Yasmin Le Bon wants to stay in the fashion business

Yasmin Le Bon Yasmin Le Bon never wants to quit the fashion business.
The supermodel - whose career has spanned over three decades - says, despite being 41, she has no intention of giving up her career.
She said: "No way am I going to quit! I enjoy it so much they'll have to drag me away before I quit."

Yasmin Le Bon Yasmin has also admitted to committing the ultimate fashion faux pas when she married Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon in 1985.
She explained: "At the time, we were living out of a suitcase so I only had this black number but Simon got all traditional and said I couldn't wear black. So I ended up wearing the only thing I could buy on Boxing Day - a beige jumper dress. I looked so atrocious I knew he must love me."

Claudia Schiffer to Become Modelling Agent!

Claudia Schiffer Supermodel Claudia Schiffer is planning to become a modelling agent, and represent her young daughter, should she choose to follow in her mother's footsteps.
The German beauty, who's married to film-maker Matthew Vaughn, no longer gets work as a catwalk queen, and has thus decided to work as a fashion agent now, which she thinks will help her stay at the top of the fashion industry.

Claudia Schiffer "I would be brilliant as an agent now," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying."All that dumb stuff they do with new girls today, such as sending them to do a campaign for cookies. Well, say good bye to Vogue after that. If you get it right, it opens so many doors.You have to explain to girls that they need to hold out," she added.
