At GRAZIA, we love a celebrity documentary, especially when the person in the spotlight was a vision of glamor, style and personality. Netflix has announced an upcoming documentary, still untitled, that will give us a never-before-seen view into the life of model Anna Nicole Smith. While we don’t yet have a title for this documentary, what we do know is that it will seek to ​​offer “a unique glimpse into her life out of the spotlight, and her dreams as a young mother,” according to a Netflix press release.

Anna Nicole Smith was born Vickie Lynn Hogan, and was an influential figure in the 1990s and early 2000s when she acted as a model for Playboy as well as Guess jeans, until she tragically died from a drug overdose at the age of 39 in 2007.

“I approached Anna Nicole’s story as an epic mystery tale. How did someone with so much charisma and jaw-dropping beauty, with the world at her feet, fall so far, so quickly” documentary director Ursula Macfarlane said in a statement. “Now feels like the right time to re-examine the life of yet another beautiful young woman whose life has been picked over and ultimately destroyed by our culture. I am thrilled to work with Netflix and Propagate to make a moving, unflinching and sensitive portrayal of one of the most misunderstood women of our time.”

But in the years that she was alive, she curated a self that was beautiful as well as a life that was full of personality and style. In celebration of the upcoming documentary, and in honor of Anna Nicole Smith’s legacy, we decided to take a look back at some of the model’s best fashion and style moments to catch you up to speed when the documentary is finally released.
