Style Crush: Courtney Love
I discovered Courtney Love and her band Hole's music through an episode of RAGE. Someone had requested 'Malibu' to be played that morning and I absolutely adored the cruisy tune. I later went on to Itunes to purchase the song. About a year or so later, still loving the song, I investigated further and found myself purchasing more songs, planning to eventually buy an album and reading a wikipedia page or two. Then my obsession with the film clips began. And, then the fashion.
Throughout the years, Courtney Love has been spotted in several dreamy feminine (and somewhat provocative) outfits. The small changes she has made in costuming are defined somewhat by which Hole album was charting at the time. In this post I wanted to focus more on the 'Live Through This' Era.
I saw an interview on youtube that was recorded back when the album was first released. Barbara Walters (the interviewer) says that Courtney Love is like a damaged prom queen (or something along those lines). She does seem a bit that way, with the music especially. I also thought that she seemed a little doll-like with the blonde fluffy hair, the red lips, the powdered skin, the pale tights.... Like a big girl in little girls' clothes.
The images I'm talking about are evident in the 'Doll Parts', 'Violet' and 'Miss World' film clips, as well as several photos from tours and for press. I made a Polyvore collection: here
