Fashion World Mourns For Saint Laurent At Awards

A host of fashion icons and designers including VICTORIA BECKHAM, NAOMI CAMPBELL and CAROLINA HERRERA took time out on Monday night (02Jun08) to pay tribute to late style maestro YVES SAINT LAURENT at an awards event honouring the industry's best.
Top designer Diane von Furstenberg held back tears as she gave a somber speech remembering the legendary French designer - who died on Sunday (01Jun08) - at the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards gala in New York City's Public Library, reports the New York Daily News.
Von Furstenberg, the head of the organisation, told guests: "Tonight the world of fashion is mourning. Yves is an artist who always surprised us with his silhouette and colour palettes. He was a magician who changed the way women dressed forever.
"Like so many great artists, his life and his work really do live on."
Saint Laurent died from a brain tumour at the age of 71, following a long period of bad health.
