The dancing star of Yves Saint Laurent: 1962-1999

Truly happy and content people never create master pieces. They make beautiful things, eat toasted bagels, drink mochaccino and take scheduled walks on the beach with a harmlessly eccentric golden retriever. 

The masterpieces, the take-my-breath-away creations are conceived within troubled minds that experienced love and joy, pain and loss, betrayal and hope, fuelled by numerous cups of espresso and cigarette smoke. They move me, then and now an will continue to touch the fibres of my soul as the time goes by. 

Yves Saint Laurent' work is something I count among them because his genius was never about talent only, but the inner demons and "the chaos that gave birth to a dancing star" - in fact, an entire constellation - radiant, inspirational, unique.

Yves always meant Paris to me: the place, the spirit, the style. The feeling of love and ache that, when combined with my clumsy metaphors and precious tear-outs of Saint Laurent's oeuvre, would transform into yet another embrace for the city of lights.

I then thought about the opening images and chose Linda because that smile and the way the feathers moved made me think of a burst of joy, the dancing star. Told you I love metaphors!

  5. Natalia, you are RIGHT! He was a genius! I watched the documentary you suggested of him a couple of years ago. It takes life experiences, both good bad and super ugly to "birth" these kind of things. When you have gone through something, you're able to produce something greater and at a deeper depth.
