Saint Laurent Tapping into 90s Rock

Courtney Love

Saint Laurent

While I'm happy to see that Marilyn Manson isn't the only rock star to be used in the fashion brand's latest campaign, I have to admit I'm thoroughly disappointed with the choices all around. I don't know about you, but none of the artists featured are people I'd want to model my life around, much less my fashion, around. You?

Rock star: Style thyself. Thatís the latest edict from Hedi Slimane, whose next advertising campaigns for Saint Laurent will feature musicians Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Kim Gordon and Ariel Pink in looks they sometimes put together themselves.

Gordon, for example, plucked Slimaneís own polka dot scarf when she posed for him in Saint Laurentís New York photo studio earlier this year. (She also selected a tuxedo jacket, a leather miniskirt, jewelry from Saint Laurentís Vermeil collection and a bustier dress from whatís known as the permanent collection.) Manson and the California rocker Pink will appear wearing Saint Laurentís ďL01Ē leather motorcycle jacket, priced at $4,900 on YSLís e-shop. Read More
