Yves Saint Laurent Paris Museum will devote an exceptional exhibition to Betty Catroux in 2020 from March 3, 2020 to October 11, 2020

In 2020, the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris is devoting a special exhibition to Betty Catroux, fashion icon and Yves Saint Laurent’s “female double”, from March 3, 2020 to October 11, 2020. The pieces displayed in the exhibition come from a major donation Betty Catroux has made to the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent.
Madison Cox, president of the Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent, is giving Anthony Vaccarello carte blanche for this exhibition held at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris. Approximately fifty designs show the extent to which Betty Catroux embodied Yves Saint Laurent’s physical ideal and an attitude echoing the “masculine/feminine style” that he was developing when they first met at the nightclub The New Jimmy’s in 1967. Yves Saint Laurent immediately fell in love with her androgynous look, which was radically different from the usual codes of femininity and seductiveness and remains the subject of ongoing fascination.
Address: 5 Avenue Marceau 75116
