Yves Saint Laurent is Making Me Cry

I'm sitting here watching Yves Saint Laurent: His Life and Times for the umpteenth time. It's so damn inspiring. I admire the hell out of him. His speech positively floors me. He chooses every word carefully and perfectly. We should all be so aware.  

These two YSL quotes are currently battling for Most Fabulous:

"The word 'elegance' is as outmoded as 'haute couture'. It's a seductive woman who dresses to appeal to men. The word 'seduction' has replaced the word 'elegance'. It's a certain way of living, not of dressing."

"We must never confuse elegance with snobbery."
