Pictures: Anna Nicole Smith's Unseen Bizarre Photo Shoot

| by Michael Allen

Before her tragic passing on February 8, 2007. Anna Nicole Smith posed naked and painted in gold, while pregnant with her now five-year-old daughter Danielynn.

The logo of the internet casino GoldenPalace.com was stencilled on her baby bump in black, running down to her left thigh.

Smith had agreed to become their spokesperson after her son Daniel passed away in 2006. The campaign was also going to be launch with an exclusive 'Anna Nicole' slot machine.

"As big fans of Anna Nicole, we felt a collaborative effort would be mutually beneficial," a company spokesman has said.

"Unfortunately, the tragic events that followed so closely after the photo shoot proved to be overwhelming for the starlet. Out of respect for her and her family, the campaign was immediately shelved."

According to GoldenPalace.com, the golden-themed photo shot was Anna Nicole's idea, who called it "magical."

"Like her persona, she wanted to capture the moment by doing something outrageous, memorable, and fun," the spokesperson said.

GoldenPalace.com said that by releasing the pictures they were paying homage to the starlet's "free spirit and zany sense of humour that captured a worldwide audience and countless devoted fans."

The 'Anna Nicole' slot machine has now been revisited and will be released to the public soon, according to GoldenPalace.com.
