Two different Yves Saint Laurent biopics are being produced, complete with all sorts of controversy.

The story goes that Pierre Bergé, Yves Saint Laurent’s longtime business and romantic partner, granted support for the first film, Yves Saint Laurent (directed by Jalil Lespert and starring Pierre Niney), before refusing it in favor of the second,  Saint Laurent (directed by Bertrand Bonello and starring Gaspard Ulliel), forcing production to be delayed. Despite the blessing, however, Bergé has promised swift legal action should the film step out of line and include any reproductions of outfits or sketches from the brand. We’ll let you know when we have more information about production, but for now we’re happy in knowing that the drama surrounding the films is more interesting than any YSL biopic possibly could.
