Yves Saint Laurent Muse Loulou de la Falaise Dies at 64

05runway-articleInlineLoulou de la Falaise, a muse to Yves Saint Laurent who was also a designer and a woman whose style resisted classification, died on Saturday at her home in the Vexin region of northwest France. She was 64.

Her death was announced by the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, which did not give a cause.

Ms. de la Falaise was synonymous with the bohemian Left Bankworld of Saint Laurent and with his 1970s-era entourage, whether it touched down for a weekend in Marrakech or New York. She was lean and radiantly beautiful, with a wedge of curly blond hair and a crackling laugh. Her flair with clothes initially inspired Saint Laurent, who met her in 1968 at a tea party given by the designer Fernando Sánchez, a mutual friend. Over the next four decades many would be captivated by her.
