Rich fashion, 11 November 2010
Author: stensson from Stockholm, Sweden

It begins with a totally sick Christies auction, which could make any Tea Party member go communist. Yves Saint-Laurent's lover, or shall we say lifetime love, is selling their furniture for fantasy prizes. It's a beautiful home, which certainly could have remained a museum.

We follow YSL through his career, starting as an assistant to Christian Dior. It develops into a life full of fame, celebration, meeting the most well-known people in the world, but also of despair and depression. A life he wants to end many times.

Upperclass problems if anything was. But you can't help getting touched by the destiny of this very shy and nervous person. A terrible snob with kind eyes.
