That time of the year is quickly approaching, and gift guides are a plenty. 

This year, Style.com has delivered a truly unique take on the usual gift guide by introducing it was an original Christmas tale of The Grunge

The Grunge is what the Grinch would be if Dr. Seuss was actually Hedi Slimane, with her vintage leather jacket and raccoon eyeliner frowning on all things merry and bright. 

In typical Grinch fashion, the Grunge tries to steal away the Christmas joy of even the most stylish celebrators, and the whole story is told in wonderfully whimsical rhyme written by Matthew Schneier. 

An excerpt from the holiday tale:

"From the well-to-do women on Champs-Elysees,
She flinched every last carat bought chez Cartier.
From snow bunnies in Aspen, while they apres-skied,
Every It bag, from PS1 right down to FEED."

The Grunge learns some valuable lesson about the meaning of Christmas, having her own personal style, and all that, and rewards all her victims with the most fabulous gifts for the most fabulously fashionable.
