Paris, 1957. 21 year old Yves Saint Laurent is catapulted to international stardom as the successor to Christian Dior, only to be subjected to the public humiliation of being fired a few years later. Refusing to succumb to his critics, Yves creates the YSL fashion house arid presents to the world the first ever 'ready to wear' collection, shocking the world of couture. It becomes one of the most famous brands in fashion and despite his own doubts and demons, Yves manages to turn the sleepy world of fashion upside down.
A disappointing biopic

The movie covers only part of the life of Yves Saint Laurent, going from a shy individual to being dependent on drugs and alcohol. His fashion designs are shown to great effect but the movie itself is disappointingly bland. He surely could not have been the shallow individual depicted in this movie.
