www - perhaps i am in a soft and pink mood, but reading about this on vogue.co.uk made me tear up just a little. a dvd on mademoiselle coco chanel's life will debut this coming november. the narrator will be none other than the late, great yves saint laurent himself. despite me feeling verklempt, there is nothing particularly soft and pink about the comments served in this documentary. case in point: "First of all, I'm very flattered that Mademoiselle Chanel deigned to take an interest in what I'm doing and that she designated me her successor, but I am not at all in agreement when she says I copy her." "I think the big difference between me and Mademoiselle Chanel is that I try to bring women a style that allows them to adapt their style to my dresses and allows them to develop their personalities. While a woman who wears Chanel resembles Mademoiselle Chanel." oh how i adore a touch of cattiness with my couture!
