“La mode passe, le style reste” – Yves Saint Laurent
On August 1st, Yves Saint Laurent would have turned 80. It is thus the perfect time to get to know the late designer a little more.
Here are 10 facts you (maybe) didn’t know about Yves Saint Laurent!
1. Yves Saint Laurent was born on August 1st, 1936 in Oran, Algeria. He passed away at his Paris home on June 1st 2008, after a long period of ill health. He was 71. As a mark of respect, all YSL stores in the world closed their doors for the duration of his funeral [1,2,3].
So sorry for the long absence, but things have just been so hectic! I hope your past few weeks were better than mine.
But something did manage to cheer me up: le Festival de Cannes. Some of the most memorable looks happened during the festival’s past editions. So I was very excited to see what was coming up this year!
This week, several looks from our favorite fashionistas caught my attention. And all of them are quite easy to copy, so thank you Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, and Sarah Hyland to give us actual, reachable inspiration!
The first outfit is from Emma Roberts, who mastered the airport look like a pro. She rocked an all black look, a black and white striped scarf and added a touch of color with a beautiful red Longchamp bag. Check out also the Balenciaga shoes!!!! Love it!
