Remember the times when Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer were conquering the world with their catwalk appearances? Well, a new squad of super top models is following in their footsteps, and it’s growing in number. Stephen Baldwin’s daughter Hailey Baldwin has just signed with IMG Models, one of the fashion industry’s most prominent agencies, officially joining the world’s biggest and most influential model gang.
The announcement came via both IMG and Baldwin’s Instagram accounts, where the 19-year-old beauty has nearly 5 million followers. Before becoming an influential It-Girl and Instagirl, Hailey spent a lot of time travelling from one movie set to another with her father, being then discovered at the age of 16. A former ballerina, Hailey Baldwin was born in Tucson, Arizona, and raised in Nyack, N.Y.
The blonde beauty informed her followers about the big news reposting an IMG Models shot that effortlessly captures Hailey’s essence, with her iconic messy bob and toned, sunbathed figure. “#Repost @imgmodels with @repostapp. — SO excited to now be part of the IMG family! ???? ・・・ NOW REPRESENTING: @haileybaldwin! Click the link in our bio to read more. #?? #IMGstars.”
Hailey has a sophisticated, yet exquisitely fresh Californian style, which is quite similar to the personal style of her BFF Gigi Hadid. Hailey’s power brows, often accompanied with an au naturel eye makeup and bold matte nude lipstick, will surely add an ever more astounding final touch to any kind of fashion campaign, photoshoot or runway show she will ever be featured in.
As for IMG Models, we could definitely state the agency indeed carries a lot of weight in the fashion industry, as above all it can count on names such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi and Bella Hadid (who signed their contracts back in August 2014) and former super model Gisele Bundchen (who is currently enjoying her success and retirement). IMG Models seems to follow the ‘be at the right place at the right time’ motto, as it has so far never missed an opportunity to hunt the world’s most promising It-girls on the main social media.
Besides being highly popular on Instagram, Hailey Baldwin has made quite a name for herself since officially debuting in Tatler in 2014. Despite still being a teenager, she has, in fact, already covered a few magazines, such as Jalouse, and advertised brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Philipp Plein and Topshop in either their runway shows or advertisement campaigns. Her forma mentis is that of an iconic It-girl, and you will likely find her hanging out with either the Hadids or, for instance, Canadian singer and heartthrob Justin Bieber (just check her IG account, it’s literally a potpourri of all that’s fashionable. Clothes, food and people included). Well, we surely are about to see incredible things!
