QUEEN OF THE NIGHT
There’s never a dull moment in the world of fashion—especially when it comes to weddings.
Yves Saint Laurent first met Loulou de la Falaise in the late ’60s, he was charmed by her eccentric style. The French designer immediately enlisted the beautiful bohémienne as his full-time muse. Over the years, Loulou became an integral part of Saint Laurent’s life, and company, inspiring unique clothing designs and creating vibrant jewellery and à la mode accessories in the brand’s atelier for nearly three decades.
In the spring of 1977, Loulou married French writer Thadée Klossowski de Rola in Paris. This being her second marriage, she rejected all things traditional with a rule-breaking look that made a serious sartorial statement. There was no white gown, no long veil, and no “something blue.” With her hair tucked beneath a chicly wrapped white turban, and strands of pearls draped over a remarkable Maharaja-inspired ensemble, Loulou walked down the aisle to the beat of her own drum, encouraging like-minded brides to do the same.
