First Look: Marilyn Manson for Saint Laurent… yes, this is happening.

Earlier this morning I tweeted about a very sensitive topic – the announcement of the new Yves Saint Laurent campaign star. You may remember last season, Hedi Slimane’s first season with the brand, Beck was chosen to front the campaign. Ok, so there seems to be a musician theme forming here as the latest member of the pack for Saint Laurent is Marilyn Manson.

Breathe! I can feel you hyperventilating. I know it’s a shocker and the people over at Saint Laurent are definitely keeping us all on our feet. That being said, we are also starting to feel it’s a game of how far the adoring public can be pushed. Do you think this is a push too far or an eye opener to a new way of looking at fashion? Enquiring minds would like to know your opinion…

Looking forward, I’d be willing to bet you a buck or two that Courtney Love will be our next announcement for the brand. If you are wondering what ever I could mean by making such a statement, check out this great comparison that Glamour did with the new collection and Love’s fashion history.
