Hello, Pierre Niney! Meet the Man Who Will Play Yves Saint Laurent
The Yves Saint Laurent film that will follow the late designer's rise from Dior assistant to fashion visionary was only just announced, but already 18-year-old Pierre Niney has been cast as a young YSL. So, who is Pierre Niney? According to his Twitter (@pierreniney), the Frenchman describes himself as a actor, director, and author—a jack of all trades whose first language is the same as Saint Laurent's. (Brownie points for authenticity.) He's appeared in a impressive list of film festival-bound films, and photographs prove he can work Saint Laurent's trademark thick-rimmed glasses with ease. The film is due out until 2014. Will you see it?
