Yasmin Le Bon On Why Being 50 Is Awesome

author: Penny Travers

Some celebrities just make ageing look pretty darn fun. Just look at Judi Dench and her tattoo plans and Monica Belluci, who has just become the oldest ever Bond girl.

Now iconic model Jasmin [sic] Le Bon has confirmed what we've all been thinking: 50 is the new 30. 

Simon Le Bon's wife has celebrated her landmark birthday by appearing on the cover of Red magazine, decades after her first cover shoot. 

At a dinner to celebrate her 10th appearance in the mag, she said, 'It was such a privilege to be on the cover of Red magazine as I turned 50, especially having been a cover star in my teens. 

'It shows that women of all ages have relevance in the modern world - even an old bird like me. It was a wonderful way to celebrate a new era.'

And just in case you were in any doubt about how cool the model is, she added a few piercings to her ears to age the rock 'n' roll way, 'I will not grow old gracefully. It will be disgraceful!'

We'll definitely be taking a leaf out of Yasmin's anti-ageing book. Minus the multiple ear piercings, perhaps…
