From Missy Elliott to Cher to Bette Midler, Marc Jacobs has been keen on featuring music royalty in his ad campaigns from the past few seasons. Spring 2017 is no exception–Jacobs revealed the first image featuring Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. Photographed by David Sims, this is Frances's first-ever major fashion campaign.

"I first met Frances Bean when she was two years old at a dinner with her mom (Courtney) and Anna Sui in 1994 at Bar Six in NYC," Jacobs wrote on Instagram, "I have always wanted to work with Frances. Her beauty, uniqueness, and strength is something I have long admired and respected."

"Few things remain as constant as my continued inspiration from those whose honesty, integrity, courage, and curiosity lead them to explore and venture beyond preconceived boundaries," Jacobs continued.

Frances shared a behind the scenes shot on Instagram as well.

Her mother, who Jacobs calls the "Goddess of Grunge" was one of the faces of the brand's Spring 2016 campaign (also starring Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, and Susan Sarandon).

"COURTNEY, R(evolution) With my abundance of respect for Courtney Love’s musical contributions to grunge/rock culture and her status as this sort of, Grunge Goddess, it was her mesmerizing and extraordinarily moving portrayal of Althea in the film, The People vs Larry Flynt that simultaneously broke my heart and won my love. While I hadn’t yet met Courtney during my time as Creative Director at Perry Ellis, it was her then style that had a great influence on that now infamous “grunge collection” show in 1992. Courtney and I (and a then 2 or 3 year old Frances Bean) first met at dinner with Anna Sui in 1994 at Bar Six in NYC. I remember being quite taken by her deep, thorough knowledge of and voracious appetite for fashion and music. There has always been a genuine allure about Courtney that I continue to admire. The way she’d scream her lyrics from that gash of a red mouth to the hard rocking, wailing sounds of Hole. She was then and remains now, for me, the ultimate divine mess in a dress. Gone but no where near forgotten is the girl-woman Goddess of Grunge in her too small tattered dresses, the little girl barrette in her messy, scattered hair and beaten up brocade 1960’s evening shoes. It’s a long distance from the now iconic kinder-whore Courtney photographed by Juergen Teller for I-D magazine in 1994 to the movie star glamour of the powerfully aloof and infinitely present Courtney, photographed here by David Sims for our Fall ’16 campaign." -@themarcjacobs • Photographed by David Sims Styled by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair by @guidopalau Makeup by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16
