Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead’s daughter Dannielynn Birkhead is paying tribute to her late mother with a new campaign for Guess. Her photoshoot for the Guess Kids campaign is set to roll out in January and will see her face on billboards, in magazines and on buses.
Larry said of his daughter’s involvement in the campaign, “Dannielynn has always looked up to her mom’s image and said her mom’s an angel. I think that this is kind of Dannielynn’s way of paying tribute to her mom in her own special way.”
He said, “It’s really a tribute to her mom more than anything. She’s not going to be a model. Her mom’s history with Guess was very positive. The ads were iconic and timeless. She asked me if she was going to be on the shopping bags like her mom. She was really excited about it. She had a great time on the shoot. It was really just a day at the beach, playing in the sand.”
He continued, “People have said she’s already stepping into her mom’s shoes, and that’s very broad. I want to be clear this was just a tribute. She’s still a kid at heart, and she’s going to stay that way as long as possible.”
He added, “To see her mom’s picture next to hers as a Guess girl and say, ‘Hey, I was a Guess Kids girl, my mommy was a Guess girl’, that might be her only connection with her mom.”
What do you think of Dannielynn modeling for Guess? The ads are tasteful, but she is a bit young, no?
