The November issue of Lucky should be on newsstands right about now.

This month, Vanessa Hudgens covers the mag wearing a to-die-for YSL gown.

The 19 year old shares deets on her style during the interview.

Before I leave the house, I research what I want online and where I’m going to get it. Right now I’m into flowy bohemian pieces that I’ll toughen up with something harder like biker boots.

In this issue, also look out for a feature that’s being run at just the right time.

The Associated Press reports:

Yves Saint Laurent, the designer who reworked the rules of fashion by putting women into elegant pantsuits that came to define how modern women dressed, died Sunday. He was 71.

Longtime friend and associate Pierre Berge said Saint Laurent died at his Paris home after a long illness.

A towering figure of 20th-century fashion, Saint Laurent was widely considered the last of a generation that included Christian Dior and Coco Chanel and made Paris the fashion capital of the world, with the Rive Gauche, or Left Bank, as its elegant headquarters.

In the fast-changing world of haute couture, Saint Laurent was hailed as the most influential and enduring designer of his time. From the first YSL tuxedo and his trim pantsuits to see-through blouses, safari jackets and glamorous gowns, Saint Laurent created instant classics that remain stylish decades later.
