sense of style and fresh out­look on life. By Haida Yu­sof.

Yas­min Farah Khan re­ceives us in a ca­sual grey top, jeans, and barely any makeup on as we ar­rived at her place. It’s prac­ti­cally her uni­form at home—nofrills, no-fuss, and a brief in­sight into her ev­ery­day life. The 19-year-old is warm, bub­bly, and a lit­tle shy at first, es­pe­cially when con­fronted with the thought of be­ing dolled up for the shoot. “My last edi­to­rial ap­pear­ance was when I was 3 years old!” she quipped, as her en­thu­si­as­tic mother, Tanya Khan, shared a pic­ture of her, fea­tured in a 1999 Melium book­let. De­spite her ini­tial reser­va­tions about be­ing in front of the cam­era, Yas­min, the grand­daugh­ter of Dato’ Sri Ak­bar Khan of BRDB Group, is bold in many other ways, pos­sess­ing a keen in­ter­est in fashion and a thirst for adventure—she’s about to em­bark on a back­pack­ing trip across Asia. Hav­ing a stylish step-grand­mother like Dato’ Sri Farah Khan doesn’t hurt ei­ther. “My grand­fa­ther has al­ways placed an im­por­tance in look­ing well put to­gether and el­e­gant, while I’ve al­ways ad­mired my grand­mother’s ef­fort­less style and abil­ity to look chic, even when she’s loung­ing around by the pool in Bali,” Yas­min says, beam­ing with pride. The mar­ket­ing and busi­ness stu­dent’s eclec­tic and re­fresh­ing sense of style could also be largely at­trib­uted to her parental fig­ures—the price­less handme-downs they’ve shared with her are a cause for envy. From the prePeter Dun­das Pucci dresses to vin­tage Chris­tian Lacroix dresses in kalei­do­scopic colours; her wardrobe leaves us in awe. “I love what Ric­cardo Tisci has done for Givenchy. His melan­cholic, Neo-Gothic ap­proach has given Givenchy

Yas­min’s love for easy, breezy pieces takes prece­dence in her dayto-day looks

Back in Malaysia, sum­mer dresses are sta­ples, with gold-toned ac­ces­sories to make it all pop
