In her early career Courtney modelled a 'baby doll' look, which she may or may not have ripped off of Kat Bjelland of Babes in Toyland. Courtney's style has since evolved, and she has modelled for more sophisticated, designer labels.
Love attempted to begin a 'punk rock femme supergroup' during summer/autumn 2001 called Bastard. Currently 'Hole' is involved in a lawsuit.
Love has recently (October 2001) performed in some solo shows as an opening act.Courtney Love has also been an outspoken critic of the music industry, which she says exploits musicians unfairly.
In the 1997 film The People vs. Larry Flynt, Love received considerable acclaim for her role as Flynt's wife, Althea.
