The phrase “like mother, like daughter” could not be more spot on when describing Anna Nicole Smith’s beautiful six-year-old, Dannielynn Birkhead. Just like mom, Dannielynn has found her way in front of the camera and started a modeling career as the new adorable face for Guess Kids.
The little beauty’s first campaign will debut this January along with Babyface’s daughter, Peyton Edmonds. The photos that have been released so far, show the tiny model on the beaches of Malibu sporting a white denim vest, striped shirt, fedora and mini skirt.
Dannielynn Birkhead’s father, Larry Birkhead, revealed to reporters the driving force behind the young girls sudden appearance in the spotlight. He says it’s a tribute to her mother. Birkhead’s hope is to shine a positive light on the successes of Miss Anna Nicole Smith’s career; more specifically, her time as a model for Guess Jeans. Creative Director for Guess, Paul Marciano, shared that the young star has the same “playful spirit” as her mother had in front of the lens. The fashion mogul’s positive portrayal of the little diva coveys that Dannielynn’s future in the industry looks very promising.
As most of us know, model and actress Anna Nicole Smith passed away in 2007 due to a drug overdose at the young age of 39. Many have blamed the starlet’s death on her quick and prosperous rise to fame. With this horrible tragedy plaguing the family’s past, questions are being asked about whether or not Dannielynn is too young for celebrity society and the attention that comes with a life in the limelight.
So what do you think fashionista? Should the mini model be kept out of the spotlight or continue to embrace the opportunities given to her?
