Actress, top model, director, producer, actress: Laetitia Casta likes to take on new challenges! It was thanks to fashion that she became world famous. Her modeling career had started badly, with a first meeting and shocking comments about her physique.
Although considered one of the most beautiful women on the planet, Laetitia Casta has also been the subject of inappropriate criticism. She remembered it this Monday, January 10, 2021, the date of her appearance on the show Day-to-day presented by Yann Barthès. Asked about the feeling of illegitimacy she felt in the past, the companion of Louis Garrel told an anecdote about the beginnings of her modeling career.
“I was not at all in the standards, while I had not asked for anything! I arrived with what I was, I thought it was very good. We had to defend something“, reveals Laetitia Casta. Still a teenager at the time, the model defends her body judged by the team of the late designer Yves Saint Laurent.
But how are we going to dress this?
“They were the ones who looked at me because they said: ‘But how are we going to dress this?’ They didn’t know I was French, remembers the heroine of the play Clara Haskil, Prélude and Fugue. I was there, [ils ont dit ça, NDLR] on front of me ! I was 15 and a half years old. I told them, ‘I will never go to this awful place again. I won’t go any more. ‘“Laetitia Casta will be convinced and will meet Yves Saint Laurent in person.
From there will be born a love story between the couturier who died on June 1, 2008, the Yves Saint Laurent house (renamed Saint Laurent) and the muse. Romance that continues today, with a recent series of photos of Laetitia Casta fully dressed in Saint Laurent for the magazine Telerama.
