Shock rocker Marilyn Manson and his girlfriend Dita Von Teese have been recruited to model designer Vivienne Westwood's new collection.

The pair will pose in Westwood's spring/summer 2005 designs for billboard and magazine ad campaigns.

The trio got together after meeting at a party last year (04) and hit it off. Manson wore Westwood-designed clothes during his resent tour and the designer is currently constructing a dress for burlesque dancer Von Teese to wear when she marries the singer.

Brit Westwood says, "I like his music; I like his brain, his looks and his style.

"He's marrying Dita who must be his dream - I'm looking forward to the dress - and to her act - friends tell me it's something else."
