Wow, someone actually posted to this thread!! :p Though most of the time I think it's only me and you, Shana.

Aside from the Red, Yasmin also co-starred on the cover of Vogue UK July 2007 (her third since August 1987) and was on the covers of View of the Times spring/summer 2007 (with some amazing photos inside), Irish Tatler March 2007, and Madame Figaro Taiwan December 2006. (I only found out about this last one after reading her interview in VooT in which she said her most recent cover was for a Taiwanese or Korean MF and, after deducing there was no Korean MF, found a small photo of her cover on her agency's site. Then I wrote to the publishers, and they sent me one for free. Sweeeet.)

Now I just have to find out where these are from:



source: http://www.models1.co.uk

I hope the links to the photos work, cause my .htaccess file is designed to block people who hork my bandwidth from using my photos.

Unfortunately, they don't work. So just visit my site (link in my sig)!

^Yasmin just rules. I'm so happy to see her so busy. I admit that I am sad that she doesn't appear in US mags these days.

Thanks so much for posting all this info and keeping us updated.

She is one of my favorite models, very iconic of the 80s SUPERMODELS, although she's still a very beautiful working model. It's a shame that 2 decades later, there are few models with her diverse looks. The modeling world has gone backwards for the worse, models today have a hard time matching her portfolio of beautiful photos and covers.

^It truly is a shame that there is so much less diversity in the modeling world these days. Not only diversity in skin color, but in body shapes as well.

Yasmin will always be special to me. She's a great model that should never be forgotten.

^ No, it hasn't been posted here before! It's from Purple Fashion, I think the spring/summer 2006 issue.

Yasmin Le Bon announces formal retirement from modeling.

http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7008945747

Sally Grover - Celebrity News Service News Writer

London, England (CNS) - The fashion industry has lost one of its most influential faces. Yasmin Le Bon, one of the most successful supermodels of the 90s, has declared that she is finished with the industry. At 42-years-old, Le Bon has admitted that she considers herself to be too old to be strutting down catwalks and posing for pictures. The beauty believes that once she retires she will never earn money again. During her years as a jet setting beauty, Le Bon had ideas to produce her own fashion line and design clothes. However, now that it is crunch time, Le Bon says that she has given up on her dream to be a designer because she doesn't know enough about business. She told Contact Music, "I thought of it years ago - but I'm a model not a business woman. I love fashion, but I don't know anything about that side of the business - so I just don't see it happening. I'll probably never make another penny!" However, someone else in the Le Bon family is going to give fame and wealth a try. Le Bon's 17-year-old daughter with Duran Duran front man husband Simon, Amber, is going to venture into her mother's territory and model. The Yasmin look-alike launched her career in Scotland for U.K. label All Saints.

I don't believe it. Nowhere in that comment did they say that she was quitting. Also, she recently visited Elite while her husband was touring in New York, had some polaroids taken, and they announced that she was available.

I think that when Amber was in that All Saints show, it was a one-off charity thing. As I mentioned in her thread, I see Amber getting into other artistic endeavors but probably not modelling.

I'll have to ask Yasmin just to confirm, cause I've heard that "news" repeated from the rather unreliable Contact Music on many internet outlets. It's making me wonder more every time I see it, but I think that her visit to Elite earlier this month speaks volumes.
