Jalil Lespert's Yves Saint Laurent biopic trailer is here, and it's in French, and it's intense!

Set to the furious plucking of violin strings, we get to enjoy soundbites like, "If I can't express myself, I'll die" as couture clothing, Paris cityscapes, and even Niney in the nude flash over the screen. Get ready for this cinematic spectacular with a look at the trailer.

At Saint Laurent Paris (formerly Yves Saint Laurent), the history of runway beauty runs the gamut, swinging from androgynous to glamorous and right back again. The results are almost always unexpected, yet still very YSL. To celebrate the upcoming start of Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week, click through to see some of the best looks from past runways of Yves Saint Laurent, as well as the newly renamed Saint Laurent Paris.
Few things gave Yves Saint Laurent greater pleasure than to see a woman looking stunning in one of his designs. "The most beautiful clothes than can dress a woman are the arms of the man she loves," he once said. "But for those who haven't had the fortune of finding this happiness, I am there."
If Saint Laurent were alive today, he would have celebrated his 77th birthday at a time of great transition at the house he founded in 1962. But he surely would have appreciated how its new creative director Hedi Slimane is dedicated to honoring his memory. Even changing the name of the house to Saint Laurent Paris has been billed as a way to "return to the fundamentals of YSL."
And fundamentally, Yves Saint Laurent wanted to help women look and feel their best. In honor of his Aug. 1 birthday, a look at his lifelong mission to do just that, here in the gallery.

We saw bright pink lashes backstage at the Donna Karan Spring 2013 show, and now there are plenty of new colored mascaras hitting Summer makeup counter displays. From yellows and blues to pinks and greens, there's a wand for painting your lashes, too.
The L'Été Papillon de Chanel collection was inspired by the iridescent hues of butterflies' wings, and the limited-edition Inimitable Waterproof Mascara ($30) comes in a range of blues and a yellow shade. YSL's False Lash Effect Shocking Mascara ($30) debuted yet another color in the range, Jade Black, a deep forest green. And if you were hoping to re-create the pop of pink from Donna Karan, Hypercolor Brow & Lash Tint from Anastasia Beverly Hills ($22) should be your go-to tube. It comes in bright shades of pink, purple, and blue. And to really enhance your colored lashes, try rimming your eyes with a matching liner.
The two masked French gentlemen who make up the iconic band known as Daft Punk are the latest musicians to star in Saint Laurent's Music Project campaign.
The band unveiled details about its upcoming album, Random Access Memories, in a video screened Friday night at Coachella. In it, they, singer Pharrell Williams, and guitarist Nile Rodgers are seen wearing sequined tuxedo jackets — Saint Laurent Black Glitter "Le Smoking" Jackets, in official parlance — created by Hedi Slimane. On Saturday, the house released photos of the duo wearing the jackets and uploaded another video to YouTube that features additional photos of the performers in their sparkly stage wear.
Daft Punk has been working with Saint Laurent since Slimane's debut collection for the house, which was shown last October. The duo created a 15-minute soundtrack for Slimane's Spring 2013 show. They join Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, and a number of other musicians who've been featured in the Music Project campaign. Take look at Daft Punk's video below and find their ads here in the gallery.
Turns out Marilyn Manson isn't the only rock star to appear in the latest Hedi Slimane-lensed campaign for Saint Laurent. The house is continuing to cement its ties with musicians by featuring Manson, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon, and Ariel Winter in its latest series of ads, called Music Project.
Scene magazine editor in chief Peter Davis tweeted what appeared to be a picture of the campaign last Friday, and today Saint Laurent has revealed all of the pictures. The ads, which feature Saint Laurent clothing old and new, will make their print debuts later this month in magazines like the UK's Art Review, France's Volume, and Dazed & Confused Korea.
Manson and company certainly won't be the first musicians to appear in one of the brand's campaigns. In January, the brand's creative director, Hedi Slimane, released a few shots he took of Beck.
