The Triumph of Style Over Substance
For 30 years Lou Lou de la Falaise was muse to Yves Saint Laurent and reputedly inspired him to create the legendary 1966 tuxedo. Now she has a shop in Paris, Maison de Loulou, and her own line of cheap but chic accessories, which she sells through the American HSN shopping channel. A surprising move for someone once married to the Knight of Glin, and perhaps even to LouLou herself, who was heard to remark during a recent broadcast 'I always used to say I'd rather be run over by a car than do this'.
