The Saint Lauren Shakeup
Hedi Slimane’s second exit from the maison of Yves Saint Laurent meant two things: the end of the LA-infused, glam rock cool he proposed for the house and the beginning of a new regime, to be headed by Anthony Vaccarello. The Belgian-Italian designer started with a clean slate, and he did just that at the Instagram page of @YSL: a portrait of him, and nothing else. Whatever this means, I’m definitely ready for a smokin’ sexy Saint Laurent.

TOP 5 SAINT LAURENT BY HEDI SLIMANE LOOKS
1. SPRING 2013
#ICONIC. Imagine a Cali girl taking up witchcraft lessons. This entire collection would totally be her wardrobe goals.
2. FALL 2016
Bringing in the drama! So many designers looked back to the 80’s for inspiration but Hedi did his in absolute couture perfection.
3. SPRING 2016
Princesses at Coachella! The tiaras elevated each festival-ready look into ideal princesses.
4. FALL 2013
The start of the flannel, babydoll dress, and ripped-everything craze that had everybody coveting…and shaking their heads. This collection screamed IDGAF.
5. FALL 2015
The collection that sent out disco dresses that I’ve been lusting for basically forever. No one can throw a party like Hedi does.
Top 5 Anthony Vaccarello Looks
1. SPRING 2012
The essence of the Vaccarello vixen. No concealing here, it’s all revealing.
2. SPRING 2015
Namedropping much? This is the collection that solidified Anthony’s industry status.
3. FALL 2015
A total starstudded collection was too hard not to be one of my faves. Legit cute… but with va-va-voom raciness.
4. SPRING 2016
Dresses and shirts with Anja Rubik’s face in it? Too in-your-face? Nah, I’m SOLD!
5. FALL 2013
Sleek and totally unexpected. Rendered in Anthony’s signature asymmetric cuts, even the basic shirtdress gets sensual with Vaccarello’s touch.
