Part Pakistani, part German, and all Canadian, the Montreal-born-and-raised Yasmeen Ghauri was one of the top models of the early 1990s.
And that was a big deal at the time, as the modeling profession began to produce more divas than stars. Yasmeen Ghauri was a star, by all means, as the above photo from Cosmopolitan's October 1992 issue demonstrates.
She was a spokesmodel for Chanel, Christian Dior, Valentino, and Anne Klein at about the same time, and she appeared on the cover of Elle and in editorials for the British and Italian editions of Vogue.
And by 1996, after about six years in the spotlight, it was all over. She retired to raise a family . . . at the ripe old age of 25. Like Marciano - Rocky, not Georges - she knew when to quit and she went out on top.
Fun fact: Yasmeen Ghauri's first major appearance anywhere was in the promotional video for Elton John's single "Sacrifice," where she was paired with singer Chris Isaak. She was not yet twenty.
