Legendary rocker Courtney Love has opened up on becoming Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's muse. Courtney says she met Tisci while in Paris once and she was surprised when he asked her to be his muse, but unfortunately she put on weight and had to slim down so she could fit in his samples. She says that she knew she had to drop down to that size because she felt the pressure to come through for the designer: ''I met Riccardo downstairs at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, and he told me he wanted me as his muse. I'm like, 'Givenchy's muses have been Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O!' Then I got fat! Then I got on Atkins and I wasn't fat anymore, so I could wear sample. You know, when the stakes are high, you do lose weight.'' Courtney jokes that the designer no longer creates designs with her in mind because he has a new muse: ''Riccardo doesn't make stuff for me anymore. He found Kim! But I still love Riccardo.''

Courtney admits that she doesn't enjoy shopping in stores but she is addicted to shopping online at Net-a-Porter and has become one of the companies top 5 American customers because she buys so much from them. Courtney laughs that she is always on the website looking for something new to buy: ''I hate shopping, so I order off of Net-a-Porter. A girl interviewed me for their magazine - this is so awful - she said, 'You're a legend at Net-a-Porter. You're one of the top five American clients for buying.' I live on Net-a-Porter.''
