Courtney Love Couture

Courtney Love's foray into the world of online retail.

Years ago, when I first saw Hole's 'Malibu' video clip, all I wanted to do was wear a white maxi dress and dance around a beach bonfire. And all thanks to Courtney Love. While I can't say I've held all of C-Lo's subsequent sartorial fashion choices in such high esteem, her signature slips and baby doll dresses have won her a fan in Riccardo Tisco and Meadham Kirchoff, who claim she is a 'muse', and her personal style blog, What Courtney Wore Today, has garnered legions of followers.

If knowing that C-Lo wore black tights, a Prada dress and a Margiela trenchcoat on a plane to Saint Barths isn't enough to whet your voyeuristic appetite, bookmark this her recently launched eBay store. Whether it's innocent spring-cleaning or a case of the Love-ly lady being hard up for cash (after the Twitter defamation debacle, we're guessing the later), Courtney Love Couture is your chance to cyber rummage through Love's dirty laundry. Items range from shoes to dresses and prices from $200 to $3,000. Listed so far have been Chanel heels, Givenchy boots and a demure Marc Jacobs frock. Interestingly, Love makes a distinction between items that she has worn (some featuring 'authentic cigarette burns!' and 'mysterious white stains!') and others that she has merely owned. Our advice: bid at your own risk, and get yourself a really good dry-cleaner.
