Hip-Hop Fashion: Rick Ross & Swizz Beatz In YSL Tee Shirts

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) was created by French fashion designer Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent in 1961. At the age of 17, Laurent moved to Paris to pursue a fashion career. He was eventually hired as couturier Christian Dior’s assistant. When Dior died, he was named head of the House of Dior. On June 1, 2008, Laurent succumbed of brain cancer. YSL left behind a great impact and his brand can be seen on some of the biggest rappers in the industry. Below are two pictures of Swizz Beatz and Rick Ross in YSL:

The talented Swizz Beatz attended Paper magazine 2011 Nightlife Awards at the Hiro Ballroom.

Rick Ross was spotted out in L.A. on the set of Red Cafe video shoot for his single “Fly Together” Ft. Rick Ross and Ryan Leslie. Ross is also working on his new album, entitled God Forgives, I Don’t.
