The weirdest thing at Yves Saint Laurent: all the outfits heavily referenced the '20s while pushing their silhouettes into the future. As dresses got shorter and widths got wider, feathers embroidered in sequins and lush draped silks swathed the girls. The clothes were the color of cats: Persian gray, tabby brown, calico black. And there was leather; lots of it - scaled into sheath dresses; spun into flowers; belted and belting, too. Jay Gatsby said that Daisy Buchanan "sounded full of money." The YSL outfits, too - silk brushing; heels slapping; coats crackling on and off. We especially love Freja's white tuxedo jacket, which has been widened and lengthened into a mini dress. Perhaps in the old story, a man was the great pretender, but on Stefano Pilati's runway, a girl can just as easily run away with the knowledge that a brilliant dress and some careful conversation will get you wherever you need to go. (thanks to their 18-hour time difference, Vogue Australia has the shows first!)
