Yves Saint Laurent

So this was the last movie of the Film Festival that I got to go to and it was an improvement on the earlier one of the day.  Telling the story of Yves Saint Laurent, from his early days at Dior through to the seventies, it was  a look at not only his fashion side, but his vulnerable moments and breakdowns.  I did wonder what the post school girls who attended thought of the movie, as it was not only centred on his fashion designs but also on his relationship with his long term partner and other men.

Still we enjoyed seeing the dresses and the music, and it was an interesting little film.  The absolute wealth of some of these designers is staggering - the huge country houses, the antiques, the parties.
