  1. Brings to mind something Jean Cocteau said: "Art produces ugly things which frequently become beautiful with time. Fashion, on the other hand, produces beautiful things which always become ugly with time"...:)...the best of both worlds here...Nice post Mademoiselle S.!

  2. Inspiration or plagiarism? :) Plagiarism indeed in the case of YSL I say.

  3. Art will always be inspiration for fashion they say, fashion is also a form of art..The art of dressing ;)
