Which French Luxury Brand Just Hired Marilyn Manson?

Saint Laurent confirmed today that Marilyn Manson will front the brand's upcoming ad campaign—shocking right? Maybe not. Although the counterculture star is not the most traditional choice of models, he makes sense for this particular brand. Ever since its new creative director, Hedi Slimane, took the reigns two seasons back, he's ignited one controversy after another: name changes and fashion critic feuds and grunge-inspired collections that maybe look a little too much like second hand clothes. So if we've learned to expect anything from post-Pilati YSL, it's the unexpected. Mr. Manson, with his mysterious demeanor and feline features should fit in just fine. To the left, we've included a sneak peek of one of the upcoming ads and we must say, he does photograph well. Hmm, could this be the start of a epic career change?
