Not gonna lie, when Amelia sent me the link to Courtney Love’s closet tour of her West Village townhouse, my first response was “TERRIFYING.” I mean, think of all the misplaced cigarette butts, the stray hair extensions, the tatters. But actually? Courtney’s got some fine stuff. During her closet tour with Scott Lipps, Courtney expounds on the wonders of gloves, the joys of Victorian clothing and why her “utilitarian” Chloe blouse (which, let’s be honest, costs more than everything in my closet put together) is her favorite thing ever.

The nice thing about Courtney is that she has so many iconically messy moments to choose from.

In the article, Love also discusses her complicated (is anything not complicated with this woman?) relationship with estranged daughter Frances Bean. Check out more, after the jump… Keep reading »
“I didn’t know she had that many tattoos! We don’t talk but we email, so I didn’t know about the new ones she’d gotten. When she first got that Jeff Buckley thing I was, like, she knows I went on a date with him, right? And I saw the Quentin Crisp, I was incredibly impressed.

—Courtney Love may be pretty much estranged from 18-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain but she’s still got a mother’s concern about her daughter’s ink. Frances recently posed for some absolutely breathtaking photos by the high-art photographer Hedi Slimane. Who would have thought that of all the famous teens to do photoshoots, the child of Courtney Love’s would be the most tasteful? [NY Observer] Keep reading »
