Naked Biopic truth of Yves St. Laurent Hedonistic Life featured at Cannes Film Festival.

yves st. laurent french fashion designerIt might come as a surprise in a film about a deceased fashion designer who spent vast amounts of his life thinking about couture, but one of the most, if not the most, memorable scenes in the new biopic, Saint Laurent, shows a young Yves Saint Laurent completely naked as he walks towards his partner, Pierre Bergé (clad in a black satin dressing gown that reveals his tanned behind), before the young lovers jump on the bed for a romp. Despite the provocative nature of this and other racy sex scenes in the film, which was directed by Bertrand Bonello (of Le Pornographe fame) and premiered at the Festival de Cannes on Saturday, the real controversy surrounding the production has to do with the clothing. What else!

Early on, the Bonello production incurred the wrath of Saint Laurent’s long-term partner Pierre Bergé, who threatened in WWD to sue the film if it copied any of the designer’s outfits—a bit hard to avoid when making a coming-of-age movie about YSL’s life and work.  The filmmakers, on their part, have accused Bergé of distributing letters to parties associated with the film to try to stop it. To this end, Bergé has refused to allow Bonello’s team to consult the brand’s archives. He also publically endorsed another biopic, Yves Saint Laurent, which debuted in January and was directed by Jalil Lespert. The Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent lent the rival film a reported 77 vintage outfits and Bergé helped conduct a scene depicting the legendary 1976 Ballet Russes fashion show. The resulting headlines in the French press declared war between the two films.

©ourtesy of  graziadaily.co.uk

New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come. January has flown past us quicker than Mo Farah, but we’re ready to pack our cold-weather kit and get FROWing. There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

1: New York Fashion Week: Kim Kardashian and Kanye FRONT ROW Action.

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.

2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.

A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.

rebecca torresBacked by House of Fraser, Glasgow Clyde fashion graduate, Rebecca Torres is looking to the future for her next big event during London Fashion Week. 

Rebecca torres x1After studying at Glasgow Clyde College, Rebecca Torres has shot to success after being named by Vogue as “the one to watch” after Asos bought her entire collection in 2011, “They asked if they could show it [the collection] to Asos,” Torres comments after receiving a call from an old university associate, “The next thing I knew Asos wanted to buy my entire collection.” Torres was put on the website as her own person rather than by Asos which meant she started receiving calls frequently which is what prompted her to make her own website with the help of her brother.
