tabloids and bloggers were quick to point out her ghostly appearance. The always upbeat Daily Mail claimed frightened onlookers "drew gasps" over her ghoulish "deathly pale skin" and painfully thin frame. Commentary across the gossip blogs were nearly unanimous in deriding Courtney for her "bride of Frankenstein" pallor and "crack addict" body. While the photographs do indeed suggest that Courtney might do well to put a little meat on her bones, I found them to be stunningly gorgeous. Courtney's alabaster skin appears to glow against the inky darkness that surrounds her almost as though she's her own light source. The ragged, see-thru lace gown suggests an elegant faded glory even though it looks like something yanked down off grandma's curtain rod. The eye can't help to be drawn to the saturated crimson red of her cartoon lips as they provide the only spot of color in the photograph. Bravo to the photographer who captured the essence of Courtney Love's erratic personality. I know many won't agree with me here, but I'd much rather see a real and slightly crazy human being in a see-thru dress than a bunch of vapid wooden-posed air-heads with see-thru personalities.
