Yves_1 Poor Yves St Laurent. As awful as it must be to collapse suddenly in the street, he also had to suffer the indignity of having crowds of photographers surrounding him, snapping away while he lay there.  The designer collapsed after showing his latest collection at Paris Fashion Week, and was rushed to hospital.  Despite speculation that his alleged drug and alcohol abuse may have finally caught up with him, however, accprding to a spokesman, Yves is now back at home and making a good recovery.

"Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent is very well, very very well," he said. "He slipped in the street. It was a hard fall but just a simple, common, ordinary accident that could happen to anyone."
