Instead of live-streaming its spring 2016 runway show on Monday evening in Paris, Saint Laurent apparently decided to live-tweet it instead, posting real-time information about the looks and accessories that made up the typically grunge-inspired collection. Hedi Slimane seemed to be all about the punk rock prom queen this season — perhaps one who went to Glastonbury on her summer holiday, since wellies made up the majority of the show's footwear and were paired with everything from sequined slips and short denim overalls to plush furs and leather jackets.

But the piece that really caught our attention — and that we think might immediately set off a chain reaction of copycats — is what Saint Laurent is calling a "grunge tiara." According to the brand's Twitter, it's meant to be "worn with everything," which is fitting, considering that the sparkly headgear accented nearly every look in the collection, save for the silk evening dresses in the finale. Models like Agyness Deyn (who made a very rare runway appearance), Staz Lindes and Ruth Bell may have mean-mugged as they walked, but how tough can you possibly look while wearing a glittering tiara?

This is not the first time Slimane has toyed with the crown idea: Courtney Love wore a version in a Saint Laurent campaign in 2013, and his runway headgear has launched dozens of copycats before, namely the witchy hats he showed for spring 2013. So, if you've long dreamed of living out your Disney Princess fantasies, Saint Laurent has your back for spring.

The original grunge queen, Courtney Love.
