Yves Saint Laurent: Théâtre Cinéma Music-Hall Ballet
Fondation Pierre Bergé Yves Saint Laurent

The Foundation's seventh exhibition offers an intimate perspective on the variety of Yves Saint Laurent's creative projects throughout his career, highlighting his vision for dramatics. One of fashion's more interesting opportunities for collaboration, a couturier's creations for the stage and screen can define the performers, refine the director's vision and create iconic looks for fashion history.

Great moments are brought back to life through 17 dresses, as well as film excerpts, photographs and original sketches presented for the first time. Performers include such bright lights as Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour, Arletty in Les Monstres Sacrés, Anny Duperey in Alain Resnais' Stavisky, and Geneviève Page in the 1978 stage production of L'Aigle à Deux Têtes.

Also close friends of Zizi Jeanmaire and Roland Petit, Yves Saint Laurent signed the sets and costumes for Champagne Rosé and Notre-Dame de Paris at the Opera, as well as for Cyrano de Bergerac in 1959. Yves Saint Laurent proves his versatility and artistry.
