Yves Saint Laurent Biopic Casts French Actor In Lead Role

French actor and model Gaspard Ulliel has been cast as Yves Saint Laurent in a biopic of the designer. You might not know Gaspard Ulliel by his name yet, but you’ve definitely seen him in ads for Chanel’s fragrance Bleu de Chanel. Although tons of actors tried out for the part, the role was given to Gaspard, no doubt in part because of his striking resemblance to the iconic designer.

The French-language movie, directed by Bertrand Bonello, will begin shooting in the spring of 2013. If you loved Audrey Tautou in Coco Before Chanel than we have a feeling you’ll be in line for this Yves Saint Laurent biopic on opening night. The film will focus on Yves Saint Laurent’s career in the ’60s and ’70s. We can’t wait!
