Yves Saint Laurent, legendary French couturier, has always admired great Russian ballerina - Maya Plisetskaya. She was rightfully called one of his muses. In 1973 another great French - choreographer Roland Petit created "La Rose Malade" ballet with Gustav Mahler' music specially for the prima. Plisetskaya was going to perform with 6 male partners and to defy conservative Soviet society. Yves Saint Laurent was so inspired by this idea that he created incredibly feminine and at the same time revealing soft pink chiffon cape for his favourite ballerina.
#ThrowBackThursday - is a great cause to remember this story and watch these exclusive shots of Maya Plisetskaya, Yves Saint Laurent and Catherine Deneuve.
