Ashley Diana Morris, New Guess Model, Is From Vancouver (PHOTOS)


Ashley Diana Morris, a Vancouver model who bears a striking resemblance to Anna Nicole Smith, has been named the new face for Guess Lingerie and Bikini.

According to her website, Morris was discovered by photographer Odette Sugerman in Vancouver, where the model lives.

Born outside Toronto, Morris has a degree from the University of Toronto in theatre and English literature. She had a role on Global TV's short-lived Canadian teen drama series "The Best Years."

Photos on Morris' Facebook page show her meeting with Guess designer Paul Marciano last weekend.

Morris is being called "the perfect mix of Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and Claudia Schiffer." She will be featured in Guess Lingerie's campaigns through 2013.
