Summary, etc.:
"Dauntless 'in the bone style' made Loulou de La Falaise one of the great fashion firebrands of the twentieth century. Descending in a direct line from Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, she was celebrated at her death in 2011, aged just sixty-four, as the 'highest of haute bohemia, ' a feckless adventuress in the art of living--and the one person Yves Saint Laurent could not live without ... [She] was his creative right hand, muse, alter ego, and the virtuoso behind all the ... accessories that were a crucial component of the YSL 'look'"--Amazon.com.
