Yves Saint Laurent’s life from 1967 to 1976, during which time the famed fashion designer was at the peak of his career.
In this controversial and unauthorized biography, we see that not only did St. Laurent define himself and his design style during this period, but through both his persona and his business, made an indelible mark on the very era. Director Bertrand Bonello’s trademark fascination with the sensual, the sensory and the hedonistic makes a perfect fit to explore St. Laurent’s now-mythological decade of deliverance. With stunning attention to detail, including a climactic recreation of St. Laurent’s revolutionary Moroccan-inspired 1976 collection, Bonello captures the spirit of creative genius in a time of great freedom, even as emotional vertigo threatened St. Laurent’s own spectacular heights.
A brilliant cast, including Jeremie Renier as St. Laurent’s life and business partner Pierre Berge (who refuses to this day to lend credence to Bonello’s film) and Louis Garel as St. Laurent’s male model lover, as well as Helmut Berger and Brady Corbet in memorable appearances, add to the rich, luxurious texture of the hunt for beauty and perfection.

Girl Model, the documentary, strips away the façade of the modeling industry by following two people whose lives intersect because of it. Ashley is a deeply conflicted American former model turned scout. Thirteen-year-old Nadya, plucked from a remote Siberian village and promised a lucrative career in Japan, is her latest discovery. As the young girl searches for glamour and an escape from poverty, she confronts the harsh realities of a culture that worships youth—and an industry that makes perpetual childhood a globally traded commodity.
Girl Model’s disturbing look behind the curtain raises important questions about responsibility that go beyond the people we see on screen. Viewers are confronted with a reality that forces all of us to ask who creates the demand for these models and who is responsible for their well-being. As an outreach tool, the film is an excellent springboard for discussions about the culture of fashion and the role its values play in our lives, media and economy.
