An upcoming film depicting the biography of luxury designer
Yves Saint Laurent will star the French actor Gaspard Ulliel. You may recognize Ulliel, who will play the designer, as the face of Chanel's male fragrance, Blue, or perhaps from a Longchamp campaign fo which he appeared alongside Kate Moss. He also played a young Hannibal Lecter in Hannibal Rising
and recently acted in the historical drama The Princess of Montpensie.
"Saint Laurent," which was first announced at this year's Cannes Festival, will depict the designer's golden years from the mid-sixties through 1976's seminal Russian collection, and will go into production next spring.
