There are a lot of things people often forget about Yves Saint Laurent. Within the history of fashion, he’s credited of creating the elegant pantsuit look for women, popularizing the safari style within haute couture, and his amazing mixing, matching, and clashing of colors. Beyond these, however, he was also one of the leading designers that helped women achieve sexual liberation through clothing. Sometimes, his elegant clothes featured sheer tops that showed off the model’s nipples. Other times, he sent down women without pantyhouse, which at the era of his heyday, was shocking. Today, creative director Anthony Vaccarello presented an homage to this side of the legendary fashion house with a stunning show overlooking the Eiffel Tower. On a water-filled runway, the sexiest models wore well-tailored bodysuits and swimsuits, sheer chiffon dresses, and leopard-printed pieces. It was powerful seeing these glamazons stomp as the waters splashed against them, The confidence that these clothes conveyed stayed true to the label and its founder’s everlasting legacy of highlighting the strength of women.
