Yves Saint Laurent kicks the bucket

Yves Saint Laurent, the international fashion legend passed away Saturday in Paris, France, his business partner and longtime friend Pierre Berger, announced.

Yves Saint Laurent retired in 2002 after forty years of service in the fashion industry.

Born August 1, 1936, in Oran, Algeria, he won the first prize in the International Wool Secretariat contest for his asymetrical cocktail dress in 1954.

His passion for black women encouraged other big names in fashion design to follow his cue, thus opening the door for black models around the world.

His muse Katoucha died recently under mysterious circumstances.
