Thanks Taz! Though I saw some Tom Ford creeping in. So, you guys think it's OK to keep this thread going? I guess with Yves, even redundancy is merited!

Commercial for YSL Paris perfume.

I have the Rive Gauche version of the famous pink bustier, but it's too big. I'm holding onto it with the irrational hope that it will fit one day.

I haven't seen any, but I'll keep looking. You can also read _Debut_, the book documents the same event.

I'm in heaven (the entire website is worth it, but especially the designer/couture section). I've picked out the YSL:

Luxmode, I think there are newsreels of early shows on the DVD _Yves Saint Laurent: His Life and Times_, which comes as a companion disc to _5 Avenue Marceau 75116 Paris_.

Both for $18.99 on Amazon! Wow, I 've been meaning to get this! Didn't know it was so low cost.

The Legacy of St. Laurent
(The Connection with Dick Gordon—WBUR Boston)

Even the man's initials speak of fame and fashion. YSL. At age 65, the Paris based fashion designer Yves St. Laurent is saying "ca suffit," that's enough. Later this month, 40 years since his first show as the enfant terrible of haute couture, he'll show his last collection. Some in the catty world of fashion say his creativity retired years ago. But others say his legacy will last long after today's designers are forgotten, because he understands what women want: to be sexy and powerful and wear the pants from time to time. It's hard to remember when pants suits weren't chic. Yves St. Laurent made them so. He also gave women the trench coat, the safari look and the see through blouse. Clothes that changed the way we see each other.

WITH:

Hamish Bowles, European editor-at-large for American Vogue Magazine

Valerie Steele, author of "The Corset: A Cultural History" and chief curator for the Museum of the Fashion Institute of Technology

and Nan Kempner, a collector of Yves St. Laurent's designs.

Nan Kempner's "Honey Bee" (metmuseum.org)

Among the most notable pieces in Mrs. Kempner's collection of haute couture is the evening domino by Yves Saint Laurent. In a direct reference to the voluminous evening coats from the golden age of postwar Parisian style, the Saint Laurent version in heavy silk faille merges the sumptuous romanticism of Christian Dior with the sculptural drama of Cristobal Balenciaga.

Cape: yellow silk faille; gown: black silk velvet

Nan's other YSL (metmuseum.org)

Mrs. Kempner's silhouette of preference for formal evening dress was the narrow "column" gown. In addition, she subscribed to the notion of bareness as an aspect of nighttime glamour. Sometimes, this was expressed in a wide, off-the-shoulder or "bateau" design, but more typically it was seen in her advocacy of a plunging front or back neckline. In this gown of elegant simplicity, Mrs. Kempner has selected a dress that inverts her usual pairing of a white bodice or shirt with a black skirt. Yves Saint Laurent's sensual juxtaposition of a black velvet bodice with the liquid drape of ivory silk crepe serves to highlight the sharp "V" of her décolleté in a dramatic "Madame X" contrast.
