Ph: Sølve Sundsbø | Best of British




Nationality: United Kingdom
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.
