Love me Forever...Or Never!

Happy Birthday, to an absolute GENIUS.

 As Laurence Benaim so elequoently wrote: ( Yves saint Laurent ) "Sent out an invitation to all women to keep what they hold most precious : their difference. His work is a masterful lesson in seduction, in love and in attitude.There is nothing little, nothing hampered, nothing pettily impractacle or narcissistic in his dresses. It is rather like a whispered caress: "How can I help you?" beyond his clothes, he has left promises, the fantastic energy of tone of all the colors in the world. "

As a side note: Beauty through diversity! A far cry from the models used today!

Helping Hand...

Can anyone identify this hat? Screen cap from the Movie "Portfolio" (1983) also known as "The look" directed by Robert Guralnick. My guess... possibly, Pierre Cardin?
