The top Brit models of today tend to go for a deathly pail, super-skinny look.

But Yasmin Le Bon, one of the original 'Supers', showed the younger generation how it was done tonight at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition VIP View.

The ever-youthful model looked sensation with golden skin, a glowing complexion and effortless style.

Yasmin 47, looked gorgeous in a strapless purple maxi dress which featured an eye-catching pattern.

She carried a matching clutch bag and kept her gold jewellery simple.

Yasmin completed the looked with casual ponytail and a slick of red lipstick.

She attended with rocker husband Simon, who went low-key in a white T-shirt, blazer and jeans.

Yasmin's healthy and laid-back appearance was in stark contrast to some of the other, fashion-forward attendees.
