Frances Bean Cobain + Banana Republic’s Mad Men

Happy 19th Birthday Frances Bean Cobain!

Courtney Love and the late great Kurt Cobain’s daughter celebrated her birthday in style with this stunning photo shoot – grunge’s poster girl goes glam!

And on pretty much the same day as Banana Republic launches its eagerly anticipated retro-inspired MadMen collection – we could out-lust Don Draper in a competition if there’s vintage-look clothes involved!

Just an amazing image!

And another one!

Thanks Daily Mail for the pics!

And now…time to rob little bobby’s piggy bank and go shopping!

Fancy yourself as a Betty Francis or Joan Holloway? MadMen’s costume designer, Janie Bryant, who arguably has one of the best jobs in the world, has created Banana Republic’s collection inspired by the characters’ signature styles, but somehow the collection looks modern enough to wear into an ad agency today without looking like you’re off to a costume party.

We love the array of early 1960s dresses as well as the beautiful lace tops, tailored trousers and on-trend pussy bow blouses – perfect for those who want a little MadMen glamour without going the whole hog! And did we mention the delicious leopard print bags and cheap and chic pearls? *SWOON!* Check out the website pronto!

All pics from MarieClaire online.

Lace Tipped Dress £99.50, toughened up with polkadot sheer tights and shoe boots for a more current look

Full Circle Skirt £65, Tie Neck Top £55 left untied for a less Joan polished finish

Prim and proper in Navy Houndstooth Dress £110 and Pearl Brooch necklace £25

Playful for puddles- Leopard print mac £140 vamped up with a waist-cinching belt

Our fav dress- maybe in Blue Begonia Print £99.50

Tie Neck Blouse £55, Animal Print Cardi £59.50 and cute tailored trousers not listed on the website...yet!

We love how this collection can be the epitome of polished lady-like glamour (Someone call the Palace – Kate Middleton’s sure to love this!) or how it can be vamped up and grunged down by adding kooky tights, tough-girl boots and wayfarer-style shades – one of Rachel Bilson’s style staples.

We’re def popping into Banana Republic this Bank Holiday Weekend!
