Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of late rocker Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, celebrated her 19th birthday with an amazing photo shoot by photographer Rocky Schenck, who has also worked with Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise and Annie Lennox.

In her pics, she channels Hollywood stars of the forties and fifties in a series of retro portraits, color and black & white, projecting a sultry film noir look.

The beautiful teen, who has endured her mother's wacky behavior over the years, steps into the spotlight just a month before the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's classic album 'Nevermind.'

Fashion Director Amina Akhtar spoke to Rolling Stone about the famous offspring: "There's certainly a bit of nostalgia when it comes to Frances Bean. I mean, who doesn't remember the early nineties and where they were when they found out about Kurt?"

"There's no denying how absolutely stunning she is.  We all remember her growing up, and now she's come out into her own as this sexy, beautiful woman. But what really struck me was that she came across as strong, confident, and really herself. That's why she's having this moment."
