Forget supermodels or red carpet darlings. Rocker Marilyn Manson is the new face of Saint Laurent's latest ads.  

Yep, it may be April Fools' Day, but this is no joke. The proof? On Friday, Scene magazine's Peter Davis shared an actual campaign photo of the edgy musician via Facebook, along with the message, "Marilyn Manson in the new Saint Laurent ads. Thoughts?"

Well, for starters, Hedi Slimane's pick of the '90s shock-rocker may not be as surprising as it seems. The designer's latest fall/winter collection was particularly grunge-heavy (think babydoll dresses and plaid shirts galore), and he tapped musicians, like Beck and Sky Ferreira, to front campaigns in the past. 

Manson looks just like his '90s self is the shot, rocking black lipstick and generous amounts of guyliner for a look that channels the decade's angst-ridden vibe. Still, whether consumers today will find it fabulous—or frightening—remains to be seen.
