The ensemble sported a boat neck and clung to her incredible figure and she added extra height to her frame with a pair of perspex heels.
Yazmin accentuated her features with a gorgeous palette of makeup and swept the brunette’s locks high into a bun.
She kept her accessories simple and let the outfit speak for itself. She wore a silver bracelet and carried a matching metal clutch.

‘It was the lowest I’ve ever been in my life’: It comes after Yazmin detailed her battle with mental health when she shared a video of her recovery in hospital after the fatal crash in Turkey that killed friend Jake McLean
Despite taking place on Monday evenings, the ceremony will be broadcast on ITV on Thursday 27 October at 8pm.
Yazmin took to Instagram last Monday to share details about her tumultuous mental health battle in support of World Mental Health Day.
She describes her recovery from the traumatic crash that killed her boyfriend Jake McLean earlier this year and described it as the “lowest I’ve ever been in my life.”
Yazmin accompanied the post with a video of her time in the hospital as she recovered from the harrowing ordeal, which saw her sever an artery and nerve in her right arm.

She explained that the video was made by her mother Lisa, who filmed her daily while she was in the hospital to send to her father Hamid as updates on her recovery.
Penning: “Last week my mom shared this video that she sent to my dad while I was in the hospital while keeping him updated on a daily basis. I didn’t know it was taken at the time, but I’m glad I have this to see how far I’ve come.”
Yazmin encouraged her followers to “get through it all” and talked about her mental health problems after the crash.
Opening up: The reality star shared that while she wasn’t aware the videos were being shot, she’s happy to look back on it
“This was me at the lowest level I’ve ever been in my life. Mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. I’m sharing this today not just for World Mental Health Day, but to show you that with the right help and support, you can and will get through anything.
“Something I’ve struggled with since the accident is people say they don’t like sharing their problems with me because they seem small or silly in comparison. But no matter how big or small something is, if it bothers you or upsets you, it is a problem and important.’

“I want to encourage you all to talk more. Diary more. Share your feelings. & MOST IMPORTANTLY, if this is how you feel, take a moment to just BREATH. Trust me, it helps. I want you to live each day as positively as possible and appreciate the little things.
“I’ve had some really bad days since the accident, but I’m trying to put on a brave face and post something positive. On my worst days you just don’t hear from me at all.
“But World Mental Health Day got me thinking that maybe I should be more real here and share those times too, which is why I shared this today.”
In conclusion, “I had days where I thought I would never feel normal again. We all struggle at some point in our lives and we can all help each other a little more. Let’s be a little kinder.
“So today I want you to take a few minutes to think about YOU and your mental health. Ask yourself if I’m okay? Really? If the answer is no or if there is even a slight hesitation, I recommend that you talk to someone (a medical professional, family, friend, or helpline).
“I now have therapy once a week with a wonderful lady called Sandra. She really changed my life. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come and you all should be too. If you are going through something terrible right now, know that you are loved and that it will not last forever. Love Yaz #worldmentalhealthday’.
Jake was killed when his blue Mercedes E-class sedan crashed, while Yazmin was seriously injured after breaking her own arm to escape the wreckage, while Jake was unconscious in the driver’s seat.
The crash occurred around 4:30 a.m. and investigators determined that the car lurched about 70 feet over a left turn and landed in a ravine nearly 10 feet lower.
