I think regardless of how comical the poster looks, the resemblance is spot on, especially in terms of that awkward smile Yves used to have plastered on his face.

When I first saw the image preview on tumblr I thought it was a joke. I won't completely dismiss this yet over a bad poster.

I don't agree. The thing about YSL was that he was a self-involved narcissist - and that, the image shows - but he also had feeling - a deep heart-felt feeling that this "Parisian Psycho" image is very far from grasping at all. I don't think anyone involved in making this image understands this....

^I think if you saw documentaries of Yves in his later years and his awkwardness before his shows you may see my point.

I somehow don't see this as an official poster, just a mere teaser.

I think if references were to be bought up, Audrey Tautou looked nothing like Coco Chanel in Coco Before Chanel... as a comparison, you are never going to get the feeling exactly right.

^Yeah, still it would be nice to depict YSL as something other than your average psycopathic moron...
