New Photos of Frances Bean Are Haunting

Images removed by request

How time flies! Little Frances Bean Cobain—beleaguered progeny of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love—is nearly 19 years old now, and she has blossomed into her own woman.

She recently posed for French fashion designer and photographer Hedi Slimane in a series of stirring black-and-white photographs: the effect is really marvelous, all collarbone and shoulders and sinews. Slimane also made heavy-handed use of a lot of “martyrdom” and “lost childhood” imagery (I included a couple here for flavor), but the real star here is Frances Bean.

One caveat: if I could find a way, I would march up to my 19-year-old self and smack that life-ruining cancer stick right out from between her own two lips. Do you hear me, Frances Bean? Fine, I can see that you aren’t listening. Carry on.
