Courtney Love’s collaboration with Nasty Gal dropped today, and it is indeed, as promised, full of wearable lingerie and baby-dolls modeled after the ones Love wore in the 1990s. They’re cute and affordable, relatively speaking; one of the looks is almost identical to her quintessential “kinderwhore” ensembles, also reimagined in 2012 by English designers Meadham Kirchhoff. You could cop these! Or, you could just get a slip at a thrift, and wear it outside with some fishnets, like Courtney Love no doubt did herself.
Some of these are cute, though, and very functional if you happen to live nowhere near a good thrift, or live in a city where “vintage” costs a jillion dollars. The Malibu Satin Slipdress (above, left and middle, $88) has a slink and neckline similar to the one she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 1995—“it’s called ‘gorgeous lesbians in $20 dresses,” she said at the time—and the vampy Once and Destroy maxi (right, $168) has a glam cut and a leg slit du jour. I also feel like I could go to the nightie and camisole section at the Union Square Filene’s right now and find similar looks for less, but those would not be endorsed by Courtney Love.
