Yasmin Le bon becomes face of House of Fraser

Model Yasmin Le Bon has been made the face of House of Fraser, marking the first time that the department store chain has used a celebrity in its advertising.

Le Bon will appear in the retailer’s spring/summer campaign, which has been created by Hooper Galton and breaks on March 5. A review of the retailers advertising is due to start later this year and the incumbent is expected to repitch.
