3 Looks From Saint Laurent’s Fall 2013 Collection That Were Stolen From Courtney Love’s Closet

It’s not clear why Hedi Slimane decided to create a collection for Saint Laurent that is so clearly an ode-to-grunge from the 1990s but one thing is certain: he has a thing for Courtney Love, the female embodiment of that period. Baby dolls dresses? Check. Dressed-up leather with bare mid-riffs? Check. Tough looking black boots paired with fishnet tights. Oh yes, there was plenty of that, too. Let’s take a closer look.

Real look: I’m guessing Courtney’s stockings and boots weren’t high-priced or from a designer label. It’s hard to imagine paying top dollar for either of these items.
