Marc Jacobs Enlists Frances Bean Cobain, Daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, for New Campaign

Succeeding icons like Cher and Winona Ryder, Frances Bean Cobain, progeny of Kurt and Courtney Love, has been cast as Marc Jacobs' latest campaign star in a representation of "what a general, standard, average human girl would look like wearing these clothes," as she said in an interview about the new images.

"I don't model unless I think the project is cool, and I don't put my name behind something that I don't genuinely believe in," the 24-year-old said. "I thought this collection was great, and I was flattered that Marc thought of me for this. What I said to Marc when I was saying yes was that he's an underdog for the masses. He's still very rebellious within the fashion world, and he's been like that his entire career."

And the feeling appears to be mutual, judging by the designer's caption, in which he praises the young artist for her "beauty, uniqueness, and strength"—and tells an epic anecdote.
