Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, model for GUESS Kids

24 Nov

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and this is just another way to prove it. Dannielynn Birkhead is following in her mom’s famous footsteps as the new face of GUESS Kids.

Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead’s 6-year-old daughter is stepping into the fashion world as ambassador in the label’s Spring Summer 2013 campaign.

“Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set,” says Marciano. “She is a second-generation GUESS girl, which makes this campaign a first for us.”

Directed by the brand’s Creative Director, Paul Marciano, little Dannielynn posed pretty for the clothing line on the Malibu beach for Elliston Lutz lenses.Thankfully, there is nothing overtly sexual or inappropriate in the shoot at all. We think she looks gorgeous and exactly how a six-year-old should look.

The ads will start appearing in magazines, on billboards and on buses beginning in January 2013.

After an extended paternity dispute with Smith’s partner Howard K. Stern, Dannielynn’s father was confirmed (via DNA test) to be Larry Birkhead. Being too small, Birkhead, 39, open up about life as a sigle dad and how he explains Anna Nicole’s tragic death.

“Dannielynn knows that her mom passed away. She obviously doesn’t know the details. “At first I said, ‘Your mommmy’s up in the clouds.’ Then we were on a plane from Kentucky and she asked, ‘Which cloud is my mom on. Maybe she can come play?’ You have to be forthright but keep it on a kid-friendly level.”

Looking back in 1992 at Anna Nicole Smith iconic photos for Guess, Dannielynn is glowing as her mother with her light eyes and flowy hair.

Fingers cross out for the little one to be safe and strong and learn a valuable life lesson from her mother’s mistakes.
