As if there hasn't been enough hullabaloo surrounding the initials YSL in the past few months, Yves Saint Laurent's personal portfolio of sketches, photos, and erotic drawings was reportedly stolen from his partner Pierre Bergé's apartment. In a movie-worthy twist, Bergé alleges the culprit was one of the late designer's former lovers, and that the drawings currently reside with an unidentified German businessman.
