YSL Sale Sets New Record

The sale of Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé's vast art collection has ended and the final sales tally is in. All told, the Christie's event took in $484.6 million, making it the biggest private art auction in history. If you missed the action in Paris and you're a bit bummed about it, do note that Bergé says he now plans to sell Saint Laurent's former apartment on Rue de Babylone. You couldn't find a pied-à-terre in Paris with a more impressive pedigree if you tried! [WWD]
