Her name is Yasmin
Last year, whilst boarding a Virgin Atlantic flight back from New York, Mr and Mrs That's Not My Age spied Mr and Mrs Le Bon being fast-tracked onto the plane. Homeward-bound after an appearance at the Met Ball, the Le Bons boarded the aircraft to the tune of No..No..Notorious, sung by cheeky ground crew.
Back at Heathrow, we were impressed to see Yasmin, Simon and a Virgin steward keeping it real at the carousel with the plebs from economy - though why SLB needed his guitar is still a mystery. After the six and a half hour overnight flight, the 45 year-old was still looking good (that's Yasmin not Simon), face practically unchanged since the Elle magazine covers of the eighties. Chic in a camel Belstaff jacket, easy trousers and low-key trainers. I admire a woman who knows that travelling in style doesn't mean tottering through check-in with a burly minder, four inch platforms and over-sized sunglasses. And with that in mind, I'm pleased to see the latest YLB for Wallis collection hits the shops next week. My favourite supermodel's venture into fashion design, is, as you'd imagine, elegant, infinitely wearable and timeless.
Available online from 30 March.
