This is something I just posted in a Courtney-related thread after reading some ignorant comments about her role in fashion. I want to post it here, too, if that's alright. I get hurt when I see young people saying such nasty things about this woman (or even just about her connection to the fashion industry), after all she's done to liberate me during my youth. I long for a day that this witch hunt is over and where I no longer need to defend her from these crucifiers. Here is:

Please do not enter the fashion industry if your scope of pop culture (and fashion, for that matter) knowledge cannot date back beyond the year 2000. And don't listen to what those lemmings with ombre hair say on the E! Network. Fashion is about originality, evolution, and having a clear voice. Courtney Love is the most interesting woman alive, I think, and she's single-handedly (yet, with little recognition) transformed fashion. In 1992, Courtney topped Vanity Fair's Annual Best Dressed List, praised by Eleanor Lamber, the list's creator, as "a leading fashion dissident." Love transformed dressing into a social statement; in too-small baby dresses, antique tiaras, hair-bows and loads of smeared makeup, Courtney developed "kinderwhore." Attending the 1995 Vanity Fair Oscar party in a thrift-store satin gown, a crooked tiara and lashes, and a face covered in white powder and red lipstick, she was able to use satire to directly mock the pageantry and inane expectations of women in America, as well as in Hollywood -- a woman can only be "beautiful" if she's mangled herself into becoming this Miss World archetype, or if she dumbs herself down and plays this nonthreatening childlike role in society (hence the baby-doll dresses). Courtney turned herself into a deranged barbie doll and paired this with the most powerful female rock performances ever to date. John Galliano developed a friendship with both Courtney and her late husband (allegedly, Galliano's card was found in the pocket of the coat in which Kurt Cobain died), Marc Jacobs sent Courtney and her husband his entire Perry Ellis "grunge" collection, Courtney was friends with both the late Liz Tilberis and Gianni Versace, attending shows with Gianni and being styled by Liz. Courtney has covered Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, The New York Times Style Magazine, glamour editorial in US Vogue--you name it! Not to mention, seven Rolling Stone covers and several other music-related publications. In 1997 she won the Vogue Fashion Award for Best Personal Style which was aired on national TV and gave a moving speech against homophobia, saying "I feel that keeping gay people in the closet with our attitudes and our actions is cruel and it's tacky and, most of all, it's boring," as the camera panned to Anna Wintour and John Galliano giving Courtney a standing ovation in the audience.
As for doubting Courtney's acting abilities, that's ridiculous. Courtney spent several years of her youth performing off-broadway Shakespeare productions and even worked in the costume department of Paramount Studios. Although her critically-acclaimed performance in "The People Vs. Larry Flynt" was regretfully snubbed by the Academy Awards in 1997, she attended nonetheless in a fabulous Versace gown with future-fiancé, the Academy Award-nominated, Yale-graduating, Edward Norton. After the tragedies of Courtney's childhood and the death of her husband, this thrust into superstardom--posing for a famous photograph alongside Elizabeth Taylor, Elton John and Donatella Versace at a Hollywood dinner party and attending yoga with Madonna being some of her daily activities -- Courtney felt pressure from all of this positivity and fell into a serious decline, struggling with a drug addiction that lasted several years.
Courtney Love has played every role. She's been at the top, at the bottom; she's been hailed as the Queen of Rock, producing one of Time Magazine's 100 Albums of All Time; she's been a joke to many cruel and ignorant people. As a threatening, strong woman, Courtney has been crucified by the media and covered in false accusations. I think she was more talented than her late husband and I, along with the informed people of the world, revere her as the most under-appreciated and misunderstood artist of the last century. And in fashion, Courtney truly was, and is, "a leading fashion dissident."

And here, I feel like adding one of Courtney's many transformations. Both looks are so beautiful to me.
