Courtney Love is full of surprises, from lawsuits with her own daughter to hilarious late night drunken Twitter rampages. But in the new issue of Contributor magazine, she announced her new role as a fashion designer.
The line, Never the Bride, is "repurposed Edwardian, Victorian with an edge" and is modeled in the mag by Danish-American DJ/model Chloe Norgaard, whose multicolored hair was the talk of the Marimekko show. Considering that Norgaard's Twitter page has a dizzying technicolor background and identifies her as living in "Neverland," odds are that she and Love got along brilliantly.
Fashion Gone Rogue has some PDFs of the Contributor shoot, and they include a couple of predictably absurd quotes from Love, including, "I always felt that if I were a man, I'd be Sean Penn. He and Gwyneth [Paltrow] are arguably my two biggest inspirations when it comes to acting." OMG, does this mean that Courtney will write a guest post for an upcoming edition of GOOP? Someone please make this happen.
