Frances Bean Cobain's grown-up photo shoot

Rock star royalty Frances Bean, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, is all grown up (and tatted up) in bold new shots from photographer Hedi Slimane.

In the series of black and white photos, 18-year-old Frances looks strikingly like both her parents in worn clothing and goth accessories.

Pale and dark-haired, she also looks much more like an adult than the baby-faced kid we’re used to seeing in magazines and photos, such as in the snapshot above.

Frances interned for Rolling Stone in 2008, and debuted a collection of art last summer at a Los Angeles gallery.

    I can't believe this society anymore. All these ignorant, rude, judgemental comments because you are "holier than thou". Really, I mean really, my mouth is gaping at these comments. For God's sake, why can't we be human anymore? Are you so much better than she is? Do you know her? I'm sure all of you are professional photographers, too, since the lot of you find these photos "cliche and boring" and she must be a junkie, oh yes, I'm sure your narcissistic additudes towards someone you have never even met are getting you far in live, it's just reflecting the great things you have accomplished in life. I could not help but comment, and let me tell you I NEVER comment on anything. But she has no reason to be beaten down by anyone. Imagine if you read these comments as her. No one is perfect, no one. Let her have whatever look she wants, is yours so much better? Oh we know your style is so "in" and you are so stylish because her dark clothes are so "yesterday". As for the "poor cliche photos" by God is it not okay to do photos that aren't "in your face"? Maybe that's what the photographer and Francis were going for. Shame on us for such awful, inhuman comments. It is not up to us to judge ANYONE. No one is perfect, and that is incliuding me. Think before you write such negitive comments. She is beautiful just as everyone else.

    Wow its actually a bit shocking how many immature and rude comments there are. I think Frances looks beautiful and I love her Seymour Sunshine tattoo. I love Al Columbia. She is doing well it seems, not so in the spot light, very good. I don't think she looks like white trash at all, its simply darker beauty. Just because she isn't extremely girly or frilly doesn't make her ugly. Seems everyone has got such a 'holier than thou' mentality here.

    LIPSTICK on a pig, and a stale, cliche'd one to boot. i second this emotion as stated above, with a question for the "fashion industry":
    ARE YOU REALLY, SERIOUSLY, COMPLETELY OUT OF IDEAS??
    We all realize that LA fashion-photogs are approx 10 years behind the curve, and take their cues from the East Village's leftover test-prints, but even THEy must be hearing the phone ring:
    "IT'S 1987 CALLING... THEY WANT THEIR TROPES BACK"...
    anyway... with that, here's the dazzling quote from above:
    " Same old recycled Heroin Chic death-driven images that models were shot in in Vogue editorial type images during the Viet Nam war riots. Torn flags, cigarets hanging out of the mouth, death reference tats, blah, blah. Come on Courtney, you can do better by your daughter than this..... this is cliche. Especially given the fate of her father. She is a beautiful girl.....get with it and do right by her. I certainly hope some of the tats were temporary. This kid deserves better than this recycled goth, death-driven junk her parents dished out during "their days" of failure after failure.

    I live down the street from where her father died. My father died when I was a kid, so I think of her often when I see the house and the experience we have in common. I hope she remembers how much great music her father did and not how he died. He lived a short, intense life. Most people don't contribute as much as he did.

    Whatever her life may be, it's her to live. She's beautiful in a way that's refreshingly far from typical. The more ugly comments about tattoos and their representation of a person's worth, morals, STDs (lmao... what a joke!), the more the authors of those posts sound like idiots.

    Those photos aren't bad because the girls isn't pretty, they're bad because they're cliche and boring. Most 14 year girls have photos just like on their myspace page....black and white, trying to be moody, hand in messy hair and head slightly tilted. As artists, you should push the envelope- reinvent the wheel with every model. How about putting her in a tight pinstriped pencil skirt suit, then another with a 50's chic flair. Don't center her in every shot, take photos that make people say "wow, who's that" instead of "yeah, she looks like her mom". Definitely an artistic fail.

    She's not particularly pretty, much less "stunningly beautiful." She does have lovely coloring and eyes, but I don't think anyone would be interested in signing her if she were not Love and Cobain's daughter.

    Actually, the tattoos are beautiful. The creepy old guy head I could do without, but I assume it has personal significance to her. As for the folks trashing her for her parents, for her tattoos – she's a woman coming into her own. If I had her parents, I'd be bursting at the seams as well, with tattoos and whatever else it took to carve a real "me" out of all the hype and expectations. Cigarettes kill you, though.

    You losers don't know this girl personally. You looooove to jump to conclusions and judge her and have a little chuckle over your barely coherent comments. Let her live her life and make her own choices free from instant prejudice.

    By the way, I've yet to read a comment on how she has Kurt's features and how cool that is. I think it's awesome to see a musician I'm such a big fan of in the eyes of his child. Forget that he ended his life despite being a new father. Let's look up for a moment and take a break from looking down all the friggin' time.

    How sweet! All grown up and ready for rehab! Her mom must be so proud and her dad would be too!!!

    By the way... don't describe them as rock and roll royalty. Courtney's band has gone nowhere and Kurt died at the beginning of his band's potential. No where near royalty. Kurt will be remembered for a stupid suicide rather than any great contribution to music. Courteny has already been forgotten!

    I actually think the pictures are pretty. Yes, she's 18 and has tattoo's. Big deal. That was her choice. My son is a year older than she is. I don't know one person from this generation who doesn't have a tattoo. I've told him and all of his friends that they are the "tattoo generation," and that they may regret it one day. And maybe they won't. To them, it's just an expression of art. I think she's a beautiful young lady (and wow! doesn't she look like her father), who as someone said, probably does have a rough road ahead, but who's to say? I hope she tries to do better than either of her parents did. Time will tell. As we don't "know" her, she should be given a chance and not criticized. She's very young. She's been through a whole lot more in her life than many of us have. As is said, people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones!

      Everybody does NOT have tattoos. Some of us choose to express ourselves with our words and actions rather than doodling permanently all over our bodies. The script is nice, but lot of those tattoos on her are just plain ugly and ill placed.

      Branding yourself with somebody else's thoughts is actually worse than branding yourself with your own negative ones. Fandom and the loss of personal imagination is the biggest contributor to the decline of western art and culture – another person's poetry shouldn't give you feeling. It should just make you better understand theirs.

    Call me an old fart, but at age 53 I've known 5 people who've died of lung cancer. At some point in the not too distant future, Frances will deeply regret her choice to have adorned her body with bizarre tattoos ... and to have begun smoking.
