Ex-Girls Frontman Christopher Owens Now a Model for Saint Laurent

+

Everyone was pretty dang surprised earlier this year when Girls frontman Christopher Owens left the band of which he’d pretty much been the most recognizable face, but that doesn’t mean the singer is stepping out of the spotlight. Today, the fashion house formerly known as Yves Saint Laurent released its first image since designer Hedi Slimane took the top spot this spring and cut the “Yves” out of the name. And what do you know, the ad prominently features Owens’ right side and the back of his head. Sick. Not really sure what this indicates for the label’s upcoming show (maybe a lot of sashes?), but you can have a lot of fun imagining Slimane saying with a straight face, “Menswear in 2013 is all about the right side of the body.” As for Owens, maybe he’s  working on his walk somewhere. If so, dude had better cut down on the pizzas and bottles of wine.
