The newest model for Marc Jacobs is the offspring of the late Kurt Cobain and the inimitable Courtney Love: Frances Bean. A muse for Marc, she appears in his latest ad campaign.
Frances Bean For Marc Jacobs
Photographed in black and white by British fashion photographer David Sims, the waif-like Frances Bean has her mother’s sensual pout and her father’s vulnerability.
“I’m representing what a general, standard, average human girl would look like wearing these clothes. I think that’s why Marc picked me for this.” — Frances Bean Cobain
“I first met Frances Bean when she was 2 years old at a dinner with her mom (Courtney) and Anna Sui in 1994 at Bar Six in NYC.
I have always wanted to work with Frances. Her beauty, uniqueness, and strength is something I have long admired and respected.
Few things remain as constant as my continued inspiration from those whose honesty, integrity, courage, and curiosity lead them to explore and venture beyond preconceived boundaries.- themarcjacobs
