Dannielynn Birkhead honors late mother at Barnstable Brown Gala

Dannielynn Birkhead, daughter of the late Anna Nicole Smith, paid tribute to her mother at the Barnstable Brown Gala.

The gala is a Kentucky Derby event and one of the biggest parties in Louisville.

Dannielynn wore a stunning pink dress that her mother had intended to wear to the event.

The dress had been kept in storage since Smith's death in 2007.

Larry Birkhead, Dannielynn's father, said he was proud of his daughter for carrying on her mother's legacy.

Smith had attended the gala in the past and was known for her love of the Kentucky Derby.

Dannielynn also wore a fascinator in her hair, adding to the Derby Day style.

The Barnstable Brown Gala is a charity event that raises money for diabetes research.

Dannielynn has occasionally stepped into the public eye in recent years, attending events like the Kentucky Derby with her father.
