In Apil 1994, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, 27, committed suicide. A year later his widow, rock curiosity Courtney Love, was showing Vanity Fair writer Kevin Sessums her late husband’s ashes and samples of his body hair, and insisting, “I wanted his heart… I wanted to plant an oak in it and have it grow.” Also that spring, she attended the V.F. Oscar party with actress Amanda De Cadenet, then married to John Taylor of Duran Duran. A fairy-princess tag team, they arrived in vintage gowns and a matching pair of tiaras. No word on whether their limousine morphed into a pumpkin at midnight.” [x]
