Ireland is ready to take over America! Ireland Baldwin, the 17-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and ex-wife Kim Basinger, recently signed with the IMG modeling agency. Although she hasn't yet made her runway or magazine debut, the statuesque blonde is already making a name for herself. On Tuesday April 2, Ireland more than held her own sitting in the front row at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares 10th Anniversary fashion show in NYC.
Flanked by two glamourous, established stars -- actress Emmy Rossum to her right, fellow model Chrissy Teigen to her left -- Baldwin was the spitting image of her mom Basinger, 59, who was an established model herself before moving on the acting. With her blonde hair in a messy, stylish side braid, Baldwin wore a black blazer and a short black minidress, showing off her long legs in strappy heels.
Baldwin signed with IMG modeling agency and Two Managements last month. The 6'2" beauty spoke with reporters earlier this week about her role models in the industry. "I have a few, one off the top of my head Miranda Kerr . . .I look up to Kate Moss . . . and my mom of course."
