Goodbye to Another Artistic Legend

I was never a haute couture fan but this man definitely spent a career making women feel beautiful, sexy and powerful, on and off the runway.

PARIS (AP)—Legendary designer Yves Saint Laurent, who reworked the rules of fashion by putting women into elegant pantsuits that came to define how modern women dressed, died Sunday evening, a longtime friend and associate said. He was 71.

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.”-Yves Saint Laurent
