George Clooney and his girlfriend Sarah Larson have split up after a year of dating, a source tells PEOPLE.
Yves Saint Laurent, the most influential designer in French couture in the last 50 years, died Sunday evening in Paris at the age of 71.
Sources tell PEOPLE that the designer fell ill and entered a Paris hospital last week, reportedly slipping into a coma Wednesday evening. The reclusive designer has been in worsening health for months. Word of his condition began to travel when he failed to appear in Montreal for a museum retrospective which opened last Thursday.
In confirming Saint Laurent's death to French news chain LCI, the designer's longtime partner Pierre Berge said, the designer "knew that he had revolutionized fashion, that he had revolutionized the second half of the 20th century. His designs accompanied the evolution of women."
Born Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, in Oran, Algeria, on Aug. 1, 1936, the fashion designer is known for his sleek haute couture as well as his ready to wear styles, both of which embodied the best of French sophistication.
Saint Laurent first rose to prominence at the age of 22 when he succeed Christian Dior on the latter's sudden death in 1957. Salvaging the designer's collection, he is credited with continuing the house's legacy as well as saving it from financial disaster.
Embroiderer Jacques Lesage, who worked with Saint Laurent for fifty years, beginning at Dior, said, "He invented everything. He reinvented everything." Following brief service in the French military, Saint Laurent opened the YSL label with partner Berge and quickly revolutionized French fashion, becoming the embodiment of the '60s and '70s with emblematic items including pop art designs and "Le Smoking," an elegantly tailored feminine version of traditional men's tuxedo wear.
In 1983, he became the first living fashion designer to be honored by New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Long associated with muses Catherine Deneuve and Ines de la Fressange, Saint Laurent showed his last collection in January 2002 and has spent the past years involved with Foundation work.
Oh Johnny! What's with the hair?!?!?!?! NO WAY!
The stars were out in full force for MTV's movie awards – and they made sure to get in plugs for their upcoming projects. With the golden carpet rolled out, Paris Hilton and Benji Madden came hand-in-hand, talking fashion and her show about a quest for a BFF. Audrina Patridge debuted new bangs and talked about wrapping Blue Crush 2. And while Sarah Jessica Parker talked about the record-breaking weekend opening of her new movie Sex and the City, Brendan Fraser hijacked the microphone to plug The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and Journey to the Center of the Earth. Inside the awards show, host Mike Myers interrupted his opening act (a spoof of the German film Wings of Desire) to plug his upcoming film The Love Guru. Charlize Theron joined costars Will Smith and Jason Bateman onstage to promo their upcoming film Hancock – and also hand out the award for best female performance to Ellen Page for Juno. Smith later picked up the award for best male performance, and reminisced about his first MTV appearance 20 years ago. Seth Rogen and his Pineapple Express costar James Franco hit the stage to present best summer movie ... so far. Before handing the award to Robert Downey Jr. for Iron Man, they pretended to smoke a joint onstage.
Johnny Depp took best comedic performance honors for his turn as Captain Jack in Pirates of the Caribbean and won best villain for Sweeney Todd. Zac Efron won for his breakthrough performance in Hairspray. Efron's date Vanessa Hudgens screamed and planted a big kiss on his cheek when his name was announced and he seemed truly surprised. Viewers chose Transformers as the year's best hit, and star Megan Fox promised the sequel, which starts filming Monday according to director Michael Bay, will be "f---ing bada--." Meanwhile one star made his way in without promoting anything: Tom Cruise was spotted making his way into the fest with Suri on his shoulders, and he later presented Adam Sandler with the MTV Generation Award.
