Courtney Love In Vivienne Westwood – AIDS Solidarity Gala & Life Ball 2014

Courtney Love In Vivienne Westwood - AIDS Solidarity Gala & Life Ball 2014

Courtney Love attended the AIDS Solidarity Gala 2014 held at Hofburg Vienna, and the Life Ball 2014 held at City Hall in Vienna, Austria on Saturday (May 31) wearing two Vivienne Westwood dresses.

AIDS Solidarity Gala 2014: The first was a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label burgundy wrap dress adorned with glistening sequins but without the usual Westwood nuances. This dazzling frock, featuring puffy sleeves and a V-neckline, was styled with pointy black pumps and a black clutch.

Life Ball 2014: The second look, which she wore on stage during the event, was classic Westwood, with the signature corset working overtime.

For Courtney, the first look is great; she looks surprisingly polished. But I can’t get over the excessive boobage and restrictiveness of the second look.

Courtney Love In Saint Laurent – ‘Stand Up Guys’ New York Premiere

Courtney Love looked to be in great spirits when she took to the red carpet on Sunday evening for the New York premiere of ‘Stand Up Guys’ held at MOMA.

I thought I was done with the Saint Laurent Spring 2013 collection, thanks to Lady Gaga who made it go stale very quickly, but Kate Moss and Salma Hayek have managed to breathe new life into this collection and Courtney has joined them.

The rocker has had some great times, some eyebrow-raising times and some frankly shocking times on the red carpet; this will go in the great times section.

Opting for one of the collection’s many boho maxi dresses with sheer sleeves and a tiered skirt, she styled the look with the same tasselled runway leather corset belt and a black shoulder bag.

It’s great to see Courtney looking so well dressed and healthy.

Who Wore Miu Miu Better? Anna Dello Russo, Camilla Belle or Courtney Love

Of the 39 piece Miu Miu Fall 2011 collection, this white floral print dress is proving to be the most popular.

Having seen the dress up close earlier this week, I was interested to learn that the floral print is accented with sequins.

Anna Dello Russo gave this dress its first outing when she attended several menswear Spring 2012 shows during Milan Fashion Week last month.

The Editor at Large for Vogue Nippon was never going to opt for a simple predictable heel.

Anna wore Miu Miu crisscross glitter ankle boots with from the same Fall 2011 collection, with green drop earrings and a gold clutch.

Next up was red carpet regular, Camilla Belle.

She wore Miu Miu glitter pumps with her floral dress to the Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s “Muta” event just last week.

Looking as gorgeous as ever Camilla added a simple Miu Miu pink clutch, Cartier jewels and pretty pink lips to complement her dress.

I am shocked to see Courtney Love wearing this Miu Miu dress to Ladies Day at Goodwood racecourse in Chichester, England yesterday.

The singer has such extremes in fashion going from “Fashion Forward” to “Hot mess” to “Screaming hot mess”, but she was surprisingly demure on this occasion.

With an elaborate feather fascinator and beige leather gloves, her lady-like look was paired with Giuseppe Zanotti snake-effect leather T-bar sandals and a snake-skin shoulder bag.

Anna wins for me on this occasion.

I ruled Camilla out because the dress makes her look thicker around the waist and Courtney Love’s snake-skin bag is so out of place with her look.

If you can’t make up your mind, click on the image above to see more pictures of the ladies in their Miu Miu dress.

You can purchase their Miu Miu dress from Net-A-Porter.com.

Courtney Love In Roberto Cavalli – 2011 El Museo Del Barrio Gala

Courtney Love was in New York City last night to attend the 2011 El Museo Del Barrio Gala.

Someone take my temperature because I’m can’t believe I’m going to say this.

The singer actually looked pretty good in her Roberto Cavalli gown.

I’m shocked because I don’t think I’ve liked a single Courtney Love red carpet look in about 2 years, but this beaded sequin gown is really working for her.

Not only that but she’s doesn’t look like she just stumbled out of bed.

Her make-up is actually very pretty and her hair is reasonably under control.

Courtney Love In Givenchy Couture – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

Things were going so well on the red carpet at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala, until I stumbled upon this picture.

Good lord, what did Riccardo Tisci ever do to Courtney Love for her totally ruin this Givenchy Spring 2011 Couture creation?

This is why I put up the runway pictures, because if I just said it was Givenchy Couture you would’ve never believed me.

Who Wore Givenchy Better? Keri Hilson, Courtney Love or Liv Tyler

This is going to be a tough one, because I’m not feeling the way any of these stars wore this Givenchy Ottoman stitch stripe jacket.

We first saw the Givenchy Spring 2010 jacket worn by Keri Hilson when she performed the National Anthem before the game between the LA Lakers and the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia back in March.

She kept the look very simple with a black top, black jeans and a black peep-toes.

Courtney Love arrived at the Groucho Club looking a bit tired following her performance at the Brixton Academy in London back in May.

She wore her jacket with a blue Balenciaga mini dress, Chanel ballet pumps and a tan Birkin.

Liv Tyler also kept the rest of her look all black when attending the “MOCA Opening Reception for Dennis Hopper” in LA last week.

She added an Alexander McQueen fold-over clutch to her look to stop it from being totally boring.

Liv wins for me because Keri’s jeans look too tight and Love is a hot mess.

Givenchy Hosts The Closing Of Maria Abramovic’s “The Artist Is Present” Exhibition

Last night Givenchy and Riccardo Tisci hosted a dinner party for the closing of Maria Abramovic’s “The Artist Is Present” Exhibition in New York.

Givenchy devotees Courtney Love and Ciara both attended.

Love looked surprising clean and well turned out wearing a black custom-made strapless sheer Givenchy gown, whilst Ciara opted for another look from the Givenchy Spring 2010 Couture collection which I simply adore on her.  She’s really working it.

Actress/model Veronica Webb didn’t opt for something so moody. She wore a black and white zig-zag patterned silk Givenchy Spring 2010 dress paired with black strappy sandals.

I was really excited to see Bjork back on the red carpet and it looks like she hasn’t lost any of her eccentricity.

The singer wore the boldest and brightest Givenchy look, wearing a gold ruffled dress from the Fall 2008 collection

Although I’m not crazy about her shoe choice, Christina Ricci was the best dressed at this event for me.

I love the sexy lace and feathered skirt of her Fall 2010 dress.

She is the Givenchy girl as she’s mysterious, cool, edgy and is comfortable going from Gothic to sexy.

Liv Tyler opted for Couture like Ciara. Her all black sheer look was made sexy with a pop of red to her lips.
