Early life and career

Yasmeen Ghauri was born in Montreal, Quebec to a German mother, Linda, and a Pakistani father, Moin Ghauri. Ghauri had a difficult childhood, and was bullied by her classmates at school. Ghauri was reportedly working at a McDonald's restaurant at the age of 17 when she was discovered by Montreal hairdresser and artistic director of Platine Coiffure, Edward Zaccharia. Soon after her discovery, there was a shift in mentality within the fashion industry, moving from predominantly Nordic-looking models to more "ethnic" models, a trend which Ghauri helped to inspire.

Despite her parents' disapproval, Ghauri actively pursued a modeling career, premiering in Milan and Paris before moving to New York in 1990. Here, she was noticed by fashion critics and labels alike. The New York Times described her runway walk as a "ball-bearing swivel of her hips". Her appearance prompted part of what is now termed in fashion the "Canadian invasion".

When Ghauri stepped out of the Yves Saint Laurent show in 1996 at the last minute, speculations arose that she was retiring. She did indeed retire to start a family with her husband, Ralph Bernstein, and now has a daughter, Maia, and a son, Victor.
