Marilyn Manson, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon And Ariel Pink (As Kurt?) Star In Saint Laurent's '90s-tastic New Campaign

When I saw the first glimpse of Yves Saint Laurent‘s ’90-centric new campaign featuring one Marilyn Manson last week, I got very, very excited.

Frank Ocean Makes His Fashion Modeling Debut In Band Of Outsiders' Instagram-y Spring Campaign

It’s been a pretty good year or so for Frank Ocean. His debut full-length, Channel Orange, won a Grammy for “Best Urban Contemporary Album,” and better yet, most people correctly thought he was the rightful winner of the “Album Of The Year” title stolen by Boring And Sons. The world reacted well to his revelation that his album was partly about a male lover, and he came out looking like the good guy in an altercation with Chris Brown (granted, not a hard thing to do). Now, he’s branching out into the world of fashion with a starring role in Band Of Outsiders’ spring/summer 2013 campaign, and while he certainly looks good in the clothes, I kind of wish you could see them better. Kids today, with their high tech digital simulations of shitty old cameras! That said, it appeals to the part of my brain that is addicted to Instagram, and the campaign is a clear sign that he’s become a beacon of pop culture, as previous BofO stars include Michelle Williams and the Harry Potter kids.
