Goofs

YSL's black leather Beat collection is shown as having been created in 1964 in the film, suggesting YSL was a leader of the Mod look of the mid 1960s, but in fact his Beat collection was done in 1960 and was too youthful for Dior clientele at the time and the main reason YSL was fired from Dior.

Lust For Life
8 February 2017 | by Sissy ChouSee all my reviews

This movie is much better than I expected. I don't have much interest in haute couture, but I was gripped and the clothes whether on the catwalk or just in general were to die for. It's an awesome and skillfully made biopic that's really addictive and captures Yves Saint Laurent crazy life and pure genius as a self-destructive artist in a beautiful way.

In a career spanning fifty years YSL changed women's fashion, but at the movie's core is Saint Laurent's emotional passion, and the dynamics of the love story between him and Bergé. Lets say there wasn't too much loyalty in the bedroom but the movie sure captures the story of the tortured genius and the partner who kept him on track.

The movie is beautiful in every detail and the acting is exceptional throughout. Pierre Niney is outstanding as Laurent. He' s a freaking talented actor and I cannot believe that Yves himself would have been disappointed with the portrayal. His performance really made me feel for the guy. Guillaume Gallienne and Charlotte Le Bon are awesome too. I highly recommend this movie. There is something about French movies, even when they're not awesome, they're still great ☺
