Fashion News Roundup: Courtney Pays Up, Riccardo Tisci Gets Religious, and the Fashion World Bets on Galliano's Successor

Courtney Love Pays $430k For Dissing Designer: Courtney Love will be paying dearly for ranting on Twitter about Dawn Simorangkir (aka the “Boudoir Queen”), who accused Courtney of ruining her business as a result. Courtney’ll be making payments through 2014. Courtney’s lawyer “doesn’t think she’s using Twitter” anymore. Smart. {The Hollywood Reporter} Riccardo Tisci Collaborates With Visionaire On Its 60th Issue: Tisci curates the entire issue, which features a never-before-seen Robert Mapplethorpe photo, Carine Roitfeld shot by Karl Lagerfeld, and something with Helmut Lang, though Tisci didn’t say what. The theme is religion, and if fashion is your religion, this will be an issue not to miss. It will be out in June for a mere $425. {Style.com}
