Shy Yves Saint Laurent

Like his mentor (Christian Dior), Yves Saint Laurent was painfully shy. Indeed, when Maison Yves Saint Laurent's first collection was shown, in January of 1962, the human tide which rushed to congratulate the designer was so daunting that he ran away and tried to hide in a cupboard.

["At twenty-one I entered a kind of stronghold of glory," he later wrote, "which has been the trap of my life."]

["My dream," Saint Laurent once declared, "is to save women from nature."]
