I know this is kind of out of place here in my blog but I'm a great admirer of this legendary fashion designer. Why? He revolutionized the way women should look. Yves Saint Laurent redefined how a modern woman should look by designing elegant pansuits for women. So women can now wear pants thanks to him and Coco Chanel. Don't get me wrong I like dresses or skirts but pants are definitely more comfy!

Yves Saint Laurent died in his Paris home on Sunday. The reclusive French maestro, who had retired from haute couture in 2002 after four decades at the top of his trade, had been ill for some time. Saint Laurent was widely considered the last of a generation that included Christian Dior and Coco Chanel and made Paris the fashion capital of the world. A design genius, Laurent designed instant classics that remains stylish even decades after.

Pierre Berge, Saint Laurent's business partner, praised YSL as the the man who gave women power through fashion. He just didn't think of beauty and aesthetics but wanted to make a social statement. In his own words, Saint Laurent said he felt "fashion was not only supposed to make women beautiful, but to reassure them, to give them confidence, to allow them to come to terms with themselves."
