17-Year-Old Ireland Baldwin Wears a Bikini For Her First Magazine Cover (PHOTO)
Alec Baldwin’s baby girl Ireland is making a big splash on her first magazine cover. The 17-year-old stunner appears in a white bikini on Modern Luxury’s July 2013 Beach magazine.
The blonde beauty has only been signed to IMG Models since March, but she has already shot a piece for the September issue of Elle, which is the magazine industry’s biggest issue of the year, in addition to her recent cover.
"You just got to really be yourself when you're at these things," she told Entertainment Tonight. "You just can't tighten up and you can't get nervous. The moment you're nervous you're going to screw the whole thing up."
Ireland is totally bringing the all-American girl to her shoots by being herself, staying healthy, and dancing through the shots. She says she absolutely has to have music playing when she’s working. We feel ya, Ireland! Music keeps the blood flowing!
Her famous father and historic model mom Kim Basinger approve of her recent move into modeling, she says. "It's been, so far, just such a fun ride. They're really happy that it's building confidence for me and it's getting me out there, so I think that everyone's just motivating me to keep going with it."
As she “keeps going with it,” Ireland has plans to attend acting school down the road. She seems like such a natural in her modeling so far that we have no doubt she’ll be pulling out the big guns on the silver screen soon!
