Fashion World Smack Down: The Catfight Between Designer Hedi Slimane and Fashion Writer Cathy Horyn Rages On

You know how sometimes you get in those fights that are so old and obtuse that you can't even remember what they were originally about? Well, that's exactly the kind of thing in which Yves St. Laurent designer Hedi Slimane and New York Times fashion columnist Cathy Horyn are currently embroiled. I guess something like…

Saint Laurent Paris Chooses An Unlikely New Campaign Face

We have substantial reason to believe that Hedi Slimane, designer, photographer, and newly minted creative director at Yves Saint Laurent, lives by the mantra "go big or go home." There was no question that the former Dior Homme boss would give the historic French house a firm shake-up once he landed the coveted position early…

French Artist Sculpts A 330-Pound Cube Out Of Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick

Leave it to the French to come up with a fresh, creative, avant-garde use for a practical product from one of their most iconic brands: conceptual artist Fabrice Hyber crafted a 330-pound, one-meter cube, titled "1m3 de Beauté" (or "One Cubic Meter of Beauty") of solid Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade…

Court Ruling Protects Louboutin’s Fancy Red Soles

Thanks to Christian Louboutin's lawsuit, today we all have the chance to read a very serious court ruling in which a judge makes reference to that ubiquitous and kind of terrible fashion term, "pop of color." It all started last year when Louboutin claimed that a pair of red-soled heels by Yves Saint Laurent infringed…

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Gets Social With A Facebook-Inspired Shadow Palette

Is this really happening? Have I stepped into a warped alternate reality in which Yves Saint Laurent (or shall I say, Saint Laurent Paris) deigns itself to something … low-budget? Even a little bit … tacky? I'll break the news to you, very slowly, and keep quiet now so we don't have poor Yves rolling…

Lana Del Rey Debuts Mulberry Bag And Beauty Secrets At LFW

Lana Del Rey is making big, big strides, if not in the music stratosphere then in the fashion world. Mulberry's Autumn 2012 collection strode down the runway in London yesterday, and viewers caught the first glimpse of Lana's new eponymous bag. Yes, that's right — the brand that coined the ever-lusted-after Alexa, as in Chung,…

Benjamin Millepied Dances In The Street

No, this is not how professional dancer Benjamin Millepied, aka Natalie Portman's fiance and baby daddy, walks down the street every day. Just once in a while. Like last Friday, when he was photographed in New York, shooting an ad for Yves Saint Laurent newest men’s fragrance. Which makes sense, since his lady is the…

YSL’s Men’s Sneaker Promo Video, AKA Hot Guys Standing Around

YSL has just come out with this promo video for its new line of men's sneakers. With the cheesy video techniques and pumping electro music, the clip is kind of hilarious—something we'd imagine running in the background of "Zoolander." Maybe they should have just called this "Guys-too-hot-for-their-own-good Standing Around in Sneakers Looking Hot." Blue Steel!

Next In Nails: YSL’s Punchy French Mani

For the past few years, the French manicure has been on the style fence as a slightly tacky favorite. We predict that Yves Saint Laurent's "couture manicure" nail polish set will cause a trend wave and completely refresh the traditional manicure. (Of course it would take a Frenchie to make the style chic again ...

Here’s A Panda With Enviable Fashion Sense

Most people keep their love of animals and fashion separate (except for the morons who created these disturbing ads). But for Chinese art student, Ben Liu, the two go hand in hand in a perfectly adorable way. He created Benda, a panda with style and class, not to mention a closet full of Yves Saint…

Do You Speak Fashion? Let Us Translate.

When it comes to highbrow fashion, even we get a bit lost when it comes to reading the obtuse critiques of fashion journalists or hearing the vague, but supposedly deep, inspirations from designers. Today, the Guardian proudly calls out the incoherent information fashion designers spit out to "explain" their collections. And quite rightly, seeing a…

Quick Pic: Kate Moss Forgot To Wear Her Nippies

Kate Moss clearly missed the memo regarding pasties and Nippies being so hot right now. Always the trendsetter, she opted for a more "natural" look for her front row appearance at Yves Saint Laurent's Spring 2010 show. And it looks like it was cold in there, too. [Paris, 10/6/09]…

Kate Moss Stars In Totally Hot New YSL Parisienne Commercial

Whoever says Kate Moss doesn't have it going on anymore is dead wrong. This new ad for Yves Saint Laurent's Parisienne fragrance in which she stars is scorching hot. Frankly, I don't even know what Kate is doing there, but it makes me want to buy a bottle immediately. [Fashion Copious]…

Products To Keep Your Mug Matte

While you'd love to achieve that dewy look in the summer, when it's 90-plus degrees out, most of the time, "dewy" turns into "drenched in sweat." There are two solutions for beating this beauty dilemma: become a hermit who never leaves her climate-controlled house, or invest in some anti-shine products that will keep your face…

The Daily Hotness: Yves Saint Laurent, 1936-2008

French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent died yesterday of a brain tumor at the age of 71. YSL epitomized crazy, chic, snooty (and I mean that in a good way) French style and pioneered the lady pantsuit. If we were still using the term, we would call him fierce. [Bloomberg.com]…
