Yasmin Le Bon is a bona fide fashion icon, a talent which has been passed on to the next generation with daughter Amber, 23, also pursuing a career on the catwalk.

For Spring/Summer '13, the mother/daughter modelling pair were unveiled as the new faces of high street store Monsoon, but for this season Yasmin, 48 went solo.

In Monsoon's Autumn/Winter '13 campaign, Yasmin wears the overhauled pieces to perfection.

The cult brand is no stranger to supermodel ambassadors with previous spokeswomen including Jodie Kidd, Sophie Dahl, Elizabeth Hurley, Helena Christensen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

"We were thrilled to welcome Yasmin Le Bon, returning once again as the face of our campaign," the brand said in their latest look book.

As for Yasmin's favourite pieces?

"I am really big on 'jardigans. That's part jacket/part cardigan! They're comfortable and practical, but stylish too.

"I find it quite difficult to wear completely sleeveless tops, so just having this little cap sleeve is more flattering."
