#TBT: YSL's Farewell to Couture

We still get a little teary eyed thinking about the legendary designer's final fashion show in 2002.


This Thursday, we dedicate our throwback to Yves Saint Laurent, a true visionary when it came to fashion. This photo represents the end of an era, which he had built for 40 years. The then 65-year-old Saint Laurent is pictured during the finale of his last couture show in the Spring of 2002, surrounded by models (including Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Laetitia Casta and Catherine Deneuve) not only showing their admiration for the designer, but also wearing his signature contribution to the fashion industry, "Le Smoking" suit.  

To commemorate the genius behind one of the most famous fashion houses of all time—and mark the release of Yves Saint Laurent, the biopic that opened in select theaters yesterday—we hand-picked some of our favorite smoking suits to walk the runway and red carpet.
