my life is a dark room, one big dark room

The Fall 08 Yves Saint Laurent show made one of the season's most dramatic and memorable contributions to fashion. The mop haircuts and black gloss worn by an army of futuristic models have been praised and dissected for months on end. If you aren't down to chop your hair off, but want to replicate the makeup used in the show, YSL has now made the gloss available for preorder. The shade is called "Pur Black" and is said to resemble patent leather, but without an ounce of sparkle or shimmer. It varies by application from plum to ebony and retails for $28— not bad for a piece of fashion history.

*It appears as though it might already be sold out but we'll see if they make more to supply the demand.
