Yasmin Le Bon Biography

Yasmin Le Bon was the Oxford model made good as she rose to become one the 1980's most famous super models. Her career got off to a slow start mostly doing minor fashion shows until the bright lights of London beckoned and she decided to try her luck by literally knocking on the doors of fashion agencies.



Yasmin didn't have very far to look as the first agency she visited signed her up on the spot and she was working before the ink was completely dry on her contract.

The modeling industry was growing stale of the blue eyed blonde hair look so her timing was impeccable as her mysterious beauty stood out like a beacon on the catwalks of London. It was not long until she was gracing the front covers of Elle and Vogue and becoming the face of campaigns by Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.

Le Bon's modeling led her future husband to become smitten with her after seeing her photo in a fashion mag so he conjured up a plan to meet her and the rest is true romantic history.

Yasmin has worked with the industry's best and been interviewed all over the globe which makes interesting reading while researching for my compilation of 16 of the best Yasmin Le Bon quotes.

She looks great in clothes, and if you need her to imitate someone like Jackie O, she always knows exactly what you mean. You just have to find her inner-self and that charm always comes through"

Her singer husband Simon Le Bon counting his blessings: "I guess I'm really lucky that I picked somebody really bloody good in the first place. She's great fun, fantastic, beautiful, and we laugh all the time. It's not always easy at all. But I really want to stay married for life"
