In what has become an (unofficial) annual tradition, Anna Nicole Smith's daughter Dannielynn Birkhead attended the Kentucky Derby looking completely adorable.

The 7-year-old beauty and her father, Larry Birkhead, who live in Louisville, Kentucky, where the derby takes place, were all smiles as they walked the fancy Moet & Chandon red carpet.

Clad in a summery floral-print dress with a voluminous pink tulle skirt, Dannielynn looked every bit a little lady. She completed her festive outfit with a coordinating pink-and-blue fascinator adorned with butterflies. She also donned a matching set of butterfly sandals. While she's not entirely grown up just yet, it seems the older she gets, the more she resembles her model mom.

For his part, Larry wore a baby blue suit with a pink shirt and plaid tie to celebrate the 140th Kentucky Derby. He looked pretty spiffy, but Dannielynn definitely took the triple crown cake.

This was a rare appearance for the father and daughter, who have mostly remained out of the public eye since their one-hour special, "After Anna Nicole: The Larry & Dannielynn Story" aired in November 2013. That said, they might be moving back into the spotlight sooner rather than later.

The duo will appear on the season three finale of "Celebrity Wife Swap," which airs May 27. No, Larry isn't married, but he found a way around that… and swapped his sister with the wife of race car driver Helio Castroneves instead.

We'll have to wait and see how that all turns out, but for now, at least we know the visit to Churchill Downs is still a Birkhead family event.
