Yves Saint Laurent film is finally here and it looks pretty fantastic. There are two films due out this year chronicling the life of the late great designer, but this one, titled Saint Laurent is the unofficial version, directed by Bertrand Bonello.
According to Imdb, the film will be released September 24 and Gaspard Ulliel will star as the designer, alongside Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé (Laurent’s lover and partner) and Léa Seydoux as the legendary Loulou de la Falaise. Also making an appearance is model Aymeline Valade, who will play model (fancy that!) Betty Catroux.
The whole trailer is en français, but that doesn’t make it any less riveting for the non-French-speaking audience. The movie seems to cover all the glamour and drama we imagine of the designer’s life, plus–snakes… lots of ’em. In Saint Laurent’s lap. Yes, we shuddered quite a bit when we saw those shots.
See the whole trailer for yourself below. And to all the French speakers out there, a little translation is appreciated, although not for “J’ai crée un monstre” and “Je t’aime, Jacques” – we fully understood those lines.
