A night at the YSL Beauty Hotel with power duo Courtney Love and Diane Kruger

After the beauty club in the heart of the Tuileries garden last year, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty set the high bar again for his now emblematic evening during fashion week. With its YSL Beauty Hotel, the house fulfills all the fantasies of fashionable beauty addict. This Wednesday evening, right in front of the Madeleine, a large black scaffolding covered the façade of the mysterious hotel and, from 10 p.m. (kick-off time of the crazy night), the guests were already rushing to the door. 22h10 : arrival of the much awaited Courtney Love who, without blinking, let herself be assaulted by the horde of photographers who were waiting for her. As soon as you enter the premises, the host will have fun navigating the experiential route from the ground floor dedicated to the YSL product lines – with Black Opium in the spotlight – to the upstairs rooms, all of which have reserved their share of surprises. Like a live of the Dampa duo to whom we owe the soundtrack of the Black Opium campaign. The opportunity to meet Diane Kruger (whose pink sweatshirt has apparently been the subject of debate on social networks) on the way down the stairs, or to hope to see Zoë Kravitz, the muse who came to check-in a few hours earlier. As we can imagine, the heart of the evening was beating in the basement. With a burning line-up (Simi and Haze, Hyphen Hyphen, Sebastian, and Rudy Kobain), nobody was long in getting moving, and it was the Gucci Gang girls who set the example. YSL had thought of the absent (and his following) with the takeover of Loïc Prigent on the @yslbeauty Instastories. The opportunity to be as close as possible to the “Yves Saint Party”…
