The London Paper
Hairy Encounter for Supermodel
8 February 2007
YASMIN LE BON must get hundreds of invitations to fashion shows, but a recent card that popped through her letterbox must have been rather insulting.
The supermodel wife of Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon received an invitation to a fashion event at Cafe de Paris next week, but in a change from the usual Fashion Week shows Yasmin goes to, this one is specifically for hairy women.
The controversial show is all for comedian Shazia Mirza's new BBC documentary, in which she charts a year in her life when she bins the razors and the sessions at the beauty salons.
Hairy Londoners can audition on Monday morning at the Coventry Street club to take part in the show and 100 hirsute ladies will strut down the catwalk that evening.
"There's going to be jaws dropping on the front row", a source close to the organisers tells theBuzz. "While all the attention for women is always on weight, this is one taboo that's never spoken about."
We think that it sounds like a sight for sore eyes!
