COULDN'T WE HAVE WAITED TILL SHE WAS 16 OR SO?

Before she became a grotesque, pimped-out, coked-up parody of herself, Anna Nicole Smith was a Guess model who gobsmacked the world with her stunning beauty. 

Of course we all know how that story ended, and in the six years since her gritty end, she has pretty much faded from public memory.
But Guess has launched a new campaign with a young model who is eerily reminiscent of Anna Nicole: her daughter, Dannielynn Birkhead.

Dannielynn is the foreshadowy new face of Guess Kids, stepping into the role 20 years after it did great things for her mom. The brand's Svengali  creative director Paul Marciano says Dannielynn "has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set." (Except that Anna Nicole was an adult and Dannielynn is SIX FRIGGIN' YEARS OLD!) "She's a second-generation Guess girl, which makes this campaign a first for us,"  Marciano says.

And . . . Yes, well . . . am I the only one who's a little creeped out by this?
