Designer
    (May 4, 1948-November 5, 2011)
    Born in England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Louise Vava Lucia Henriette La Bailly de la Falaise
    Daughter of Maxime de la Falaise
    Designer, model, spokesperson and muse for Yves Saint Laurent
    Launched her own clothing and jewelry lines after Saint Laurent retired (2002)
    She was expelled from a Sussex boarding school for pranks such as putting slugs in her classmates' shoes.
    She said about an early, short-lived marriage, 'I was a divorcee at 21. I thought it was the most glamorous thing in the world.'
    She said about being known as Saint Laurent's muse, 'I used to get very irritated by that term.'
    She described her style as 'tomboy gypsy.'
    She used a wolf's head as the symbol for her clothing line, because 'My name Loulou means 'wolf wolf.' '
    She sold her designs on the Home Shopping Network.
    Her parents divorced when she was two and she and her brother were sent to live with a foster family until she was seven.
    Her explanation for disliking the term muse was, 'For me, a muse is someone who looks glamorous but is quite passive, whereas I was very hard-working. I worked from 9 AM to sometimes 9 PM or even 2 AM.'
    Yves Saint Laurent said, 'She has an extraordinary lightness of touch along with a faultless critical view of fashion... Her presence at my side is a dream.'
    Her looks were frequently compared with Marlene Dietrich.
    Her style was described by Hubert de Givenchy as 'personal, elegant and regal' and by Zac Posen as 'imaginative, individual and forever chic.'
