Yves Saint Laurent Passes Away at 71

>> Legendary couturier Yves Saint Laurent passed away Sunday evening at his home following a long battle with brain cancer, joined in his final moments by his longtime business partner Pierre Berge and muse Betty Catroux. 

Although it is well-known that he has been in ill health for a while now — he had been bedridden recently and was admitted to a Paris hospital last week in a coma — the death still comes as a shock, especially because it marks the end of a generation that made Paris the fashion capital of the world. 

Thank you, M. Saint Laurent, for all of your contributions, including Le Smoking, the trapeze dress, and safari jackets, and rest in peace.
