The Vogue Paris party does not stop! Yasmin Warsame, fresh from her turn in July’s now legendary issue of Vogue Italia dons a blonde wig and heaps of attitude in October’s Vogue Paris. The Testino Afro-Disiaque story sees Yasmin at her wildest and most distinctive, proof that some girls only get better with time.

    I Love this! It’s so great to see Yasmin back in action, better than ever! The third “smoking” photo is very reminiscent of classic Linda Evangelista/Juergen Teller…wonderful!

    Absolutely flawless. The epitome of a model

    What do you mean? Vogue Paris has their own black issue? Because they have Yasmin? and Lakshmi? (who’s Indian?) This is a perfect example of integrating beautiful models of color into a high fashion magazine, that one does not have to be “white” to carry a strong editorial.

    I say, this Vogue Paris, looks amazing!

    Yasmin is the greatest. Not a fan of this hair. I hope we get to see her in her natural glory in Paris Vogue soon.

    I love Yasmin!!! I’ve been following her career for a number of years and she is absolutely a breathtaking stunner. Yasmine, you really rocked this past Summer’s Vogue Italia. What a fashion spread…you are so damn exotic and a great mentor and friend to another Somalian beauty/model that I adore….Ubah.
