If you want to learn more about this talented man, I suggest you read Before the Fall: Lagerfeld, Saint Laurent and Glorious Excess in 1970's Paris by Alicia Drake and watch the haunting documentary, Yves Saint Laurent: His Life and Times, 5 Avenue Marceau 75116 Paris by David Teboul. Au revoir Yves!
In 1967, Yves Saint Laurent created the costumes for Catherine Deneuve for the film "Belle du Jour" and the two became lifelong friends.

Yves was very influenced by art as seen here in his Mondrian dress from 1965.
Bianca Perez Morena de Macias married Mick Jagger while wearing a risqué Yves Saint Laurent white suit at the town hall in the French Mediterranean town of St Tropez in 1971.
