‘I felt like I looked pretty good’ ... Courtney Love arrives at the Golden Globes in 2000. Photograph: Bei/Rex/ShutterstockI was going to wear Versace to the Golden Globes in 2000 – it was already in my wardrobe – but the dress I ended up wearing was from John Galliano’s Christian Dior haute couture collection that was “inspired” by homelessness [the New York Times described the contentious collection as “tasteless chic”]. My good friends Arianne Phillips [the costume designer] and Joe Mama-Nitzberg [the artist] called me and said: “You have to wear couture!” I didn’t really get couture until this. My mind was blown – I thought: “This is what they were talking about.”The dress arrived and it was ridiculous. It was straight up and down and had twine on it. On the twine there was a book of matches, glass, all this taxidermy. I remember thinking: “OK, it’s crazy-looking, but I’ll make it work.”I lived next door to Carrie Fisher at the time and Meryl Streep happened to be at her house. I put the dress in an Armani carry bag and told my daughter, Frances, to give it to Meryl. She came back with a polaroid of Meryl goofing around in the gown and I just lost it; it was so funny.I made alterations, which really changed the dress. My assistant’s boyfriend was very slender and about my height, so he became my model. I was taking bits off, sewing on to it. I bite my nails, so I wore acrylics, but they were painted turquoise with glitter streaks to match my original outfit. I am a big believer in matchy-matchy, but [when I changed my choice of dress] I didn’t have time to take them off. I also did stupid stuff like jump up and down on a mini trampoline with my arms and legs in plastic bags so I would lose sweat weight, but I fit into it and I felt like I looked pretty good.A lot went into this look and it was controversial when I wore it. I have big boobs and it was important that they didn’t fall out. I don’t think tit-tape really works and looking back I don’t know how I kept it on – it was a miracle. I think maybe I glued it.

It’s hard to believe, but Jennifer Aniston turns 50 today. The ‘Friends’ star became a global style sensation during the popular sitcom’s run and even sparked one of the biggest hair trends of the 90s: ‘The Rachel’ cut. Since ‘Friends’, Aniston’s taken to hundreds of red carpets, debuting her classic, sartorial prowess on a regular basis. The actress’ fashion formula is well-established. She’s always had a penchant for black dresses, which she’s worn on repeat, in various styles, over the years. There’s also the odd pop of red peppered with a couple of subtle, pastel shades. Some might call the star’s wardrobe unexciting, but there’s something to be said for simple, sleek style that stands the test of time and isn’t dictated by current trends. In celebration of the actress’ big day, we chart Jennifer Aniston’s greatest fashion hits to date – from a plunging Versace number, worn at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in LA in 2017 to a metallic mini worn to an awards event in 2009.
