Three Revlon nail polishes (two reds, one pearly silver) can be seen in a dressing room at the Théâtre Bobino in Paris, where Zizi Jeanmarie is performing with her revue. Yves Saint Laurent designed her feathery and sparkly costumes.
On Yves Saint Laurent’s desk there are a white box of Y perfume and a red nail polish.
The first men’s perfume by Yves Saint Laurent was Pour Homme, an aromatic scent launched in 1971. Its advertising campaign – the designer posing naked in front of the camera of Jean Loup Sieff – challenged the concept of male nudity in advertising and caused a scandal.
The same concept was used by Tom Ford in 2002: the advertising campaign of YSL M7 featured the martial arts champion Samuel de Cubber naked.
