Symposium on Yves Saint Laurent, Eternal Style at the De Young Museum

Such an eventful November so far lets start with the 1st. My sweetheart Paulo took me to the YSL exhibit at the De Young Museum for my birthday. The lecture included Vogue's Hamish Bowles, Florence Müller and Farid Chenoune. Each gave a lecture on different stages of Yves Saint Laurent work. There is so much about him that I didn't know. I regrettably missed the introduction by John Buchanan and Pierre Bergé. It was pouring rain with no parking in sight! I was excited to hear that a book signing was to take place. My lovely purchased the book for me and off I went to meet these fabulous people. The book signing was populated by the likes of Tatiana Sorokko, Betty Catroux and Dodie Rosenkrans. It was an incredible honor to meet the three speakers and attain their autograph. The exhibition was fantastic! I never new how varied and groundbreaking Yves Saint Laurent was. These clothes truly belong in a museum. They are such masterful works. This was by far the most memorable birthday gift. Thank you so much Paulo, I love you!
