You've likely heard that the Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective exhibition is in full swing at the Denver Art Museumâand hopefully you've gotten the chance to wander through the rooms and aisles of gorgeous couture outfits. (I wanted to try everything on!) If you haven't, go. The clothes are beautiful, the presentation thoughtful and the story of YSL inspiring.
You can trust our recommendation because we've been spending more time hanging around the DAM than we'd like to admit, savoring the show. First, there was the exhibition itself...
Then, also at DAM, a fabulous runway show called "Forever Darling," hosted by Project Runway Season 9 designer (and Denver resident) Fallene Wells, in which former Project Runway contestants sent YSL-inspired collections down the catwalk...

And to crown the whole experience? A private after-hours, red-carpet-treatment party at the museumâwith full access to the exhibitionâhosted by Coldwell Banker Devonshire.
