Designers including Christian Lacroix, Martine Sitbon, Riccardo Tisci and Roland Mouret – and loads of LVMH brass - were initially perplexed at Picart’s acceptance speech, the first part delivered in Vietnamese. But they cheered even more when Picart noted Yves Saint Laurent's controversial Forties collection inspired him to devote his career to fashion, and then sat down to a family-style dinner.
