I was obsessed with Kurt Cobain when I was a teenager, and his death was a huge deal for me. My friends and I made a little shrine to him under our school’s flagpole and lowered the flag to half mast, much to the chagrin of the hippie-hating, young Republicans in our class. Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, who we remember in photographs as an infant clutched in the arms of her mother, Courtney Love, has managed to remain relatively out of the public view until this recent shoot she did for French fashion designer Hedi Slimane. The Cobain legend certainly continues to smolder in those eyes, which are very much like her father’s.
