To give credit where credit is due, Yves Saint Laurent first tailored the feminine tuxedo: he cut with more streamlined angles and the straightforward lines associated with menswear. Almost always seen with a masculine flair in the form of a brimmed hat and vest, one of our own smartly dressed women, Linda Pagan, the owner of The Hat Shop on Thompson Street, below wears Yves Saint Laurent as if it was hand tailored for her alongside this year's release of the new film "Yves Saint Laurent", documenting the life of the designer.
