LUSCIOUS AT THE MOVIES: The “other” Saint Laurent film trailer with Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent

 

 Sorry, no English subtitles!

 

It’s odd seeing this trailer, having recently watched the rival 2014 Yves Saint Laurent movie starring Pierre Niney and Guillaume Gallienne, as YSL and Pierre Berge respectively. Read more about it here.

This alternate film, called simply Saint Laurent, is due for release in September. It’s co-written and directed by Bertrand Bonello, and starring Gaspard Ulliel as Yves Saint Laurent, Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé and Louis Garrel as Jacques de Bascher. Read more about it here.

Are you so devoted to fashion that you will see both? I know it sounds a bit silly when they look identical, but I probably will!
