Dannielynn Birkhead, the daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead, was at the Kentucky Derby this weekend with her dad. The eight-year-old grows to look more like her famous mom with each passing year.

Always a little fashion plate, Dannielynn Birkhead was dressed to the nines for the Kentucky Derby, sporting a pastel pink Monsoon dress and matching headband, as reported by Us Weekly.

Dad Larry Birkhead matched his little girl perfectly, as he sported a pink jacket at tie that more than rose to the festive occasion.

With Louisville being their hometown, this is the fifth year in a row that Larry and Dannielynn Birkhead have appeared together at Churchill Downs. Larry spoke to the Courier-Journal the night before the big race.

"It took me two months to get my daughter's outfit together - shopping, and mixing and matching," he said while at the Derby's Barnstable Brown Gala--the night before he and his daughter walked the red carpet.

He says Dannielynn picked his outfit out.

"She had my outfit ready--she said, 'Dad, you have to wear this outfit,' then she said 'It doesn't look right, you'll embarrass me, so wear this [instead],'" Larry Birkhead said.

It's plain to see that little Dannielynn Birkhead is growing up with plenty of love and attention--and that her dad isn't neglecting the fashion attention her mom would have wanted him to pay to their daughter. Whenever the father-daughter duo are spotted in public, Dannielynn is dressed like a million bucks.
