Frances Bean Cobain makes modelling exception for Marc Jacobs
Jan 26, 2017
Daughter of Hole bassist Courtney Love and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain has been unveiled as the face of Marc Jacobs' Spring / Summer 2017 campaign.
Cobain spoke to Vogue about the decision, saying, "I don't think I'll be modeling for anybody else for a very long time... I wouldn't have done it with anyone other than Marc."
"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," she explained.
"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."
Of Cobain, Jacobs wrote,"I first met Frances Bean when she was 2 years old at a dinner with her mom (Courtney) and [fashion designer] Anna Sui in 1994 at Bar Six in NYC," in the caption of an Instagram post which has Cobain, now 24, wearing a dress from the designer's new collection.
"I have always wanted to work with Frances. Her beauty, uniqueness, and strength is something I have long admired and respected."
Cobain had previously modelled for French designer and photographic artist Hedi Slimane in 2011.
