Who can trump the passion the fashion public has for the exciting collection of beaded dresses and jackets designed by Christophe Decarnin for Pierre Balmain? Someone from the grave: Yves Saint Laurent. This amazing Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture black paillette evening top with "strass" crystal trim on black mousseline was hand embroidered by the legendary Maison Lesage. It comes with black pajama pants which we like to call a "gift with purchase." There are many ways to wear this and if you are a Balmain-addict, it might just be perfect with a pair of their priced-to-the-heavens jeans. Certainly for black tie, a pair of tux pants would look great with this top or go more classic with a long evening skirt. We think the pictures really explain the beauty of this incredibly intricate piece of art that has so many possibilities: from edgy to classic. When the invitation says Creative Attire, trump your hostess in YSL HC!
