Courtney Love's Best Silk Slips Through the Years
Courtney Love, who turns 52 today, is the foremost standard-bearer of the slip dress. While the look might be having a comeback in 2016, Love has been working its magic since before her band Hole broke through with the '90s grunge classic "Live Through This" — but with the success of her 1994 record, she and her bandmates were catapulted into the spotlight. Her palette consists of just four colors — black, bright red, blush pink, and ivory — with little deviation, and her look is remarkably consistent on and off stage. But as Hole has entered the annals of rock history, Love has also been welcomed into the halls of high fashion — as early as 2000, she sat front-row at Jeremy Scott, while more recently she's attended Givenchy, Diesel Black Gold, and parties for Ferragamo and Valentino. The silk slip has accompanied her every step of the way, and here, in honor of her birthday, we look back on some of her best silk slips and more over the years.
