Farewell to a legend

The funeral for Yves Saint Laurent will be held in Paris today. Well respected in the industry and regarded as one of the most iconic French designers, along with Coco Chanel and Christian Dior, Saint Laurent passed away on Sunday after a long battle with brain cancer. Over 1000 attendees are expected to attend the funeral and pay tribute to the late designer. Among those expected are Stefano Pilati, Valentino, John Galliano, Giorgio Armani, Huber de Givenchy, Alber Elbaz, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gautier, Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel and Kenzo Takada. Several of his past muses are also expected, including Catherine Deneuve, Claudia Schiffer and Laetitia Casta. The service will be held at the Saint-Roche church on the exclusive Rue Saint-Honore. In tribute to the designer, all YSL boutiques worldwide will be closed during the ceremony.
