Scroll down to see celebrities wearing designer clothing and shoes by Saint Laurent Paris, a luxury fashion house founded in 1961 by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé.

In June 2012, Hedi Slimane changed the name of Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent Paris as part of his makeover for the label.

The French photographer and fashion designer took over from Stefano Pilati as the fashion house’s new creative director earlier the same year. In April 2016, Hedi Slimane was succeeded by Anthony Vaccarello as creative director of Saint Laurent Paris.

How to pronounce Yves Saint Laurent?

The correct way to say his name is Eve san law-ron. The ‘T’ in both Saint and Laurent is barely audible. Also, don’t sound either “n” too strongly.

If you’re looking for an easy way out, just say YSL.

How did Yves Saint Laurent die?

Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, professionally known as Yves Saint-Laurent, died on June 1, 2008, of brain cancer at his residence in Paris. Just 71 years old at the time of his death, he was given a Catholic funeral at Église Saint-Roch in Paris.
