4 year olds bucket list

Monster Children

June 7, 2012



It’s hard not to talk about her very public beef with mom Courtney Love, or what it’s like to grow up as the heir and legacy of one of rock and roll’s most tortured souls, her father Kurt Cobain. But Frances Bean Cobain—named as such, as rock legend goes, after Seattle’s Frances Farmer and the fact that she looked like a bean as a baby—has done remarkably well avoiding publicity. Which, despite the air of tragedy and complexity around her, is kind of a shame, because as Hedi Slimane’s recent photo shoot depicts, she’s a magnetic and alluring young lady.

Slimane, famous for his stint at Dior Homme, sat down with Frances for a group of stark, revealing black and white photos that are simultaneously eerie because Frances looks like a woman (instead of the baby oft-photographed with her grunge-icon parents) and because Frances looks like the precise blend of mom and dad. But also, she looks beautiful, wearing little makeup and a lot of jewelry, staring down the camera like she was born for it (she was) and like she grew up in front of it (she didn’t). Romantic, introspective, and intense: more Frances, please.
