Black lipstick, thick black eyeliner, and a black leather jacket, the singer Marilyn Manson is the new muse of Hedi Slimane. Saint Laurents new 2013 campaign, which is not officially out yet but was confirmed by Manson earlier today.
Marilyn Manson has always had a decent sense of fashion, and not many know that he is very good friends with Galliano (Marilyn wore Galliano at his wedding) and he is also very good friends with Marc Jacobs. Marilyn occasionally attends catwalk shows world wide in support of his designer friends.
It is suitable that Slimane has picked a nineties rock star, even though a lot will still associate him with gothy teenagers with weird tattoos and piercings and coloured contacts, and lets not forget the breasted body suit, but Manson will never loose his edge or mysteriousness, being one of the last proper rock stars still around.
I was listening to Manson and into his music before I ever thought that fashion would become my career, and now those two are finally together and I could not be any happier!
