YSL's Fashion Film Starring Michael Pitt: Not Suitable (for Ears) at Work

Yves Saint Laurent decided to mix it up a little this year by kicking off Paris fashion week with a short film. Their fall 2009 opener features none other than Michael Pitt's face as he listens to a mysterious woman talk erotically, almost absurdly, about clothes (in French, naturellement). The short film is being hailed as pretty much a genius blurring of art and fashion, and, as mensrag helpfully points out, its subtlety make viewing totally SFW—so long as you have the sound turned off.
