How To Achieve Yasmin Le Bon’s Effortless Elegance

Fashion knowledge comes through experience and Yasmin Le Bon is living proof of this as she was by far the best dressed woman at the Ice and Diamonds send-off ball in London.

Yasmin, who’s been modelling for 30 years, looked stunning in one of spring’s must-have items – the maxi dress.

Maxi dresses are brilliant for women on the go as they can be dressed up or down and Yasmin is definitely a lady who is juggling many roles right now.

Firstly, Very can reveal that she is working hard for her charity Mothers 4 Children, designing products to sell in May during a month of fundraising activity with celebrity pals Louise Redknapp, Donna Air and Lisa B.

Secondly, as a wife she has just celebrated her 25thwedding anniversary to Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon. Yet she remains one of the band’s biggest supporters and couldn’t restrain herself from dancing and waving her arms during their seven song set at the Ice and Diamonds ball. This event raised money for Walking For Wounded charity, which aims to help return wounded British soldiers to civilian life, and launched the organization’s historic trek to the North Pole.

And another task on her t-do list is to be a mother to three daughters and try to organise her own clothes collection so her children can take advantage.

“I collected clothes throughout my catwalk years, archived the and  put them in storage,” Yasmin revealed. “Every year I re-evaluate and pull out pieces for my daughters, who are now old enough to wear these pieces, and want to, because fashion-wise they feel relevant once more.”

How cool is Yasmin? Her confidence comes from looking good and if you want to recreate this try the Full Circle ruched maxi dress from Very and show off your cleavage like Yasmin did

Or try the Teatro layered maxi dress – black is always in fashion!

Or if you want to  really show off your curves then go for a dress that is cut out at the sides and back and this will help create an hourglass silhouette. Check out the Forever Unique embellished maxi dress

Such a stunning dress requires classy but cool shoes like the Miss KG Hamilton black jewelled platform shoes

And keep the accessories simple but stylish with an elegant silver and cubic zirconia tennis bracelet – now just £60

Yasmin’s daughter Amber has just started modelling. Let’s hope she takes after her mum and is still going strong in 30 years time.
