Yasmin Le Bon (nee Parvaneh), one of the top
models of the 80's, has one of the most intriguing
faces ever due to her mixed race background, born
in England to an Iranian father and English mother.
She was born in 1964 in Oxford, England and was
discovered at the age of 17 while working at a local
boutique as a salesperson. She met Duran Duran's
Simon LeBon in 1984 and married in 1985. Yasmin
went on to great success in the industry in the late
80's, as a favorite face of American Elle and British
Elle and has over 400 magazine covers. She
currently resides in England with her husband and
3 daughters, still works consistently and remains
one of the most beautiful models in the world.
From i-D Magazine interview, March 2009: had a
wardrobe that seemed exclusively Azzedine Alaia;
does not speak Farsi; father was a photographer;
admires Arthur Elgort for always experimenting.
