Italian Marie Claire has selected 4 supermodels to be featured on the covers of their March 2019 issue as part of their “Generazione top” whom they celebrate as having marked the past four decades of fashion and of our lives.
In her 50s, Yasmin is described as a “madre e nonna che vive senza nostalgia,” who finds that the most drastic change she has experienced in over 30 years in the public eye is the loss of anonymity. “Social networks have given the chance to be more creative and open to the world, if you want to. The problem is understanding when it’s time to turn off, to click the ‘off’ button. Today it seems obligatory to have to spread one’s private life.” Yasmin is a fairly recent addition to Instagram but is wary over the frequent obsession with the numbers of one’s followers and the pressures of today’s world to comment on everything, no matter how minor. “For me the important thing is who follows you, not how many people follow you. It’s an empty world, it’s not mine.”

Yasmin is on the cover and inside of the December 2018 issue of Country & Town House. The 54 year old grandmother barely looks a day older from when she first appeared in the magazine 7 years ago.

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.

Yasmin appears on the cover of Vanity Fair En Route, a supplement to the September 2018 issue of Vanity Fair UK, out today.
Inside, she describes her experience of test-driving the latest Ford Mustang GT convertible. (Her verdict? She was particularly fond of the “earthy rumble” of the motor and the ease of putting the top down but lamented that it was not smooth at low speed despite its torque and lacked the aspect of immediacy and danger she expected in other performance cars.) Read the full review on Vanity Fair’s website.
Yasmin appears on the cover and inside of this past weekend’s Stella magazine, where she was photographed in some of the pieces she will be selling tomorrow on Vestiaire Collective.
In the accompanying interview, she talks about becoming a grandmother (daughter Saffron gave birth to son Taro in June), her decision to part with pieces of her wardrobe, and her determination not to grow old gracefully.
