying interview, “Elle is a magazine that I am very connected to, especially for its ‘fashion democracy’; I think it’s brilliant to present fashion by showing just about everything to readers, from the height of haute couture to things that are more commercial and cheaper. Elle has turned fashion into a theme that affects all women, from every social background and race, and has found a way to make them feel united and part of a single world. They’ve done it in a way that is creative and never trivial, and I think this is beautiful.”

Modist September 2017

Modist, themod17sept01luciao'connormccarthythe home to modest, luxury fashion, celebrates ageless beauty in the September 2017 issue of their virtual magazine, featuring Yasmin on the cover and inside.  In the accompanying interview, she shares some of her usual witty, thoughtful remarks.

“I still love it [fashion shoots], and get excited by it, that collaboration. I learn something new every time… It’s actually like a form of meditation, in a way.”

“I do everything I shouldn’t and nothing I should. I like to think I have a balanced view.”

“Being attached to a phone all day, Instagram, Facebook – it can lead to so much discontent. If you are prone to going through dark times, social media can really accentuate that.”

“We need to have a healthier association of what [ageing] means, and what is inevitably going to happen – I mean, enjoy it, embrace it, it’s another chapter and another part of your life.”


“I don’t think [depression] is something that ever leaves you completely, it’s something you manage and learn to deal with. Seek out someone through a recommendation, someone that you can trust, go to talking therapy. Don’t be frightened to do that, and don’t feel guilty because you think your issues aren’t as worthy as others. It certainly helped me.”

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.
