On the Cover of Paper Magazine, Courtney Love Looks Great

Much credit for this goes to photographer Richard Phibbs and shoot fashion director¬†Nicola Formichetti. Together, for the September issue of Paper, they have vividly captured Courtney Love to help celebrate the publication’s 30th anniversary.

Love will no doubt be pleased by the cover, as well as by the ethical behavior of her interviewer, Alex Scordelis. When the reporter visited Love at her Hollywood home and was told by Love’s manager to wait as she wrapped up a call with David LaChapelle, he resisted temptation:

As I wait and fidget with my iPhone, I notice a bound manuscript, The Girl With the Most Cake, on the coffee table. It’s Love’s long-awaited memoir. I’m tempted to skim for a salacious passage, but resist. From the next room, I can hear Love on the phone with LaChapelle, dishing Internet-crashing quotes that I wish I could print, but shall remain off the record. Her hyperactive white Shih Tzu, Sugar, gnaws at my shoelaces and occasionally jumps on my lap. After 15 minutes, Love reemerges, pulls a cigarette from a pack of Marlboro Lights and lights up.

Bravo! Given the hard living that Love has logged, she looks amazing for 50. The writer has the details on this daughter of anarchy as she returns to acting via the TV series Sons of Anarchy, continues her Love affair with cheese, and more.

P.S. Although Love is probably at this point used to the hate, reader comments at press time below the Paper cover story are largely venomous.
