Paris Jackson and Francis Bean Cobain Are Fashion's Latest Pop and Rock Royalty Muses

The next in a long tradition of fashion finding inspiration in the children of the rich & famous


The fashion industry has a dual preoccupation with new and old.

What makes design and fashion interesting is it's combination of tradition, couture and fashion houses alongside street style, counter culture, the vulgar and the commercial.

This fascination translates into models and muses too.

Kate Moss in Galliano in 1995

On one hand the fashion world just loved the juxtaposition of a young Kate Moss from Croydon in Galliano, or picking up Gisele Bündchen in a Burger joint in Sao Paulo.

Giselle Büdchen in Chloé in 1998

Whilst in the other Isabella Blow (herself blue-blooded) brings Roald Dahl's granddaughter into the fashion fold and everybody loves a gander at the high-society Delevingnes.

Cara & Poppy Delevigne in 2014

And what better conflates the sense of new vs old than second generation famous children - think Georgia-May Jagger, Kendall Jenner, Iris Law, Kaia Gerber, Lily-Rose Depp and so on - who lie somewhere between dynasty and new kid on the block?

So, the list of family famous models is about to get longer with both Paris Jackson and Francis Bean Cobain being released into the fashion world.

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson has recently been featured on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine.

As well as getting her fashion credential sitting front row with Carine Roitfeld at Givenchy and Dior and hanging out with fellow famous-by-proxy turned fully-fledged famous models Bella Hadid and Sofia Richie.

Also, rumour has it that this Madonna-style photo shoot is for a Chanel campaign.

So watch this space.

Back in 2015 Frances Bean Cobain was likewise on the cover of Rolling Stone, where she was photographed by David LaChapelle.

But just yesterday Marc Jacobs put this up on his Instagram, explaining how he first met Frances when she was just 2 years-old.

Confirming Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love's daughter (kind of making her the 90s Blue Ivy) would be the face of his next campaign.

Proving that Fashion's preoccupation with dynasty and youth is far from over.
