Saint Laurent's Latest Muses: Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson

What do Emily Blunt and Marilyn Manson have in common?

As it turns out, more than just being brunettes: They’ve now both fronted campaigns for the house formerly known as Yves Saint Laurent.

Of course, Blunt was there before the line hired Hedi Slimane and dropped the “Yves,” rebranding itself as a more punk-rock fashion house and sending ’90s-inspired babydoll dresses and grunge-inspired outfits down its Fall/Winter 2013 runway.

Now Slimane is continuing his tribute to ’90s music by featuring iconic (and controversial) singers like Manson, Courtney Love (below) and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon in his spring/summer ad campaign. All the rockers were shot by Slimane in Saint Laurent pieces.

Now all that remains to be seen is if Saint Laurent-clad starlets will channel the wild behavior of Slimane’s latest models. Here’s hoping for some crazy red carpets in the future!

Tell us: What do you think of Saint Laurent’s ad campaign?

Thought the point of ads was to sell, not repel.

Whatever they’re selling i don’t want it.

Some Desginers will do anything for money & with these icons !!!!! as role models it certainly explains why our youth is involved in so much violence. These two” “alleged icons epitomize” our American culture and obviously have the support of Silmane, Helena.

I think it’s awesome!! Perfect little size 0 beauties aren’t the only ones who can model! I think it’s cool and edgy of Saint Laurent to use the muses as campaign models.

Lizzy M on

They pick these three as a tribute to 90s music???? What about Chris Cornell, Eddie Veddar, Alanis Morrisette? All MUCH more attractive and influential subjects. Love rode on her late husbands coattails, and Manson’s music is shock.
