Goodnight Yves St Laurent

Yves St Laurent just died, aged 71. I'm sure a lot of other people will write about this far more eloquently, so I'll just say: to the man who invented Le Smoking and defined feminine-masculine tailoring, carried the house torch after Christian Dior's death, was the first to use black models in his catwalk shows and, with his Rive Gauche label, put ready-to-wear fashion on the map: sir, we'll miss you.
