Cobain's Daughter New Face of Chanel

The 15 year old daughter of the late Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain, has been reported by Styledash to be the next Chanel poster child. We guess having over 130 pairs of shoes and 200 pairs of jeans as well as being "relatively" famous gets you into a contract with a high end fashion house these days.

The rock world's most famous offspring is widely rumored to be the front runner for the face of Chanel's 2008 campaign -- and she's only 15!

I had no idea she was even a model, but apparently Frances Bean is "overwhelmed" by the opportunity and ready for "what the Chanel experience may offer."

Perhaps youth is no stranger to the runways - but it seems to me that fashion firms are reacting to the backlash against pencil-thin models by going young. Anyone else see the same trend? Also, being a top model seems to be a lot more about who you are, or who your parents are, than your face. Look at Lydia Hearst. Weird.
