Frances Bean Cobain, approaching adulthood in Nirvana's shadow

frances-bean-cobain-4-rocky-schenk.jpgFrances Bean Cobain, the 19-year-old daughter of Courtney Love and late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, is almost as elusive a character as her dad was in the height of the Seattle-based band's popularity.

On the 20th anniversary of the release of her dad's seminal album, "Nevermind," we thought we'd catch up with Frances Bean to find out how she's adjusting to adulthood.

Although she's kept out of the spotlight most of her life (despite some public custody problems with mom Courtney Love) Frances Bean has given glimpses of herself to the public in the last year that have us every bit as intrigued as her pop did two decades ago.

Most recently, she posed for a series of grungy (sorry, it's the best word to use) photos for photographer Hedi Slimane. In them, she appears poised, provocative and downright hot. She also modeled for a series of '50s-esque photos for fashion photographer Rocky Schenck.

She's tried music, appearing as a guest vocalist for the artist Evelyn Evelyn in 2010. The same year, she debuted a collection of artwork titled "Scumf***" at a Los Angeles art gallery. She also spent a summer interning at Rolling Stone magazine.

What's next for Frances Bean? It's anyone's guess, but we're pretty sure we won't be disappointed.
