This year we’ve already has one biopic of Yves Saint Laurent, which arrived on DVD in the UK a couple of weeks ago (and you can read our review here). However that’s not the only one, as another, simply title Saint Laurent, is on its way, and the trailer has now arrived.
While Yves Saint Laurent starring Pierre Niney in the title role was an ‘official’ movie, backed by the fashion designer’s lover, Pierre Bergé, and using clothes from the vault of YSL, Saint Laurent is a more independent affair.
The film stars Gaspard Ulliel (Hannibal Rising) in the title role, with Jérémie Renier (In Bruges) as Bergé. The likes of Louis Garrel (The Dreamers), Lea Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Colour), and Helmut Berger also star.
The movie, which charts Saint Laurent’s rise to the top of the fashion world, recently premiered at Cannes and will be in cinemas later this year. Unfortunately the trailer is in French, but if you don’t speak the language you can bask in the style. [Read more…]
