Vickie Lynn Marshall (November 28, 1967 – February 8, 2007), better known by her stage name Anna Nicole Smith, was an American model, actress and celebrity who first gained popularity as Playboy's 1993 Playmate of the Year.
Anna Nicole Smith was obsessed with Marilyn Manroe. She even said she wanted to die like her. Anna's entire life revolved around her Marilyn obsession, as she had such plans to remake one of Marilyn's movies, and as you could probably notice, resembled some of Marilyn's trademark features (blonde hair, beauty mark, red lipstick). Even though the public did not think very highly of Anna, I need to give her credit for making something out of nothing. She become a famous billionaire overnight, by doing what? Being herself? I would like to see the people who critisize her pull something like that. Even though she did not carry on Marilyn Manroe's social graces or charm, she did know how to publisize herself. She will be missed.
