New ‘Saint Laurent’ Biopic Gives a Noir Feel To Fashion Icon: VIDEO

Ysl_a

Yves Saint Laurent, the renowned French fashion designer — celebrated for bringing stylish, ready-to-wear clothing to high-end consumers and using non-white models — has an artistic biopic coming out called Saint Laurent.

The trailer is entirely in French, but the editing and camerawork give it the feel of a noir thriller. Another biopic about the famed designer also came out earlier this year.

Laurent and his long-time partner Pierre Bergé joined in a French civil union a few days before Laurent died of a brain tumor. The auction of his estate brought in over $522 million.

Watch the trailer AFTER THE JUMP…

    Stunning to look at but doesn’t scratch beyond the surface of the brilliance of St. Laurent’s designs. A lot of sparring between he and Pierre who approved this version.

    A gay man living at the sumptuous summit of a civilization. Delicious

    I didn’t understand a word but it looks wonderful. Isn’t that all Yves wanted?

    But I do hope there will be subtitles.

    This looks surprisingly not different from “Yves Saint Laurent”, the actor is even using exactly the same voice as the actor in the first film (who, though less handsome, looks more like Saint Laurent than this guy). I believe this film was NOT approved or supported by Bergé, which could mean that there’s some juicier stuff to be seen. As if it mattered. Two biopics in one year, couldn’t they have spread this out a little? Though generally this cast might be more interesting.

    I really need to get out more.

    I watched this film on the plane two days ago, and really enjoyed it. I liked the fact that it is a gay couple’s story extending over a lifetime (vs. just a weekend). Perhaps by consequence, the story is not centred on their sexlife, but on Yves’ ups and downs, and how they support and wrestle with one another through the changes in life and relationship.

    Gaspard Ulliel gets completely naked in THIS version and there is another full-frontal shot that ya’ll need to see according to the Cannes Queer critics and RAFAEL how can YOU have seen “Saint Laurent” by Bonello when it won’t come out in France until September/October?
