Courtney Love in Elle magazine

I was happily surprised to see one of my first female style icons on the cover of the januari 2009 issue of Elle UK. And damn yes, she looks great.

It brought back memories of me stealing her style in the early nineties. Ripped up vintage dresses,  little plastic hairclips, white tights, mary janes, smeared make-up, etc. It may not seem such a big deal now, but at the time you had to look like a boy to be taken seriously in the indie scene. So when Courtney Love (at the time the singer/guitarist in Hole) and Kat Bjelland (singer/guitarist of Babes in Toyland) introduced the “kinder-whore” look, it was revolutionary.  So, here are some pics of early Courtney.
