Guessing Game: Whose Pink Maribou Get-Up Is This?
Guessing game time! This pink maribou horror show is up for auction on June 26th at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Who could have possibly owned such a thing? Anna Nicole Smith!
Julien’s Auction will host an auction of Smith’s personal items, which will benefit a charity for underprivileged children she established after her son Daniel’s death, and a trust for her daughter, Danielynn. Larry Birkhead, Danielynn’s father, told Reuters he has spent the last several months “buried” in Smith’s stuff and has set aside some items for his daughter. He hopes to sell the rest of her possessions, however, for the Anna Nicole and Daniel Wayne Smith Foundation and to help pay the cost of little Danielynn’s education and security detail.
Smith wore the get-up pictured above to a 2004 Halloween party at the Playboy Mansion. (Although I could totally see her wearing something like this around the house!) But if pink maribou is not your style, Julien’s Auction has plenty more of the Playboy model’s schwag. You could pull up to the Wendy’s drive-thru in Anna Nicole Smith’s old 1992 Mercedes-Benz (a gift from her late husband, the billionaire oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall) or put your pooch to bed in her dog, Sugar Pie’s, pink canopy bed and traveling doggie bowls.
The full auction catalog — which also includes items belonging to Marilyn Monroe — can be bought from Julien’s Auctions for a cool $100. One hopes the public exhibition of Smith’s items will be free — if only to educate the public on what the hell rich people actually spend their money on.
