Dolly Kei is a very interesting trend in Japan, and one of which Courtney Love is a fan.  The desrciption of the look is very vauge.  Wearers take inspiration from old Eastern European traditional dress, fairy tales, and other whimsical sources.  Dolly Kei, also called Cult Party, is a style I imagine on Claudia in Interview with the Vampire (my favorite book :).  The layers, mostly white dresses, and romantic accessories have a certain dark appeal, like Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales.  Tattered hems, and ripped lace bring to mind a vampire who has been entombed for centuries.  If I were the singer in some orchestral, goth band (Apocalyptica, Nightwish) this is how I would take the stage.
