Wait, is she an actress?!?! I thought she was a washed up singer?

Anyways, this is a hot mess. She looks like she needs to take a bath, as usual.

I always loved this campaign! Courtney isn't beautiful or anything but she gives the clothes a special charm. Thank you for posting, lucy92.

Usually I'm one for late 90's campaigns but this is just bad. Not even Avedon can make Courtney look good.

It's not bad at all, considering this is Courtney Love we are talking about.

As for her relevance and actress/singer debate, remember she was in People vs Larry Flung which was a big critics hit and she was in line for an Oscar nomination in 1997 ( ended up being snubbed though).

never seen most of these before, I love Courtney she definitely brings something unique and different to high fashion and she the dresses actually suit her well, not every shot works but I still like it.
