Ireland Baldwin has been getting tips from her model turned actress mother Kim Basinger.
Ireland Baldwin, 17, daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, is hoping she will be able to replicate her mother’s career thanks to their shared good looks.
The teen model 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.”
Ireland Baldwin said she was inspired by a number of contemporary models including Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, but of course looks up to her mother Kim Basinger.
“Oh! And my mom, of course,” she 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>>.”
At 6′ 2″ Ireland Baldwin certainly has the height to be a model and at a shoot on Tuesday she proved not only can take tips from her mother – she can also channel her.
Last month Ireland Baldwin was signed by IMG models and has been working solidly ever since.
Kim Basinger’s daughter announced the news on Twitter: “Officially working for @TwoManagement and @IMGmodels! I’m blessed, happy, and ready to WEEEEERK.”
