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.
