Lingerie Keepsake: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

It's hard not to remember the gorgeous blond bombshell that was Anna Nicole Smith when you see the lil likeness she is survived by — Dannielynn Birkhead. It's not likely that the one-year-old beauty will remember much about her mother as they were together for just months before the former playmate passed away. So it's natural that her father, Larry Birkhead, would want to hand some of Anna Nicole's keepsakes down to their daughter. It's his choice of mementos that is raising eyebrows. E! reported that Larry recently spent close to $3,000 at a celebrity auction for a pink bustier and white negligee worn by Anna Nicole. He hopes the garments will someday help Dannielynn understand her mama.

What do you think of these family heirlooms?

When did the baby get so cute? Last time I saw her she was crosseyed. I just figured her mom took a lot of drugs while she was pregnant. Maybe the baby will turn out pretty like her momma after all. Oh, and about the lingerie? What else are you gonna remember a mother like Anna Nicole by, an heirloom quilt? She was white trash through and through.

Wouldn't be normal in my family, but in their's... I think it is a good heirloom. That's who Anna Nichole wanted to be seen as.

By the time she's 20 years old she'll love having it.

It was something that was special to her mother and it might be special to her one day. I think it's OK.

Skanky side or not, that's who Anna Nicole was, in a sense. She made a living dressing like that. I heard it was owned by Marilyn Monroe as well?

I think he should show the good side of Anna, not the skanky side.

Dannielynn is gorgeous! But lingerie? What is Larry building up a wardrobe to get her started in the businesS?

This was a toughie for me, because I definitely understand that lingerie played a pretty significant role in Anna's life, and I understand the desire to explain that reality to Dannielynn someday. I'm just not sure that having the physical items there to show her will make it any easier. (especially if they didn't actually belong to Anna, like sofi pointed out) Plus somehow Larry Birkhead doesn't strike me as the kind of dad who will be able to explain that type of thing in a delicate, understanding way- I just worry that he's too skeevy.

You know if that was her mother then that was her mother I would give her those things until she's a grown woman but I see nothing wrong with it.

I read it was Marilyn Monroe's lingerie? Anna didn't wear it. He just wants to collect memorabilia for her. Maybe she can cash it in for college later on.

I think when she's old enough she'd be pissed that they didnt save it for her. At some point in her life she's going to want to know as many details about her mother as possible, and having actual tangible items would have a big impact on making her feel 'close' to her mother. PS - She is GORGEOUS!

I think it is fine. It is not like he intends to give them to her now. I think the best thing to do would be to wait till she's 18 or 21. I don't think the message will be, "here, have your mother's lingerie, she was a ho" but rather "here, have something of your mother's, she was beautiful and she wore this at this time"

I think that's a bit insane...

While lingerie seems a little inappropriate, it was a BIG part of Anna Nicole's life so I don't really think there is anything wrong with it. And I agree JenniJams Dannielynn is gorgeous :)
