Last week we learned that 6 year old Dannielynn Hope Marshall Smith Stern Birkhead, the only daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith, has decided (with guidance from her father Larry Birkhead) to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a model for Guess. Today we get our first look at Dannilynn’s first official modeling photos. As you can see below, we got a preview of these photos last week but today we get to see the final product. Check ‘em out.
Dannielynn Birkhead is ready for her closeup. Two decades after her mother became a world-famous model for GUESS — and five years after her untimely death — the six-year-old daughter of Anna Nicole Smith makes her modeling debut for GUESS kids. In the ad, the pretty little girl strikes a pose on the beach as she wears a denim mini-skirt, white-denim vest, graphic t-shirt and a fedora. “Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set,” said Paul Marciano, Creative Director for GUESS?, Inc. in a press release. (The ads for the Spring 2013 campaign will appear on buses, billboards and more beginning in mid-January 2013.) Adds Marciano: “She is a second-generation GUESS girl, which makes this campaign a first for us.”
Without question, Dannilynn is a very cute little girl … and she looks really adorable in her Guess outfits. While I personally still have concerns about Dannilynn following too closely in her mother’s footsteps, I really want to believe that things will work out well for the little girl. I just hope that her father is able to guide her in a way that no one was able to guide Anna Nicole. Let’s just keep a good thought for Dannilynn Hope. Her life is just beginning, I sincerely hope she has a very long and very happy one.
