Beauty Smoothie – Frances Bean Cobain

You know when the genetic lineage of a child is so cool that the polarity is reversed, creating a bratty nerd? In reference to Ab-Fab I call it Saffy Syndrome and I know it’s mean but there’s something just a teeny bit satisfying about it for us mere mortals.

Frances Bean appears to have avoided this completely, she has a look in her eye that indicates a maturity way beyond her 19 years, but I can imagine the education she received from her mother Courtney Love has been somewhat unconventional. Heidi Slimane just published these beautiful pics he took of a very grown up looking FB (with some extensive inking). Her look brilliant reflects the more Gothic feel we are heading into for Autumn Winter trending too. Ms Cobain you are our latest Beauty Smoothie… alexia inge
