Loulou de la Falaise

One for the big fashion fans here, but sadly Loulou de la Falaise died yesterday.  Loulou was muse to Yves San Laurent and was reputed to have inspired Le smoking and his use of see through blouses in the late 1960s.  She later went on to design jewellery and accessories for his label.  She is probably most noted for being a leading light in the 1970's Studio 54 scene and she embodied for may people including myself louche French style.  Rest in peace beautiful stylish lady.
