New York Times blog The Moment dug up this footage from YouTube featuring the late, great YSL as a young man. The best lines? When asked about her first meeting with Yves Saint Laurent, the interviewee answers, "He was no Leonardo Da Vinci, but he was a lovely designer. And a man with unique ideas… a baby!"
Other excellent insights from the film include this one… The interviewer asks if, at 16, YSL is "one of the greats," and the woman answers, "I’m almost certain." Well, the whole world is certain now.
See the beautiful old clip in its entirety below, and see more YSL footage here.
