Yves Saint Laurent

The YSL fall winter 2010 show took place right across from the retrospective honoring Yves Saint Laurent at the Petit Palais. The guests lived up to the late great designer’s vision of sophisticated eveningwear.

Big Shouldered Fur, YSL

The almost mannish silhouette of this big shouldered fur goes well with the modern version of YSL’s le smoking – the black silk suit underneath.

Ombre Fur Jacket and Black Silk Dress, Yves Saint Laurent

Another dyed fur – this time in an interesting ombre pattern, paired with a black silk dress.

Gray trousers, YSL show

She is consistently chic, that night in gray tapered trousers and buckle boots – which I believe are Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony?

Black and White Blouse, Yves Saint Laurent

An elaborate black and white jacket peeps out from under her fur coat.

Kate Lanphear at YSL

Kate Lanphear in an ivory lamb fur jacket. Her signature platinum bob with a long, shaggy front is getting imitated by young girls in the fashion set.

Ivory Dress and Cape, YSL

More ivory for spring, this time in a beautiful ruched one-shoulder dress and cape.

Moss Colored Coat, YSL

The long lean silhouette of a sage-colored coat.

Anna Dello Russo at YSL

Anna Dello Russo in a yellow fringed dress – the wind created a Venus de Milo effect.

Crinkle Print Skirt, YSL

Perfect for evening in spring 2010: sheer black stockings. Hers add the finishing touch to an abstract pattern crinkle skirt.

Sequined Headband, YSL

We saw a lot of glittery headbands like this one during fashion week this season. This one works particularly well paired with a masculine shirt and jacket, so as not to go over-the-top princess.

Gold Sequined Dress, YSL

This gorgeous black and gold sequined dress would be the toast of any party.

Black and White, YSL

Cigarette jeans – in black leather on the left and in camo on the right – add an urban sportswear edge to eveningwear.
