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.

Stunning mother-daughter team Yasmin and Amber Le Bon pair up in the autumn/winter 2016 campaign for Italian-based brand Sisley, known for contemporary, sexy, and edgy clothes that clearly transcend generations.

This is their first campaign together for over three years, when they were the face of Monsoon.

Vogue Italia June 2016

Yasmin and Amber were shot by Mario Sorrenti and styled by Joe McKenna for the June 2016 issue of Vogue Italia, for which Sorrenti has included a collection of photos of family members including Kate Moss and daughter Lila Grace.  This is Yasmin’s first time working with Sorrenti.ff0b5e76-0115-49de-8813-43e018817f56

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.

Red Magazine July 2015

Yasmin is on the cover of the July issue of Red Magazine, photographed by David Gubert and styled by Nicola Rose with hair by Ben Cooke and makeup by Ashley Ward.

In the accompanying article by Saska Graville, she talks about her active and weathered household (“You can see every wire in my home, it’s like spaghetti junction. And let’s not talk about the dog pee.  All I can say is, what was a cream carpet now looks very on-trend tie-dye. And my curtains are very ‘dog-pee ombre'”), “muddled” family life (“We’re a happy gang, and our gang gets bigger and bigger”), durable marriage (“I’m sure the reason we’ve been married so long is that we’ve spent huge amounts of time apart.  You can support someone, but you have to go off and have your own life”), and where she sees the future taking her (“I’m open to adventures. I want to go hiking in Chile, discover more of Europe… Who knows, the world’s my oyster”).  She also opens up about her longtime struggles with depression for the first time in a refreshingly upfront and honest fashion that goes to show that it can affect anyone and helps call attention to a condition that remains largely stigmatized.

I have had real depression,’ she says. ‘It’s a running battle every day and I’ve worked very hard at it. I’m in control of it but it’s there all the time. I’m not frightened of it any more, I can talk about it.’

For herself, she has never gone down the antidepressant route, but trusted that the darkness will come to an end. ‘You’ve got to know you are going to get out of it. It may take time, but you will,’ she says. ‘I haven’t [taken medication] but I would if I felt myself really on the edge and needed extra help. If your body’s not producing what it should be, then there’s nothing you’re going to be able to do about it. We have the science, knowledge and understanding to put it right. You’re not a failure, it’s an illness.’

In addition to being featured on the cover, Yasmin was also photographed with her three daughters (Amber, 25, Saffron, 23, and Tallulah, 20) in their first family photo shoot for Red since October 2001.

The magazine will be available at newsstands on 28th May and can be purchased as a digital download at http://www.redonline.co.uk/magazine/digital-edition.
