Set in Paris in 1957, 21 year old Yves is catapulted to international stardom as the successor to the recently deceased, Christian Dior. At his first catwalk show he meets Pierre Bergé, who will become his lover and business partner, and begins a relationship that will change his life forever. Just a few years later, however, he's subjected to the public humiliation of being fired. Refusing to succumb to his critics and self-doubt, he creates the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house and presents the first ever 'ready to wear' collection, shocking the world of couture.

YVES SAINT LAURENT follows the designer as he attempts to democratise fashion against the backdrop of Sixties' liberation, battling his personal demons to build an empire that would be renowned for liberating women all over the world.

Directed by Jalil Lespert, starring Guillaume Galienne as Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Niney as Pierre Bergé, Charlotte le Bon as Victoire Doutreleau, Laura Smet as Loulou de la Falaise, Marie de Villepin as Betty Catroux and Nikolai Kinski as Karl Largerfeld, this all star cast presents a moving and insightful biopic of the hugely talented fashioner designer.
