French photographer Gilles Bensimon may have the privilege of shooting Yasmin more than any other photographer.  He joined American Elle upon its launch, shooting her for its first cover in September 1985.  Previously, he photographed her many times for the magazine's French counterpart, including her iconic cover of 20 May 1985 in yellow sequined swimsuit.  Bensimon also shot Yasmin for American Elle's 20th anniversary issue in 2005.
