Marilyn Manson Is the New Face of Saint Laurent. No, Seriously. [PHOTO]
Yes, we know today is a dubious day to be reporting such insane sounding news, but based on a leaked ad campaign, we're pretty sure that shock-rocker Marilyn Manson is the new face of Saint Laurent. For serious.
May we suggest the tagline, Marilyn Manson for Saint Laurent: If you gaze into the abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.
Hedi Slimane has been doing a lot of interesting things with the fashion brand, from dropping the Yves from the YSL name to creating a series of "neo-grunge" runway looks. Now he's topped all of that by naming Marilyn Manson as the new face of the brand's menswear.
As Huffington Post stated, Manson meets Slimane's vision of making the line "dark, edgy and slightly reminiscent of the '90s."
We just wonder if the well-spoken yet often misunderstood songwriter who once recreated the Kennedy assassination and wore an androgynous plastic body suit is the right guy to sell menswear to the beautiful people ... the beautiful people.
