Dannielynn Birkhead, the 6 year-old daughter of the latehas just landed a modeling contract with GuessKids at the tender age of six.
The photoshoot of the Spring 2013 ad campaign involved little Dannielynn, a chip off the old block with stunning looks reminiscent of mom Anna Nicole, traipsing on a beach with GuessKids apparel to include a white denim vest, blue jeans mini skirt, a striped T-shirt and metallic gold belt, all topped off with a jaunty little straw fedora!
The six-year-old tike follows in the footsteps of Anna Nicole Smith who too was a model for Guess before her tragic drug overdose in 2007.
Anna Nicole had secured herself a lucrative modeling contract with Guess jeans for their ad campaign in the early 1990’s, replacing another blonde,, a German model who resembles the French actress Bridget Bardot.
At the time, Guess chose Smith for her resemblance to actress, thus the retro themed series of steamy black and white photographs in 1992.
Larry Birkhead, Dannielynn’s father, says he’s extremely proud of his daughter’s new modeling career, though there will no doubt be a lot of criticism that this little girl will not be allowed a “normal” childhood and be under constant public scrutiny, embarking on a career at such a young age.
Birkhead also adds that his daughter was totally at ease during the photoshoot and is a natural at modeling, needing very little guidance or coaxing.
The budding model also gets a professional opinion from the Creative Director of Guessl Paul Marciano, who says that Dannielynn has the same “playful spirit that her mother had on a set.”
This will no doubt raise many eyebrows but the camera certainly adores little Dannielynn…
