|Antichrist Superstar Marilyn Manson is not only daring, gender-fluid and a true fashion icon. He has taught us much more.
If you grew up in the 90’s you probably listened to Marylin Manson, and if like us you were probably more than a little obsessed with him. Well today is his 48th birthday, so to commemorate this date we thought we’d have a look back on all the style lessons we’ve learned from him.
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t wear, especially mainstream fashion.
Own what you wear
Either in head to toe black or head to toe leopard print, be confident.
Gender is fluid
Whilst we may have learned this from Bowie, Manson just cemented the idea in a generation. Want to wear a tutu & some fishnets? Go for it.
Fuck what anyone thinks
Someone doesn’t like your outfit? WTF has it got to do with them? Wear what you want.
Dress for how you feel.
Feeling blue? Angry? Mellow? Or so you just want to make a statement? Go for it.
