It looks like Vogue Italia unabashedly tested the the limits of believability with their Courtney Love photo set, taking advantage of soft focus lenses, makeup and Photoshop in such a way that readers are given a blurry idea about what Courtney Love could possibly look like. They might as well have hired someone to draw a picture of her.

Were fashion magazine writers to fudge facts the way their photographers do, would that be acceptable?

That photoshop is magic maker....She looks rough in that pic on the right, i'd say it was a HUGE improvement.

She doesn't look like any of these pictures in real life. At all. She's a woman who's lived hard, is getting older, like the rest of us, gains weight, loses weight, drinks, does drugs, and has had too much plastic surgery. These pictures are almost totally fictitious, which has made me realize that there is nothing real in magazines anymore.
If you don't see it with your own two eyes, it doesn't really exist. : )

That's Courtney Love? I thought it was Cameron Diaz after sniffing a half-dozen empty hairspray cans.

And BTW, Dosita-in-denial, she didn't kill Kurt Cobain, stupid...Kurt Cobain killed Kurt Cobain. God, you KC worshippers in denial after so many years need to concentrate on something a little more productive. Why does everyone think that drugged-up grungehead walked on water? He's so overrated it's sickening.

I bet you still masturbate to his photos, don't you, dear?

Some of you sound like a bunch of ugly biter bitches that don't have much else to do than to bitch about other people. Mainly because your life's are a piece of shit bore. Come on people stop trying to be another writer for the Enquire and just shut your f.... mouths.
Maybe some of you should go and get your faces redone, how about switching your ass for your faces and your faces for your ass, might as well

The reason courtney looks different is that the Vogue shoot was done mid to late 2006, and courtney really did look like this back then, save some lighting and some blurring of wrinkles thanks to photoshop i suppose....Courtney's appearance changes dramatically in the second picture due to surgery she had in france december 2006...her nose is still swollen from what is either rhinoplasty or an operation on her septum, and her lips are swollen as she had them slightly deflated...i guess she was sick of the trout pout jokes....however everyone agrees she looked better beforehand.
