Dannielynn Birkhead may only be 6-years-old, but she is already following in the footsteps of her mom, the late Anna Nicole Smith. Like Smith, Dannielynn is modeling for GUESS clothing.
“Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on set,” says GUESS creative director Paul Marciano. “She is a second-generation GUESS girl.”
Dannielynn appears in the Spring 2013 GUESS Kids ad campaign. Her father Larry Birkhead says he saw the campaign as an opportunity for Dannielynn to connect with Smith, who was the face of GUESS in 1992.
“I think that this is kind of Dannielynn’s way of paying tribute to her mom in her own special way,” the photographer explained on Tuesday’s Good Morning America. “To see her mom’s picture next to hers as a GUESS girl and say, ‘Hey, I was a GUESS Kids girl and my mommy was a Guess girl,’ that might be her only connection with her mom.”
Dannielynn was just 5-months-old when Anna Nicole died of a drug overdose in a Florida hotel room on February 8, 2007. Anna Nicole, a Playboy model and reality star, was 39.
