Yves Saint Laurent ... Cartoonist?

Yes, Yves Saint Laurent. THAT Yves Saint Laurent!

Fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent dreamed up a character called "Nasty Lulu" in 1956, and there was a book published in 1960. He

"created a character who swills scotch, poisons her classmates and sets houses on fire.

"Her name is Lulu.

"Did I mention she's still in grade school?"

In TheStar.com, Chantal Braganza writes about it in ‘Nasty Lulu' Yves Saint Laurent's little-known creation.

The book, a rare collectible among Saint Laurent fans, has been reprinted. La Vilaine Lulu is available in the EU and Canada.
