Is Courtney Love really an YSL woman?

The new face (muse) of Saint Laurent’s campaign is Cournty Love?! I am really curious to learn what Hedi Slimane’s definition is of the SL woman. I can only imagine the confusion of the women who adored Yves Saint Laurent and the woman he created with his designs. I normally don’t use my blog to speak very negatively about something or someone, but Courntey Love is a woman with no taste in style and life. Who would have thought that she and Jessica Chestain would be the face/muse of the same brand?
I can understand that a designer want’s to put his stamp on the fashion brand he designs for, but what Slimane is doing with YSL is really beyond my comprehension. My statement is, that if you want to do your own thing in such extremes…start your own label but don’t destroy a heritage like the house of Yves Saint Laurent. I think one has to have a special talent to design for an established brand, understand the heritage but give it a new modern injection like we see at Chloe and Dior.

YSL or SLP?

There was a lot of commotion today amongst fashion lovers and insiders. It is rumored that Yves Saint Laurent will disappear from the stage. That is, the name of the fashion house will be re-branded.

Hedi Slimane, the new creative director, is eager to make some drastic changes to the fashion label to give it the new modern vibe for which Slimane was hired to do. Rumor has it, and according to Women’s Wear Daily it has been confirmed, that the name Yves Saint Laurent will change into Saint Laurent Paris.

Does this mean that the famous YSL initials will disappear as well?? Fashionistas have already expressed their concerns about this on Twitter and the Web.

We already deleted Christian from the Dior brand and Coco from the Chanel brand. Are we losing now Yves as well?
