“It was like a meeting with Joan of Arc…”

Celebration is director Olivier Meyrou’s gorgeously shot behind-the-scenes portrait of French couturier par excellence Yves Saint Laurent. Immersed inside the designer’s couture house as he prepares his final collection, Meyrou was granted unprecedented access to document everything from intimate confessions to high-stakes fittings with celebrity clients. This fly-on-the-wall film manages to capture both sides of a mythical legend – the larger-than-life entrepreneur surrounded by the likes of Catherine Deneuve and Loulou De La Falaise, and the astonishingly reclusive creative genius. Celebration: Yves Saint Laurent is a fascinating, glamorous and utterly invaluable window into the mind of a timeless fashion figure.
