Clothes not money for Yasmin Le Bon

Yasmin Le Bon used to get paid in clothes.

The 44-year-old British model often accepted designer outfits instead of money when she was working in the 80s, but was usually too busy to ever collect them.

She explained: “I often got paid in clothes, but you never had time to pick them up.

“I have a great wardrobe now, but I find it difficult to find clothes for my age – sexy and demure at the same time.”

Yasmin – who is married to Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon – also admits she used to distract other models and was once left blushing after an overzealous pose ruined a photo shoot.

She told Britain’s InStyle magazine: “I was terrible. I used to talk to people and eyeball them. If a girl I knew was passing, I would smack her butt and throw her off her game.”

“My first show at London Fashion Week, for Roland Klein, is burned in my memory. I did a 360 degree twirl and my huge clip-on earrings flew off. I caught one but the other hit a photographer’s lens.”
