Courtney Love Gets Buttoned-Up

11/01/2006 at 02:00 PM ET

Post-rehab (with some surprising help from Mel Gibson), Courtney Love seems to be trying out a new look in keeping with her sober lifestyle. Gone are the torn baby-doll dresses from her Grunge days (even though that era seems to be back) and va-va-voom style. In their place she’s sporting tweeds, knee length skirts, even glasses — more befitting a mom and a published author (Love even had a proper book signing in NYC yesterday, left). She may still have a few fashion kinks to work out, but we think she’s heading in the right direction. Tell us: What do you think of Courtney’s new buttoned-up style? Do you like her new look?

I don’t love it.

Does anyone still care about Courtney Love?? She does, however, look better than her attention-deprived drug-ridden days. Kudos for getting clean.

Micki on

I think it’s a nice look for her. She looks mature and like a mother, which is a big change from her trashy days. I just hope she can keep up with her sobrity!

Angie on

It’s definitely a change from what I’m used to, but her style seems all over the place! She needs a make-up artist FOR SURE & maybe a personal stylist for her clothes. She’s definitely made a change from the past, and she looks happy. Good for her!


Way to go courteney,. Hard work pays off. And the new look is just perfect for a mom.

Jane on

She’s beautiful! She ought to dress up like that more often. She’s a beautiful woman and shouldn’t dress trashy like she does.

Lookin’ good!! Love the glasses (very similar to my own).

kathie on

I think its definitely a step in the right direction , although the animal prints and glasses are a little over-accesorizing. Still , what better way to start a new chapter than with a fresh , new look.

Andrea on

She is certaintly looking better than before, but could still use some needed maintaince. I’m not digging those glasses on her, but I think she just needs a different set of frames. Also, I think some sophisticated heels, not flats would look much better on her. Like I said though, an improvement from the intoxicated days!!! Good luck Courtney!

Her new style is hideous!! She went from trashy ugly clothes to conservative ugly clothes! This girl not only needs drug councelling, she needs style counselling!!
