Yasmin Parvaneh was born in Oxford, England, the younger child of an Iranian father and an English mother. She has an older sister named Nadreh. Her mother, Patricia, died of breast cancer in 2004.
In April 1987, she was hired by Guess? for an advertising campaign. Throughout the late 1980s, she appeared on the cover of the first American and British issues of Elle. She has also been on the covers of Vogue, V, I.D., Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar.
As a model, Le Bon has also represented Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Bergdorf Goodman, Biotherm, Bloomingdale's, Bonwit Teller, Calvin Klein, Versace, Chanel, Christian Dior, Clairol, Escada, Filene's, Frasercard, Avon and Gianfranco Ferré.
In September 2009, Le Bon partnered with Wallis to design her first women's clothing and jewellery collection called YLB. Her second collection was launched in March 2010.
Le Bon was invited to be one of the drivers in the 2013 Mille Miglia race in Italy. Each year, the three-day event passes through nearly 200 Italian towns from Brescia to Rome and back, recreating the original races which took place between 1927 and 1957. She and her co-driver, David Gandy, were part of “Team Jaguar”, driving a 1950 Jaguar XK120. Early in the race, Le Bon and Gandy were “pushed off the road by a competitor” which caused body damage to the wing and side of the vintage car. They re-entered the race, ultimately finishing in 158th place out of 415 cars.
In 1984, she met Simon Le Bon, lead singer of Duran Duran. They married on 27 December 1985 in her hometown of Oxford. The couple have three daughters: Amber (born August 1989), Saffron Sahara (born September 1991) and Talullah Pine (born September 1994).
