Yasmeen Ghauri is a Canadian model of mixed descent born to a German mother and a Pakistani father. She is best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and was admired as a great runway model. She was born to Pakistani Moin Ghauri and German Linda Ghauri. While her father was an Imam, a Muslim cleric for the Islamic Community of Quebec, her mother was opposed of her pursuing modelling as a career.
Yasmeen’s intriguing name and exquisite appearance comes from her lineage: Her father is Pakistani and her mother is German, and it all started for the brown-haired, brown-eyed beauty when she was 17 and still a school student.
Joseph Del Tortoon, Yasmeen’s hairdresser, suggested she should go and see a modeling agency, after he was awed by the Canadian’s radiance.
Despite her “young and rebellious” appearance, Del Tortoon saw true beauty in Yasmeen, but her parents were opposed to Yasmeen pursuing a career in modeling – whether big or small – largely due to her father’s Islamic religious beliefs.
Even in the face of her parents’ beliefs, Yasmeen persisted and, in the late 1980s, she signed a modeling contract with an agency located in Montreal. In 1990, Yasmeen relocated to the hussle and bussle of New York, where she landed modeling for none other than Versace, and it was then that people started taking notice.
Before long, Yasmeen’s star was on the rise and in the early 1990s she worked hard building her reputation, completing work for the likes of Donna Karan, strutting her stuff on the catwalks.
By 1994, and for most of the year after, she worked in Europe as well as America and it wasn’t until ’95 that she decided to tackle print work.
Ghauri became the sweetheart of the New York and Paris fashion scene. She enjoyed fame in the early 1990s when she landed her first major cover with Elle in January 1990. Soon afterwards, she became the face of both Chanel and Jil Sander. By the end of 1990, she had appeared twice on the cover of French Elle in July and December. In September, she graced the catwalk for Gianni Versace’s show in Milan and by the next month she was walking for Chanel, Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier and Lanvin shows in Paris. Her success was duly noted and she became the face of Christian Dior and Anne Klein in 1991. In January alone, she was photographed by Steven Meisel for the cover of Italian Vogue and appeared in the Harper’s Bazaar editorial. Towards the end of the year, she appeared in the British and the Italian Vogue editorials. Photographer Patrick Demarchelier who photographed her for the Italian issue called her his favourite subject.
1992 was to be her year in modelling when she landed a contract with Victoria’s Secret and became a face of Valentino couture and Versace. Later she walked the controversial Gianni Versace ‘Bondage’ show in Milan which made fashion critics take serious note. Demarchelier photographed her again with Walter Chin for the Italian Vogue towards mid-1992.
Keenly involved in helping those less fortunate than herself, Yasmeen has supported breast cancer research fund-raising drives, and also supported a charity for saving Germany’s famous Black Forest. Today she lives with her husband and baby daughter Maya, enjoying a life well away from the media spotlight, and is said to enjoy activities such as rollerblading, skiing and creating art.

Organic gardening is a simple way to ensure that you are growing the highest-quality produce in a sustainable way that is healthy for the plants and the planet. It is one of the oldest methods of cultivation, and the food it will produce is not only healthier for you it’s less expensive to. You may find that it might become the most rewarding hobby, or lifestyle, you have ever undertaken. Organic gardening is a simple healthful way to convert living organisms into carbon compounds in a way that considers the whole of nature and its integral place in that scheme.
Organic gardening uses natural compost and manure to fertilize and grow plants and flowers. Since you will be using natural compost no harmful chemicals or pesticides are used on your plants. Some gardeners are willing to invest in some extras required by organic gardening because it ensures that no harmful pesticides or fungicides will be used. By growing a garden without chemical fertilizers, you will naturally build the soil to support healthy plant life. Chemical fertilizers and additives will, over time, damage the soil’s ability to provide what plants need to resist disease, insect attacks, and stress.Related Posts
Today Preeti Singh sent an email and want to share here vacation information in Madrid, Spain with our readers . She writes, this summer Preeti Singh visited Madrid, Spain on a holiday trip. Preeti believes this was the best trip of her life, her uncle’s family lives in Madrid, meeting and living with them was a fun. Preeti sent these 2 photos from this specific trip, one with her cousin Aasha and second with Aasha’s friend Carona.
Preeti loved the old Madrid, she said Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the huge Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House; the Buen Retiro park, founded in 1631; the imposing 19th-century National Library building (founded in 1712) containing some of Spain’s historical archives; an archaeological museum; and three superb art museums: Prado Museum, which hosts one of the finest art collections in the world, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofa, a museum of modern art, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, housed in the renovated Villahermosa Palace.
Preeti visited Parque del Retiro, formerly the grounds of the palace built for Felipe IV, is Madrid’s most popular park. Its large lake in the middle once staged mini naval sham battles to amuse royalty; these days the more tranquil pastime of pleasure boating is popular. Inspired by London’s crystal palace, the palacio de cristal can be found at the south-eastern end of the park. The Royal Botanic Garden or Real Jardin Botanico was an 18th century creation by Carlos III, it was used as a base for the plant species being collected across the globe. There is an important research facility that started life as a base to develop herbal remedies and to house the species collected from the new-world trips, today it is dedicated to maintaining Europe’s ecosystem.
Farzana is our new subscriber. She wrote an article about Yachting in Caribbean and now want to share some good information about Caribbean and Yachting in Caribbean with us. She says, the Caribbean is a region consisting of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (most of which enclose the sea), and the surrounding coasts. The region is located southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and North America, east of Central America, and to the north of South America.
She more writes, she visited Caribbean on holidays and had great time on sunny beaches & crystal clear waters. One thing that Farzana loved about Caribbean is yachting, she love these life long memories. They traveled and stayed on a luxury yacht. That yacht was so large and so luxurious that you can barely tell it apart from cruise liners. There really is no average price when it comes to yachts; their sizes, designs, and amenities vary so widely that their price ranges are vast. A top-of-the-line yacht can sell for as high as $60 million or more, and the least expensive yachts will still run in the hundreds of thousands. The bigger and more expensive yachts are often owned by companies for throwing parties, entertaining clients, or rewarding successful executives with luxury trips.
What exactly is it about a yacht, other than its size, that so enraptures people? For one thing, yachts are like floating mansions, or at the very least, very nice floating homes. For example, an upper-end yacht can have a living room, family room, several bedrooms, a den, office, library, bar, party room, and even a theater room. When riding on one of these, only the view from the windows, going out on deck, or the occasional rocking would betray the fact that you were actually on a boat.
Though it is true that most people, even those who are fairly successful, cannot afford a yacht, that doesn’t mean that that they can never have a chance to ride on one or maybe even pilot one. Fortunately, for those who are not blessed with enough disposable income to purchase their own yachts, these luxury cruisers can be rented by the hour, by the day, by the week, or for even longer. Many people will rent a yacht for cruising in the ocean or on a lake for a few days and consider it a complete vacation.Related Posts
