Ireland Baldwin shows an incredible resemblance to her mother Kim Basinger as she attended the amfAR Inspiration Gala in New York on Thursday in a breath-taking black gown.
Ireland Baldwin, 17, ruled the red carpet when she stood on the steps of the historic Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, revealing that she is true Hollywood royalty.
And it was plain to see just how much she resembled her similarly stunning mother, actress Kim Basinger.
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger’s model daughter was dripping in glamour in a curve-kissing black gown with capped sleeves that rested on her arms and showed off her toned shoulders.
The sweeping train meant that the dress was long enough even for the Amazon-sized teenager who has inherited tall genes from her 6 foot tall father and 5’6 1/2″ mother, but surpassed both of them in height.
While the lace topped bodice of the beautiful dress hung low on her bust-line, the classic cut meant that the overall silhouette was elegant.
Large silver cluster earrings and heavy sparkling bangles added a dramatic touch, while Ireland Baldwin kept her makeup simple with pale lips, lush dark lashes, and smooth bronzed skin.
Ireland Baldwin’s hair is most often seen loose and natural like any carefree California teen, but for the special occasion she had it secured back in a sophisticated chignon with long, perfectly straight bangs falling over her face.
As she stared out with a sultry expression through the blonde fringe, Ireland Baldwin looked shockingly similar to her stunning mom, Kim Basinger.
Ireland Baldwin, who recently scored a top contract with agency IMG, recently told People.com she is working hard towards her goal of becoming a top model: “I’m getting into it. Doing it right. I want to know where it’s going to take me.”
She said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course also looks up to Kim Basinger.
“Oh! And my mom, of course,” Ireland Baldwin told People.
“My mom’s very happy she can finally give me tips. She’s always there, so she’ll stand in the back and say, <<Turn your head this way, or do this>>.”
