The Unapproved YSL Film Trailer Has Hit YouTube, and It’s Spicy

-------

Remember that other Yves Saint Laurent biopic that was announced last year? The one that didn’t get Pierre Bergé’s seal of approval? Well, the trailer for the film, which stars Gaspard Ulliel as the designer and Léa Seydoux as Loulou de la Falaise, hit YouTube today. And, featuring one minute and 50 seconds of sex, snakes, and cigarettes, it’s decidedly racy. In all seriousness, the latest movie explores the darker side of Saint Laurent’s life and relationships, which is likely why it didn’t get the thumbs-up from Bergé. But the approved flick, titled Yves Saint Laurent, didn’t really get the thumbs-up from critics and received mixed reviews. Somewhat ironically, the unapproved film, like the modern-day incarnation of the fashion house, is simply called Saint Laurent. Watch the trailer, above.

From Lanvin to Saint Laurent, Fashion Can’t Get Enough of Edie Campbell

Edie Campbell

Without a doubt, Edie Campbell is fashion’s muse-of-the-moment. Coming off of several seasons of stellar editorial and runway work, the It Brit model’s star continues to rise this summer with a deluge of recently released campaigns. Last week alone, Campbell debuted in ads for Alexander McQueen and Lanvin. The latter’s Tim Walker-lensed shoot was a true family affair: Campbell posed alongside her mom, Sophie Hicks; dad, Roddy; mullet-rocking brother Arthur; younger sister Olympia; and her oft-Instagrammed horse, Dolly.

In addition to being a mainstay on the Saint Laurent catwalk, Campbell is also the new face of YSL Beauty’s Black Opium fragrance and has landed yet another Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign. Other recent work includes Bottega Veneta’s Fall ’14 series lensed by David Sims, as well as ads for Hugo Boss and Sandro. Sweetening the deal is Campbell’s latest Vogue Italia group cover (in which she premieres a freshly lightened blond shag) photographed by Steven Meisel. With her versatile, aristocratic look and wry sense of humor, it’s no wonder the industry can’t seem to get enough Edie right now. We approve.

Shop the Look: Glitter and Be Glam

Many women have childhood memories of dressing up in glistening princess gowns straight out of a Disney movie—but why should kids have all the fun? We’re currently coveting glittery, gunmetal statement pieces. Opt for a dusting of sparkle with eye-catching accessories, like an ombré pump or vintage-inspired jewels. If you’re going all in, avoid the seventies discotheque look by keeping your silhouettes simple, like the glam-rock darlings at Marc Jacobs Resort ’15 and Saint Laurent Fall ’14. Their glittering dolly-bird shift dresses were the perfect mix of playful and sexy. Shop our favorite sparklers by Jimmy Choo, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and more, below.

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Cosmo Night satin dress, $598, available at bloomingdales.com

Editor Obsessions: Saint Laurent Original High-Waisted Skinny Jean

-------

BLOG_dyptichEvery day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

I was a slow convert to Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent. Lately I’d been coming around—Cherry Glazerr’s “Had Ten Dollaz,” which played on a hypnotic loop at the show in February, became one of my favorite tunes of 2014—but what won me over once and for all is this black-and-white ad. Come September, I want to look exactly like model Grace H. does in this Slimane-lensed picture: sharp blazer; retro blouse; and skinny, belted jeans with a super-high waistband. I’ve never spent remotely close to $575 on denim and I haven’t worn a belt with jeans since the nineties, but I’m considering it for these babies.

The Pierre Bergé-Sanctioned YSL Biopic Gets its NYC Debut

-------

YVES SAINT LAURENT BEAUTÉ and THE CINEMA SOCIETY Host the After Party for THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY'S YvesFor French director Jalil Lespert’s new biopic on the legendary Yves Saint Laurent, the designer’s longtime partner, Pierre Bergé, granted unparalleled access to the icon’s original creations, including more than 5,000 dresses, 15,000 accessories, and 35,000 sketches. But working with the archival pieces had its limitations. “No one could sweat in the dresses, and it basically meant no moving,” said Marie de Villepin, who plays the designer’s muse Betty Catroux, at last night’s Cinema Society screening of Yves Saint Laurent, hosted by The Weinstein Company and Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette. “I’m complaining now, but how amazing is it to get to wear those museum pieces that got pulled out for the first time ever just to be in this movie?”

While the film showcases YSL’s designs—from the famous Mondrian dresses to his signature Le Smokings, it also sheds light on the man behind them. His battle with severe depression, as well as drug and sex addictions, made his relationship with Bergé a volatile one. (This film, however, has Bergé’s stamp of approval, unlike the other movie about the designer that recently debuted at the Cannes Film Festival.) “It was the price of being a genius,” Lespert said. “I didn’t want to make a movie about his dark side, but it was important to show that he had these struggles.”

After the screening at MoMA, the movie’s star Pierre Niney, Harvey Weinstein, and Martha Stewart, among others, regrouped at Beautique on West 58th Street. Though 83-year-old Bergé wasn’t in attendance, Niney reported, “The first time Pierre saw it, he was in tears. If the guy who shared a life with him believes in the Yves I did, that’s enough for me.”
