Yves Saint Laurent at the Petit Palais

It's been a while since I've been to the Petit Palais, and I'd forgotten how stunning the palace is. Even more stunning, though, is the YSL Retrospective that opened today. Over 300 couture pieces from the innovative designer are on display, ranging from early pant suits to the famous "Smoking" [Tuxedos], to gowns, gowns, and more gowns. An absolutely gorgeous retrospective of Monsieur Saint Laurent's talent, and kudos to the museum for designing such a magnifique show. My advice? Go early in the day, have a nibble in the cafe's garden, and buy your tickets beforehand to avoid the queue.

YSL at the Petit Palais, until August 29, 2010

Fashion designing is really an art and a huge industry to have!
Petit Palais is a great museum in Paris and I guess the item will be displayed for the universal Exhibition.

I just got tickets to this and cannot wait! I'll be there next week and I've heard it's incredible. Can't wait to see it, any special pieces I should spend more than an hour looking at? What's not to love about YSL.....

Whoa. What a big bow for a dress. My wife recently found an interest in fashion, and I find the designs fascinating. :D I love your writing style. Keep it up! :)
