In 1950s Paris, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were friends, the rising stars of the fashion world. But by the late sixties the city was invaded by a new mood of liberation and hedonism, and dominated by intrigue, infidelities, addiction and parties. Each designer created his own mesmerising world, so vivid and seductive that people were drawn to the power, charisma and fame, and it was to make them bitter rivals. The Beautiful Fall is a dazzling exposé of an era and the story of the two men who were its essence and who remain its most singular survivors.

15 September 1982, after six months of seething gossip and stealth, the announcement came: Karl Lagerfeld was going to design for Chanel. Twenty-eight years after he had stood for that one precious moment on a level with Yves Mathieu-Saint-Laurent and his shining destiny, Karl had finally caught up. He was forty-nine years old
