The name Catherine Deneuve holds a sacred place in fashion though the general public may know the 78-year-old for her pivotal role in French New Wave cinema. The former muse of Yves Saint Laurent helped to inspire the earlier works of the iconic designer, thereby having an indirect hand in shaping the fashion house that has become one of the pillars of French fashion. Having sold most of her custom couture a few years ago which were made by the celebrated designer, Deneuve still has strong links to the house, having last appeared fronting its spring-summer 2021 campaign. Now, Anthony Vaccarello is paying a big homage to the screen icon on the occasion of the 79th Venice Film Festival, where she received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement Award. Saint Laurent hosted a celebratory public event on September 6, titled Une nuit avec Deneuve, at the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi, which ran several of her films from late night until dawn. As expected, the turn-out was just as star-studded with guests like Anja Rubik, Carla Bruni, and Eva Herizgova showing their support.
