Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon fell in love with his wife Yasmin's face when he spotted her in a modelling agency's book.

The Rio singer cites that moment as one of the most rock 'n' roll things he has ever done - but, instead of loving and leaving the beauty in the style of a true rocker, they married in a romantic Christmas wedding in 1985 and have been together ever since.

The 47-year-old says: "I picked a girl out of a model agency portfolio - and ended up getting married to her!"
